IBM offers data protection solutions suitable for traditional client‑server infrastructures. IBM’s newest offering, Spectrum Protect Plus, may provide some benefits over Spectrum Protect, such as simplified deployment and a VM‑centric approach. But does it offer all the capabilities that you need to protect your modern environment?

Here are 4 reasons to choose Veeam® over IBM Spectrum Protect Plus


Veeam benefits

Spectrum Protect Plus limitations

Powerful functionality
Complete, powerful solution
Consolidate backup, recovery, DR orchestration, Copy Data Management, cloud mobility and more in a single platform.
Point product
The primary use case for Spectrum Protect Plus is VM backup, therefore requiring other tools for DR, physical, NAS protection and more
True data reuse
Gain a robust data reusability solution at no additional cost to leverage data and accelerate innovation.
Manual and limited
Spectrum Protect Plus’ data reuse capabilities are limited to manual VM recovery, restricting your ability to test, verify and develop.
Unlimited software‑defined scale
Scale with confidence. Veeam is designed to grow with your business while retaining the management simplicity our customers expect.
Sacrifices for simplicity
By designing Spectrum Protect Plus as a one‑size‑fits‑all product, IBM foregoes scalability for easy deployment. Which matters most to you?
Investment safety
Safe, trusted and reliable
Sleep safe knowing that Veeam’s 100% internally developed software is trusted by over 400,000 highly satisfied customers.
The IBM name carries a history of safety, but Spectrum Protect Plus is unproven acquired code, requiring you to gamble with your data.
