New ShortTakes on StoreOnce and HP 3PAR AFA

P1040991.jpgI am back from what has been the longest vacation I've ever taken - almost 4 weeks.  While I did have three work events I attended in Europe, my ttime in Europe were pretty much all vacation.  I did post a blog from Germany about half way into the trip so check that out. 

 

I took over 1300 pictures.  And no, I wouldn't make you look at all of them (though many are amazing) but Google Plus has this very cool picture diary it created from the pictures I took with my SmartPhone.  I thought this was cool because all I had to do was add a few captions and remove a few pictures I thought weren't the best so if you want to see what I did, click on the link. But now, it's time for me to get to work.

 

Three new ShortTakes to share

If you remember, the week before I left for Europe was HP Discover.  That was also a rather intense week and I wasn't able to share with you a few ShortTakes from our product experts.  I have three to share - two focused on HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All Flash Array and the other on HP StoreOnce.  I'll include them here in "rapid fire" fashion with no other commentary as the ShortTakes speak for themselves.  As with other ShortTakes, I have the audio you can listen to and slides you can click through. So here they are.  (See the full blog post for the ShortTakes)

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.

9 top reasons to choose HP StoreOnce Backup Solutions

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage

 

 

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? What differentiates our solution as compared to the rest of the backup appliance vendors? I think it is time we take a closer look at and make sure it’s not just a bunch of smoke and mirrors and delve into what you are really looking for when it comes to data protection.
