IBM announced it’s extending the data-resilience capabilities of existing IBM data protection products and introducing new workload-specific solutions for SAP HANA and Salesforce.
The IBM Safeguarded Copy capability, which currently enables IBM FlashSystem and IBM DS8000 clients to create cyber-resilient immutable snapshots, is now available to clients running IBM’s Spectrum Scale high-performance global data platform, bringing logical air-gapping to unstructured data sets. This solution provides organizations with a consistent approach to safeguarding data, regardless of where it’s located or how it scales up or out, according to IBM.
Complementing the comprehensive capabilities that IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus bring to on-premises and cloud-based applications respectively, today IBM is enhancing workload-specific data resilience with the announcement of IBM Sentinel for SAP HANA and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Online Services for Salesforce.
IBM Spectrum Sentinel for SAP HANA is an end-to-end automated cyber-resilience solution that performs ransomware anomaly analysis of immutable SAP HANA primary storage snapshots and provides automated recovery orchestration functions.
Using the same technology as IBM Spectrum Sentinel for Epic, IBM Spectrum Sentinel for SAP HANA is designed to enhance protection for this popular in-memory enterprise database management system.
IBM Spectrum Sentinel for SAP HANA uses IBM Spectrum Copy Data Management to create immutable, application-aware Safeguarded Copy backups that it scans for malware, using machine learning to detect signs of possible corruption and generate forensic reports.
IBM Spectrum Sentinel can intelligently isolate infected backups, helping your organization to identify the most recent verified and validated backup copies and accelerate time to recovery, according to the company.
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Online Services delivers a data backup and recovery solution that enables clients to easily backup and restore cloud-based SaaS workloads.
Other parts of the IBM Storage portfolio have also been enhanced, including:
- IBM FlashSystem storage arrays now feature policy-based replication capability and encryption on the wire for FlashSystem replication.
- IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus have new data security enhancements.
- IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud on Azure 8 adds functionality for currency with IBM Spectrum Virtualize on FlashSystem and with IBM Spectrum Virtualize appliances, including support for the new policy-based asynchronous replication capability.
