HP has introduced a disc-based back-up and recovery system that makes data protection and disaster recovery “simple, reliable and affordable” for SMEs.
Designed expressly for the business continuity and IT needs of SMEs, the new HP StorageWorks D2D Backup System automates and centralises backup to provide reliable data protection for up to four servers in a single, secure, self-managing device.
The HP D2D Backup System integrates into existing network-based IT environments and can be configured and managed in three intuitive steps, said HP.
Daily back-ups also become fully automatic, reducing the risk of human error and hardware problems, HP said. Restoring lost or corrupted files also becomes easier because backup data is stored online, where it can be restored in minutes instead of hours.
HP claimed the system is also at least 50% less expensive than competing systems’ list prices.
According to a recent IDC analyst report, more than 50% of SMEs cited improved data availability and recovery as their number one storage management challenge.
In addition, data protection and disaster recovery were the top SME drivers for planned spending on additional storage capacity over the next year, said IDC.
