3PAR Flash-Integrated Data Protection: Enabling Self-Service Data Protection for Your Applications


HPE 3PAR StoreServ All-Flash arrays are leading the trend towards self-service data protection with HPE 3PAR Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software.  Let’s take a closer look at how 3PAR Flash-Integrated Data Protection is meeting the demands of application owners for  a quick and easy way to protect their applications.

Power to the people!
A confluence of factors—including technological advances and the emergence of new business models— are driving a growing global trend for technology-enabled self-service that empowers people to do things on their own. 

3PAR Flash-Integrated BLOG.jpgSelf-service applications are everywhere. Shoppers now pay for their goods using a self-service check-out, customers check their bank balances and transfer funds on their mobile phone, while travelers print out their own train and airplane tickets at kiosks.  And an increasing number of internal corporate functions such as human resources and technical support now include automated interfaces for employees. 

A broad set of benefits accrue to those forward thinking companies that embrace self-service technology.  Providing customers and employees with direct control and visibility of their data enables a superior end user experience while lowering costs and improving efficiency.

The evolution towards self-service is one of the disruptive waves that is engulfing the data protection market. Many IT organizations are considering or actively moving to a modern infrastructure-centric model, where data management and protection are tightly integrated with underlying infrastructure and applications.

This application-aware, flash-integrated data protection architecture is delivered by integrating primary flash storage and backup appliances with a simple software management solution, common data services and automation between devices enabling seamless data movement.

Data protection thus becomes a function of primary storage, eliminating the need for additional backup infrastructures such as media servers. Application owners can now control their application’s data protection directly from within their preferred native interfaces. This makes protecting data less intrusive on application processing, simpler and less expensive to manage and faster to complete.

Enabling self-service availability and backup with 3PAR Flash-Integrated Data Protection
HPE 3PAR StoreServ All-Flash arrays are leading the way in the evolution of self-service data protection with HPE 3PAR Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software. RMC integrates HPE 3PAR StoreServ all-flash arrays with HPE StoreOnce backup protection to provide a converged availability and backup service optimized for flash environments.

It augments traditional backup approaches, combining the performance of snapshots with the protection of backups.

As a result, RMC delivers 23x faster backup with no backup impact on the application serve,r and lowers cost and complexity by eliminating the need for a backup application.

Watch this 3PAR Flash-Integrated Data Protection Video for an overview of the value and benefits of RMC 3.0.  

Delivering radical simplicity with application-managed availability and protection
RMC allows application integrated protection for VMware, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, 3PAR File Persona and any Microsoft VSS-enabled application running as a virtual machine. VM, Oracle and SQL database admins can manage application consistent snapshots, backup, and recovery seamlessly and directly from within their preferred native interfaces.

Application owners are not typically storage experts so RMC has been designed to simplify operations and reduce time spent on availability, backup and recovery. It is quick and easy to deploy with a fast, intuitive and streamlined installation process. And with RMC for VMware you can monitor and manage application consistent snapshots, backup, and recovery seamlessly and directly from within your familiar VMware vCenter user interface. Right click on your VM. Choose backup. It’s that easy.

Check out the  RMC Installation Wizard demo and the RMC for VMware in action video to see how 3PAR Flash Integrated Data Protection with RMC is simple enough for an IT generalist to use.

Self-service is  the right choice for enterprise workloads

So if you're an application owner looking for fast, simple and affordable availability and protection for your VMware, Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle database flash environment, look no further than 3PAR Flash-Integrated Data Protection with RMC.  It will give you the visibility and control you need, delivering application-aware, storage-integrated data protection that bypasses traditional backup server-based processes.
