More on the HP StoreOnce Catalyst and Veeam Integration

Last year at VeeamOn, I jokingly asked a Veeam exec when would we have StoreOnce Catalyst support with Veeam. I got a sly smile in response and I knew what that meant!


The wait is over! 

I won't spend a lot of time talking about what this means for our customers - Srik covered that very well in a post he did last week titled Veeam integrates with HP StoreOnce Catalyst to deliver enhanced data protect. I want to share a short video with my friend at Veeam Rick Vanover - the Rickatron! I took a break from being a one man band with my videos and drafted Radhika Mitra to interview Rick. It's a short video but they do a great job describing the benefits of this integration.

I get this question from time to time: “Do you have anything that can help me store my files and content that I can’t afford to keep on my disk array?” My answer is, “Yes we do!” We have a solution we call tNAS, short for Tape-as-NAS. After explaining tNAS and its benefits, I then get asked, “How do I size it to meet my archive demands?” That’s when the workflow discussion comes into play. Here I’ll explain how the workflow impacts the sizing of the disk cache, the number of tape drives and the tape library capacity for storing archive data in a tNAS solution.

How to manage video surveillance retention – the biggest Big Data

This BURA Sunday, we welcome guest blogger Jay Jason Bartlett, VP WW Sales and Marketing, SoleraTec, now a member of the HP Data Agile Partner Program.


Camera.jpgFrom the Boston Marathon bombings to daily law enforcement video security in the U.S., our society has become conditioned to video surveillance, almost to the point of expecting video to be available. Whether it is traffic cameras, shopping mall cameras, warehouse cameras, or now the very popular police body-worn cameras, video surveillance – and the storage of all that video – is seeing significant double-digit growth.


But what is the best way to reliably and cost efficiently retain these ever-growing amounts of video surveillance feeds? A new multi-tiered storage solution from HP and SoleraTec enables a complete scalable video surveillance infrastructure capable of providing years of video surveillance storage at costs no longer out of reach. Let’s take a closer look.
