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.
