The first federated deduplication solution to provide leading disk-based backup for the full spectrum of IT environments—from small, remote sites to large enterprises.

HP StoreOnce Backup systems reduce the amount of backup data you need to store by up to 95%, so with our scale-out architecture you can pay-as-you-grow to retain up to 10 petabytes of data in a single pool. They provide automated backup and DR operations with all the features you'd expect from disk backup, and some you can only get from HP.

HP StoreOnce Catalyst delivers industry-leading backup speeds of up to 100TB/hour to meet shrinking backup windows, plus Federated Deduplication across the enterprise so you can dedupe data anywhere to suit your configuration. Choose between powerful dedicated appliances for larger offices and data centers, and flexible VMware virtual machines for smaller and remote offices.

With HP’s single StoreOnce deduplication technology, managing the movement of data across the enterprise has never been easier. Seamlessly integrating with your current backup applications, StoreOnce Backup provides flexible integration for both SAN and virtualized environments.

The HP StoreOnce Advantage

With the only federated deduplication solution available today, HP StoreOnce Backup with StoreOnce Catalyst overcomes the gaps, inefficiencies and costs associated with fragmented, first-generation deduplication technologies and delivers industry leading backup speeds.

  • Fast—Meet shrinking backup windows and challenging RTO/RPO commitments
  • Flexible—Dedupe and replicate backup from anywhere to anywhere
  • Federated—Single deduplication engine deployed where you want with no need for data rehydration

Features and Benefits:

Federated Deduplication across the enterprise with a single deduplication technology - StoreOnce

  • Deduplicate anywhere -- at the application source or at the backup server or at the target appliance. Deduplicate where it makes sense for your business, not where technology vendors’ limitations mandate.
  • Save time and money by moving data around the enterprise in its deduplicated state.
  • HP StoreOnce delivers a unified solution for seamless data movement across the enterprise; with cost-effective virtual backup machines ideal for smaller remote offices, high-performance dedicated appliances for larger sites, and highly scalable, powerful systems for your data center.
  • Federated Deduplication is available across the HP StoreOnce Backup portfolio – including dedicated appliances, virtual backup solutions, and on media servers and application servers with HP Data Protector and Symantec NetBackup and Backup Exec software through OST.

Industry-leading, Scale-out Architecture with Greater Resilience

  • Scale-out architecture allows you to pay as you grow. Choose capacity points available through virtual backup solutions or dedicated appliances that start small and allow you to add in virtual capacity, shelves or nodes as needed.
  • With a range of native capacity points to suit enterprise wide requirements: from large-scale 768 TB raw (512 TB useable) in the data center, to 96 TB raw (76 TB useable) for mid-size regional offices, and down to between 1 and 10 TBs for small and remote offices.
  • Add capacity and performance online with no need for additional planned downtime. With StoreOnce VSA backup service providers can rapidly stand-up or retire up to 10TB of additional capacity to meet changing customer requirements.
  • Autonomic Failover -- HP StoreOnce B6200 uniquely delivers industry-leading availability with no single point of failure. If a node fails, its companion node picks up the load and the backup continues without any operator involvement.
  • All HP StoreOnce Backup systems are built with RAID protection.

Backup within your Window with our Industry Leading Backup Performance

  • A broad range of superior price/performance points to meet backup windows across the enterprise.
  • Up to 100 TB/hour backup speeds at the high-end, with price/performance points down to the entry-level 1 TB/hour with StoreOnce Catalyst.
  • Up to 40 TB/hour native backup speeds when used as a VTL target.
  • Up to 40 TB/hour industry leading restore speeds. StoreOnce Backup restores at the same speed as native ingest.
  • Available as purpose built backup appliances or flexible VMware virtual appliance with centralized monitoring through StoreOnce Enterprise Manager.

Automated, Efficient Backup and Disaster Recovery Operations with StoreOnce Catalyst

  • Manage backup and Disaster Recovery operations from a single pane of glass with StoreOnce Catalyst.
  • Implement Disaster Recovery plans that were not previously feasible due to lack of multi-site capabilities, cost of bandwidth and time.
  • One-to-many Disaster Recovery moves data simultaneously from one site to many sites.
  • Cascaded Disaster Recovery moves data sequentially from one site to any number of other sites.
  • Alerting and trending in StoreOnce Enterprise Manager to enable backup capacity management.
