As the engine of digital transformation, data is an organization’s most valuable currency. The ability to gain actionable insights and unlock the economic value of data is critical for driving business outcomes. However, managing and protecting that data is increasingly challenging. Exploding data growth, demanding service level agreement (SLA) requirements, and an evolving threat landscape are putting pressure on IT to embrace an intelligent storage approach to protecting applications across their private and public cloud estate.
“Businesses need a built-for-cloud approach to data protection and copy data management on premises and in the cloud for simple and efficient data mobility,” said Patrick Osborne, Vice President of Secondary Storage and Big Data product management, HPE. “The solutions and services announced today enable HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage customers to effortlessly orchestrate intelligent, multi-tiered data protection from on premises arrays to the public cloud – driven by policy and business need.”
Next-Generation HPE StoreOnce Optimizes Cloud Investment
An increasing number of organizations are now deploying a cloud-first strategy, mandating that their IT functions are built for cloud. HPE StoreOnce systems deliver simple, cost-efficient and secure backup to the cloud. As a result, customers can leverage the benefits of the cloud for long-term retention of backup data to help with regulatory or governance compliance or disaster recovery, while continuing to use on-premises performance-optimized StoreOnce systems for short-term operational recovery, enabling fast restore.
“The significant performance, capacity and manageability improvements offered by the next generation HPE StoreOnce lets us and our customers protect more data, faster, and for less,” said Sebastian Koehler, Solution Architect, GODYO Enterprise Computing AG. “The new HPE StoreOnce systems enable simpler and more rapid provisioning of new data protection storage, while the introduction of the larger HPE StoreOnce VSA along with the new flexible License Server is game changing for the quick deployment and re-deployment of HPE StoreOnce as a virtual appliance. All of this coupled with the proven inbuilt performance and efficiency of HPE StoreOnce Catalyst and replication provides customers with the capabilities they need out of the box for fast, reliable operational recovery.”
Next-generation HPE StoreOnce with Cloud Bank Storage dramatically improves the performance and agility of hybrid cloud data protection for environments including Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure by copying only unique data to the cloud, and stores encrypted, self-describing backup data for simple cloud disaster recovery. The next generation HPE StoreOnce platform reduces operational time by as much as 95%4 with a unified view of multiple HPE StoreOnce systems - both on premises and in the cloud.
"Cloud is a strategic priority in every organization today, and data protection is a popular use case,” said Tad Brockway, General Manager, Azure Storage at Microsoft Corp. “Next generation HPE StoreOnce with Cloud Bank Storage delivers simple, efficient and secure backup to the cloud. With the combination of Microsoft Azure and HPE StoreOnce, enterprises are able to move data faster and reduce downtime risk.”
RMC 6.0 for HPE Nimble Storage Delivers Cloud Agility at Flash Speed
Businesses are looking to leverage their backup data for more than just recovery. They are evolving their data protection process from being a reactive insurance policy to a proactive, value-added service for their organization.
HPE RMC delivers a simpler, centralized copy data management solution currently available for HPE 3PAR and now extended to HPE Nimble Storage. Using RMC 6.0 for direct backup from HPE storage arrays to HPE StoreOnce now delivers approximately 23X5 faster backup and about 15X6 faster recovery with less cost and complexity than competing solutions.
“Our research shows that fragmented, inefficient secondary data copy sprawl is putting pressure on costs and intensifying risk for many organizations,” said Christophe Bertrand, senior data protection analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “HPE storage-integrated copy data management with RMC 6.0 helps solve the challenges of copy data proliferation and manual data provisioning with fast, automated and zero-impact data access for recovery, archive, analytics and application development.”
Commvault Integration Extends the HPE StoreOnce Software Partner Ecosystem
New Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery software integration with HPE StoreOnce provides seamless and efficient backup to the cloud. Commvault customers can now benefit from up to 20x7 lower cloud storage costs, faster backups, and approximately 95%8 less backup storage and network traffic.
“This announcement further strengthens the partnership between Commvault and HPE, providing our mutual customers with a simple, efficient, fast and secure hybrid cloud data protection solution,” said Owen Taraniuk, Head of Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development at Commvault. “The combination of Commvault software and the next generation HPE StoreOnce platform seamlessly extends the datacenter to the cloud, enabling organizations to move data where it needs to be.”
Optimized Cloud Economics
HPE customers can now gain from applying cloud economics to the security and control of their on-premises infrastructure with a consumption-based IT billing model that aligns and grows with business needs. The consumption-based IT models and HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity planning strategies with HPE GreenLake Backup will be enhanced with the next-generation HPE StoreOnce and the new Commvault integration, delivering 30% savings with HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity9. The complete backup solution is designed, operated and implemented by HPE Pointnext.
Additionally, advisory and professional services for Microsoft Azure Hybrid Cloud offered by HPE Pointnext help customers define and implement a hybrid IT backup strategy that delivers end-to-end support for the customer environment from primary storage to HPE StoreOnce and Microsoft Azure.
