HP Reinvents Data Backup With Predictive, Social-Enabled Data Protection

Industry's First Adaptive Backup Offering Improves Resource Allocation, Increases Business Continuity and Lowers Costs

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- HP Autonomy (NYSE: HPQ) today announced several groundbreaking innovations to its lineup of Adaptive Backup and Recovery solutions, designed to meet the dynamic demands of the modern enterprise.

The three new solutions -- a unique predictive analytics application called HP Backup Navigator, a new HP Data Protector Management Pack and breakthrough performance updates to HP Data Protector 9.0 -- deliver insights that enable IT administrators to optimize the allocation of backup resources, resulting in reduced errors, recovery time and overall costs, and greatly improved business continuity.

"The predictive analytics capability in HP Backup Navigator gives us the ability to easily perform capacity planning and improve device utilization in our HP Data Protector environment," said Ryan C. Burgess, manager, Information Technology Services, BlueShore Financial. "This enables us to take the guesswork out of the planning process and significantly reduce operational cost."

Today's data centers are under siege. With unprecedented data volumes, diverse data formats, mobile workforces, and increasing adoption of cloud and virtualization, yesterday's backup and recovery models have been rendered obsolete. It is simply becoming too costly, ineffective and risky to rely on static legacy systems to protect an organization's vital enterprise information.

HP Autonomy, the industry leader in data protection with more than 60,000 customers, is pursuing a new and divergent path to bring the backup industry into the modern era. Based on the premise that backup should be adaptive, dynamic and self-aware, HP Autonomy Adaptive Backup and Recovery solutions empower organizations to overcome complexity with simple, intuitive, collaborative and real-time data protection.

HP Backup Navigator -- connect, collaborate and share analytical insights
HP Backup Navigator is the first data protection tool based on in-depth operational analytics that allow for effective navigation of an organization's backup landscape. Key features include:

  • Dynamic, interactive "drill down" graphical dashboard powered by real-time operational analytics deliver actionable insight to historical, current and future performance.
  • Collaborative, enhanced social media capabilities and automated report creation and sharing allows different teams of data center administrators within an organization to automatically share their backup policies and analytics dashboards. Other team members can then respond by marking as a favorite or sharing other related dashboards and reports.
  • Real-time, predictive analytics enable businesses to anticipate issues.
  • Extensive backward compatibility for previous versions of HP Data Protector means this tool can be immediately leveraged across the HP Data Protector global customer base.

HP Data Protector 9.0 -- a new class of data protection for the enterprise
HP Data Protector 9.0 offers enhancements that build upon HP's flagship adaptive, self-aware backup and recovery solution to:

  • Support the integration with HP Storage and the next-generation federated deduplication capabilities of HP StoreOnce Backup Systems.
  • Offer rapid recovery of VMware vSphere virtual disks through the new SmartCache feature, saving time and resources and improving administration agility.
  • Secure backup workloads in dynamic environments through encryption, protecting deduped data in flight and at rest.
  • Support EMC's family of storage offerings with native support for EMC Data Domain Boost.

HP Data Protector Management Pack -- active alerting and event management
HP Data Protector Management Pack with plug-in support for Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager enables organizations to centrally monitor and report on the health, performance and availability of the entire HP Data Protector environment. This product enables IT administrators to:

  • Perform discovery and topology presentation of the entire HP Data Protector infrastructure.
  • Visually check the status of all the clients and devices within the environment.
  • Get alerts and notifications and proactively take actions to resolve issues in the backup environment.

"Traditional approaches to data protection are no longer a fit for today's data centers," said David Jones, general manager, Enterprise Data Protection, HP Autonomy. "HP Autonomy is reinventing the data protection market by putting to work our strengths -- including deep analytics, collaboration, enterprise, cloud and mobility capabilities -- resulting in a backup offering that transforms the data center from a reactive to a proactive operation."

Availability

  • HP Backup Navigator and HP Data Protector Management Pack are available now.
  • HP Data Protector 9.0 is expected to be available next month.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
