HP StoreOnce Backup update from GPC

Earlier this week, I told you that there would be several blog posts with our news from the Global Partner Conference and I have more today, this time an update to HP StoreOnce Backup.  The update to StoreOnce is straight-forward and I didn't do a ChalkTalk focused on it so I'll tell you about what's new and then share with you a ShortTake, and a bonus ChalkTalk.  


What's new with StoreOnce?

Customers requiring mid-range deduplication appliance scaling greater than 36TB were required to purchase the HP StoreOnce 4700 Backup System - until now.  By adding a new drive enclosure option featuring a 4TB drive shelf to the HP StoreOnce 4500 Backup System, customers can now make a lower initial investment and still gain the capacity headroom to expand the 4500  more than 3x previous limits. Drive enclosures will now support any mix of 2TB or 4TB drives up to 12 drives per shelf and a maximum of three shelves, with total support for 124 TB of usable capacity.


Who will benefit from this update?

  • Midsized customers with large data growth
  • Customers with longer retention policies or backup data with lower deduplication ratios
  • Midsized datacenters looking to implement disaster recovery targets where capacity is more important than performance. 

Bottom line, we are making it more affordable for customers to protect their data for longer periods with the StoreOnce 4500.


ShortTake #4: HP StoreOnce Overview

The StoreOnce ShortTake I have is from my colleague Patrick Osborne.  Patrick is the Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing and he's packed a ton of great information into this ShortTake.  If you don't know the portfolio, he'll show you where the 4500 fits. I'm trying to keep the ShortTakes under 5 minutes but Patrick went a bit over and with such great information, I didn't have the heart to cut things out so check it out!



If you rather download this as a podcast, right click here and save the MP3 file. You can also subscribe to my podcast on iTunes - go to the iTunes store and search for "Around the Storage Block" or you can open this link and click on the "View in iTunes" button under my picture.



I have one more left, where I'll talk about Simply StoreIT.  One of the new Simply StoreIT ChalkTalks I have is focused on Backup and Data Protection.  Since it ties so nicely with StoreOnce, I'll give you a sneak peak of it today.
