HP unveils Data Protector 8.1 

“[This] release marks the end of backup as we know it,” said David Jones, GM, Data Protection, HP Autonomy. “HP Data Protector delivers the industry’s first self-aware, self-healing and self-managing solution that will transform how forward-thinking organizations power and protect the modern data center.”

Data Protector 8.1 has four components, which form the basis of HP’s vision for a new class of intelligent backup solutions. These include prioritization of data and applications, prediction using operational analytics, recommendations to managers to reduce potential conflicts and follow SLA requirements, and automation of backup and recovery based on operational analytics.

Integration with SAP HANA provides backup and recovery to SAP HANA’s databases, recreates logs, and performs database recovery to the most recent recoverable state.

The solution’s disaster recovery enhancements include wizard pages to streamline and automate the disaster recovery process and new object selection methods. A priority-based scheduler also allows businesses to back up mission-critical data according to specific business needs.

The solution can also integrate with HP StoreOnce and HP 3PAR StoreServ; improved HP StoreOnce compression to deliver better efficiency, encryption, and instant recovery support.

Data Protector 8.1 has integration capabilities with Microsoft Active Director and VMware vCenter 5.5 for Single Item Recovery, as well as certification with VMware vSphere 5.5 and vCloud Director 5.5. The product’s new platform certifications include application agent support for Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and IBM DB2 10.5, disk agent support for Debian 7.0 and AIX 64 bit, and media agent support for AIX 64 bit and Solaris 11.1.

HP Data Protector 8.1 will be available by January 2014.
