StoreVirtual VSA Peer Motion and ATSB Motion

Moving.pngOk - I couldn't resist the synergy in the title of the post. If you missed me saying it, ATSB and all of our Enterprise blogs are going to migrate to the the Enterprise Business Community. This will be my last blog post here before we migrate to the new home for ATSB.


The team doing the migration is moving 2 years worth of posts plus ten "hand-selected" posts that are older than two years. While looking through the older posts to decide which other 10 I'd move, I came across one I had done titled "HP LeftHand P4000 Peer Motion demo".  No point giving you the link because that post is going to be wiped into the data bit bucket and will be lost forever. I sent the link to my StoreVirtual solution architects and asked them if the demo in the video was still current even though it had the old branding in it. Several came back and said that it was still a good demo and they liked it. However, one of the SAs replied with a link to an updated demo I had done about 6 months ago.

Some things are better blended together

By Kate Davis, WW Marketing Manager, HP Software-Defined Storage   @KateAtHP


Hyper-convergence brings blend and balance—not rip and replace—to your data center


Blended_ATSB_sized_16Sept.jpgSome things are just better when blended together like: fruit and yogurt, Velveeta and RoTel, or if it’s 5 o’clock…Tequila, Triple Sec and limes.


Blending is good for IT as well. Sometimes you have to settle for new components that stand apart from the rest of your infrastructure in order to get the project moving. But more and more, adopting new technologies today has left us with a choice to make – Build a silo or blend into the current infrastructure. See how you can blend the latest technologies into your current environment and still keep the business rolling speedily along.

Veeam integrates with HP StoreOnce Catalyst to deliver enhanced data protection

By Srikanth Venkataseshu, Senior Marketing Manager, BURA Solutions, HP Storage  @srikseshu 


Advancing the data protection your agile, virtualized data center really needs

As long-time technology partners, HP and Veeam have one goal: to enhance and deliver data protection for virtual environments that really works. Veeam integration with HP 3PAR StoreServ and StoreVirtual snapshots has been available for many years. You might want to check out this blog with an in-depth demo on HP and Veeam integration designed to protect virtual environments.  Today we take another significant step in advancing data protection with the announcement of Veeam Availability Suite v9 with HP StoreOnce Catalyst. Before we get into the specifics of the integration, let’s take a step back to understand why good data protection is crucial as data centers become more agile and virtualized.



Considerations for your transition to hyper-convergence

By Kate Davis, WW Marketing Manager, HP Software-Defined Storage   @KateAtHP


transformation_ATSB_iStock_000002961075_Medium_28August_sized.jpgTransformation. Change. Adoption. Growth.  All are the new constant. It’s what we are surrounded with as our environment and culture increasingly changes and can’t be overlooked.


It used to be easy. Purchase new servers or storage, use them until they die or are unsupported then repurchase or replace. But that’s way past being an option. Technology and capabilities change dramatically many times before your service contract runs out. How are you supposed to keep up?

High availability for hyper-convergence: it pays to think ahead

By Janet Runberg, SDS Sales Enablement Manager, HP Storage


We all know you can’t prevent data loss or system failures. What you can do is build increased availability into your IT infrastructure with an efficient backup system. Your best bet is to find an integrated, open platform solution that’s fully supported by the vendors, so you don’t have to suffer through testing interoperability of systems during the deployment phase.
