High performance, affordable data backup, and recovery are a challenges for most businesses. And it’s no different for the storage industry. That’s why HPE created the StoreOnce line of data backup solutions. The HPE StoreOnce family of products offers affordable and reliable data storage solutions that support virtualization, cloud computing, and other emerging technologies. Depending on the needs of your business, there are several different versions: stand-alone primary or secondary local backup, remote deduplication software, an all-in-one hybrid system for small businesses, or an enterprise software-defined storage solution with cloud integration. Regardless of which version you choose, you’ll get these benefits from using an HPE StoreOnce product:
High-Performance Data Backup
One of the most important features of any data backup system is its ability to make a copy of your most critical data quickly and automatically. When you select an HPE StoreOnce solution for your business, you get a system that can handle the volumes of data your organization generates and back it up quickly and efficiently. Most systems are capable of up to 200 MB/sec of bandwidth, which means they do not slow your business operations down with lengthy, time-consuming backup operations. This high-performance data backup capability is ideal for organizations that have a large amount of data and need to back it up quickly and efficiently.
Affordable Storage and Recovery
Depending on the size of your organization, data storage and recovery can be expensive propositions. An HPE StoreOnce solution can significantly reduce the cost of storage and recovery by taking advantage of HPE’s Virtualizer software and deduplication. HPE’s Virtualizer software combines multiple copies of data into one virtual copy. Deduplication is a technique that uses a mathematical algorithm to identify and store only the data that is unique to a given file. It removes the need for storing redundant data and thus drastically cuts down on the amount of physical storage space required.
In addition to deduplication, Virtualizer creates one virtual copy from several copies of the same data. That virtual copy is a single copy of your data that contains the combined contents of the other copies. With these features, HPE StoreOnce solutions can reduce the amount of storage space needed to store your data by as much as 95%.
Solid Security Measures
While data backup is an important aspect of any IT infrastructure, so is security. HPE StoreOnce products offer a variety of security features to protect your data from unauthorized access. HPE StoreOnce systems offer FIPS-140-2 compliant encryption to protect your data while it’s being transferred to the HPE StoreOnce system. These systems offer full disk encryption with keys managed by HPE Security Key Lifecycle Manager. Similarly, HPE StoreOnce systems offer authentication, authorization, and auditing features to provide a high level of protection for your data.
Flexibility in Where Data Is Stored and How It’s Accessed
With most data backup systems, you must choose between storing data on an internal storage device or an external hard drive. And you can only access that data when that device is attached to your computer. HPE StoreOnce systems give you additional flexibility by allowing you to store your data both on an internal storage device and an external hard drive. You can also choose to store your data in your internal network, in an external data center, or in the cloud. You have a variety of ways to access that data, including remote access, LAN access, and cloud-based access.
