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.

Data protection: one size doesn’t fit all

By Srikanth Venkataseshu, Worldwide Solutions Marketing Manager, BURA, HP Storage

 

If you have been following our BURA Sunday blogs for the past few weeks, you may have noticed that we’ve been discussing a lot about modernizing data protection using HP StoreOnce backup, our disk-based deduplication solution. If not done right, data protection leaves a big chasm around IT’s ability to meet the SLAs required to fulfill business objectives. With days to go before HP Discover begins, I want to take you all on a slightly different journey – along a path where we view data protection from an application and data life cycle management perspective.

Adaptive Backup and Recovery from HP

spellicy.jpgLast week many of my colleagues around the world came together in Phoenix for what was a really incredible week of celebrating our accomplishments and planning on how we continue the success.  One of the people there was Stephen Spellicy, my fellow vExpert and the director of product management in HP Autonomy for data protection solutions.  There's a lot of collaboration between our teams as we have a strong focus on Backup, Recovery, and Archive (BURA) solutions.

 

I took the opportunity to talk to Stephan about the solutions he manages and to learn about something I've been hearing a lot lately, Adaptive Backup and Recovery.  In the podcast Stephan talks about the three primary products in his portfolio, discusses how HP StoreOnce and Data Protector are working closely together and then gives an overview of Adaptive Backup and Recovery - a topic that I'll talk to him again as we get closer to HP Discover in June. 

Simply StoreIT solutions for Data Protection and Virtualization

I started this week with an overview of the announcements we made at our HP Global Partner Conference. In that post, I pointed you to the updated Simply StoreIT Overview ChalkTalk.  I'll end GPC week with one final update of interest to small and midsized businesses.  

 

HP Simply StoreIT is for SMBs with a focus on solutions for virtualization, backup and data protection, file sharing, Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server.  The goal is to help you, via channel partners, quickly find the storage solution that best fits your business. 

 

The foundation of Simply StoreIT is to identify where you are in your IT journey: starting out, building momentum, or expanding your business.  And armed with that information, its easy to determine what  product can best address your needs.  I'd suggest if you didn't see the overview ChalkTalk I mentioned at the start, you take a look at that.  Also, I'll point you to the Simply StoreIT program overview (PDF) if you want to learn more. 

 

You will be interested in the free "Get Protected Guarantee" Backup Assessment.  It does require registration but I think it's worth it.   When you take the assessment it includes:

  • Backup window details
  • Successful vs. failed backup details
  • Retention times
  • Daily data backed up
