HP StoreOnce 6500 Named Backup Hardware Product of the Year by TechTarget

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage @ashwinkshetty


How StoreOnce claims a hat-trick

When TechTarget named HP StoreOnce 6500 the Product of the Year in the Backup Hardware category, the first thing that came to my mind was that StoreOnce claims a hat-trick. So with the ICC Cricket World Cup beginning this week, I hope I’m excused in borrowing a metaphor from the game I closely follow – all by way of leading up to my discussion on our three-part hat-trick when it comes to leadership recognition for HP StoreOnce.


In August 2014, HP StoreOnce was named a leader by Gartner in its first Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Target Appliances. In November 2014, DCIG rated StoreOnce 6500 as the Best-in-Class in its Deduplicating Backup Appliance Buyers Guide. And to complete the three-part hat-trick, StoreOnce 6500 now has been named the gold winner in the Backup Hardware Product Category by TechTarget. These are all outstanding testaments to the growing recognition that HP StoreOnce Backup is one of the best solutions to choose for protecting your data – and for good reasons, as I discuss in my blog today.



10 reasons HP RDX is perfect for data backup in imperfect environments

By Paula Dallabetta, HP RDX product manager



In today’s world, information and data is gathered anywhere and everywhere, often in environments that are not ideally suited to the entry-level backup devices that dominate the industry today. Drops and accidents happen. Critical business data can be lost.


The big question is: how can you protect critical business data in imperfect environments? Here are 10 reasons HP RDX has the data backup answers you’ve been looking for.

Breaking through backup complexity

One of the most innovative solutions that addresses a relevant customer pain point is HP StoreOnce backup. Sometimes backup and data protection just doesn't get the attention it should even though it usually is one of the top IT challenges that customers face.


Breaking through backup complexity

I have a new ChalkTalk that IMHO is one of my best that talks about the complexity of backup and data protection. This is pretty short so well worth two-and-a-half minutes. There's a lot of detail behind the points that I make in the ChalkTalk. For the last several months, we've been able to get some of our StoreOnce experts blogging on ATSB and I'd recommend you look back on the BURA Sunday posts they've been doing. They have been going into useful details that help you better understand how you can reduce complexity with backup. Check out the ChalkTalk!


Are your application owners satisfied with data protection? Think again!

By Srikanth Venkataseshu, Senior Marketing Manager, Backup, Recovery and Archive Solutions, HP Storage


The world has changed! The exponential growth of data and the transformation of the data center toward a fluid, virtualized infrastructure has dramatically impacted the function of IT. At the same time, we all expect instant, uninterrupted access to data and applications. Can you imagine how lost we would be if our Twitter went down for a few hours? The reality is, most all rganizations typically have resilient high availability architecture for business and mission-critical applications.But that doesn’t mean data backup is unnecessary.
