HP commissioned Forrester Consulting in October 2013 to leverage existing Forrsights data and to survey IT hardware decision-makers in North America and Europe about their storage requirements for this Technology Adoption Profile.
In any storage system it is essential to ensure that the integrity of the data stored is maintained so data can be recovered exactly as it was written. HP StoreOnce appliances have been designed with the necessary technology that delivers this essential high degree of data protection. HP has unique technology that protects data throughout its lifecycle when stored on the HP StoreOnce appliance. This paper will discuss the methods used at various stages to provide this high degree of data integrity.
Deduplication is not new—and HP was certainly not the first to market it. Instead, by watching how deduplication was introduced and listening to the evolving demands of customers who struggle with storage and backup issues, HP built StoreOnce as a next-generation or “Dedupe 2.0” architecture that is available now. With its formidable enterprise experience, server and storage product lines, and broad partner ecosystem, HP intends to catch up with and, in fact, surpass the status quo to bring better deduplication at a lower cost.
This video (3:58 min) shows the typical journey that your data might take from its creation to its retirement. HP Experts discuss how various storage solutions are used to best handle, protect and retain that data regardless of how and where it is being used.
The deduplication is one of the fastest growing segments in storage. Accordingly, every vendor is telling their version of the deduplication story. With emerging technologies, it is difficult for IT managers to determine what the true IT benefits vs. marketing spin are. This brief document discusses several key areas of deduplication and uncovers six NetApp “challenges” customers should understand when evaluating HP StoreOnce Backup Systems and NetApp as their deduplication solution of choice.
A few years ago, two technologies emerged to dramatically improve the industry’s ability to protect data. The cost of disk drives came down, and deduplication technology was introduced. This breakthrough is sometimes referred to as Deduplication 1.0. Like any technology, you’d expect it to evolve over time. HP launched the HP StoreOnce deduplication technology roadmap in 2010 to do just that. The result? Deduplication 2.0 or what HP calls “Federated Deduplication”. This next generation deduplication addresses some of the issues inherent in existing deduplication solutions: performance, flexibility, and data management and not only that, when moving from your legacy storage backup systems, you can reduce the amount of your stored backup data by 95 percent or we’ll make up the difference with free disk capacity and support.
Make sense of modern storage technologies and architectures and how they might impact your business. HP helps you understand unstructured data, block and object storage, storage system architectures, and storage networking options. Discover how the right mix or technologies such as virtualization, file sharing, and deduplication can help control storage costs, protect your data from loss or corruption, and provide reliable access to critical business information for every authorized user. See how.
In these days of rampant data growth, a technology that can increase the effective capacity of a disk-based backup system by a ratio of up to 50:1 is big news. Data deduplication allows you to store up to 50 times more backup data into the same disk footprint — giving you a better chance of restoring your users' lost data from exactly the point they need it. This white paper explains how this innovative data deduplication solution works and also establishes how a 50:1 deduplication ratio may be achieved.
Data deduplication technology represents one of the most significant storage enhancements in recent years, promising to reshape future data protection and disaster recovery solutions. Data deduplication offers the ability to store more on a given amount of storage and replicate data using lower bandwidth links at a significantly reduced cost. This white paper explains how deduplication technologies work in practice, the pros and cons of each approach, and when to choose a particular type.
This document is intended for the use of Enterprise1 Storage Professionals, focused on Data Protection — Backup, Restore,DR and Archive operations — who are interested in evaluating the potential impact of de-duplication technologies to their business. There is much hyperbole associated with de-duplication. The purpose of this document is to help readers distill the essence from the hype, as the basis for sound decision-making.
New technologies exist that can radically slim down the physical storage requirements for secondary disk storage. Taneja Group refers to these technologies as Capacity Optimization (CO) technologies. In this technology brief, we will examine what IT teams should be looking for in a capacity optimization solution, and then share our perspective on the Diligent HyperFactor technology.
Data de-duplication has the power to revolutionize the data protection process by significantly reducing capacity requirements. Plagued by media hype and vendor FUD, this message can be easily lost. This paper serves as a primer on data de-duplication.
Juan Diego Catholic High School, with 500+ networked Apple Mac computers, needed to replace their poor performing tape backup system. They evaluated disk backup appliance solutions and select the Revinetix Sentio.
This ESG paper describes how through consistent individual product innovation and integration EMC backup and recovery solutions tackle the issues that prevent customers from transforming data protection.
In this brief, IDC discusses the challenges of using tape and the benefits of disk-based data protection solutions with data deduplication, especially if a business is experiencing unabated data growth, a lack of recovery performance, and increased costs associated with physical tape.
Data deduplication is not just altering how backup targets are used; it dramatically affects operating efficiencies, simplifies remote office data protection, and makes disaster recovery significantly more affordable and realistic. Read on.
In this brief, IDC discusses the challenges of using tape and the benefits of disk-based data protection solutions with data deduplication, especially if a business is experiencing unabated data growth, a lack of recovery performance. Find out more.
This white paper discusses how SMBs can effectively address their data protection challenges, implementing solutions that help store and protect their business-critical data as they cut costs and improve efficiency and reliability.
This solution brief explains the key business and technical differentiators that have made StoreOnce one of the leaders in the de-duplication market and helped organizations generate impressive total cost of ownership (TCO) metrics.

ESG Lab Validation Report - Reducing Storage Capacity and Costs without Compromise. Even with the plethora of storage efficiency technologies-such as deduplication and thin provisioning-available in the market today, users have not been able to stem the growth. This ESG Lab report looks at how IBM Real-time Compression can be used to reduce the cost of storing primary file data without impacting performance. The results of hands-on testing of IBM Real-time Compression Appliances performed by ESG at an IBM facility is used to demonstrate the value of non-disruptive deployment, loss-less capacity savings, real-time performance, and non-stop high availability.
