In today's post, I want to address the flap that EMC created last week questioning whether or not the HP StoreOnce B6200 is a single system. Here's a podcast of my thoughts here (which you can also read by clicking through to the blog post).
Can it be? Already a week since Discover? To wrap things up, here are some highlights from storage-focused sessions I attended on Discover Day 4, including technical session with customer use cases on the HP 3PAR Get Thin and Get Virutal Guarantee, a Master the Cloud session led by Brad Parks and a session on HP Storage and big data with an SMB focus.
Last week at HP Discover we announced enhancements to our HP StoreOnce family. We first announced StoreOnce deduplication - based on technology from HP Labs - at our HP event in Las Vegas two years ago. We've been on a continuing push to deliver on our strategy of a single deduplication technology across the enterprise.
I remembered that in June 2010 I did a podcast with Mark Lillibridge - Mark is a Principal Research Scientist with HP Labs and he talked about some of the software innovations from HP Labs that are in StoreOnce. The podcast was discarded when we moved to a new hosting platform but luckily, I'm a pack rat and was able to find this and pull it out of the archives. Here's the discussion I had with Mark in my ATSB #23 podcast (from June 2010).
I have another podcast to share today - in it I talk to Steve Johnson about some of the challenges that existed with deduplication and how HP StoreOnce is addressing them.
