The application combines data protection and recovery processes to offer secure cloud backup.
HP Autonomy has unveiled a new cloud-based data protection application designed both for the virtual and physical environments.
Autonomy LiveVault 7.7 is integrated with VMware vSphere support that combines data protection and recovery processes to offer secure cloud backup, while reducing the cost and complexity of enterprise-class data protection, the company said.
It added that application offers enterprise-class data protection to the cloud by offering a single interface, which ensures data protection as well as helps organisations to decrease costs and simplify backup management processes.
HP Autonomy Data Protection general manager David Jones said that the companies have to protect a new generation of enterprise data that is exploding across a wide range of locations, applications, and formats in physical and virtual environments.
"LiveVault 7.7 provides organizations a comprehensive solution to protect all of their data, on-premises and in the cloud," Jones added.
"This streamlines operations, reduces the cost of ownership, and delivers fast recoveries while still providing a secure offsite mirrored copy of data."
LiveVault 7.7 combines directly with the VMware vStorage API’s for Data Protection (VADP) to offer snapshot backups of VMs without extended backup windows or downtime, leverages Changed Block Tracking (CBT) to backup over the internet to the cloud.
The new application is scheduled for launch in September 2013, uses the common code base for virtualised environments across both on-premise and cloud environments as well as offers a local on-premises cache for backup and restore.
