In the last few BURA Sunday posts, two of my colleagues, Ian and Srikanth, have covered how HP StoreOnce can help you protect you SQL and SAP HANA database backup. This week, I’m extending this conversation to give a high-level overview on why StoreOnce solutions can give your Oracle DBAs exactly what they need for database backups.

Small video cameras are everywhere. So are big storage cost and data protection challenges.

By Andrew Dodd, WW Marketing Communications Manager, HP Storage Media

 

Body Camera.jpgAs video cameras become smaller and more robust, they are starting to show up almost everywhere in daily life: for leisure, business and emergency service use. The footage captured by “dash cams” during police activities has proven to be a valuable asset, so much so that many police officers are starting to wear body cams for the same reasons. All these cameras create a substantial amount of data that forces the need to manage, maintain and protect as this data may be recalled as evidence. It needs to be “tamper proof” to protect the integrity of the content. With the new tape-as-NAS solution combined with LTO WORM, we now have a solution that can provide economical storage and integrity protection.

Get ready.

Soccer_Image.jpegIn Italy, the most popular sport is soccer. Everyone follows the championships. Even if you’re not that interested, it’s impossible to avoid the activity that surrounds them—and this includes the Monday coach. This is when you go to any office water cooler or other gathering spot on a Monday during soccer season and everybody there seems to think that they can do a better job than any of the real coaches. (If you are a U.S. football fan, you might recognize this common phenomenon as the Monday morning quarterback!)

 

Data availability reminds me of these endless discussions. Everyone thinks they have the perfect plan to solve any availability problem, and they refuse to even look at other ideas. When it comes to protecting data, however, the problem is that everyone is correct AND wrong at the same time! Let me explain...
