One good way to relax during the holidays: Symantec NetBackup OST Enhancements for HP StoreOnce

By Anirudh S Srinivasan, Worldwide Product Manager, HP Storage


happy_holidays-300x200.pngAnother year comes to a close and the holiday season begins. It is time to go on vacations, sit back, relax and spend time with family and friends. But can you really be sure that your business-critical data is protected and safe? Will all your backups be completed on time? Can you recover your data in case of a disaster while you are on vacation? 


We at HP are in the business of ensuring you have complete peace of mind when it comes to protecting your data, which is why HP, a leader in Deduplication Backup Target Appliances, is partnering with Symantec, a leader in Enterprise Backup/Recovery software to modernize data protection through our HP AllianceOne Data Agile Partner Program.  We’ve had a very busy year on this front. Before we head into 2015, I want to focus on the significant progress we’ve made in tightening the integration of HP StoreOnce Backup and Symantec NetBackup via the HP StoreOnce Open Storage Technology (OST) plug-in. Happy Holidays to all from the BURA Sunday storage bloggers!

Demo of new HP 3PAR StoreServ Management Console

Yesterday Ivan Iannaccone had a really good post talking about our new 3PAR next-generation management platform, 3PAR StoreServ Management Console or SSMC. His post had a lot of detail and sceenshots that I think gave a great view into SSMC. But if a picture is worth a thousand words then a demo video must be worth a million. 


So today I have a demo video of SSMC.  In the video I show a lot of the things Ivan talked about in his post but for me, this demo of SSMC made if real and understandable. I'll embed the video here but I do suggest watching it on YouTube, change it to HD and watch it full screen. So check it out!
