IBM has extending its portfolio of data resilience solutions with the introduction of the IBM Diamondback Tape Library, a high-density archival storage solution that is physically air-gapped to help protect against ransomware and other cyber threats in hybrid cloud environments.
IBM Diamondback is for organizations needing to securely store hundreds of petabytes of data, both traditional and ‘new wave’ hyperscalers – global enterprises aggregating massive customer data sets. It provides long-term storage and is designed to provide significantly smaller carbon footprint compared to flash or disk storage, and with a lower total cost of ownership.
"With data breaches and ransomware attacks now a constant threat, we are seeing hyperscale enterprises increasingly turning to the data resilience provided by IBM Tape solutions," said Scott Baker, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of IBM Storage. "The IBM Diamondback Tape Library provides critical protection against a variety of threats, helping minimize data center floor space requirements and organizations' carbon footprint. It's part of the end-to-end data protection and security solution that IBM can deliver."
