HP has introduced the StoreEver Storage tape portfolio featuring sixth-generation Linear Tape-open (LTO-6) technology, delivering twice the capacity and 44 per cent faster performance than the previous model.
A fragmented approach to data retention and protection can open organisations to legal and financial risks. From a technology perspective it can also result in high costs and management complexities.
Converged data centres reduce costs and complexities, but require a comprehensive approach to data protection that spans software, disk and tape technologies in order to mitigate risk.
HP StoreEver Storage, which the company says is the industry’s broadest tape storage portfolio, integrates HP’s market-leading tape products and technologies with HP Converged Storage, HP Data Protector and leading third-party backup software.
This integration, coupled with new LTO-6 capabilities, enables HP StoreEver Storage to deliver reliable long-term data protection and retention in a format that meets the needs of nearly every environment.
