Storage Systems

To truly optimize the IT infrastructure requires a complete and resilient approach to hybrid cloud. One that lowers costs without cloud lock-in integrates and plays well with their existing solutions while simplifying containerization, management, software-defined storage, and modern data protection.

Storage Systems

CIOs and I&Os (Infrastructure & Operations leaders) face daily a complex mix of events that can affect business outcomes like managing the growing data space of each line of business applications, maintaining core IT applications, uncovering competitive advantages.

All these demands put pressure on the storage infrastructure’s performance, capacity, security, resiliency, and agility while having the best financial outcomes from the total cost of acquisition and ownership (TCA, TCO) and ROI (Return on Investment).

Organizations are looking to transform and enhance their business with a comprehensive storage solution that integrates and refreshes their existing IT infrastructure while reducing costs. To truly optimize the IT infrastructure requires a complete and resilient approach to hybrid cloud.

GBM offers a wide range of IBM storage, and Data Protection Solutions, together with the know-how to integrate and support the different businesses industry’s needs.

IBM Storage & Data Protection

IBM Storage can easily simplify your data infrastructure using an underlying software foundation to strengthen and streamline the storage in your hybrid cloud environment, using a simplified approach to containerization, management and data protection.

GBM has all the professional experience to deliver end-to-end IBM Storage and data protection solution.

A new line of defense against cyber attacks

The Safeguarded Copy solution is the latest protection mechanism for data on IBM Storage products. It helps secure data to prevent it from being compromised, either accidentally or deliberately and allows for recovery from protected backups in the event of a cyberattack. It provides secure, point-in-time copies or snapshots of active production data that cannot be altered or deleted (immutable copies). Later on, it can be used to identify, repair, or replace data that has been compromised by either a cyber or internal attack or corrupted by system failures or human error. The safeguarded backups or copies of data are protected with additional security provided through unique user roles with dual management control (separation of duties).
