Lights out data protection for remote and branch offices with HP StoreOnce

  1. 1. Solution brief Lights-out data protection for remote and branch offices HP StoreOnce • Cost overheads—Adding in IT managers at remote sites, or having central IT staff work on remote office backup problems can prove to be a big resource sink. Transporting backup tapes or transmitting backup data over WAN links can add even more cost. HP StoreOnce can address the challenges facing remote backup complexities by consolidating management requirements while improving backup storage efficiencies across the IT ecosystem. If you are responsible for data protection for your enterprise and remote offices, you may be facing some of these challenges: • Data at risk—It is often left to non-IT staff to get the backup done, and to verify copies that exist in the data center at the headquarters in the event of data loss. As a result backup can be at best unreliable and at worst overlooked where no recovery option is available. • Downtime—And then there’s the loss in productivity caused by delays in restoring files at the remote office. Take a fresh approach Centralize backup and disaster recovery (DR) of multiple remote or branch offices to a single device at the data center.

  2. 2. Solution brief | HP StoreOnce Improve your remote and branch office data protection with a solution that: • Frees up local staff—HP has a way to automatically back up your data each and every day, and backups can happen just as they should. • Is easy to manage by data center IT staff—no need to have IT or non-IT people involved at the remote site. Backup from up to 384 remote offices can be configured to a single device at the data center, and managed centrally from a single pane of glass through your backup application. • Gives you assurance of reception of the data at the data center—HP has the industry’s only high availability, enterprise-scale backup appliance. • Is available in a range of options to suit your budget—HP StoreOnce allows you to dedupe nearly anywhere with the same algorithm in order to provide affordable software, and low cost appliance solutions to meet the needs of each branch office. • Delivers flexible configurations— regardless of the StoreOnce solution you choose, your deduped data can be seamlessly moved between remote offices, regional offices, data centers, and DR sites using one to many and cascaded copy technology. • Can grow with you—start small and scale out to meet data growth of up to 768 TB (raw capacity) or 512 TB (usable), with extended data protection of over 10 PB of data (at 20:1 dedupe ratio). • Offers superior value—HP StoreOnce can deliver a better price and performance advantage over the nearest competitor. Furthermore, HP only requires you to license replication on the target virtual tape library (VTL) or network-attached storage (NAS) appliances—not on the source appliances. The more remote locations you protect, the more money you save with HP’s approach. If that’s not enough, HP Replication Manager software is provided free of charge with the replication license. Benefits beyond remote office data protection • Reduces the cost of sending data offsite— send only deduplicated data over lower bandwidth links for a more network-efficient and lower cost way of implementing data replication for offsite disaster recovery or remote office data protection. • Keeps more data to hand for faster restore—retain up to 20X more backup data1 on the same disk and restore it more quickly with HP leading restore performance of up to 32 TB/hour when it’s needed. • Allows you to meet shrinking backup windows—fan in up to 384 parallel backup streams to a single device and back up with HP leading performance for up to 800 TB in an eight-hour window. Scaling to 768 TB (raw) or 512 TB (usable) capacity, you can keep pace with data growth while continuing to meet your backup window.
