HP touts stress-free, EMC-rich strategy
Aberdeen Group likes it
Hyped as ushering in a new era of stress-free enterprise storage, HP’s new strategy got the thumbs up from analysts with the Aberdeen Group. Senior analyst David Hill said: “HP is positioning itself well to compete in the changing storage market with a broad range of high availability and online and offline its fibre channel systems.” HP’s storage systems are based almost exclusively on EMC’s very clever technologies and the new systems include an Intelligent Storage Server for backup and increased uptime. It uses disk-to-disk backup and shares storage libraries between multiple servers. Also new is the Fibre Channel Model 1010D High Availability Storage System for critical reliability. Other features include utility automation; software-based storage attached network management capabilities that trigger and send alarms in the event of device failure; and DLT library improvements include support for Windows NT with a boot capability from DLT devices. ®
