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.

I'm late for a very important date: VMworld!

It's almost midnight and in a few short hours, I'll be on a airplane with a short flight to San Francisco to attend VMworld 2010!  I'll be covering the event here all week.
