As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center.
In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.
Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.

Backup and recovery have been a constant for organisations over the years, often not seen as glamorous aspects of an IT environment but as solutions that are necessary all the same. Environments have changed over the years and the focal use for backups have changed with them, although your solutions may not have.
Taking a simple off-site backup, whether this be to disk, tape or other removable media, would once have been the last line of defence for data protection. Solutions were reliable and ensured data could be recovered in a timely manner.

IBM’s Spectrum Protect offering boasts more than 20 years of achievement in the protection and recovery of key IT systems. So, it would be easy to suppose that IBM’s new Spectrum Protect Plus and Spectrum Copy Data Management software offerings simply represent “Spectrum Protect with extra features.” That assumption would be incorrect. They are standalone, reimagined approaches aiming to solve a daunting IT challenge—virtualization protection/recovery—and aspiring to attain a coveted IT outcome—effective data management and enablement (DM&E), referred to by many as “copy data management” (CDM).
The General Data Protection Regulation – or GDPR – is a European
Union (EU) law that protects the rights of individuals with respect to
their data. Adopted as an EU law in April 2016, organizations that hold
data about any resident of the EU must be compliant by May 2018.
With attention-grabbing fines of €20 million or 4% of global annual
turnover, GDPR commands attention at the highest levels. And despite
the “legalese” that compliance suggests brands utilize, the brands that
balance legal compliance with a human approach will turn GDPR to

The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.
This white paper will provide a road map to the most effective strategies and technologies to protect data and provide fast recovery should data be lost or corrupted due to accident or malicious action.
Journaling is a powerful feature, one that IBM has continued to develop and improve over the years. Yet, depending upon your business requirements, you probably still need more protection against downtime than journaling alone can provide. This white paper will cover what you need to know about journaling, what it can do and how it supports and cooperates with high availability software.
This white paper provides a road map to the most effective strategies and technologies to protect data in AIX environments and provide fast recovery should data be lost or corrupted due to accident or malicious action. The paper also outlines the benefits of continuous data protection (CDP) technologies for AIX.
Continuous member service is an important deliverable for credit unions, and. the continued growth in assets and members means that the impact of downtime is affecting a larger base and is therefore potentially much more costly. Learn how new data protection and recovery technologies are making a huge impact on downtime for credit unions that depend on AIX-hosted applications.
Disaster Recovery Plan Roadmap
Learn how automatic backup delivers guaranteed business data
protection and recovery—no matter the threat.
When ransomware hits, the average small business experiences two full days of downtime. One-third of businesses lose revenue and all experience brand and loyalty damage that’s harder to quantify. To stop the bleeding, most small businesses end up paying at least $2,500 to get their data back. But paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee anything. Plenty of businesses have fully complied with the ransom demands, only to have the ransomer increase the ransom request—or simply take off with the ransom and the data.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.
