HPE enhances data protection for hybrid cloud environments

HPE comes with extensions to the StorOnce and Nimble portfolios to further optimize data protection and copy data management for hybrid cloud environments. Also ties with supplier Commvault will be further strengthened.

The functionality now added by the vendor to both storage application portfolios should enable end users to scale up their operational efficiency for hybrid cloud storage. In addition, the solutions should provide faster backup to the cloud and ultimately deliver cost savings by a factor of 20.

Improvements for HPE StorOnce

The now added functionality for HPE StoreOnce backup portfolio should, according to the vendor, improve end-user data protection in terms of flash speed, cost-efficient archiving and cloud-based disaster recovery, such as with simple and faster provisioning of new data protection storage. Furthermore, the now presented HPE StoreOnce USA with the new flexible License Server ensures fast implementation and re-implementation of HPE StoreOnce as a virtual application. In addition, the HPE StoreOnce Catalyst’s standard built-in performance and efficiency, combined with replication functionality, should allow all backup applications to have fast and naturally reliable recovery features for recovering any lost data.

Together with the Cloud Bank Storage solution, the StorOnce portfolio now also offers better data protection performance and flexibility in hybrid cloud environments such as Amazon S3 and Azure, says HPE. The application copies only unique data to the public cloud environments used, encrypts the backup data and generates descriptive tags for quick and easy recovery from disaster recovery via the cloud.

Upgrade Nimble portfolio

HPE’s Nimble portfolio has also been upgraded. This portfolio of storage arrays now includes the Recorvery Manager Central (RMC) version 6.0 software. This software was already standard available for HPE’s 3PAR portfolio, so it shouldn’t contain any surprises.

The software simplifies data protection and copy data management. RMC 6.0 provides direct backup of the storage arrays to HPE StoreOnce. In addition, it offers cloud-based flexibility at flash speed. According to the supplier’s data, the speed that can be achieved with this is up to 23 times for backup and up to 15 times for the recovery of data. All this in turn leads to lower costs and less complexity, HPE claims.

Cooperation with Commvault

The cooperation with Commvault has also been extended. We recently reported on the collaboration for HPE StoreOnce and at the beginning of this year on the applications for HPE GreenLake Backup.

Prices and availability

Finally, of course, the costs and availability. HPE StoreOnce is available immediately from $4,800 for a HPE StoreOnce virtual storage appliance. Not an average solution, then. The RMC 6.0 software for the Nimble will be launched in December and will then be delivered as standard with every HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble storage array.
