HPE Adds New Hybrid Cloud Data Protection to Its Intelligent Storage Portfolio

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched new hybrid cloud data protection and copy data management solutions for its intelligent storage portfolio. These new capabilities would allow customers to significantly increase operational efficiency while enabling faster back up to the cloud and reducing cloud storage costs.


“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.”

The new storage solutions announced by HPE include:

  • ‘Next generation’ of HPE StoreOnce backup appliance portfolio – increases business continuity with “flash speed data protection in the data center and cost-efficient” archive and disaster recovery (DR) in the cloud
  • HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) 6.0 – simplifies data protection and copy data management for HPE Nimble Storage
  • HPE StoreOnce with Commvault software integration – reduces the storage footprint and network bandwidth requirements to the cloud
  • HPE GreenLake Backup – is enhanced with ‘next-generation’ HPE StoreOnce and Commvault software integration, offering consumption-based IT models while reducing costs

“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 would significantly improve 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 store encrypted, self-describing backup data for simple cloud disaster recovery (DR). The next generation HPE StoreOnce platform would reduce operational time by as much as 95% 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

HPE RMC would deliver 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 would now deliver significantly faster backup and faster recovery with less cost and complexity.

“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

New Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery software integration with HPE StoreOnce would provides seamless and efficient backup to the cloud. Commvault customers can now benefit from lower cloud storage costs, faster backups, and less backup storage and network traffic, according to HPE.

“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 would also 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 would be enhanced with the next-generation HPE StoreOnce and the new Commvault integration, delivering significant savings with HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity. 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.
