Data protection: what can we learn from “Sharks” on efficiency and agility?

By Srikanth Venkataseshu, Worldwide Solutions Marketing Manager, Backup Recovery and Archive Solutions, HP Storage

 

Last December, HP announced HP ConvergedSystemshark.jpg – a purpose-built system with integrated servers, network and storage wrapped with a choice of hypervisors and automation tools to accelerate time-to-deployment of virtualized applications. Naturally, HP ConvergedSystem was code named “Sharks” – symbolizing agility, efficiency and speed.

 

Advancements in hypervisors and the arrival of ConvergedSystem have made it extremely easy to rapidly deploy virtualized applications. While organizations have embraced virtualized workloads, estimates indicate that only 50% of enterprises have their data protection strategy aligned with virtualization objectives. To address this gap, we created HP Data Protection Solutions for HP ConvergedSystem – a unified technology stack based on HP StoreOnce Backup (disk based deduplication and backup) and HP Data Protector backup software. Let’s talk more about this data protection aspect.

HP Data Protector 8 at HP Discover

The other day I had a "snippet" from our HP Discover Blogger coffee talk with David Scott and Siamak Nazari.  I'll have a few more podcasts from the coffee talk and their will be more details they gave on HP 3PAR - some really interesting stuff that I'm excited to share.   I also had Stephen Spellicy, Director of Product Management for HP Autonomy Enterprise Backup Solutions with us.  At HP Discover, we announced HP Data Protector 8 and Stephen answered a few questions that the bloggers had. 

 

What's new with HP Data Protector 8?

It's a bit of a catch-22 that HP is such a big company. We included the new Data Protector 8 news in our press conference but there was so much other news that I was pretty sure most people didn't really get what we announced.  So before I share with you the audio from the coffee talk where Stephen answered questions from the bloggers, here's the highlights of what's new:
