Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"IBM Spectrum Protect is a scalable solution.""Spectrum Protect's best feature is that I can use it practically anywhere, on any platform, and for any servers or clients.""I find the whole product useful. The backup archive client, snapshot, spectrum for virtual environments are beneficial features.""The MN backup for a cluster is most valuable because it has made backing up the GSF as a zero-file system easier. I like its stability a lot. Over the years, I very rarely had a problem with it.""It's a very stable product, and we've never had any downtime with it.""You can scale the product.""IBM Spectrum Protect offers stable software and products.""Nothing beats this solution for file backup."

"We use this solution as an integrated backup solution and it is integrated from the backup provider to the Nutanix solution.""Nutanix has its own backup system known as HYCU, as well as its own virtual server.""We find the ease of use valuable."

More Nutanix Mine Integrated Backup Pros →

"We did not see any drawbacks to IBM Spectrum Protect before assisting a customer using Windows that wanted to migrate to using UNIX. IBM Spectrum Protect does not offer an option to migrate from other operating systems.""I find the solution somewhat difficult to use with virtual environments or VMware.""The software is very complicated. You have to do a lot of configurations to build a server, and you would need to backup and restore.""Software-wise, IBM Spectrum Protect didn't handle virtual machines that well. The license cost is mainly the area for improvement in IBM Spectrum Protect.""The solution could be more user-friendly and provide better monitoring. The monitoring should be improved first since it is a higher priority.""We need better protection from ransomware or the ability to identify ways we can protect ourselves from ransomware. Having backups is one thing, but specifically, we need methods to recover if we have a ransomware attack.""IBM's support hasn't been so good in the last few years.""The software is complex; setup is complex."

"This solution could be improved with regards to the hosts that integrate with the platform itself. Each of the hosts integrated with the storage and networking only provide one instance of a backup.""I would like to see the multi-cloud improve.""It could be cheaper."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I don't have an idea about the pricing. They send that over to someone else, but I know that one of the issues they had was the licensing costs. I don't think they were happy with how they were charged."
  • "Its licensing is complex, and its price is not really reasonable. It is on the expensive side. IBM, in general, is slightly expensive, but with IBM Spectrum for the virtual environment, they are looking into the aspect of helping customers with the cost and providing a cost-effective solution."
  • "When compared to the cost of other enterprise products, it seems to be in the same range. However, compared to the cost of non-enterprise products, it is really high."
  • "We are paying for support and maintenance on a monthly basis."
  • "That's a hard estimate. It depends on the licensing, the hardware, and other stuff, but it is fairly expensive. It is generally more expensive than other solutions."
  • "The pricing model of this solution is another difficult area, it's very sophisticated in the way they charge. It's based on PBU, which is a type of processor, how, many processors, and you need to put everything into an equation. However, they have different ways of charging or licensing. One way is a back-end volume or front-end volume, which is quite complicated."
  • "Its licensing is complicated. It goes by CPUs, and it is pretty expensive as well."
  • "It's very complicated. Licensing is a pain."
