Mapping the Cape 2 Cape Challenge

CarTeaserJ.jpgWhile visiting HP Discover in Barcelona last month, I was able to meet up with intrepid adventurer, Rainer Zietlow,
and the VW Touareg that was central to the latest “Extreme Testing” project for HP Storage Media.
In September 2014, Rainer and his team were attempting a new world record for long distance driving: from Nordkapp in Norway to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of Africa, in the shortest possible time. The route took them through 19 countries: Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Let’s travel along!

Best of BURA Sunday: HP named leader in 1st Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Appliances

Earlier this year, in response to rapid market growth, Gartner published its first ever Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Target Appliances to help storage professional’s short list vendors. We believe that this report is a testament to a growing recognition that backup and recovery is the next critical frontier in data center modernization.

 

In the report, Gartner positioned HP within the Leaders Quadrant with only one other vendor. I want to share with you our take on the reasons why.

State court IT department rules against disconnected data protection silos

By Andrew Dickerson, Senior Marketing Manager, HP Storage Backup, Recovery and Archive Solutions

 


ReportJ.jpgNo enterprise wants to pull resources away from its core business operations. But that’s exactly what you’re doing if you use separate backup applications in your data center and remote sites to protect Big Data and mission-critical applications. Disconnected backup silos add cost and complexity and raise the risk that data may go unprotected. To safeguard your data and your business, you need a simple, affordable and reliable end-to-end solution that lets you manage all your backup sites from a single pane of glass. 

 

Teams that deploy individual storage, application and virtualization solutions can create backup silos that you then have to manage separately. One of our customers, the IT department of a U.S. state court system, backs up data at distributed sites across the state. Read more about our customer’s story here – and take advantage of the opportunity to read this Taneja Group white paper. You’ll discover the business benefits of having one simplified, fully compatible and reliable backup and recovery solution for all your corporate data. (Registration required.)
