HP shrinks StorageWorks

SME too

Application security programs and practises

HP's press office has taken a break from fending off journalists wanting to know why their phone records haven't been pretexted to trumpet some new small and medium enterprise (SME) storage kit.

The lowest end of the All-in-One (AiO) range is aimed at real tiddlers; for your $5,000 you get 1TB of networked storage in four SATA bays. A six bay model runs to $9,000 for 3TB of SATA, or £9,250 for 876GB of SAS. That's a lot of records to be sure. The boxes interface with IP networks via iSCSI.

They've gone for a "Fisher Price My First NAS approach", with built-in point-and-click GUI ties to Microsoft Exchange and SQL server.

The platform also includes a full version of HP's StorageWorks Data Protector Express Software which HP says enables data back up and recovery from tape, virtual tape, optical or external disks.

SMEs are pretty much spoilt for choice when it comes to getting into NAS. See our feature on the market for evidence of how every vendor reckons this is their ticket to further growth.

The HP gear is available now, and the company says it will primarily be sold through channel partners. ®
