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.

What's new (and coming) with HP StoreVirtual

Part of our pre-VMworld announcement was focused on Software-Defined Storage - and Kate Davis did a great job giving you those details.  But I love when I have someone from our product team come to me and say, "Hey, can I do something on the blog?" Jessica Burton is on our StoreVirtual team and volunteered to do a ShortTake giving a bit more on what we announced with StoreVirtual.  I usually post these as a podcast with slides on SlideShare, but today I want to give you the YouTube version - because I haven't uploaded the podcast yet!  The ShortTake speaks for itself so I'll just give it to watch for yourself.

 

Either go to the full blog to watch the ShortTake or click on the graphic. 

HP Storage news for VMworld

The one thing we are at HP Storage is consistent - and you can expect that when we're heading to VMworld, we'll have some big storage news to announce and today is no different.  And I get to tell you about it.  The news is around Storage for the Software-Defined Data Center and breaks down into two buckets that I'll cover at a high-level in this blog and we'll go deeper on in the next few days.

 

Software-defined storage

I caught up with Kate Davis recently and had a discussion with her about the software-defined storage news.  Kate blogs here regularily and she'll share a bit more details on Saturday morning.

 

HP 3PAR StoreServ news

There are a couple of things to talk about with HP 3PAR StoreServ so check the full blog post to get the details.

HP StoreVirtual Hybrid Storage drives stronger price per performance over competitors

By Jessica Burton, Worldwide Product Marketing Manager, HP StoreVirtual

 

StoreVirtual_productJ.jpgEarlier this month, IOmark and Evaluator Group released audited benchmark results for HP StoreVirtual 4335 Hybrid Storage. According to Russ Fellows, a senior partner with the Evaluator Group, “HP StoreVirtual performed very well on a per node basis and with its scale-out capabilities is able to scale up performance and capacity linearly to meet increased virtual machine needs. We have tested other hybrid arrays without HP’s advanced functionality or scale. The StoreVirtual 4335 delivered 20-to-25% better price/performance than competing systems.” Check out more benchmark details in the blog.

The market leader and the market newbie: a Software-Defined Storage comparison

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

 

Market_Piechart.pngIt’s been a year since I wrote my first article on Software-Defined Storage. At that time we were at the definition stage – what does the Software-Defined Storage (SDS) term mean, and what products fit that category. Since then, the term SDS has become widely known and accepted but what's been missing is the market data, but Wikibon fixed that last Friday as they released their first report of the Server SAN market.

 

What else has been missing?  A blog from me that offers a compare of HP StoreVirtual VSA and VMware VSAN. Well, the wait is over.
