    HP Tech Cast #7: LTO-6 – Tape Storage is NOT Dead

    HP Tech Cast #7: LTO-6 – Tape Storage is NOT Dead

    Last month HP released their Linear Tape Open 6 (LTO-6) tape backup standard. With tapes that can hold up to 6.25 Terrabytes and rack systems that hold up to 44.4 Petabytes, tape shows not only its relevance in Enterprise networks but also how it can stack up to a storage method.

    Calvin Zito joins me with ESG’s Jason Buffington and and HP’s Bob Conway of the Tape Future product marketing. In this video, Jason gives a presentation on data protection trends and topics. We then get into LTO 6 and how you might want to think of a Disk to Tape to Cloud structure.

    Post – HP Discover Comments from Bloggers

    Post – HP Discover Comments from Bloggers

    Bloggers Justin Vashisht, Chris Wahl and John Obeto join Calvin Zito and myself on this episode of HP Tech Cast. The topic this week: What the bloggers saw at HP Discover. More important, is HP going in the right direction.

    There were many different things to see at HP Discover. From the expo floor, to the keynotes, and the Blogger lounge that HP puts together (this year with an Espresso machine). We talk about what HP has been doing in the last year, and how the Enterprise division has been really stepping forward to lead the way.

    The guys also talk about how they got to see some behind the scenes action for a bit. What it takes for this event to happen.

    A great conversation with some of the bloggers that write about the Enterprise division.

    HP Discover Announcement StoreOnce, Data Protector 7, VC Direct Attach

    HP Discover Announcement StoreOnce, Data Protector 7, VC Direct Attach

    On this episode of HP Tech Cast, Brad Parks, Gagan Bhatia and Jay Levins join myself, Calvin Zito, and a host of bloggers that included Ilja Coolen, Howard Marks, Herman Montano, and others. They talked about the announcement of the new deduplication solutions for the HP StoreOnce Backup family at HP Discover. This is a way to enable organizations to manage risk as they deal with explosive data growth by protecting more data in less time.

    The new solutions are the first to deliver backup performance of up to 100 terabytes (TB) per hour and data recovery of up to 40 TB per hour in a single system. This is up to 3-5 times faster than the closest competitor. The group talks about how this becomes part of the infrastructure, as well as the reduced recovery time, increased productivity – using HP Data Protector 7 software powered by the

    Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), HP Virtual Connect and direct-attach FC for 3PAR with Flat SAN, and higher reliability and improved network performance using HP Automated Network Managerment 9.2.

    The bloggers ask many questions about these new advancements, including how the 100 TB backup will perform,if live vault cloud data is de-duplicated by StoreOnce, if 3-PAR supports NPIV, and more.

    We have provided an audio AND video version of this Tech Cast.
