IBM Spectrum Storage Suite gives you unlimited access to all members of the IBM Spectrum Storage software family with licensing on a flat, cost per TB basis to make pricing easy to understand and predictable as capacity grows. Structured specifically to meet changing storage needs, the suite is ideal for organizations just starting out with software-defined storage as well as those with established infrastructures who need to expand their capabilities.
The IBM Spectrum Software Suite offers a complete set of software defined storage solutions. If you would like to know more, below we cover all member softwares of the Spectrum Software Suite.
IBM® Spectrum Protect™ Plus is a data protection and availability solution for virtual environments that can be deployed in minutes and protect your environment within an hour. It simplifies data protection, whether data is hosted in physical, virtual, software defined or cloud environments. It can be implemented as a stand-alone solution or integrate with your IBM Spectrum Protect environment to off-load copies for long term storage and data governance with scale and efficiency.
IBM Spectrum Protect™ can simplify data protection where data is hosted in physical, virtual, software defined or cloud environments. With IBM Spectrum Protect, you can choose the right software to manage and protect your data while also simplifying backup administration, improving efficiencies, delivering scalable capacity and enabling advanced capabilities. With superior virtual machine (VM) protection, IBM Spectrum Protect integrates with IBM Spectrum Protect Plus for fast and easy VM protection with searchable catalog and role-based administration.
IBM Spectrum Accelerate is a software-defined block storage solution designed for rapid and flexible deployment across heterogeneous infrastructure on and off premises. It can be deployed on your choice of servers: x86 commodity-choice hardware, integrated appliances (including IBM XIV Storage System Gen3 and pre-validated third party appliances), and IBM public cloud. Based on proven XIV technology, it provides the block storage component of IBM Spectrum Storage, and extends flexibly through IBM Spectrum Storage suite level and IBM Spectrum Accelerate ecosystem level licensing.
Enterprises and organizations are creating, analyzing and keeping more data than ever before. Those that can deliver insights faster while managing rapid infrastructure growth are the leaders in their industry. Delivering those insights, an organization’s underlying storage must support both new era big data and traditional applications with security, reliability and high-performance. IBM Spectrum Scale™ meets these challenges as a high performance solution for managing data at scale with the distinctive ability to perform archive and analytics in place.
The era is over in which organizations focused on infrastructure more than information, often disregarding cost and shortchanging the business functions that the infrastructure was supposed to support. Instead, organizations today are searching for better ways to store, manage, protect and use their data, including private clouds or hybrid clouds that combine on-premises and cloud storage for higher flexibility at lower cost. IBM Spectrum Virtualize provides a new solution to meet this challenge including hybrid cloud configurations using both continuous mirroring and snapshots.
IBM® Spectrum Control™ Storage Insights provides an unparalleled level of visibility across your storage environment to help you manage complex storage infrastructures and make cost saving decisions. It combines proven IBM data management leadership with proprietary analytics from IBM Research. As a cloud based service, it enables you to deploy quickly and save storage administration time while optimizing your storage environment. It also helps automate aspects of the support process to enable faster issues resolution.
IBM Spectrum Archive™ a member of the IBM Spectrum Storage™ family, gives you direct, intuitive and graphical access to data stored in IBM tape drives and libraries by incorporating the Linear Tape File System™ (LTFS) format standard for reading, writing and exchanging descriptive metadata on formatted tape cartridges. Spectrum Archive eliminates the need for additional tape management and software to access data. Spectrum Archive offers three software solutions for managing your digital files with the LTFS format: Single Drive Edition, Library Edition and Enterprise Edition.
