IBM on Monday unveiled two cloud-based disaster recovery services for businesses: the IBM SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery and the IBM SmartCloud Archive.
The IBM SmartCloud Archive provides users a document and records management system that can archive, find and retrieve both structured and unstructured content. The virtualized server recovery service offers remote access so customers don’t have to travel to a recovery site.
"Customers realize that not all data is created equal. When clients archive what they think is critical data, recovering data from an archive they’ve shipped offsite is not real quick. For searching, analyzing and recovering archived data quickly, we think they’ll look at storing data in the cloud." said Steve Wojtowecz, IBM’s vice president of storage software development.
