StoreOnce_308x220_tcm245_1534335_tcm245_1515474_tcm245-1534335.jpgLast week at HP Discover we had made some very significant announcements for HP storage and for the HP StoreOnce platform, including Federated Catalyst for HP StoreOnce 6500, expanded ISV ecosystem and HP Integrity Plus Assurance for end-to-end security.  So, now the questions arise: Why do our customers deploy HP StoreOnce for data protection requirements?
