Archiving with HP StoreAll Storage: An answer to rampant unstructured data growth

In the past, a common response has been to simply throw more primary storage at the problem. However, that’s usually a temporary bandage at best and wholly ineffectual at worst.

Why archiving instead
Archiving is an alternative response (and one that I strongly recommend for every large organization). Archiving enables you to get your arms around rampant unstructured data growth. However, it does much more than just that. It can enable you to increase overall data center economics and efficiency by offloading primary storage and easing pressure on your backup windows. It can also improve your data governance and risk management. Having the right archiving target is key to how much benefit you will realize. I believe that general purpose storage is the wrong target for storing archive data within a large organization. Instead, I believe that purpose-built archive storage is the right target. That is where HP StoreAll Storage comes in. Here's how and why - including the details on new enhancements.

Relax this summer with modernized backup and recovery to enhance your data protection ecosystem

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


Summer.jpgIt’s summertime! And who doesn’t want to enjoy backyard barbecues, watch soccer World Cup, and spend more time with friends and family? How does it feel to be called back to work on a Sunday afternoon to fix a broken backup job or a failed recovery? Not so great, right? Today, I want to call your attention to a number of advancements with our Backup and Recovery Solutions that will further modernize your backup infrastructure – so you can have peace of mind knowing your data is completely protected and get back to enjoying summer with your loved ones.

Moving beyond traditional backup and archiving

I hosted a webcast on BrightTalk recently titled "Moving beyond traditional backup & archiving" - and I wanted to make that webcast broadly available.  In order to watch it on BrightTalk, you have to have a BrightTalk account so I wanted to give you that webcast here.  So here's what I did - I have the slides I used from the webcast on SlideShare and the audio is on my podcast - and both posted here.


The first 15 minutes or so of the webcast is Jason Buffington, a Sr Analyst with ESG sharing some really good research around what customers are doing today with backup.  Jason has a ton of experience in backup and has some great insights.




The last part of the webcast features David Scott, SVP and GM of HP Storage talking a bit about our portfolio.  You'll hear David talk about the HP StoreOnce portfolio, focused on backup, and HP StoreAll, for archiving.

Backup, Recovery, and Archive (BURA) updates from HP Discover

If you were paying attention before HP Discover, I had started talking about the BURA Challenge.  And if you watched the discussions coming from HP Discover, BURA was a hot topic as we totally refreshed both the StoreOnce and StoreAll product lines.  Jake Ludington was in the Blogger Lounge doing short video interviews.  I asked Patrick Osborne to walk through the announcements with Jake.  Patrick is the Director of Product Management and Marketing for StoreOnce, StoreAll, and StoreEver and does a great job giving a summary of the BURA news in under 9 minutes! He and Jake got pretty geeky talking about StoreAll Express Query.


Hopefully you saw the ChalkTalks I did on each of these product enhancements but here they are again for you:

There's also a short video with David Scott talking BURA - so go to the blog to see the full post.

HP StoreAll Archive - announcement from HP Discover

With HP Discover last week, I tried as best I could to have ChalkTalks ready for all of our storage announcements.  And I almost made it!  I worked on the final ChalkTalk on my Newark to Barcelona flight but then realized I was missing my HP Storage ChalkTalk introduction video - that 8 seconds or so that is at the beginning of all my ChalkTalks.  I have a Z600 workstation that I use 99% of the time but that doesn't travel easily and I forgot to grab those files for my HP EliteBook engineering workstation. 


But better a couple days late than never - so here's the HP StoreAll Archive ChalkTalk.
