Pay As-You-Grow Data Protection

Data growth continues to be a major problem in the business world, and many small and medium businesses have just as hard a time responding to the challenge as large enterprises do. Although smaller organizations generally have less data to store, they also have fewer IT resources to work with. As a result, smaller companies are often the ones that are most harmed by rapid data growth. In order to get the data protection and recovery functionalities they need while staying within their budgets, small and medium businesses need a solution that takes a creative approach to data protection. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery gives small and medium businesses the opportunity to start out with only the individual solutions they need, and add new functionalities as they grow. In addition, TSM SUR only requires businesses to pay for the amount of data they store after compression and deduplication.
