HP simplifies disaster recovery

HP has launched a disk-based backup and recovery system it claims makes data protection and disaster recovery simple, reliable and affordable.

HP has launched a disk-based backup and recovery system it claims makes data protection and disaster recovery simple, reliable and affordable.

Restoring lost or corrupted files is said to be easier with a new HP back-up system because back-up data is stored online, where it can be restored in minutes instead of hours.

HP StorageWorks D2D backup system, designed for small to medium businesses (SMB) is at least 50% less expensive than competing systems'.

The new system automates and centralises backup to provide reliable data protection for up to four servers in a single, secure, self-managing device. It integrates into existing network-based IT environments. Daily backups are fully automatic.

Improved data availability and recovery is the No. 1 SMB storage management challenge, according to IDC research.

Consolidating backups onto a single disk-based system eliminates the need for multiple direct-attached backup devices and the associated management overhead. Also, browser-based management lets users monitor their HP D2D Backup System from anywhere on the network, at any time.

"The HP StorageWorks D2D backup virtually eliminates the main causes of failed backups and slow restores to help protect our customers' most valuable asset - their data," said Ashraf Helmy, marketing manager, StorageWorks, HP Middle East.

"Like our HP StorageWorks all-in-one, we designed it with the SMB in mind to deliver the most simplicity, reliability and affordability in one intuitive, integrated package."
