How next-gen HPE StoreOnce simplifies hybrid cloud data protection


HPE StoreOnce hybrid cloud data protection_blog.jpgHPE just announced the HPE StoreOnce next-generation backup appliance portfolio. Learn how the new platform can transform the simplicity, performance, and agility of your hybrid cloud data protection.

HPE is transforming the simplicity, performance, and agility of hybrid cloud data protection with the announcement of the HPE StoreOnce next-generation backup appliance platform. The next generation of HPE StoreOnce provides a built-for-cloud data protection platform that can scale from small remote offices to the largest enterprises and service providers.

Calvin’s recent blog hits the highlights of our data protection for hybrid cloud announcement. Here, let’s take a closer look at how HPE StoreOnce next-generation can help you reduce cost, risk, and complexity with flash-speed protection in your data center—while delivering low-cost archive and disaster recovery in the cloud.

First, watch the next generation of HPE StoreOnce in action.

Data is your most valuable currency

We’re living in an era of digital transformation. Data is the engine of digital transformation and is an organization’s most valuable currency. Companies depend on data to be instantly available and secure—wherever and whenever they need it. And in an always-on world, the financial and business impact of unplanned downtime and data loss can prove catastrophic.

Data protection 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 companies transform to hybrid cloud, protecting applications across the data center and the cloud can prove increasingly complex.

It’s time for a more intelligent approach.  

Next-generation HPE StoreOnce

The new next-generation HPE StoreOnce platform provides intelligent data protection for an all-flash, hybrid IT world. It simplifies operations, delivers on SLAs, and protects data your way with flash-speed protection in the data center and low-cost archive and disaster recovery in the cloud. Here’s how you realize the benefits:

  • Help optimize cloud investment: HPE StoreOnce with HPE Cloud Bank Storage delivers simple, efficient, and reliable backup to the cloud. It lets you seamlessly cloud-enable your storage, backup, and enterprise apps, as well as natively integrate your choice of cloud service provider without the need for a separate gateway or virtual appliance. You can reduce the time, cost, and network bandwidth for your cloud storage by 20x[i] with highly efficient deduplicated data transfer as well as store encrypted, self-describing backup data for simple cloud disaster recovery.
