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 or 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.

HP StoreOnce VSA: Software-defined data protection for your virtualized environments

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage

 

StoreOnce_VSA_Icon_SDS308x220_tcm245_1534512_tcm245_1520664_tcm245-1534512.jpgI’m excited about VMworld this week, especially given the way software-defined storage is changing the way organizations implement storage technology. Since we are so close to VMworld, let me focus specifically on data protection—and give you a bit more information on some of the things you can expect to see and hear from us at the big VMware event this week in San Francisco. 

 

The exponential growth of data has forced your organization to look for cost-effective data protection solutions for your virtualized environments whether in the data center or in small and remote offices. Most vendors provide data deduplication solution that requires dedicated storage hardware. This isn’t always a cost-effective solution for remote/virtualized environments. To address this issue while providing greater flexibility, HP has extended the StoreOnce family to provide a software-defined backup solution: HP StoreOnce VSA. Here’s what the means to your organization.

Keep calm! HP has got your data covered.

Data protection and disaster recovery plans are very much like insurance. Because just like life insurance, your organization often assumes that your data protection strategies are adequate. You can easily fall into the complacency trap of not reviewing your policies until disasters strike.

 

What was a well-planned data protection strategy five years ago aligned to your unique requirements could be quite inadequate today, considering data growth, shrinking backup windows, and such. Is it time to review your data protection strategy?

In one of my earlier blogs, I discussed the need for your data protection strategy to be aligned with business priorities. In the same post I also talked about snapshots as the starting point of the data protection lifecycle. Here, I want to elaborate on that and discuss the integration of HP 3PAR Virtual Copy Software (aka snapshots) with a variety of backup ISV ecosystem partner solutions. It’s an ideal way to help your IT organizations meet the executive priorities for accelerated recoveries, improved user productivity and more frequent restore points to minimize data loss.
