IBM improves disaster recovery with ProtecTier update

Promises smoother business continuity.

IBM has added electronic data transfer capabilities to its deduplication portfolio, allowing organisations to transmit deduplicated data to remote sites without having to physically transport tapes.

The company said that its ProtecTier Deduplication line can now offer business continuity improvements, and allow companies to recover data faster in the event of a disaster.

The new ProtecTier replication technology should also mean that businesses can reduce their expenditure on network bandwidth and storage to keep data online.

IBM explained that the system transports only a small amount of data across a network at a given time, allowing a large amount of data to be transmitted with minimal bandwidth.

The firm also claimed that the cost reduction enabled by this approach will make electronic replication economically viable for all of an organisation's applications.

"Now, with ProtecTier native replication, users can protect deduplicated data at remote locations with greatly reduced bandwidth costs, helping to improve disaster recovery operations," said IBM System Storage vice president Cindy Grossman.
