Data is the lifeblood of business. A company’s data is usually copied at least once, and often multiple times, to meet the needs of various use cases such as clones for test/dev or analytics, backup copies for data protection, archival copies for compliance, instant recovery copies, or, any particular set of data is likely to have spawned one or more copies. Copies are so important that they now consume 60% of total storage capacity for the average enterprise – even more than production data. While these copies are nearly always made for a good reason, in many organizations they have spiralled out of control, creating a copy data sprawl that is tough for IT to get its arms around, let alone manage.
So how do you protect this important asset, grant copies to all who need it, and avoid paying for extra storage capacity – on-premises and in the cloud? HPE Storage’s Recovery Manager Central (RMC) for 3PAR and Nimble Storage platforms delivers a single-pane-of-glass for Copy Data Management and Data Protection for a variety of workloads such as VMware, Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SAP HANA and more. In this talk, we will cover how RMC delivers a DataOps experience for 3PAR and Nimble platforms with live demos.
