The company doubled the capacity of its StoreOnce dedupe appliance, giving it the ability to back up to 1.4 petabytes of data, compared to 700 TBs previously, Nunes said. The ingest rate, or the rate at which data can be backed up to the appliance, is now 4 TBs per hour, compared to 2.8 TBs per hour previously.
HP also introduced a new lower-end version of its LeftHand P4800 iSCSI appliance. That new version, the P4800 G2, can now be configured with only two controllers instead of the previous base configuration of four controllers, and can be configured with half the drives it came with before, giving customers a chance to acquire the appliance for about half the original starting price, Nunes said.
HP has also integrated VMware vStorage APIs to its LeftHand P4000 software for creating virtual storage appliances that can offload the overhead of running backup tasks from inside each virtual machine. The P4000 virtual appliances also now have a VMware vCenter plug-in for central management of storage tasks.
The company is also rolling out three new E5000 Messaging System appliances which combine two servers, storage capacity, and Windows and Exchange technology for quickly deploying Microsoft Exchange environments for customers.
