Storage Replication Software

Are you looking for a way to reliably protect your business critical applications without impacting performance? HPE Recovery Manager Central Software (RMC) delivers unified data protection, addressing a range of RPO/RTO objectives with flexible recovery options using snapshots, backups and replicated data copies to meet a wide variety of DR requirements. RMC automates snapshot-based protection on supported storage platforms without any impact on the application server. Additionally, RMC’s Express Protect enables fast, efficient backups directly from supported primary storage platforms to HPE StoreOnce Backup systems to deliver integrated data protection that goes beyond the storage array itself. RMC integrates with VMware vSphere, MS SQL, Oracle and SAP HANA databases to ensure the snapshots and backups are application-consistent. Furthermore, RMC also enables Peer Copy, which delivers bi-directional data copy between HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HPE StoreVirtual VSA.

What's new

  • Protection of SAP HANA databases on HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage through application-consistent snapshots on 3PAR and Express Protect Backups to HPE StoreOnce Backup systems.
  • Protection of VMware VMs on HPE StoreVirtual VSA using application-consistent snapshots and Express Protect Backups to StoreOnce.
  • Volume-level bi-directional data copy between HPE StoreVirtual VSA and HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage array through HPE Peer Copy.
  • Ability to run RMC Software on a Hyper-V VM.
  • All RMC licenses are now included by default with all supported primary storage arrays including HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 and 20000 models, HPE StoreVirtual VSA and HC 250 Hyper-Converged systems.

Features

Unified Data Protection for Your Business Critical Applications

RMC delivers unified data protection and data copy management for your business critical application data stored on HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays, HC 250 Hyper Converged systems or StoreVirtual VSA and offers flexible recovery options using snapshots, replicated data copies or backups.

RMC leverages HPE 3PAR StoreServ Virtual Copy and HPE StoreVirtual snapshot features to create highly space-efficient snapshots and integrates with various applications such as VMware vSphere, MS SQL, Oracle and SAP HANA to ensure the snapshots are application-consistent.

Furthermore, the RMC Express Protect feature enables fast and efficient backup of application data directly from the supported primary storage platforms to StoreOnce Backup systems, independent of backup software, and copied off-site for DR if required, using StoreOnce Catalyst Copy.

RMC also enables Peer Copy which delivers bi-directional data copy functionality between 3PAR and StoreVirtual VSA storage array by moving only incrementally changed blocks quickly and efficiently. Use the copy for test/dev applications, for ROBO data protection or as a lower-cost replication tier.

RMC also provides a programmable interface via REST API SDK for scripting so you can integrate the snapshot, replication and backup management capabilities of RMC on supported storage platforms with any business application.

Simple, Automated and Non-disruptive Backup and Recovery of VMware VMDKs and Data Stores

RMC for VMware (RMC-V) allows VM administrators to create, schedule and manage VMware application-consistent snapshots on 3PAR StoreServ storage arrays, StoreVirtual VSA and the HC 250 Hyper Converged system for VMware vSphere for rapid online recovery.

Additionally, the RMC Express Protect feature enables automatic, fast and efficient backup of VMware VMs and data stores directly from the supported primary storage platforms to StoreOnce Backup systems, independent of backup software.

Integrated into the VMware vCenter Server Virtualization management console for centralized control; the scheduler feature automates snapshot creation on 3PAR StoreServ, StoreVirtual VSA and the HC 250 Hyper Converged system for VMware vSphere as well as Express Protect backups to StoreOnce.

Snapshot efficiency; uses an array-based approach that leverages HPE 3PAR StoreServ Virtual Copy and StoreVirtual snapshot features to create highly space-efficient snapshots without the use of separate agents installed on individual virtual machines.

Element Recovery Technology (ERT) facilitates granular recovery of an individual VM or an individual file within a VM from an Express Protect Backup on StoreOnce, helping achieve stringent RTO objectives and minimizing disruption and downtime of production VMs.

Rapid, Non-disruptive, Recovery of Microsoft SQL, Oracle and SAP HANA Databases

RMC for SQL (RMC-S) allows Microsoft SQL database administrators (DBAs) to create, schedule and manage SQL-application consistent snapshots on a 3PAR array.

RMC for Oracle (RMC-O) allows Oracle database administrators (DBAs) to create, schedule and manage Oracle-application consistent snapshots on a 3PAR array.

RMC for SAP HANA (RMC-SH) allows SAP HANA database administrators (DBAs) to create, schedule and manage SAP HANA application consistent snapshots on a 3PAR array.

Additionally, the RMC Express Protect feature enables automatic, fast and efficient backup of SQL, Oracle or SAP HANA data volumes directly from 3PAR to StoreOnce, independent of backup server software.

Furthermore, the StoreOnce Catalyst Copy feature enables copying the database backups off-site to one or more StoreOnce appliances for DR purposes.
