One good way to relax during the holidays: Symantec NetBackup OST Enhancements for HP StoreOnce

By Anirudh S Srinivasan, Worldwide Product Manager, HP Storage


happy_holidays-300x200.pngAnother year comes to a close and the holiday season begins. It is time to go on vacations, sit back, relax and spend time with family and friends. But can you really be sure that your business-critical data is protected and safe? Will all your backups be completed on time? Can you recover your data in case of a disaster while you are on vacation? 


We at HP are in the business of ensuring you have complete peace of mind when it comes to protecting your data, which is why HP, a leader in Deduplication Backup Target Appliances, is partnering with Symantec, a leader in Enterprise Backup/Recovery software to modernize data protection through our HP AllianceOne Data Agile Partner Program.  We’ve had a very busy year on this front. Before we head into 2015, I want to focus on the significant progress we’ve made in tightening the integration of HP StoreOnce Backup and Symantec NetBackup via the HP StoreOnce Open Storage Technology (OST) plug-in. Happy Holidays to all from the BURA Sunday storage bloggers!

By Simon Watkins, WW Product Marketing Manager, Backup, Recovery & Archive (BURA), HP Storage


17x faster backup with application-managed flat backup for HP 3PAR StoreServ

At HP Discover this week, we announced a new data protection offering: HP StoreOnce Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software. RMC enables application-managed snapshots on 3PAR StoreServ systems together with automatic movement of changed data to a HP StoreOnce Backup target, delivering greater protection versus primary storage snapshots alone. With initial support for VMware vSphere®, StoreOnce RMC is both simple and low cost, allowing direct backup from primary storage to secondary storage for VM-level backups. Flat backup topology is enabled by StoreOnce RMC’s Express Protect feature and offers 17x faster data protection than traditional backup. Let’s find out more.


Storage News at HP Discover

HP Discover is underway and I've got a summary of the HP Storage news that we have.  It's pretty amazing to me to see how our teams continue to innovate and while I don't want to say this is the best announcement ever, the things we've done and are announcing today are very impressive. 


HP Converged Storage

I think setting some context is where I'll start.  About 3 years ago we set out our vision of Converged Storage. That vision is really starting to come together and is supported by the announcements we have today.  I have a ChalkTalk that gives an overview of our Converged Storage Vision and I recommend you start here or at least come back and watch this.  It's a compelling vision that is very different from what many traditional storage vendors are doing.
