A recent blog post out of IBM states, “Today, IBM Storage — the #2 storage software vendor by revenue market share — is announcing a wide-ranging set of innovations to our software-defined storage (SDS), data protection and storage systems portfolio. Driven by the exponential volumes of data growth and the underlying value in this huge treasure trove of information, many 21st century enterprises are moving quickly to modernize their traditional IT infrastructures while taking advantage of multi-cloud architectures and AI applications. Continuing IBM investments in enhancing our SDS, data protection and storage systems capabilities, these announcements demonstrate IBM’s commitment to IBM storage solutions as the foundation for multi-cloud and cognitive/AI applications and workloads.”
The post goes on, “Innovations and enhancements across the IBM Storage portfolio expand the range of data types supported, deliver new function, and enable new technology deployment: IBM Spectrum NAS delivers enterprise capabilities and SDS simplicity with cost benefits for common file workloads, including support for Microsoft environments. IBM Spectrum Protect Plus, an easy-to-use backup solution for virtual environments, is improved with enhanced database support and faster restores. IBM Spectrum Protect Plus provides simple automated data protection and provisioning for VMware in IBM Cloud. IBM Spectrum Protect helps address data security concerns with support for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and automated detection and alerting of ransomware.”
