Also new from HP Tuesday is Data Protector 8, a new version of HP's data backup and recovery software.

Data Protector 8 includes bandwidth throttling and support for the HP StoreOnce VSA, scalability to up to 1 trillion file names, and automatic failover, HP's Scott said.

He also introduced the HP StoreEver MSL 6480 tape library, a new midrange library featuring up to 42 LTO tape drives and up to 560 slots, with a capacity of up to 81 TB per 1U of rack space.

The MSL 6480 also offers up to 60.4 TB-per-hour throughput, and includes the Linear Tape File System, or LTFS, which allows files on tape to be accessed as if they were stored on disk, he said.

"Tape is not dead," he said. "Tape continues to be an architecture that provides the best reliability and resilience."
