What's new

  • Federated Catalyst (under registered release, see your HP rep or Reseller) allows Catalyst stores to span nodes to create fewer larger stores simplifying backup management in large environments
  • Catalyst over FC (under registered release, see your HP rep or Reseller) provides all the ISV control and source side deduplication benefits of current StoreOnce Catalyst but via your FC fabric.
StoreOnce Integrity Plus checks data in the backup process, during recovery and also continually checks the data when at rest, correcting errors if necessary to avoid the risk of corrupted backups.
