HP StoreOnce aims to take the pain out of managing backup silos

Latest enhancements add aggregation of backup nodes into a shared resource pool, even including hybrid cloud (NYSE:HPQ)

With the HP Discover event scheduled to kick off tomorrow in Las Vegas, HP is getting an early start by announcing enhancements to its backup, recovery and archive (BURA) product family. The latest additions to the HP StoreOnce Backup solutions reduce the time required by administrators to manage the backup process by up to 75 percent by eliminating physical mapping of backup jobs to individual backup appliances. As an extension to the HP StoreOnce Backup portfolio, HP is calling this new solution the HP StoreOnce Federated Catalyst.

At the heart of this new feature set is the ability to aggregate multiple backup stores to a single pool of total backup capacity that can expand across multiple nodes. Depending on a customer's particular workload, this can scale up to more than 17PB assuming a 10:1 deduplication ratio. Also, via HP unique innovations such as adaptive bidding and adaptive routing, workloads are analyzed so that data is sent to the most optimal physical location. This includes more than just standard appliances, but also the ability to aggregate across hybrid cloud environments.

 

In addition, further enhancements to the HP StoreOnce Backup family include:

  • Support for non-deduplicating data types alongside deduplicated backup stores as well as increase scale for NAS-based backup.
  • Deeper integration with HP Data Protector as well as third-party backup software.
  • HP StoreOnce Integrity Plus, a set of capabilities that verifies data can be restored as written without corruption.
  • HP StoreOnce Security Pack, protects against unauthorized access to information via encryption of data in flight and at rest, while also ensuring data is securely erased when deleted.

 

All of these enhancements aim to build out the HP Converged Data Protection portfolio and help customers manage what is often a very siloed approach to data management and backup. According to Scott Kroel, vice president and CIO at Johnson Memorial Hospital,

 

"We had a siloed IT environment that required our staff to spend significant time managing multiple backup and recovery processes, resulting in inefficient healthcare services," said Scott Krodel, vice president and chief information officer, Johnson Memorial Hospital. "With HP StoreOnce we are able to simplify data protection dramatically and accelerate data recovery to increase business efficiency and deliver better care and services to our patients."

 

HP StoreOnce Federated Catalyst starts at $37,500 per couplet for the StoreOnce 6500. Both are available in July.
