Autonomy, a Hewlett-Packard company, said its HP Data Protector 7 has been enhanced to provide integrated security for VMware’s cloud. It is the first and only enterprise backup and recovery application that delivers fully automated, policy-based protection for the VMware vCloud Director environment, the company said.
HP Data Protector 7 provides policy-based data protection for an array of configurations within a virtual data center. Business critical backup policies are automatically applied to new virtual machines within a virtual data center. It includes the ability to deduplicate data anywhere -- at the application source, backup server or target appliance -- and centrally manage the deduplicated data movement across the enterprise for disaster recovery.
