HP Updates Data Protection Portfolio For SMBs

As part of HP's business protection portfolio, SMBs now can choose a new virtual library system and tape library as well as install improved software for HP ProLiant servers.

The portfolio is part of the HP Simply StorageWorks program, which includes products, software, and services that help SMBs prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from unexpected events that can impact their operations.

The HP StorageWorks Virtual Library System 1002i delivers unattended backup and improved restore performance by helping businesses protect their data when offsite storage of data tapes is not required. The VLS1002i stores up to 1.5 terabytes (TB) of data, or up to 3 TB when using the integrated data compression feature, which enables small businesses to restore files in minutes rather than hours.

The HP ProLiant Data Protection Storage Server family now has an option for StorageWorks Data Protector Express. The software now offers online backup of the Data Protection Storage Server replicas and system as well as an automated disaster recovery capability.

In addition, Data Protector Express is integrated with the HP tape drive's One-Button Disaster Recovery utility, which allows small businesses to restore a server's operating system, software applications, and data by pressing a button and following on-screen instructions.

All HP tape drives and tape autoloaders will ship with Data Protector Express Single Server Edition software.
