Better data protection for SMBs

  By Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy


On today's podcast, we talk about the HP Total Care announcement with HP StorageWorks Marketing Manager Chris McCall.  The announcement today has three StorageWorks components:


    • HP LeftHand P4000 SAN Solutions - new application integrated snapshots that integrates the P4000 replication software with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).  This integration ensures application quiescing when creating point-in-time copies, simplifying the process
    • HP StorageWorks D2D Backup System - new NAS target for backup allows customers to create and backup to a CIFS and/or NFS-based file share and its provided free of charge.  While many customers will find NAS-based backup a desirable feature, small and midsized customers will find this most useful. 
    • HP StorageWorks DAT 320 Tape Drives - this is the seventh generation of DAT with 2X the capacity, 75% higher performance and around 50% less power than the previous generation DAT.

So with that, here's the podcast:

Liked the Podcast. The intro/title music should have been a little quieter as I couldn't make out what was being said over it. Thanks...

Thanks David - I've had a few podcasts, especially in the first several that I did, where the music was too loud.  The only thing I can say is I do like that music!  I have been more on the lookout for the bumper music being too loud as of late.  Thanks again!
