New hybrid cloud data protection and copy data management solutions were announced by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) this morning.

The new solutions are targeted for businesses needing a built-for-cloud approach to data protection and copy data management, according to Patrick Osborne, vice-president of secondary storage and big data product management for HPE.

“The solutions and services announced today enable HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage customers to effortlessly orchestrate intelligent, multi-tiered data protection from on premises arrays to the public cloud – driven by policy and business need,” Osborne said in a press release.

HPE says the next-generation HPE StoreOnce with Cloud Bank Storage improves the performance of hybrid cloud data protection living on Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure by copying only unique data to the cloud and storing encrypted, self-describing backup data for simple cloud disaster recovery. Additionally, HPE says it reduces operational time by as much as 95 per cent with a unified view of multiple HPE StoreOnce systems, either on premises or in the cloud.

HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) 6.0 received some enhancements as well, adding data protection and copy data management for HPE Nimble Storage, a capability already available for HPE 3PAR.

The latest announcement also includes HPE StoreOnce Backup integration with Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery software. According to HPE, Commvault customers can now significantly reduce their cloud storage costs and reduce backup storage and network traffic by 95 per cent.

“The combination of Commvault software and the next generation HPE StoreOnce platform seamlessly extends the datacenter to the cloud, enabling organizations to move data where it needs to be,” said Owen Taraniuk, head of worldwide partnerships and market development for Commvault.

HPE StoreOnce and the software integration with Commvault are available on HPE GreenLake Backup, HPE’s consumption-based IT model for backup solutions.
