HP dedupe, backup address big data compliance risks
By Asia Cloud Forum editors 11-Jun-2012
These trends, coupled with a tidal wave of data growth and new application workloads, expose organizations to serious compliance risks and issues
due to extended backup-and-restore windows and higher management costs.
Storage solutions that reduce recovery time, capacity needs and bandwidth costs will help organizations manage these risks. For example, the HP StoreOnce Backup deduplication solutions, when combined with the StoreOnce Catalyst software, deliver backup performance of up to 100TB per hour and data recovery of up to 40TB per hour.
Developed by HP Labs
, the federated dedup solution includes more than 50 patent-pending innovations. Data is deduplicated once using a single technology and then moved anywhere without ever having to be rehydrated-or added back in, claimed HP officials.
HP also promises increased productivity with HP Data Protector 7 software, powered by the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) set of governance tools that enable organizations to protect, find and recover information
based on the meaning and concepts contained within the data. The software protects information in large private clouds, as well as on-premise physical and virtual information.
As IT organizations require simple and reliable server and storage connectivity to keep up with the explosive growth of data traffic and storage, the HP Virtual Connect for 3Par with Flat SAN technology directly connects servers and storage in a single-tier storage area network (SAN) supported by the HP Automated Network Management 9.2 unified network-management solution. The SAN architecture can connect up to 768 blade servers to a single 3Par array without a dedicated SAN.
"Clients are struggling with complex, incompatible storage solutions that are costly, hard to manage, underutilized and built for the past," said Jim Merritt, senior vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Group at HP Asia Pacific and Japan. Hence, HP hopes the simplified and converged solutions that span from the midrange to the high end of the enterprise will enable organizations to maximize the value from their information efficiently.
"To remain competitive, our business protection processes must be reliable, and enable us to operate without impacting daily workflow or revenue-generating opportunities," said John Olsen, senior vice president and CIO of MetroPCS Communications, Inc
. "HP's StoreOnce deduplication solution will give us around-the-clock application access with lightning fast backup and recovery so we can continue to serve our customers even in the face of unexpected disasters."
A software development kit allows independent software vendors to help their customers use HP Data Protector 7 software, Symantec NetBackup or Symantec Backup Exec to manage deduplication and data movement in their HP StoreOnce Catalyst environments.
