HP D2D Backup Installation


We are please to announce our sucessful finished installation of the new HP StorageWorks D2D 100 Backup System. A customer had issues with its daily backup over-running into the early office hours due to the size of company data that had to be backed up onto tape to be stored offsite. Also multiple servers with multiple tape drives where getting difficult to administer.  This systems combines the speed of disk transfer with the reliability of tape which consolidates their backups onto a couple of tapes and leaves the backup to run on it's own server keeping network and server permorfance at its upmost during the day.

It Provides :
* Support for LTO-3 tape drive and autoloader emulation which saved costs due to the moving of the existing invested tape drives
* Support for up to six virtual tape drives or autoloaders providing backup for up to six servers simultaneously.
* Data transfer rate increase to 50MB/s.
* Increase in virtual tape capacity to 800GB per virtual cartridge.
