New HP Data Protector Software Drives Down Information Management Costs
HP Data Protector has been enhanced to help customers address their main priorities in data security, regulatory compliance, consolidation and virtualization.
The new advancements to HP Data Protector, coupled with HP Software’s zero percent financing option, gives customers a flexible sourcing option to address their most critical pain points today, while preparing for success upon the return of the economy.
“We have been using HP Data Protector for many years to help us reduce costs and meet our compliance demands,” said Devin York, senior manager, financial systems, Continental Airlines. “We are thrilled with the new features in the enhanced HP Data Protector, and expect further results in terms of cost reduction and reduced business risk.”
HP Data Protector delivers new capabilities to support customers’ backup and recovery challenges, allowing them to:
• Decrease the risk of information loss with complete protection for VMware Infrastructure environments. HP Data Protector supports eight different methods of VMware Infrastructure protection including integration with the VMware Consolidated Backup framework for scalable, non-disruptive backup of virtual machines. This allows customers to choose specific recovery point/recovery time objectives for their information with one product and one user interface. As a result, backup administrators can focus on high-value responsibilities without specific expertise in VMware virtualization.
“HP Data Protector continues to be the perfect solution for us with new features we need today, such as integration for VMware Infrastructure and VMware Consolidated Backup, as well as capabilities that we will need in the future, like deduplication,” said Jim Thomas, director of information technology operations, Pella Corporation. “We expect to further lower our total cost of ownership with the new HP Data Protector.”
• Lower IT costs with the most flexible data reduction options on the market. The process of removing duplicate copies of information, referred to as deduplication-- continues to be a critical need for organizations. HP Data Protector offers flexible options for optimizing storage capacity, allowing customers to reduce their data footprint by choosing the data reduction and deduplication methods that best meet their needs.
• Reduce business risks associated with data security. HP Data Protector now offers centralized encryption key management to improve security.
• Deliver faster backup and recovery time to value. Organizations are still focused on solving basic backup challenges. HP Data Protection Services provide customers with upfront consulting on best practices to ensure improved information compliance, as well as rapid implementation of the software. In addition, customers can lower their storage optimization costs with these services.
“Right now organizations need new ways to find short-term cost reductions while laying the groundwork to grow stronger,” said Jonathan Martin, vice president and general manager, Information Management Software and Solutions, HP. “For our 22,000 customers around the world, HP Data Protector is the only solution that gives CIOs a cost-effective enterprise safety net for managing information, while at the same time addressing concerns around virtualization, data reduction and data security.”
HP today also introduced two new HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Arrays (EVA6400/8400) and the enhanced HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform (SVSP) that extend the value of HP Data Protector.
By providing seamless integration between the new HP EVA, HP SVSP and HP Data Protector, customers benefit from the strengths of both HP hardware and software for the complete solution for VMware Infrastructure data protection in the industry. Customers benefit from optimized backup of data replicated on virtual storage, with no impact to their production environments.
