Today many organizations are using some form of cloud services, whether private, public or hybrid cloud, and storage infrastructure is an integral part of these deployments. Another noticeable trend in the data center is to get more value from backup data than just post-disaster data recovery. Reusing backup data for new use cases such as DevOps and analytics allows IT organizations to derive more value from their data.
This IBM Blueprint describes how to bring together an on-premises virtual IT infrastructure and an IBM Cloud™ public cloud deployment in a single disaster-recovery solution and manage the overall environment with IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. Real-world examples demonstrate the business value of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus, with Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases, and VMware virtual machines (VMs).
