IBM plans to launch new cloud-based storage, back-up and data recovery services for small businesses as well as larger enterprises. SmartCloud Resiliency Services will include SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery and Archive, and will be provided through servers and software located in IBM data centers worldwide.

We found this news on Notebook Review in their article, “IBM’s Cloud To Offer Gold, Silver and Bronze Data Recovery to SMBs.” With real-time recovery, IBM will be able to deliver immediate data restoral if a customer’s own server crashes, regardless of the issue.

IBM’s new SmartCloud Archive offering will encompass services that include legal discovery; advanced search, indexing and retrieval; fast recovery of business-critical information; controls over storage management costs; and a document and records management system capable of handling both structured content like database records and unstructured content like e-mails.
