Data Storage Management Portfolio. Recovery. Reduction. Cloud Storage. Resource Management.
Is your organisation facing an explosion of data?
Digitised information can be misplaced among volumes of useless data, accidentally deleted or stolen. Managing this rapid data growth requires a forward-thinking storage management solution – one that helps you understand, classify, protect and retain your data according to its purpose and value. Most importantly, it needs to do it cost-effectively.
IBM offers comprehensive, flexible storage software solutions that help organisations address storage management challenges across the enterprise, including data centres, remote and branch offices, and desktop and laptop computers.
IBM storage software solutions are part of IBM’s Service Management strategy and portfolio, and are designed to help you create a more responsive and resilient storage infrastructure for your on-demand business.
