HP StorageWorks D2D2500 Backup System provides consolidated, disk-based data protection in an intelligent self-managing 1U rack-mountable solution. It integrates seamlessly into your existing environment and works with your backup software application to automate the simultaneous daily backup of up to six servers onto a single network-connected device, eliminating the management of multiple devices and reducing errors caused by tape media handling. An intuitive browser based user interface simplifies local and remote device management to deliver reliable data protection for remote offices and smaller IT environments. The HP D2D2500 Backup System features Dynamic deduplication, which removes redundant backup data to retain up to 50x more data on the same 3 TB disk and allows low bandwidth replication for cost-effective offsite backup and recovery. At less than the cost of comparable solutions, the D2D2500 Backup System is an affordable step toward improved data protection.

What's New

Available with low bandwidth replication for cost-effective backup of remote offices and offsite disaster recovery. License by target device required.

Allows direct attach to tape autoloaders and tape libraries, enabling easy offload to physical tape for an additional level of data security and disaster recovery.

Features and Benefits

"Hands-free" backup
Automating the backup process simplifies and reduces the time spent managing your data protection processes. Implementing unattended daily backup is especially good for environments with limited IT resources.

Backup multiple servers faster
Backing up six servers simultaneously to a disk-based solution at speeds of up to 270 GB per hour instead of sequentially to a tape drive or autoloader means that you can substantially reduce your backup window.

Make your backups more reliable
Improve the overall reliability of your backup infrastructure by automating and consolidating the backup of multiple servers to a single D2D2500 Backup System. This reduces the incidence of human error related to backup processes such as tape media rotation and management.

Easier backup of remote offices
An intuitive web-based browser interface allows you to monitor your D2D2500 Backup System device, locally or remotely, to check on available capacity, view progress or to make a change to device setup.

Retain up to 50 times more data on disk
Dynamic deduplication reduces the disk space required to store backup data sets by up to 50x without impacting backup performance. Retaining more backup data on disk for longer periods of time results in greater data accessibility for rapid restore of lost or corrupt files and reduces the impact on business productivity.

Low bandwidth replication
HP's Dynamic deduplication technology makes replication of backup data a cost-effective solution by significantly reducing the bandwidth required. Using low bandwidth links, backup data sets can be inexpensively transmitted from remote offices to a central location or from the data center to an offsite location for disaster recovery purposes.

Directly attach HP LTO tape drives to create a comprehensive D2D2T data protection solution
Create a comprehensive D2D2T data protection solution by directly attaching an HP LTO-2, LTO-3, or LTO-4 Ultrium tape drive, 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader or MSL2024 or MSL4048 Tape Library using one of HP's flexible rack-mount solutions. By directly connecting a tape drive, backup jobs can be exported to tape without impacting network bandwidth.

Offload to tape for longer term archival
The D2D2500 Backup System includes offload to tape capability for cost-effective archival and offsite vaulting. Use your backup application to copy data from the D2D2500 Backup System to tape, or use the appliance's direct copy facility at any time of day without reducing network bandwidth.

More affordable data protection
At less than the cost of comparable solutions with deduplication, the HP D2D2500 Backup System delivers more affordable data protection by storing more data in the same raw 3 TB disk and supporting savings in IT resources, physical space and power requirements.

Seamlessly integrates into current environment
The D2D2500 Backup System has a 1U form factor and is easily rack-mounted in standard racks for efficient use of space in the data center. It supports all leading backup applications allowing the device to be installed and used without additional investment in systems, software or staff training.

Reduce maintenance
With the highly reliable D2D2500 Backup System you can also reduce the time spent on routine maintenance; pre-configured with hardware-based RAID 5, this self-managing device does not require you to create RAID sets, conduct disk defragmentation or apply security patches.

Automation - making backup easier

Using your backup software application, create "hands-free" daily backup with the following benefits:

Reduce your backup window - backing up six servers simultaneously at disk speeds of up to 270 GB per hour, instead of one after the other to a tape drive or autoloader, means that you can dramatically reduce your backup window.

Takes the manual labor out of daily backup - no one has to remember to change the backup tapes each day. Use HP Data Protector Express Software or other compatible backup software to set your backup schedule and then forget it. Unlike over-the-network backup to a tape drive or autoloader, where every backup job happens sequentially, the HP D2D2500 Backup System can back up six servers simultaneously. This means that you don't have to worry about backup jobs not finishing within the backup window, leaving data unprotected or having an adverse impact on user productivity at the beginning of the workday.

Reduced media handling - using the D2D2500 Backup System for daily backup means fewer tape cartridges to store and track and lower IT costs. You may be able to reduce backup to tape to a weekly event, creating a weekly full backup to tape to meet offsite, disaster recovery and archiving requirements.

Data protection for remote or branch offices and smaller IT environments

Easy to install - the D2D2500 Backup System integrates seamlessly into your existing IT environment using an install wizard to take you from power-on to ready for backup in just three steps. Because it's a preconfigured backup solution, you won't need to configure RAID sets or set up LUNs as you would with other types of disk-based backup products. And your backup software views the D2D2500 Backup System as tape, so adding extra software components is not typically required.

Remote management - a web-based browser interface means that you can monitor and manage the D2D2500 Backup System from anywhere, at anytime, on the network, locally or remotely. You can monitor deduplication stats, check available capacity, view and change tape emulation configurations, copy or export data to physical tape, set up tape copy schedules, set up or change e-mail alerts, upload new device firmware, or setup new "virtual" tape devices anytime, anywhere.

Low bandwidth replication - HP Dynamic deduplication reduces the amount of backup data to be transmitted for data replication, significantly reducing the bandwidth required and delivering more cost effective centralized backup of distributed offices.

Minimal maintenance - unlike other disk-based backup devices that use Microsoft Windows operating systems, such as NAS or storage servers, the D2D2500 Backup System requires no routine maintenance. It's a secure, self-managing device that doesn't need periodic disk defragmentation, security patches, or updates to virus protection.
