IT Brobdingnagian HP has launched a disk-based backup and recovery system that it claims makes data protection and disaster recovery simple, reliable and affordable.

Designed for needs of small and medium businesses (SMBs), 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 system integrates into existing network-based IT environments and can be configured and managed in three intuitive steps. Daily backups become fully automatic, reducing the risk of human error and hardware problems.

Restoring lost or corrupted files also becomes easier because backup data is stored online, where it can be restored in minutes instead of hours.

The system is also at least 50 percent less expensive than competing systems’ list prices.

According to IDC, more than 50 percent of small and medium businesses cited improved data availability and recovery as their No. 1 storage management challenge. In addition, data protection and disaster recovery are the top SMB drivers for planned spending on additional storage capacity over the next year.

Similar to the HP StorageWorks All-in-One Storage Systems, HP has greatly simplified setup and installation for SMBs with the HP D2D backup system. It features an iSCSI interface that plugs into a standard Ethernet network and a setup wizard that allows customers with little or no storage experience to configure the device.

Consolidating backups onto a single disk-based system eliminates the need for multiple direct-attached backup devices and the associated management overhead.

Additionally, browser-based management allows customers to monitor their HP D2D Backup System from anywhere on the network, at any time.

“The HP StorageWorks D2D backup virtually eliminates the main causes of failed backups and slow restores to help protect our customers’ most valuable asset – their data,” said Ashraf Helmy, marketing manager, StorageWorks, HP Middle East. “Like our HP StorageWorks all-in-one, we designed it with the SMB in mind to deliver the most simplicity, reliability and affordability in one intuitive, integrated package.”

The HP D2D Backup System is also available as a discounted bundle that includes the HP Data Protector Express Software Kit. The bundle provides customers with a complete data protection solution that supports fully automatic daily backup of four servers.
