HP Promises Data Recovery at up to 40 Terabytes an hour

At HP's Discover conference in Las Vegas today the company announced that StoreOnce can do data recovery at rate of up to 40 Terabytes an hour. Performance is also getting a boost from new deduplication capabilities via improved software.

Craig Nunes, Vice President, Marketing at HP Storage, explained to InternetNews.com that the new performance benchmarks were achieved via a combination of items. Those items include a scale out architecture as well as an HP Labs technologies called Predictive Acceleration. What Predictive Acceleration does is it reduces memory and disk I/O needs.

Another component of the performance boost comes from HP's Rapid Restore, which is a matching algorithm that relieves the deduplication overhead on restore. Going a step further is the HP StoreOnce Catalyst, which allows the deduplication processing to be offloaded from the StoreOnce appliance to the backup server and application server.
