In today’s IT, virtual machines (VMs) have increased efficiency, improved business continuity, and decreased data center operating cost. All of these benefits combined with proper management have allowed IT staffs to focus more time innovating rather than reacting. Backup and protection are important aspects of managing these new VM environments—but they’re often a real challenge and worry for IT.
Using a fully managed backup service that includes scheduled maintenance, monitoring, and problem resolution can protect the benefits of your VMs. HP blends best practices in software, hardware, and management to protect your file system and application data. For example, we apply HP Data Protector software to automate and simplify application protection in the data center.
Our managed solution targets key service levels such as recovery time objective (RTOs) and recovery point objective (RPOs). You can choose an RTO of up to 72 hours for most considerations, including very large volumes of data, while the RPO is the last successful backup.
