IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management

Copy Data Management makes copies available to data consumers when and where they need them, without creating unnecessary copies or leaving unused copies on valuable storage. It catalogs copy data from across your local and hybrid cloud and off-site cloud infrastructure, identifies duplicates, and compares copy requests to existing copies.

IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management Starter Edition, which is part of the IBM Spectrum Protect portfolio, is now available to be ordered along with IBM FlashSystem storage. This provides clients with the flexibility to experience Copy Data Management with more affordable pricing.

Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System (Oracle ACFS) support enables IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management to work in Oracle ACFS environments.

Description

Top rule

IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

Protect Amazon cloud-based workload EC2 instances using EBS snapshots

Additional capabilities for IBM Spectrum Protect Plus enable users to protect Amazon EC2 instance data. This means administrators can protect these EC2 virtual machines in the same way they protect their other critical workloads. They can also simplify data protection for AWS EC2 instances by creating SLAs and managing Amazon EBS snapshots.

Note: By Amazon design, EBS snapshots are stored in Amazon S3, not in the vSnap repository.

Lower costs and provide air gap protection by utilizing tape for long-term data retention using retention set copy to tape

With the retention-set-to-tape feature in IBM Spectrum Protect, an administrator can copy long-term retention data to tape for offline protection. When the data is stored on tape, the tape volumes can be physically removed from their tape library or taken offsite for long-term storage. By securing retention sets in this way, users can help to protect the data from malware and physical disasters, as well as lower overall costs.

Optimized cloud disaster recovery utilizing object storage for protection of the IBM Spectrum Protect database

This capability enables administrators to back up and restore the IBM Spectrum Protect server database directly to or from object storage. IBM Cloud® Object Storage, AWS S3, Microsoft Azure, and all supported S3 targets that have been validated through the Ready for IBM® Storage program can be used. This capability means administrators can use object storage for protecting both data and meta data for a complete cloud-based disaster recovery solution.

Intelligently manage protection of persistent volumes in a Kubernetes environment by using the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus user interface

In addition to the Kubernetes command line, users can now utilize the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus user interface to back up and restore persistent volumes. Users can create custom SLA policies that include snapshot, copy backup, replication, object storage policies, and archive policies to protect persistent volumes. Snapshots can be copied to the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus vSnap server, and the data on the vSnap server can be replicated or copied to standard or archive object storage. In addition, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus has Kubernetes label and namespace awareness which means it can intelligently snapshot persistent volume claims associated with a given application.

Protect file system data through agentless data protection of Windows physical and virtual machines

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus enables users to protect data in Microsoft Windows New Technology File System (NTFS) and Resilient® File System (ReFS) file systems. Users can either create SLA policies to run regular scheduled backup jobs or run on-demand snapshots of their Windows file systems data.

Dashboard view of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus operations through IBM Spectrum Protect Operations Center

This feature simplifies administration for those utilizing both IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. An administrator can now monitor IBM Spectrum Protect Plus operations directly within the IBM Spectrum Protect Operations Center. Additionally, an administrator can launch the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus user interface directly from the Operations Center. An administrator can also launch the IBM Spectrum Protect Operations Center directly from the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus user interface.

Additional expanded support

The following environments are now supported:

  • Oracle ACFS support enables IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management to work in Oracle ACFS environments
  • Support for multiple NICs on vSnap server enables users to assign each network interface to backup, restore, or replication processing
  • For SQL databases, users can set the database to restore in a standby mode with IBM Spectrum Protect Plus
  • For VMware® environments that support the HotAdd virtual disk transport method, users can choose to use this method as the preferred method to connect the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus virtual appliance with VADP proxies
  • SAP HANA
    • Tighter integration between IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management enables an all-around solution for quick backup and restore along with the ability to copy data to IBM Spectrum Protect for more protection
    • Simplified and improved point-in-time recovery for SAP HANA with native log backups using IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management and IBM Spectrum Protect for Enterprise Resource Planning
    • Enhanced SAP HANA RPOs and RTOs for unplanned outages through data and log snapshots in IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management

IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management

IBM Copy Data Management Starter Edition is available to be ordered along with IBM FlashSystem storage. IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management Starter Edition is used for protecting data through simple and intuitive orchestration that works in concert with IBM FlashSystem hardware snapshot features.

IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management Starter Edition can be purchased with up to 5 TB of managed capacity for a FlashSystem storage device. Additional IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management capacity can be purchased separately.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
