StoreOnce Catalyst: fast backup and recovery with more flexibility and choice

Last weekend our BURA Sunday blog asked the question: Did you sleep well last night? Or were you lying awake wondering whether you would be able to recover your data in the case of a system failure? This Sunday, we are turning our attention once again to HP StoreOnce and a feature that will resolve your concerns with more flexibility and more choice. And we start by asking another big question:


Are you dealing with ever-increasing pressure to meet SLAs?

As data continues to grow at rapid rates, SLAs often remain constant or even reduced. Analysts typically predict around a 50% increase in data per annum which means your data centres need to start performing at higher rates to continuously deliver on performance needs. Traditionally, this is achieved by adding more appliances in the data centre to meet the increasing demands. But this approach can be incredibly costly and requires specialist knowledge to deal with the growing complexity. Furthermore, this comes with no guarantee that SLAs will be met.


How HP StoreOnce Catalyst fills this gap

HP StoreOnce Backup with HP StoreOnce Catalyst can meet your business needs today and continues to do so as your business evolves—as data in both your central data centres and remote offices increases in size and quantity.


By running multiple instances of StoreOnce Catalyst, you can achieve incredibly fast backup

performance—T-storeonce_family__226x160--C-tcm245-1527483--CT-tcm245-1237012-32.jpgup to 139TB per hour—while getting your systems back online. You can recover data at up to 75TB/hr, which will help meet even the most challenging Recovery Time Objective (RTO). In addition to superior performance, StoreOnce Catalyst is incredibly powerful. With single-pane-of-glass management through integration with HP Data Protector plus support from other backup applications, you can manage the data flow from all of your remote sites and data centres from a single console.


More flexibility, more choice with StoreOnce Catalyst

 While StoreOnce catalyst offers increased simplicity and increased performance, what really sets this solution apart is the sheer flexibility and choice it offers.  That includes a critical choice: where to deduplicate your data.


Deduplication where you want (and need) it

 StoreOnce Catalyst can be used within purpose-built appliances. The deduplication algorithm can be used in other locations, such as inside HP Data Protector or HP StoreOnce VSA, our virtual appliance that is fully compatible with the hardware appliances and with Data Protector.


 StoreOnce Catalyst can also be deployed on application and media servers providing backup over the WAN capabilities—without the need for any dedicated hardware. This kind of flexibility means that StoreOnce can be deployed anywhere and to any scale. And because deduplication uses less bandwidth with higher performance and efficiency, it’s also ideal for remote offices.


More choice means more benefits

 HP StoreOnce Catalyst brings you the power of choice in a single solution you can deploy across your organization in both data centres and remote offices. You get significantly simplified management, increased flexibility, reduced costs and reduced risk. You’ll find more information on our websites:
