- New storage solutions transform how clients protect, manage information
- Backup up to 100 TB per hour and recover data up to 40 TB per hour in a single system
HP has announced new deduplication solutions for the HP StoreOnce Backup family that enable organizations to manage risk as they deal with explosive data growth by protecting more data in less time.
Data deduplication is a specialized form of compression which reduces storage requirements by getting rid of redundant data.
The new solutions are the first to deliver backup performance of up to 100 terabytes (TB) per hour and data recovery of up to 40 TB per hour in a single system, HP said in a statement.
The company claimed this was up to three times and five times faster, respectively, than the closest competitive offering.
Faced with a tidal wave of data growth and new application workloads, organizations risk serious compliance issues due to extended backup-and-restore windows as well as management costs associated with infrastructure complexity, HP said.
“Clients are struggling with complex, incompatible storage solutions that are costly, hard to manage, underutilized and built for the past,” said Chung Chee Cheong (pic), country manager, Storage, HP Malaysia.
“HP is transforming the storage industry with simplified and converged solutions that span from the midrange to the high end of the enterprise, enabling organizations to maximize the value from their information in the most efficient way possible.”
The new solutions promise reduced recovery time, capacity needs and bandwidth costs with HP StoreOnce Catalyst software, which combined the enhanced HP StoreOnce B6200 Backup, allows clients to recover in a single day what would take a full work-week with the competition.
Clients can also enjoy increased productivity with HP Data Protector 7 software, powered by the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), featuring governance tools that enable contextual backup and recovery of information.
For the first time, clients can precisely protect, find and recover information based on the meaning and concepts contained within the data, HP said.
With the new deduplication solutions, clients can also enjoy higher reliability as well as improved network performance, which supports the explosion of data traffic and storage connected to converged infrastructure components with HP Automated Network Management 9.2.
This software offering helps IT organizations keep up with fast-changing business demands via a unified network-management solution that is efficient, automated and secure, the company claimed.
