Simply StoreIT solutions for Data Protection and Virtualization

I started this week with an overview of the announcements we made at our HP Global Partner Conference. In that post, I pointed you to the updated Simply StoreIT Overview ChalkTalk.  I'll end GPC week with one final update of interest to small and midsized businesses.  

 

HP Simply StoreIT is for SMBs with a focus on solutions for virtualization, backup and data protection, file sharing, Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server.  The goal is to help you, via channel partners, quickly find the storage solution that best fits your business. 

 

The foundation of Simply StoreIT is to identify where you are in your IT journey: starting out, building momentum, or expanding your business.  And armed with that information, its easy to determine what  product can best address your needs.  I'd suggest if you didn't see the overview ChalkTalk I mentioned at the start, you take a look at that.  Also, I'll point you to the Simply StoreIT program overview (PDF) if you want to learn more. 

 

You will be interested in the free "Get Protected Guarantee" Backup Assessment.  It does require registration but I think it's worth it.   When you take the assessment it includes:

  • Backup window details
  • Successful vs. failed backup details
  • Retention times
  • Daily data backed up

Two webcasts with Enterprise Strategy Group

Well, shame on me for waiting until now but I want to alert you to a webcast tomorrow (January 29) at 1 PM ET.  I'm looking forward to this even though I had nothing to do with it.   UPDATED: The webinar happened today and I'm told there will be a replay link by tomorrow so please check it out.

 

Mark Peters is a Sr Analyst with ESG and my former boss (now my boss' boss) Craig Nunes are going to talk about the future of storage.  I've had the pleasure of spending some time with Mark and enjoyed a wonderful curry dinner in downtown London with him a couple of years ago that was the best Indian food I've ever had. 

 

Here's a link to register for the webcast tomorrow. 

HP TechCast.jpgNext week, I'll host another HP TechCast on February 7th at 1 PM ET with my co-host @Geekazine Jeffery Powers.  Our topic will be the changing nature of backup and archiving.   Out special guest will be ESG Sr. Analyst (and data protection expert) Jason Buffington.   For our webcast, I have a calendar item you can download.  Be sure to join us!
