HP XP Business Copy Software is a local replication solution that provides data copies within a single XP Disk Array, or in storage systems attached to an XP Disk Array as external storage. HP XP Business Copy Software uses array-based replication technologies that do not interfere with host-level operations, allowing customers to spend time conducting business rather than worrying about how backup and testing operations will impact your systems. Providing both snapshots and mirrors, HP XP Business Copy Software reduces the cost of backups, accelerates recovery from failures, provides deployment flexibility, and simplifies application testing. Create full copies in physically separate locations within the array so that accesses to the copy will have no impact on the original production volume. Use the space-efficient snapshot capability to create frequent point-in-time copies of important volumes so that you can quickly restore data to an earlier version if necessary.

Features

Manage Data Availability Requirements for your Business without Compromising on Performance

Maintain multiple copies of critical data at local and remote sites, allowing recovery from planned and unplanned downtime. HP XP Business Copy Software integrates with HP XP Continuous Access software to provide this extra measure of confidence that your data will be available when you need it.

You can create multiple copies of production data and make them available to backup applications. While the backup application utilizes the copy, the primary data remains available for the production application. Production applications continue with minimal impact from the backup process.

Both HP Storage Data Protector Software and VERITAS NetBackup have been tightly integrated with HP XP Business Copy Software to provide zero downtime and split-mirror backup solutions for XP Disk Arrays in a variety of server environments.

With the snapshot feature you can create regular point-in-time copies of production data, permitting fast disk-based restores in the event of any problems with the primary data.

Manage Replication Across Internal or External Storage to Gain Cost Efficiency

Create separate copies of production data that can be independently accessed and modified without affecting production data. Copies can be used as source data to test new applications before introducing them to production.

One product provides multiple capabilities. You can mirror open systems volumes, mirror mainframe volumes, and you can create snapshots of open systems volumes, all in one convenient cost-effective product.

Quickly and easily understand complex data replication environments with HP XP Replication Monitor Software, a centralized web-based replication management tool. For enhanced ease of use, HP XP Replication Monitor Software is tightly integrated with HP XP Command View Advanced Edition.

You can use HP XP Business Copy Software with external storage, providing flexibility to choose the performance and cost characteristics of data copies.
