Massachusetts is well-known as the landing place of the Mayflower and home to the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. But this is one state that hasn’t stood still in time. Today, Massachusetts has the challenging task of accommodating the needs of its various state agencies. In particular, those needs include IT support surrounding disaster recovery and data management.
For IT departments looking to bring their AIX environments up to the next step in data protection, IBM’s PowerHA (HACMP) connects multiple servers to shared storage via clustering. This offers automatic recovery of applications and system resources if a failure occurs with the primary server.
Disaster recovery involves continuous data availability and much more. Companies that understand the key steps to ensuring smooth recovery from a disaster can choose solutions that meet today’s need and tomorrow’s. This white paper explains the five steps that are necessary to develop and implement a disaster recovery plan, and recommends tools, techniques and best practices to make your efforts a success.
Are you considering in-house disaster recovery management? In the last five years, many companies have. But did you know that without the proper resources in place, managing disaster recovery yourself can put a strain on your budget, your staff and your disaster preparedness? Read this IBM-Forrester global study “The Risks of ‘Do It Yourself’ Disaster Recovery” to learn the critical components that make a disaster recovery strategy successful, and the key questions you need to ask before bringing disaster recovery in-house.

This paper explores the five critical decisions organizations must adhere to when building a backup and recovery plan to prevent the complexity of virtualization that complicates IT services and the day-to-day of IT professionals across industries.
This paper is the outcome of a series of in-depth interviews ESG analysts performed with senior IT professionals in various industries. The objective was to determine the direct and indirect value customers derive from using HP backup, recovery, and archive solutions for information and more specifically their returns on: information—such as gaining more value from corporate data for better decisions; infrastructure—in the form of lowering costs and increasing infrastructure agility; and individuals—including time savings and reduced management complexity.
Although ESG continues to see the vast majority of IT organizations living within a disk-plus-tape world, no one can argue against the idea that the cloud is becoming a viable and attractive component of any data protection architecture. Modern disk and tape solutions have overwhelming benefits for ROI, but those benefits can often be expanded by leveraging the economics and additional agility capabilities of a cloud tier. And all of those tiers would benefit from smarter data protection and preservation mechanisms through the combination of both backups and archiving.
Although modern backup solutions can offer significant recovery agility, backup as an IT process is generally less than “enough” for the data protection goals that IT is being asked to deliver. As IT is embracing snapshots, replication, archiving, and availability mechanisms to enhance business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) preparedness, it is important to realize that there is a better way than piecemealing each component, and then wondering why CapEx and OpEx are so out of line.
In this report, we’ll examine first why HP StoreOnce and HP Data Protector products are truly game-changing on their own rights. Then, we will look at why they get even "better together” as a complete BURA solution that can be more flexibly deployed to meet backup challenges than any other solution in the market today.
When you have voluminous data sets growing at an unabated rate, in formats that are unique and complex, how do you address your backup and recovery needs? While relying on traditional backup and recovery solutions can complicate matters, a better approach is to use a solution that enables your IT organization to make decisions that are more intelligent by integrating predictive analysis and an adaptive approach to backup and recovery.
Looking beyond storage, HP Converged Infrastructure solutions enable your business to unleash the potential of your data center and reduce risk. Overcome IT sprawl with simplified management and implementation, enhanced performance, improved availability, and the economies of open standards and connectivity. For the business, this means faster time to revenue, increased agility, lesser risk, and lower cost of operation. HP delivers better value of convergence than other vendors do.
This video from Enterprise Strategy Group discusses findings of research they did with HP customers on how backup, recovery, and archiving solutions from HP, including the HP StoreOnce Backup product family, have helped them save time and money.

Disaster recovery is not only needed for catastrophic events like natural disasters or pandemics, but for any event, like a snow storm or power outage that keeps your workers from getting to the office and disrupts your business. This white paper by business continuity expert Tim Clark of Fact Point Group, explores best practices for disaster recovery and the key role of SSL VPNs in that process.
After a decade and a half optical technologies in the enterprise storage market account for only a fraction of 1% of enterprise storage hardware spending. For a traditional optical-based enterprise storage supplier, these are tough facts to acknowledge. Yet there will be a dramatically different future.
Achieve significant cost savings through consolidation of disaster recovery servers by combining the award-winning disaster protection of XOsoft's WANSync with the latest virtual server technologies from Microsoft and EMC. Consolidating disaster recovery servers on virtual machines can yield both reduced hardware costs and significantly lessened management burden.
