HP når rekordhöjder för backup på 100TB/timme med HP StoreOnce

STOCKHOLM den 4 juni, 2012 – Idag introducerar HP nya dedupliceringslösningar för HP StoreOnce Backup som hjälper organisationer att skydda mer data på kortare tid.

De nya lösningarna är de första som levererar backup på upp till 100 terabyte (TB) per timme och återställning av data på upp till 40 TB per timme i ett enda system.(1) Det nya systemet är upp till tre gånger(1) respektive fem gånger snabbare(2) än närmaste konkurrenskraftiga erbjudande.

På grund av ökade datamängder och ökad arbetsbelastning från nya applikationer, riskerar organisationer dels allvarliga problem på grund av utökade backup- och återställningsfönster, men också administrationskostnader för hanteringen av en komplex infrastruktur.

HP kan nu leverera lösningar som ger:

  • Minskad tid för återhämtning, minskat kapacitetsbehov och minskade kostnader för bandbredd med HP StoreOnce Catalyst. I kombination med HP StoreOnce B6200 Backup ger det branschens bäst presterande backup och återställning. Kunder kan nu återställa på en enda dag vad som skulle ta en hel arbetsvecka med konkurrenternas lösningar.(1)
  • Ökad produktivitet med HP Data Protector 7 software, som drivs av Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), med styrningsverktyg som möjliggör kontextuell backup och återställning av information. För första gången kan kunderna nu med precision skydda, hitta och återställa information baserat på innehållet i data.
  • Förbättrad effektivitet av server- och lagringsanslutning med HP Virtual Connect for 3PAR with Flat SAN technology som tar bort behovet av komplexa SAN-infrastrukturer.
  • Högre driftsäkerhet samt bättre nätverksprestanda, vilket stöder explosionen av datatrafik och lagring, som är knuten till komponenter för konvergerad infrastruktur med HP Automated Network Management 9.2. Denna programvara hjälper it-organisationer att hänga med i snabbt föränderliga affärskrav via en gemensam lösning för nätverksadministration som är effektiv, automatiserad och säker.

    HP Converged Infrastructure gör det möjligt för organisationer att flytta resurser från hantering och integrering av traditionella oflexibla it-lösningar till en it-infrastruktur som stöder processinnovation och strategiska initiativ.

"Kunder kämpar med komplexa, inkompatibla lagringslösningar som är kostsamma, svåra att hantera, underutnyttjade och byggda för gårdagen", säger Jovan Vujic, produktchef Storage, HP Sverige. "HP förändrar lagringsindustrin med förenklade och konvergerade lösningar som spänner över alla delar av företaget, vilket möjliggör för organisationer att maximera värdet av sin information på effektivast möjliga vis."

HP StoreOnce: redefining data deduplication
HP StoreOnce is the industry’s only federated deduplication solution, which means data is deduplicated once using a single technology and then moved anywhere without ever having to be rehydrated—or added back in.(3) HP StoreOnce features a consistent, high-performance deduplication architecture that spans the enterprise, from application servers in remote offices to central data centers, eliminating the inefficiencies and costs of first-generation approaches.

Leveraging technology developed by HP Labs, the company’s central research arm, HP StoreOnce includes more than 50 patent-pending innovations. By combining the HP StoreOnce deduplication engine with a unique scale-out cluster design, HP delivers the industry’s only large-scale deduplication appliance with fully automated high-availability features.(3) The solution also has an “autonomic restart” capability that ensures backup jobs complete even if there is a major hardware failure, reducing risk of data loss.

“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 chief information officer, 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.”

New HP StoreOnce Catalyst software for HP StoreOnce Backup systems allows clients to deduplicate data on application servers or backup servers before it is transferred to a centralized HP StoreOnce Backup system. This approach increases flexibility, enabling clients to optimize backup processes, eliminate wasted resources, reduce network bandwidth cost and improve backup throughput.

Clients can use HP Data Protector 7 software, Symantec NetBackup or Symantec Backup Exec to manage deduplication and data movement in their HP StoreOnce Catalyst environment. Independent software vendors (ISVs) can achieve this same level of control with the HP StoreOnce Catalyst open software development kit.

Additional innovations for transforming the storage industry
Traditional data-protection and storage-networking approaches are complex, incompatible and ill-equipped to handle the new requirements associated with the growth of unstructured data, mobility and cloud-based applications.

Powered by Autonomy IDOL, the new HP Data Protector 7 software provides the industry’s only meaning-based information protection solution.(1) HP Data Protector 7 software automatically understands concepts in data, which dramatically changes the scope and benefits of data protection. Now users can retrieve all information relevant to a particular idea or topic, regardless of keywords or other search parameters. The industry’s first universal information-protection software solution for the enterprise, HP Data Protector 7 software combines cloud-based backup to the world’s largest private cloud with on-premise physical and virtual information protection.(1)

Increased convergence between server and storage eliminates complexity
Legacy, multitier Fibre Channel network architectures require a complex web of network cards, interconnects, cables and switches to keep pace with changing network traffic patterns. This creates performance bottlenecks and adds complexity. By eliminating the need for dedicated host-bus adapters, switches and associated cables to connect servers and storage, the new HP Virtual Connect Direct-Attach Fibre Channel for HP 3PAR Storage can reduce storage networking costs by 50 percent and enables 2.5 times faster provisioning compared to competitive offerings.(1)

HP Virtual Connect Direct-Attach Fibre Channel for HP 3PAR Storage also reduces storage protocol layers, cutting latency by 55 percent and speeding operations such as virtual machine I/O and consolidation density.

HP Virtual Connect Direct-Attach Fibre Channel for HP 3PAR Storage is ideal for virtual and cloud environments.
