StorageWorks disk deduplication systems

Thursday, 02 April, 2009


HP has released two disk-based backup systems with data deduplication: the StorageWorks D2D Backup System for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the StorageWorks Virtual Library Systems (VLS) for enterprises.

The D2D backup systems emulate up to 16 LTO tape autoloaders or libraries and consolidate backup of up to 16 servers onto a single network-connected device.

VLS emulates multiple tape libraries or drives for data centres to reliably back up large amounts of data with quick data restores in the event of a disaster.

These data deduplication technologies enable customers to automate and remotely manage the systems with low-bandwidth replication. This provides data centre managers the ability to back up data remotely without manual intervention, thereby reducing staffing costs.

Also, using disk-based backup for remote locations reduces overhead by consolidating tape hardware into a single site.
