What our customers say about the business value of StoreOnce Backup solutions

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage @ashwinkshetty


IDCJPEG.jpgIn a recent HP Storage blog, Chris Johnson, Vice President HP Storage EMEA, wrote a great post highlighting key storage principles to remove the BURA bottlenecks in your organization. This BURA Sunday, I’m going to focus on StoreOnce Backup business value from our customers’ perspective that is part of the recent IDC study Chris referenced in his post. The fact that customers shared their experiences after deploying our StoreOnce solutions gives much credence to what we have been saying about our StoreOnce technology.


Do you need a better solution to work with your Tivoli Storage Manager environment?

By Cyrus Cama, Technical Marketing Engineer, HP BURA


Whatever Backup ISV you use in your backup enterprise—whether it is TSM, Data Protector, CommVault or NetBackup—you know that you need to backup your data. BUT this BURA Sunday ask yourself: How confident are you that will be able to recover your data, and meet your SLAs around your RTOs and RPOs? As you’ve read in past blogs, HP Labs created HP StoreOnce from the ground up, with the intent to rethink dedupe with a primary focus on recovery.


Backup is never thought of as a sexy topic to talk about and is more or less looked upon as an insurance policy. But the whole reason we backup data is to be able to recover it, not just for daily operational restores but, most importantly, for disaster recovery.

Secure your data with HP StoreOnce

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage


lock.jpegData is a double-edged sword. It can create a lot of business value—but it also represents significant liability. As we speak, your organization is gathering data faster than ever from many different sources. Keeping pace with this unprecedented data growth poses a huge challenge. The bigger challenge lies in securing the data so that it can be effectively utilized without fear of unauthorized access or data loss.  Protecting your backup data is just as important as protecting your primary data. The big question this BURA Sunday: How can HP StoreOnce help protect your business?

HP Storage and Veeam integration demo

It's BURA Sunday and normally I have my team of experts doing these posts on Sunday but this week, they needed a break. The timing was perfect because I just finished editing a video demo that I did when I was at VeeamOn a few weeks ago. 


The demo shows the integration between HP Storage - StoreVirtual, 3PAR StoreServ, StoreOnce, and StoreEver - to use snapshots for high availability, backup and archive.  Here's a summary of that:

  • Instant recovery from StoreVirtual and 3PAR of virtual machines, files and more
  • Backup to disk and offsite replication (for disaster recovery) to StoreOnce
  • Archive backup to StoreEver tape for longer term retention.

John DeFrees from my Technical Marketing team walks me through the demo and explains the integration points.

What if you could release 4TB of storage in every 10TB with no business impact?

By Andrew Dickerson, Senior Marketing Manager, BURA Solutions, HP Storage


What a waste of space!

If you’re responsible for data storage, you already know that storing and managing more than 30% annual data growth is eating up your budget faster than just about anything else in IT. In fact, industry analysts estimate that anything between 25% and 40% of the total IT budget will be spent on storage in 2014. Yesterday’s disparate point solution approach to storage is a costly way to meet today’s data growth challenges. So if storage budgets are to be controlled, transformation of the storage infrastructure needs to be high on the agenda. Here’s how to start your transformation with converged storage and data protection.
