Data protection: what works with what and how do I connect it all together?

By Mark Fleischhauer, HP StoreEver Tape Storage Solutions Engineering Manager


ElectronicsKit.jpgBuilding and configuring a data protection solution can be a daunting task. You need to figure out what works with what, how to configure it and how to architect a solution that solves the problem you have in your business. HP has everything you need to design, configure and implement your solution.


Let’s take a look at how we can help you identify all the piece parts, connect them all together, and solve your data protection challenges. (And you’ll understand how it just might remind me of my first electronics kit.)





Learn more about data protection with our StoreOnce ChalkTalks and videos

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage   @ashwinkshetty


Last week in our BURA Sunday anniversary blog, I listed some of my favorite StoreOnce posts from the past year. This week, I’m sharing some of my favorite ChalkTalks and product overview videos plus a ShortTake that will make it simpler for you to understand and appreciate how StoreOnce can make a difference in the way you protect your data


One of my preferred approaches for learning about new concepts or technology features is by watching an animated ChalkTalk or an audio-video presentation. I personally love these HP StoreOnce ChalkTalk videos from Calvin Zito. They are short yet packed with a wealth of useful information that makes it easy to understand specific features or complex technology concepts. Here's one to get you strated. (And more in the blog.)


Eliminating data protection complexity with HP StoreOnce. (See what DCIG has to say about it.)

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage  @ashwinkshetty 

Building on our long history of helping you to protect your data, we have identified key data protection challenges that affect nearly all organizations in one way or another. HP StoreOnce Backup solutions are designed specifically to address these data protection challenges. So how did HP identify these challenges? Every vendor promotes their backup systems as the “fastest” and the “best” data protection solution available. But do they really understand the challenges most customers face?

To address these questions, I’ll highlight a recent blog published by DCIG: HP StoreOnce Deduplicating Backup Appliances Put Organizations on Path to Ending Big Data Backup Headaches

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage   @ashwinkshetty


Back in February, I wrote a blog about the latest enhancement to our StoreOnce VSA platform. Since then, I’ve been receiving many questions on Twitter about the free 1TB StoreOnce VSA.

The 1TB StoreOnce VSA is downloadable from the HP Software Depot. You can access this page directly from this web page: To continue requires that you have an HP Passport account (which is easily created if you do not already have one). After this, you need to enter your HP Passport credentials and some user information. This takes you to the download page where the StoreOnce VSA software can be downloaded. From the same download page there is also a link to download the License Key Entitlement Certificate.

Deeper technical dive on HP StoreOnce SQL Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server

This BURA Sunday, I’m going a bit deeper into direct SQL Server database backup enabled by the StoreOnce Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server. I’ll summarize an excellent new technical white paper on the plug-in. Before jumping into that, let’s recap on how the direct backup plug-in fits in the overall process of efficiently making sure databases are available and protected.
