The origins of IBM lie in both the US and Germany. In 1896, the German-American Hermann Hollerith, the inventor of the punch card machine, founded the Tabulating Machine Company. Resulting from mergers with other companies, the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company (CTR), headquartered in New York State, was formed on June 16th, 1911. This date is internationally regarded as the date of IBM's incorporation. Thomas J. Watson Sr. took over management of this company in 1914 and in 1924 he changed the name from C-T-R to International Business Machines Corporation (IBM). The company came to Germany in 1910. Founded as DEHOMAG (Deutsche Hollerith-Maschinen Gesellschaft mbH), it became Internationale Büro-Maschinen Gesellschaft (IBM) in 1949 and in 1971 it was renamed IBM Deutschland GmbH. With the realignment according to core competencies, IBM in Germany is positioning itself still more clearly as a globally integrated company with a long-term and sustainable growth model.

Data Protector
Data Protector allows you to do fast, hot online backups and works especially well in networks with low bandwith. After a full backup has been taken, an incremental backup handles the changes that has occured to the database. This is a very efficient technical solution that saves your company time, money and energy, as the backup window is minimal. Data Protector takes backup on block level and is very flexible and easy to work with.
This product works on FirebirdSQL, Ingres, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Progress Open Edge 4GL, Sybase ASE, Sybase IQ and MariaDB.
Snap Protector
Snap Protector uses a similar but more advanced technique. The first backup is also on the entire database, and after that it only takes a backup on the changes in the database. The difference is that this backup is even more précis and faster. Every change in the database is directly backed up to Spectrum Protect, which gives your company a nearly continues backup. The backup is therefore the safest alternative for your company, and is even more cost effective and time efficient.
This product is preferred to bigger databases with a Linux platform and works on MongoDB, MariaDB, MySQL and PostgreSQL.
