Early today we announced enhancements to our HP StoreOnce family. I wanted to share with you a short video that shows the HP StoreOnce B6200 and a podcast that goes a big deeper on exactly what StoreOnce Catalyst is. Here's the overview video:
I also have an audio only version version of this video that you can download and listen to though if you're here on the blog, you should watch the video to see the B6200.
The podcast I have is with Steve Johnson - Steve has worked in HP Storage for a long time and has always been focused on backup and recovery. I frankly didn't really understand what StoreOnce Catalyst was and the conversation I had with Steve really helped crystallize it for me. So this is good stuff. Give it a listen:
You can download this podcast by doing a right-click and "Save as" here. You can 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 know the claims HP has made about StoreOnce Catalyst have created a stir - but trust me when I say that HP doesn't make claims that we can't backup. HP StoreOnce Catalyst is the real deal!
Here are a few press articles you can read:
- Via CRN, "New StoreOnce dedup technology: Restores as fast as it backs up data"
- Via ZDnet, "HP StoreOnce touted as first to reach 100TB/hour backup rate"
What do you think? Would love to hear your feedback and questions. Either leave them on the blog or send me a tweet.
