You probably know that some of the world’s biggest companies use HP StoreEver Tape as a major component of their archiving and long-term asset preservation strategy. This archiving role means the traditional usage model for HP tape media has changed. And consequently, how HP tests its LTO media for performance and reliability needs to change also.

By Laura Loredo, HP StoreEver Product Manager

 

Why is today a great day for tape users in general and LTO technology in particular? Because the LTO Program announced the extension of the technology roadmap to 10 generations. This increases capacity expectations to 120 TB per cartridge. Let’s talk about what makes this good news and where HP StoreEver LTO fits in the discussion.

Still better together: HP StoreOnce Disk and HP StoreEver Tape

Last week in our BURA Sunday blog, Keep calm! HP has got your data covered, I talked about our ability to protect your data with our wide variety of technologies and a broad product portfolio.

 

I also looked at the importance of a tiered data protection strategy using a combination of snapshots, replication, disk-based backup with data deduplication and tape-based data protection—depending on your RPO/RTO objectives and/or type of data.

 

This week, I’m focusing on a subset of this strategy: the choice around disk-based and tape-based data protection.

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?
