HP Data Protector update offers integrated support for HP Helion OpenStack® and NetApp storage array family

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 23, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — HP Autonomy today announced that it has enriched its Adaptive Backup and Recovery solution offering with two core enhancements to address the demanding needs of the modern data center.

HP Data Protector now features integration with the HP Helion OpenStack®, an open and extensible cloud platform, and NetApp® storage arrays via a flexible and extensible snapshot integration framework. Together, these enhancements help organizations create and maintain agile IT infrastructures that can adapt to the dynamic nature of today’s always-on data centers.

Agile cloud backup integration with HP Helion OpenStack
Virtualization and cloud services are increasingly considered a best-practice for managing rapidly-growing volume of business data. HP Data Protector’s native integration with HP Helion OpenStack® provides organizations with secure off-site data backup and restore capabilities for VMware workloads and automatic cloud backup replication.

Key feature enhancements include:

  • Automatic, secure off-site copy to cloud: Protects essential business data loss from disaster through automatic and secure off-site copy to HP Helion Public Cloud. All data transmitted to the cloud is securely encrypted and compressed before and after being stored.
  • Optimized backup and recovery process: A tiered recovery architecture enables administrators to determine the most appropriate and economical storage tier option depending on data type, usage and service requirements.
  • End-to-end HP solution: Customers can take advantage of buying best-in-class backup solution stack that includes fully integrated infrastructure, software, services, and support – all from HP.

Advanced snapshot management for NetApp® storage
Many organizations today face a critical need for backup and recovery solutions capable of supporting a broad spectrum of storage and protection hardware components. To address this need for uncompromised heterogeneous vendor support, HP Data Protector is announcing comprehensive support for organizations who rely on NetApp storage arrays. This enhancement is powered by an extensible snapshot framework with several key capabilities:

  • Non-disruptive, hardware assisted backup: Delivers rapid, non-disruptive, and efficient storage-based snapshots of user and application data regardless of environment powered by HP Data Protector’s Zero Downtime Backup capability.
  • NetApp® storage device support: Creates, deletes, and manages of snapshots on NetApp® storage devices (physical and virtual) running Data ONTAP® or Clustered Data ONTAP®, specifically supporting backup of virtual machines running on VMware vSphere.

At the heart of HP’s Adaptive Backup and Recovery vision is a commitment to addressing the needs of the transforming style of IT,”  says David Jones, general manager, Enterprise Data Protection, HP Autonomy. “HP Data Protector is continuously advancing to accommodate the agility, scalability, and security needs of today’s data centers.”
