Can you protect your data for free? Introducing the new FREE 1TB StoreOnce VSA

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage   @ashwinkshetty

 

Back in February, I wrote a blog about the latest enhancement to our StoreOnce VSA platform. Since then, I’ve been receiving many questions on Twitter about the free 1TB StoreOnce VSA. So to address some of your questions, let me summarize the whats and wherefores—as we have just recently enabled the link for users to download the free 1TB StoreOnce VSA. Here’s the most important question! Read on with my blog for more!

The 1TB StoreOnce VSA is downloadable from the HP Software Depot. You can access this page directly from this web page: www.hp.com/go/FreeBackup. To continue requires that you have an HP Passport account (which is easily created if you do not already have one). After this, you need to enter your HP Passport credentials and some user information. This takes you to the download page where the StoreOnce VSA software can be downloaded. From the same download page there is also a link to download the License Key Entitlement Certificate.

A year can seem like a long time—or it can fly by in a flash. But any time you’ve done any thing every week for 12 months straight, it’s a good idea to look back and think, “Was that worth it?” Our first 3PAR Thursday post was April 17, 2014, and now one year and 52 posts later, I have to say that YES, it was so worth it. Why? Because we have so much to tell you about what’s happening both in the primary storage market and with 3PAR StoreServ.

 

With 3PAR Thursday, we’ve been able to provide one convenient blog spot for sharing it all. Over the past 12 months, through our blogs, videos and customer stories, we’ve featured the many aspects of the flash evolution. Here are some of the highlights revisited

Making it matter with HP ExpertOne storage certifications

At a recent event, I met Dean Colpitts. Dean is an HP ExpertOne Master Accredited Solutions Experts (MASE) and owns Members IT Group (MITG). MITG helps insurance providers in Canada with a service that connects them and their brokers with critical information they need to speed up claims and policy renewal information.

 

Dean and his team manage their customers' infrastructure - and not just manage it but they architect their IT environment, procure it, and provide ongoing support. I got to spend a lot of time with Dean at the event and really thought telling his story would be useful.

With NAB 2015 – and our NAB blogging on Around the Storage Block on storage for media & entertainment – in full swing, we thought it would be a good time to ask: Do you know how healthy your archive data is on tape? Do you wonder if you’ll be able to get it back when you need it?

 

Like your own personal health, it’s important to have routine check-ups to detect any possible problems early. Today, I’m talking about how the HP StoreEver Data Verification process can measure the health of your data stored on LTO tape and how it all works.
