STORServer’s Tivoli Storage Manager/IBM Spectrum Protect offering is not FedRAMP-certified.  Rather, the offering resides on IBM Cloud’s FedRAMP certified IaaS cloud offering (listed as SoftLayer Federal Cloud).  This FedRAMP certification does not extend to STORServer’s offering of Tivoli Storage Manager/IBM Spectrum Protect.

Award-winning data backup appliances support customers with FIPS 140-2 security requirements and can meet security controls for FedRAMP, allowing for simple and secure data backup in the cloud

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – May 23, 2017 — / – STORServer, a leading provider of proven enterprise data backup solutions, is now offering FIPS-compliant cloud backup for the government market. This cloud backup solution also meets security controls for FedRAMP. With IBM Spectrum Protect™, formerly known as Tivoli Storage Manager or TSM, government agencies can now simply and securely embrace the advantages of the cloud for their data backup needs.

With STORServer’s cloud backup, government agencies can eliminate their reliance on tape storage and transition to a more efficient and reliable backup solution. Eliminating tape also removes the manual intervention roadblocks and element of human error from the disaster recovery requirement of moving a copy of data offsite. Instead of waiting for tapes to be picked up and taken offsite, government agencies using cloud backup have their data automatically moved offsite when replication takes place. This means data will immediately be transferred from a user’s computing environment to a STORServer-supported, highly disaster-tolerant cloud environment.

STORServer’s cloud offering is ideal for the long-term data retention requirements of government agencies. Data from traffic cameras, park cameras, police body cameras and other sources that have longer or indefinite storage requirements drastically increase on-site data backup costs. With the cloud, government agencies can securely retain this data while eliminating the need for manual intervention.

The scalability offered by the cloud is a significant, paradigm-changing advantage for government agencies. Rather than purchasing a mandatory minimum unit of storage hardware that must be shipped and integrated, users with STORServer’s cloud backup solution can granularly and infinitely scale their storage to meet data growth and retention.

Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer explained, “By utilizing cloud backup instead of tape, data backup costs can be considered an operational expenditure as opposed to a capital expenditure, which is an advantageous move for many government agencies.”

With IBM’s two federally-certified SoftLayer cloud data centers in Dallas, Texas, and Ashburn, Virginia, STORServer’s government agency customers are assured that their data is being backed up at locations designed specifically to meet federal security and high availability requirements. STORServer’s cloud backup solution is powered by IBM Spectrum Protect, which in addition to supporting SoftLayer, also supports  Cloud Object Storage System™ (formerly known as Cleversafe®), Amazon AWS S3 and OpenStack Swift.
