SharePoint presents many unique backup issues that are not addressed by general disaster recovery solutions. This whitepaper introduces the broad topic of disaster recovery (DR) and how its principles can be specifically applied to the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013 platforms.
Backup and recovery is part of business and is essential to successful information management. Take fifteen minutes to find out how you can transform backup and recovery with disk-based, deduplication-optimized solutions from EMC.
As a long-time leader in data protection and backup solutions, and with innovations such as HP StoreOnce deduplication, HP TapeAssure and HP StoreOpen with LTFS, HP understands your immediate requirements and strategic business direction. With an integrated approach to comprehensive business protection, we can help you safeguard the integrity of your data and rapidly restore access whenever, wherever, and however you need it.
This paper is the outcome of a series of in-depth interviews ESG analysts performed with senior IT professionals in various industries. The objective was to determine the direct and indirect value customers derive from using HP backup, recovery, and archive solutions for information and more specifically their returns on: information—such as gaining more value from corporate data for better decisions; infrastructure—in the form of lowering costs and increasing infrastructure agility; and individuals—including time savings and reduced management complexity.
Although ESG continues to see the vast majority of IT organizations living within a disk-plus-tape world, no one can argue against the idea that the cloud is becoming a viable and attractive component of any data protection architecture. Modern disk and tape solutions have overwhelming benefits for ROI, but those benefits can often be expanded by leveraging the economics and additional agility capabilities of a cloud tier. And all of those tiers would benefit from smarter data protection and preservation mechanisms through the combination of both backups and archiving.
Although modern backup solutions can offer significant recovery agility, backup as an IT process is generally less than “enough” for the data protection goals that IT is being asked to deliver. As IT is embracing snapshots, replication, archiving, and availability mechanisms to enhance business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) preparedness, it is important to realize that there is a better way than piecemealing each component, and then wondering why CapEx and OpEx are so out of line.
In this report, we’ll examine first why HP StoreOnce and HP Data Protector products are truly game-changing on their own rights. Then, we will look at why they get even "better together” as a complete BURA solution that can be more flexibly deployed to meet backup challenges than any other solution in the market today.
When you have voluminous data sets growing at an unabated rate, in formats that are unique and complex, how do you address your backup and recovery needs? While relying on traditional backup and recovery solutions can complicate matters, a better approach is to use a solution that enables your IT organization to make decisions that are more intelligent by integrating predictive analysis and an adaptive approach to backup and recovery.
Looking beyond storage, HP Converged Infrastructure solutions enable your business to unleash the potential of your data center and reduce risk. Overcome IT sprawl with simplified management and implementation, enhanced performance, improved availability, and the economies of open standards and connectivity. For the business, this means faster time to revenue, increased agility, lesser risk, and lower cost of operation. HP delivers better value of convergence than other vendors do.
This video from Enterprise Strategy Group discusses findings of research they did with HP customers on how backup, recovery, and archiving solutions from HP, including the HP StoreOnce Backup product family, have helped them save time and money.

This white paper details the current challenges organizations face with respect to their evolving IT requirements, growing storage needs, and more extensive data protection requirements. It focuses on an expanding set of cloud-based storage offerings and the buying considerations of those who want to improve the data management metrics associated with data protection services such as backup and recovery. The paper also takes a closer look at the solutions offered by Riverbed Technology that allow organizations to integrate cloud-based storage withing solutions that address a growing set of data protection demands.
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.
CCU sought to encrypt its backup tapes for keeping customer data secure in transit and in storage at the offsite tape-vault vendor’s facility. As a financial institution, CCU was subject to stringent government regulations. With nearly 60 gigabytes of data to encrypt each night, CCU knew that a software solution was out of the question.
Given Payformance’s longstanding commitment to protecting the privacy of its clients’ information, the company has decided to investigate data encryption solutions for its primary hard drive storage and secondary backup tape storage. With its multi-vendor interoperability, NeoScale’s CryptoStor storage security appliances emerge as the obvious choice.
Chartered in 1973, San Francisco-based Spectrum Federal Credit Union serves over 12,000 members. When the issue arose on how to protect their members’ personal data residing on backup tapes, Spectrum FCU took no chances – they and their Techical Advisory Board made the decision to encrypt this important information with the help of NeoScale Systems, an undisputed leader in this emerging market.
The HSC network services group supports more than 2000 desktops, servers and backend systems such as e-mail, file, networking, application and storage services for general administration, dental and medical schools. HSC wanted to manage and reduce HIPAA compliance costs and processes associated with protecting PHI data within its storage infrastructure – a legacy SAN environment with evolving applications.
Qsent needed to shore up its disaster recovery strategy. This meant sending backup tapes – each with more than 2.5 terabytes of data – between data centers and storing them offsite. To keep all its data safe and secure, Qsent chose NeoScale’s CryptoStor wire-speed tape security appliance to encrypt and decrypt data.
With horror stories in the news every week about lost or stolen laptops and backup tapes, the senior management team at Oregon Community Credit Union knew they had to do everything within their powers to protect their critical data as it traveled offsite to a third-party tape vaulting vendor. They were tasked with finding an affordable solution that would strike a balance between security, ease of use, and scalability.
As more states pass regulations governing the security, confidentiality, and integrity of customer data, a leading national bank has recognized its need to ensure the safety and security of personal data for its thousands of customers. To ensure compliance and maintain the security of this information, the bank has deployed NeoScale’s CryptoStor Tape appliances to help accomplish its objectives.
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
This paper describes how organizations can use advanced, yet affordable WAN link optimization solutions to leverage the benefits of multiple sites, while maintaining high-performance and reliability for applications delivered across all sites. You will discover how to use WAN link controllers to manage, automatically load balance and failover of multiple WAN and ISP links to ensure site–to-site connectivity, and deliver applications reliably.
