Efficiency Saves you Time and Money

Achieve an average of 50 percent space savings with granular data deduplication and compression.4 In Windows Storage Server 2016-based HPE StoreEasy 1000 systems, an enhanced deduplication engine supports large files, up to 1 TB, and volumes up to 64 TB.

Built-in file sync and share enables employees, mobile workers and distributed teams to access their work files from any Internet-connected desktop, smartphone, or tablet. Organizations can apply policies to wipe devices remotely and enforce lock screen passwords to protect data on employee devices.

Advanced data management capabilities automatically improve use of resources, comply with data retention policies, and enhance protection of sensitive files—even if they’re downloaded from HPE StoreEasy and emailed to unauthorized recipients.

Help users and applications get more done, faster, with optional flash acceleration bundles for HPE StoreEasy 1660 and 1860 that provide up to 4x faster access to frequently hot data.

Multi-dimensional Protection for Your Data
