IBM Extends Backup with New Cloud Services

IBM has changed the way clients protect, store and retrieve their most critical data through its new cloud services. Disasters can cause significant damage to businesses and the company claims that the new IBM SmartCloud Resilience services allow clients to retrieve their most critical data in minutes versus days in the event of a disaster.

Organizations need to prepare for unforeseen circumstances, according to IBM that advises businesses to assess threat risks and create a resilience strategy to facilitate uninterrupted business operations.

A traditional data center environment does not completely address all these requirements but IBM says its new IBM SmartCloud Resilience services can.  Thanks to IBM, customers can now protect their data and applications faster, cheaper and in a more flexible manner than they could previously.

The new services include IBM SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery service and IBM SmartCloud Archive. The first service increases the reliability and efficiency of recovery to help practically eliminate business downtime, and minimize data loss.

IBM SmartCloud Archive enables clients to deal with structured and unstructured content; control over rising data storage costs; and improved availability of critical business content.

Now more than ever, companies are relying on a massive amount of data to run their businesses, storing it longer and retrieving it as needed,” said Rick Ruiz, general manager of IBM’s Business Continuity and Resiliency Services. “This creates a need for a business resilience strategy that will ensure continuous operation and create a competitive advantage to enable growth opportunities. Our new cloud services bring flexibility, scalability, and rapid provisioning to help accomplish that.”

With new regulations like compliance and increasing security and data demands on our network, we have made it a priority to protect our data and ensure we have the right disaster recovery plan in place,” said Jessica Carroll, managing director, Information Technologies, USGA. “In working with IBM on this multi-year project and tapping their business resilience and cloud expertise, we have put in place a flexible infrastructure recovery solution that ensures the availability and resiliency of our core business functions.”
