If you have already been watching my blog this week you know that we had a fairly beefy announcement. In fact, I heard today that several analysts said that it was great to see HP storage having so much news to talk about but that its also too much news. Well, when your a storage business inside of a $100 Billion plus technology leader like HP, we don't have the option of doing a storage announcement every two weeks (sure wish we did!).
So I hope you consider my posts a (storage) community service - helping to get the word out on all of the stuff we've announced but was maybe too much to digest in one sitting.
Today, in that spirit, I have a two part power podcast with Jay Livens. I'm a pretty happy camper that Jay has come to HP. Not only does he know backup and data protection better than anyone I know but he's also a social media guy too.
Jay and I talked about what's new with HP StoreOnce deduplication software. I had a couple of posts recently on this topic because it was also being presented to a group of bloggers at the Gestalt IT Tech Field Day. If you didn't see those vlogs, I HIGHLY recommend you take a look at them - click here for part 1 and click here for part 2 - as Jay and I only talk about StoreOnce at a high level.
I've broken this up into two power podcast, mostly because of the YouTube limit and Jay had a lot to say and I didn't want to over edit him. In part 1, Jay talks about his background, what he's doing at HP, and gives an overview of StoreOnce. Here it is:
In part 2, Jay and I talk about what's new with StoreOnce and the StoreOnce D2D Backup System. We also yuck it up, just a wee bit (sorry Farley, I can't control my guests).
Here are a few resources for you to explore around StoreOnce deduplication:
