HP Labs develop new technology: HP StoreOnce deduplication
Our colleagues over in the StorageWorks Division made an announcement June 21 at TechForum in Las Vegas, NV. I was excited about the news of HP StoreOnce deduplication software. It represents work done by HP Storage and Information Management Platforms Lab as part of its focus to research and build platforms and services to create, host, manage and provide the next generation of storage and information sources and services.
HP StoreOnce deduplication uses new techniques. Up until now, data movement between systems usually requires processing through different tools. HP StoreOnce software will allow end-to-end deduplication capabilities across the converged infrastructure—from backup to primary scale-out. And HP Data Protector software is an important part of this announcement. HP StoreOnce will be integrated into the next major release of Data Protector. (To find out what industry analyst Enterprise Strategy Group discovered about current Data Protector target-based deduplication solutions, and for a copy of their report, visit the HPS&S Data Protection Community.)
I also encourage you to visit the Around the Storage Block blog to learn more about this announcement from HP. Pay particular attention to the link to the video blog. The vlog features Tom Joyce, VP Marketing, Strategy and Operations for HP StorageWorks, who explains HP StoreOnce in more detail with visuals.
I’ll share more about this new strategy in future blog posts—including what it means for HP Data Protector.
So stay tuned.
