Can you protect your data for free? Introducing the new FREE 1TB StoreOnce VSA

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. So to address some of your questions, let me summarize the whats and wherefores—as we have just recently enabled the link for users to download the free 1TB StoreOnce VSA. Here’s the most important question! Read on with my blog for more!

The 1TB StoreOnce VSA is downloadable from the HP Software Depot. You can access this page directly from this web page: www.hp.com/go/FreeBackup. 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.

Combining snapshots and backups for best practice data protection

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

 

When it comes to best practice data protection for your business-critical applications, no single snapshot or backup technology can provide the complete solution. Snapshots and backups have different yet complementary roles to play for availability, backup and disaster recovery.When you’re looking for a comprehensive, tiered and converged data protection architecture that balances availability and protection, it should not be a question of either-or but more a case of where and how to best use snapshots and backup.  

 

So what is the value of combining snapshots and backups for availability and backup in your organization?

Database backups provide special challenges. Ask any DBA – and they will likely tell you they want to perform daily full backups and sometimes more than one full backup every day. But what do you do when a full database backup takes over 12 hours to complete and the database keeps growing? Take for example, Microsoft SQL DBAs who rely on efficient, high-performing and reliable backup systems to protect data while keeping costs under control. StoreOnce Catalyst can help. HP StoreOnce Catalyst extends the data protection capabilities of HP StoreOnce appliances in SQL environments.

 

This BURA Sunday, I'm talking about the benefits of using HP StoreOnce appliances and HP Data Protector with integrated HP StoreOnce Catalyst to protect SQL databases.
