Focusing on Backup - with a podcast and video interview

I've had a busy week but want to cap it off by giving you a really good podcast and video that I've done over the last few weeks. And while it's not BURA Sunday, I am on the topic of backup and recovery with the podcast and video.  The podcast is with Rick Vanover from Veeam, so go to the full blog post to get that. 

 

While at Nth Symposium, there was a really good keynote from Richard Tengdin from Nth where he gave some great advice about keeping your backup modernized.  Nth was kind enough to give me a booth in the expo area and I did an interview with Richard there.  Here's the interview.

 

The BURA team here has been doing a great job with their BURA Sunday blog posts so be sure to check out their blogs.  It really is great having a team of people helping with great information on the blog.

State court IT department rules against disconnected data protection silos

By Andrew Dickerson, Senior Marketing Manager, HP Storage Backup, Recovery and Archive Solutions

 


ReportJ.jpgNo enterprise wants to pull resources away from its core business operations. But that’s exactly what you’re doing if you use separate backup applications in your data center and remote sites to protect Big Data and mission-critical applications. Disconnected backup silos add cost and complexity and raise the risk that data may go unprotected. To safeguard your data and your business, you need a simple, affordable and reliable end-to-end solution that lets you manage all your backup sites from a single pane of glass. 

 

Teams that deploy individual storage, application and virtualization solutions can create backup silos that you then have to manage separately. One of our customers, the IT department of a U.S. state court system, backs up data at distributed sites across the state. Read more about our customer’s story here – and take advantage of the opportunity to read this Taneja Group white paper. You’ll discover the business benefits of having one simplified, fully compatible and reliable backup and recovery solution for all your corporate data. (Registration required.)

Customers Share Their Secrets first video - BlueShore Financial

We have been kicking around the idea of doing a reqular series of customer interviews.  I get the opportunity to do these at big events like HP Discover or VMworld, but I want to do it with a regular cadence and waiting for an event isn't going to make for a regular show. 

 

I worked with a smal team and we've come up with a way to do interviews even when I can't be in the same location as our customer.  So I'm really pleased to present our first Customers Share Their Secrets with HPStorageGuy Calvin Zito.  In our first show, I speak to Ryan Burgess, Manager of Technology Infrastructure from BlueShore Financial in British Columbia.  They have a unique value proposition as a botique financial institute and I talked to Ryan about the challenges he faced and how HP 3PAR and HP StoreOnce helped him be an IT hero.  Here's the show.

HP StoreOnce 6500: Driving industry leadership with highly resilient backup

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage

 

6500.jpgLast BURA Sunday I talked about our innovative approach to protecting your data in virtualized or remote environments with StoreOnce VSA. Today I’m shifting the focus to the other end of the spectrum: protecting data in large or fast growing enterprises. I don’t have to tell you that the pace of business is accelerating and your company has to move toward a real-time business model—one where transactions and information sharing are near instantaneous. This transition is increasing demands on not only the performance and scalability of the underlying IT infrastructure but also availability and reliability. As process timelines are compressed from weeks or days to hours, minutes or even seconds, the cost of downtime skyrockets. Almost all aspects of today’s business environment rely on the uninterrupted availability of platforms, applications and data. Here’s how HP StoreOnce 6500 Backup meets that need for highly resilient backup.

 

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.
