The software employs continuous data protection (CDP), which automates file backups each time a change is made and represents a lower-cost alternatives for SMBs dealing with mounting storage and compliance concerns.

"These new solutions complement our existing data protection software portfolio by offering backup and recovery features tailored for remote office and midmarket customers," said IBM's director of storage software in a statement.
