Adaptive Backup and Recovery from HP

CJZ Headshot fixed 150 x 150.jpgBy Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy  vExpert 4 years.jpg


Last week many of my colleagues around the world came together in Phoenix for what was a really incredible week of celebrating our recent accomplishments and planning on how we continue the success.  One of the people there was Stephen Spellicy, my fellow vExpert and the director of product management in HP Autonomy for data protection solutions.  There's a lot of collaboration between our teams as we have a strong focus on Backup, Recovery, and Archive (BURA) solutions.


I took the opportunity to talk to Stephan about the solutions he manages and to learn about something I've been hearing a lot lately, Adaptive Backup and Recovery.  In the podcast Stephan talks about the three primary products in his portfolio, discusses how HP StoreOnce and Data Protector are working closely together and then gives an overview of Adaptive Backup and Recovery - a topic that I'll talk to him again as we get closer to HP Discover in June.  Here's the podcast with Stephen.

North American events to attend

Great timing on the podcast beacuse I just learned about five events happening in a few North American cities where you can hear from industry experts on this very topic - either George Crump from Storage Switzerland or Curtis Preston from Truth in IT - and learn more about some of the key issues and solutions around Backup and Recovery.  Each event has something fun to go along with the seminar like watching a special showing of the new X-Men movie, a MLB Baseball game, a golf outing or other fun activities.


Here's what the event email says:

HP's Adaptive Backup and Recovery introduces an innovative and unique approach that delivers the industry’s first self-aware, self-managed, and self-healing data protection solution. It utilizes advanced integration with applications and infrastructure, and operational analytics, to optimize backup, improve business continuity and resiliency, and boost uptime within your IT environment.


Find out how recent technology advances are allowing IT executives like yourself to:

  • Reduce your data footprint while improving backup and recovery performance
  • Automatically adapt to application/infrastructure changes
  • Improve business continuity by eliminating risks of data loss and downtime

If one of these cities is close to you, please consider joining us!
