HPE Adaptive Backup and Recovery Suite delivers secure approach to data protection, simplifying complexity and reducing costs
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Software today announced the latest version of its Adaptive Backup and Recovery (ABR) Suite with new features that help customers secure their digital environments, lower costs, and reduce downtime.
The data protection portfolio includes HPE Data Protector, HPE Backup Navigator, HPE Storage Optimizer, and VM Explorer to deliver a centralized, integrated and streamlined approach to backup and recovery that reduces complexity and automates processes. The new features include enhanced always-on security capabilities including rest APIs, advanced automation, and a more intuitive user interface.
Shifting data center requirements, sophisticated security attacks such as ransomware, and explosive data growth are forcing today’s IT organizations to rethink backup and recovery processes, strategies, and infrastructure. Organizations require software solutions that help them manage storage capacity, streamline backup functionalities, as well as automatically build-in disaster recovery in the instance of a breach. According to an IDC study, the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year, and the average cost of infrastructure failure per hour is $100,000.
“IT managers are under pressure to ensure more secure backup and faster recovery to reduce the downtime that leads to higher costs and risk,” said Stephen Spellicy, VP product management, Information Management & Governance, HPE Software. “The new innovations around the HPE Adaptive Backup and Recovery Suite enable IT staff to mitigate operational concerns, while providing streamlined processes, automation, and secure communications to better managing today’s digital environments.”
HPE Data Protector is an enterprise-class solution that securely centralizes and standardizes backup and recovery management across thousands of clients, repositories, platforms and locations. The flexible architecture provides scalability up to Petabytes of data and trillions of unique files across both physical and virtual environments. Data Protector ensures the backup environment is secure by providing centralized communication, simplifying configuration through port consolidation, and automating application and disaster recovery.
“The Data Protector 10 release has many enhancements we are excited about, but the most anticipated new feature for us, is the Secure Communications,” said Ken Pawlowski, Lead Architect, P&G. “The many security enhancements combined with reduced port usage and simplified communications will allow us to create an even more reliable and secure backup environment, with lower overhead.”
New features include:
“The addition of the new context menu in Data Protector 10 is very useful to analyze total clients, total data protected, licenses and devices configured etc. said Raja Samuel, Backup Consultant, Schlumberger “The many enhancements in Data Protector 10 will make it more productive and user-friendly for backup environments.”
