hp automated backup solutions

• modular • manageable • compatible • hp leadership

does any of these statements characterise your organisation?
• • • • • • do your staff need high-availability access to data? is your data volume growing exponentially? are your storage resources increasing? are you continuously updating your disaster recovery files? do you experience ever decreasing backup windows? is your company facing cost constraints?

If so, then automate your backup.

Our IT staff is constantly pulled in a million directions. We don’t have time to spend manually loading tapes or worrying about whether a restore is going to work. With HP Surestore automated hardware, backup operations can be customised and defined once and then executed as scheduled in the background, requiring no operator involvement. The risk of manual failures and administrative overhead is reduced, allowing IT staff to be deployed more effectively.
Ivan Moore System Administrative Technician Celestica, Fort Collins, Colorado


what is automated backup?
Automated backup occurs when tape drive(s) and robotics that are enclosed in a single enclosure can be commanded to automatically place media from a storage slot into the drive(s) located within

the same enclosure. The enclosure can be classed as a library or an autoloader.

• one tape drive • access to a small number of tapes • generally sequential operation • moderate cost

• one to 20 tape drives • access to a large number of tapes (18 to 100s) • higher throughput • higher fault tolerance (multiple drives, redundant components) • inventory capable
