HPE RMC 6.2: Storage integrated data protection, copy data management and data mobility

StorageExperts

HPE RMC-blog.jpgCentralized data protection, copy data management and data mobility for HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage is now available with RMC 6.2.  Let’s take a closer look.

This month we announced HPE RMC 6.2, a centralized data protection, copy data management and data mobility software solution for HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage arrays that helps minimize secondary data sprawl across secondary use cases.* The new release of RMC consolidates secondary data management functions into a single, end-to-end integrated offering, delivering flash speed application protection, test & dev, analytics, reporting and data mobility that is built for cloud with less cost and complexity.

Let’s take a closer look at the challenges and pain points that this solution is designed to address and overview the key features, benefits and value that RMC 6.2 can deliver HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage customers.

Data is your most valuable currency

We’re living in an intelligence era where data is the engine of your intelligent enterprise and is your most valuable currency. Your organization depends on data to be instantly available and secure—wherever and whenever you need it. And in an always-on always connected intelligent enterprise, the financial and business impact of unplanned downtime and data loss can prove catastrophic.

Protecting data is increasingly challenging

As the value and business-criticality of data increases, the challenges of protecting data are tougher than ever. Exploding data growth and copy data sprawl, demanding service-level requirements, and an evolving threat and compliance landscape are putting pressure on costs and intensifying risk. What’s more, as you transform to hybrid cloud, protecting applications across your data center and the cloud can prove increasingly complex.

It’s time for a more intelligent approach.

HPE RMC 6.2

HPE RMC 6.2 software is a centralized data protection copy data management and data mobility software solution for HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage arrays that helps minimize secondary data sprawl across secondary use cases such as:

  • Multi-tier data protection across primary, secondary and cloud tiers
  • Space-efficient Test & Dev
  • Analytics and reporting from clones without affecting primary workloads
  • Cross array data mobility

RMC consolidates of all these secondary data management functions into a single, end to end integrated offering, delivering flash speed application protection, copy data management and data mobility that is built for cloud with less cost and complexity.

RMC reduces cost and complexity by enabling application integrated protection for VMware®, Microsoft® SQL, Microsoft Exchange, Oracle, SAP HANA® and any Microsoft VSS-enabled application running as a virtual machine. VM and database admins can now manage application consistent snapshots, backup, and recovery as well as test/dev—seamlessly and directly from within their preferred native interfaces. You can also integrate intelligent protection for their business apps with a full set of REST APIs

RMC software is included as standard with HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble primary storage.  By providing it free with HPE primary storage we can ensure that all our storage customers can take advantage of this powerful and flexible solution.

HPE RMC 6.2 has set a new bar for Multi-tiered 3-2-1 data protection with its unique ability to orchestrate copies of data seamlessly across multiple HPE Storage systems and fully utilizing on-premises secondary storage and cloud tiers to provide a more holistic and cost-effective solution. This covers the complete continuum of data protection with high availability, replication, snapshots, backup and archive, enabling customer to comply with 3-2-1 data protection rule (3 copies of data stored on two different types of media and with one copy off site)

Automated self-service with intelligent, policy-based copy automation

With HPE RMC you can create and automate centralized backup, replication and archival SLA policies with just a few clicks; this lets you orchestrate  multi-tiered data protection driven by policy and business need. 

Put your backup data to work

RMC 6.2 solves the challenges of copy data proliferation and manual data provisioning with fast, automated and zero-impact/copy and clones that can be used for multi-tier data protection, space efficient test/dev, analytics and reporting – all managed via one single pane of glass

Flash speed with minimal app impact

RMC lets you predictably deliver on your backup and recovery SLAs with a data movement architecture optimized for ultimate efficiency (including tight data source integration, direct data paths and intelligent source side deduplication).

Direct backup from your HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage array to StoreOnce with HPE RMC bypasses traditional server backup techniques, delivering 23x faster backup and 15x faster recovery for your enterprise apps—with less cost and complexity and minimal impact on your production environment. 

Eliminates cost and complexity of traditional backup

RMC reduces cost and complexity by streamlining and simplifying your backup architecture by eliminating extraneous infrastructure. It requires fewer server, storage, and network resources and reduces the number of systems you need to purchase and maintain for data protection. And as we’ve seen HPE RMC is included for free with any HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR or HPE Nimble array.

Simple cloud backup for long term retention, archive and disaster recovery 

RMC 6.2 seamlessly cloud-enables your apps and natively integrates your cloud of your choice. It optimizes your cloud investment, copying only unique data to the cloud for 20x lower cloud storage cost. And it enables secure cloud backup and disaster recovery—with encrypted, self-describing backup data.

Simplifying data mobility between HPE 3PAR, HPE Primera and HPE Nimble

RMC 6.2 also includes a new Peer Copy feature which enables asynchronous periodic bi-directional replication between two or more homogeneous or heterogeneous storage systems. Peer Copy supports data replication across HPE Primera, HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage systems—eliminating the need to use host specific or hypervisor specific tools or expensive network-based appliances. Peer Copy allows for one-to-many, many-to-one, and multihop topologies, managed from within the RMC GUI.
