How are you tackling enterprise archival storage challenges?

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


ArchiveImage1.jpgThe challenges of managing multi-petabyte data archives just keep on coming. Unpredictable data growth. 24x7 availability demand. Infrastructure sprawl. Increasing data breach threats. And the need to contain costs. All combine to make delivering a robust enterprise data protection and retention service increasingly problematic.


The HP StoreEver ESL G3 Tape Library offers a powerful combination of capabilities designed to help you meet these challenges head on—including scalable capacity, enhanced availability and reliability, simplified yet powerful management, and enterprise class security and compliance. These capabilities were further strengthened at HP Discover earlier this month when we announced new ESL G3 enhancements for even faster archive and long-term retention. The ESL G3 has increased its performance per frame by up to 2x, now supporting up to 18 tape drives per Control Module and 24 tape drives per Expansion Module for higher performance per library. Let’s take a closer look at how the ESL G3 can help you protect and archive data and content in large, complex SAN environments.

ITCentralStationJ.jpgLast week, my social media savvy colleague @CalvinZito a blog on HP Discover with recommended sessions and other events to add to your agenda.
