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.

You need to figure out what works with what, how to configure it and how to architect a solution that solves the problem you have in your business. HP has everything you need to design, configure and implement your solution.

 

Let’s take a look at how we can help you identify all the piece parts, connect them all together, and solve your data protection challenges. (And you’ll understand how it just might remind me of my first electronics kit.)

 

 

 

 

Cache is king for the world’s number one car auction brand

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

 

If you like storage but love cars then this blog is most definitely for you! Barrett-Jackson, producer of The World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions (TM), recently implemented an active archive solution – spanning software, disk and tape – to safeguard its ever-expanding portfolio of car auction video assets.

 

First, I’ll share more about Barrett-Jackson, then delve in to how HP StoreEver Tape as NAS is helping the company combine the performance benefits of disk with the economics and long-term retention value of tape.

What is Tape as NAS or tNAS

I attended the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) a couple of weeks ago. We had several blog posts about the event leading up to and and now that I'm back, I have a few videos that I'll be sharing. Today I have a video of a discussion I had with long time tape storage expert Mark Fleischhauer around Tape as NAS (tNAS).

 

In the video, Mark defines tNAS, discusses how it can fit into an existing workflow, and talks about a customer using it today. This post will be short because the video does all the talking.  So here it is.

 

Mark has written three blog posts about tNAS where you can dig deeper and learn more. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments. And if you want to learn more, visit hp.com/go/ltfs.
