Data Protection of Virtual Machines with HPE StoreEver Tape Storage

Executive summary

Many organizations are looking for ways to reduce power consumption, cooling requirements, and server footprint. Sufficient storage capacity is another major concern for organizations today. Moving to virtualized environments mitigates these concerns by enabling organizations to consolidate their data centers. Likewise, moving virtual data from expensive disk-based storage to a less resource-intensive tape-based solution is a complementary strategy.
HPE Tape Storage provides dependable, secure, and scalable tape storage. Copying data to tape reduces storage costs by moving data off expensive disk storage media. Tapes can then be vaulted at an off-site repository for security and disaster recovery.
Protecting virtualized data can present unique challenges. Veeam Backup & Replication is built specifically for backup and long-term retention of virtual environments. Starting with Veeam Backup & Replication v7, administrators can create an automated solution for moving virtual data from the disk storage tier to inexpensive and dependable tape storage, greatly simplifying data management.
