Protecting your business-critical applications without impacting performance is proving ever more challenging in the face of all-flash data centers, unrelenting data growth, stringent recovery service level agreements (SLAs) and increasingly virtualized hybrid cloud environments.

Traditional approaches to data protection are unable to cost-effectively deliver the end-to-end protection that your applications and hypervisors demand. A faster, easier, more efficient, and reliable way to protect data is needed.

  • Evolving data protection architectures for business‑critical applications

    Server-centric backup processes can impact application performance with data typically flowing through the application and backup server.

    Backup server infrastructures introduce escalating cost and complexity with the need to disruptively acquire and manage additional servers, software licenses, and networking equipment as application data grows.

    Array-based snapshots and replication provide fast, nondisruptive point-in-time copies of your data. But snapshots alone cannot deliver comprehensive backup as they have retention limitations, and a dependence on the underlying storage system. Simply put, your snapshots will be lost if the storage system fails.

    A better approach is to combine the near instant, nonintrusive availability of local and remote snapshots and replication with the reliable recovery and cost-effective retention of backups. This innovative modernized architecture is delivered with application-aware, flash-integrated data protection.

  • Welcome to flash-integrated data protection
    HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software integrates HPE 3PAR, HPE Primera, and HPE Nimble Storage with HPE StoreOnce Systems to provide a flash-integrated snapshot, replication, and backup, service that augments traditional backup approaches.

    Combining the performance of snapshots and replication with the protection of backups, Recovery Manager Central enables fast, efficient, reliable, and simple protection for your business-critical applications.

  • Eliminate backup windows and enable fast recovery

    Do you need to deliver on stringent recovery SLAs with no performance impact on your applications?

    HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) lets you eradicate the backup window and enable rapid recovery with fast, nondisruptive, application consistent local and remote snapshots.

    HPE RMC removes the application server and backup server from the datapath, thus eliminating any performance impact on the application. Scalable, nonduplicative snapshots allow administrators a greater number of backups for a frequent extended history of recovery points, offering flexibility when committing to tight recovery point objective (RPO) SLAs.

    HPE RMC leverages snapshot differential technology in HPE 3PAR, HPE Primera, and HPE Nimble Storage, ensuring that only changed blocks are sent to the HPE StoreOnce System. This reduces both network traffic and storage usage for lower costs. Every backup completes at the speed of an incremental but is stored as a synthetic full backup, which makes application recovery faster and more efficient.

    HPE RMC backup delivers up to 23x faster backups and up to 15x faster restores than traditional backup methods with 9x lower CPU consumption.1
