Backup refers to the copying of data so that these additional copies may be restored after a data loss event. Backups differ from archives and backup systems differ from fault-tolerant systems. Backups are useful primarily for two purposes: to restore a computer to an operational state following a disaster (called disaster recovery) and to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted.
The data center is getting bigger and more complex and so too is the asset inventory. Every new asset has an impact on the day–to–day operations of the data center – from power consumption and problem resolution to capacity planning and change management.
Although ESG continues to see the vast majority of IT organizations living within a disk-plus-tape world, no one can argue against the idea that the cloud is becoming a viable and attractive component of any data protection architecture. Modern disk and tape solutions have overwhelming benefits for ROI, but those benefits can often be expanded by leveraging the economics and additional agility capabilities of a cloud tier. And all of those tiers would benefit from smarter data protection and preservation mechanisms through the combination of both backups and archiving.
In any storage system it is essential to ensure that the integrity of the data stored is maintained so data can be recovered exactly as it was written. HP StoreOnce appliances have been designed with the necessary technology that delivers this essential high degree of data protection. HP has unique technology that protects data throughout its lifecycle when stored on the HP StoreOnce appliance. This paper will discuss the methods used at various stages to provide this high degree of data integrity.
Although modern backup solutions can offer significant recovery agility, backup as an IT process is generally less than “enough” for the data protection goals that IT is being asked to deliver. As IT is embracing snapshots, replication, archiving, and availability mechanisms to enhance business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) preparedness, it is important to realize that there is a better way than piecemealing each component, and then wondering why CapEx and OpEx are so out of line.
In this report, we’ll examine first why HP StoreOnce and HP Data Protector products are truly game-changing on their own rights. Then, we will look at why they get even "better together” as a complete BURA solution that can be more flexibly deployed to meet backup challenges than any other solution in the market today.
When you have voluminous data sets growing at an unabated rate, in formats that are unique and complex, how do you address your backup and recovery needs? While relying on traditional backup and recovery solutions can complicate matters, a better approach is to use a solution that enables your IT organization to make decisions that are more intelligent by integrating predictive analysis and an adaptive approach to backup and recovery.
IT organizations are challenged to do more with limited budgets and fewer IT resources. Meeting these pain points requires a paradigm shift towards optimized data protection. As a leader in storage, HP is working with Symantec to deliver innovative solutions to modernize data protection for Symantec NetBackup environments that enable complete protection.
Enterprise IT organizations are challenged by accelerating data growth and increasing reliance on the data. This requires a fundamental rethinking of how data is protected and accessed. HP StoreOnce backup and CommVault Simpana deliver an integrated, end-to-end data protection and rapid recoverability solution to enhance business continuity and resiliency.
