Simplify Data Protection for Hybrid Cloud with HPE StoreOnce and HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery


In today’s digital age, organisations often find themselves navigating a challenging landscape when it comes to data management. On one hand, data has been compared to the new gold, and companies that fail to create a strategic vision for its use risk falling behind in the ever-evolving digital world. 

On the other hand, Australian enterprises face the pressing issue of data security and compliance. Recent high-profile data breaches, combined with the Australian government’s commitment to a significant overhaul of data and security regulations, have raised critical questions. How can organisations meet their regulatory and compliance obligations, protect customer data, and, at the same time, unlock the inherent value of their data resources? 

Moreover, this complex situation is further compounded by the ongoing IT skills crisis in Australia. Building a proficient team to craft a data strategy appears impossible. 

The answer to these multifaceted challenges is elegantly simple: HPE technologies such as HPE StoreOnce and HPE Greenlake for Backup and Recovery complemented by the expertise of Honeylight Consulting. 


What is HPE StoreOnce?

Why HPE StoreOnce for Backup and Recovery?

HPE StoreOnce offers a host of benefits for the digital enterprise, operating in the cloud. At the most basic level, it is a quite simple solution, and with the support of Honeylight, it is the very epitome of a “set and forget” solution.  

That simplicity doesn’t come at the expense of the depth or power of features, however. HPE StoreOnce offers its users: 

1. Simplified Cloud Experience

HPE StoreOnce is designed for the cloud, eliminating the need for extra gateways or virtual appliances. You can seamlessly integrate cloud capabilities into your backup and enterprise applications. It backs up only unique data, reducing cloud storage costs by 20X. It also enables straightforward cloud disaster recovery with encrypted, self-describing backup data. 

2. Efficient SLA Delivery

Experience rapid data recovery and ingestion performance. Achieve up to 23 times faster backups and up to 15 times faster recovery for your enterprise applications. This can be done with minimal disruption to your production environment by enabling direct backup from HPE Primera or HPE Nimble Storage to HPE StoreOnce via HPE RMC. Efficient deduplication and data reduction technologies reduce data growth and lower backup costs and storage footprint by up to 95%. 

3. Backup-as-a-Service

Access on-premises, secure data protection with a pay-per-use model through HPE GreenLake. This offers cost-efficient, automated backup, recovery, and data retention without concerns of over-provisioning or upfront capital expenditure. It leverages industry leading HPE StoreOnce technology and can scale seamlessly from small offices to large enterprises and service providers. 


What is HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery?

HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery offers one-stop shopping as Hewlett Packard Enterprise creates and maintains the backup environment, including updates and new functionality while enabling administration through a single cloud console.  It enables you to consistently protect on-premises VMware virtual machines, Microsoft SQL Server databases and cloud-native workloads (such as Amazon EBS volumes, EC2 instances EKS and RDS) with Global Protection Policy. This helps eliminate data silos, multiple administrative touch points, and point solutions delivered on a secure platform with built-in protection from ransomware and other threats.  

HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery is designed for application, storage, and backup administrators responsible for the protection of their organisation’s on-premises and cloud-native workloads. It provides assurance that in the event of an unintended deletion, data loss through an infrastructure outage, or a ransomware attack, data can be rapidly recovered to a known good point in time, in line with the service level commitment to the organisation. 

HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery offers its users: 

1. Effortless protection for on-premises and cloud-native workloads

Protect on-premises VMware VMs or Microsoft SQL Server databases running on any storage array or cloud-native workloads such as Amazon EBS, EC2, EKS and RDS. Define your backup SLAs across on-premises and cloud-native workloads for consistent protection with a single Global Protection Policy. 

2. Secure by design

Maintain air-gapped backups and use in-built security such as configurable backup data immutability, dual authorisation, and encryption (at rest and in flight) to keep your data secure. Mitigate disasters rapidly using HPE array-optimised snapshots of VMs, applications, or datastores when utilising HPE GreenLake for Block Storage, HPE Alletra, HPE Primera, or HPE Nimble Storage Gen5 storage devices that are managed using the HPE GreenLake cloud portal. 

3. Highly efficient data protection

Leverage HPE StoreOnce Catalyst protocol offering up to 8x better storage efficiency than other similar solutions. With this service you have the flexibility to select either pay-as-you go experience — or a fixed commitment for 1–5 years to get the lowest unit price. There are no additional complex licenses, cloud infrastructure to manage, hidden data egress charges, forecasting and lack of visibility of pricing. 

 4. Simple, unified management and agentless deployment

Manage both on-premises and cloud-native workloads through a single unified management console.  Agentless on-premises deployment allows for automatic timely upgrades without causing any disruption or downtime. The on-demand cloud-native service helps eliminate complexity, freeing you from the day-to-day hassles of managing your backup infrastructure.
