To back up and recover information stored locally on notebook and desktop PCs
HP has launched a new offering for backing up and recovering information stored locally on notebook and desktop PCs.
With HP Data Protector Notebook Extension, businesses can back up and recover data outside the corporate network, even while working remotely and offline, the company said.
According to HP, the Data Protector Notebook Extension includes expansion of backup policies to protect local data even when user works offline. Data is captured and backed up automatically each time a user changes, creates or receives a file. It is then stored temporarily in a local repository pending transfer to the network data vault for full backup and restore capabilities.
The company claims that businesses can reduce technology costs and increase employee productivity with the service’s continuous file protection, which provides automated protection for information created locally. With single-click recovery, users can recover their own files without initiating help desks calls. Data Protector Notebook Extension’s deduplication, data encryption and compression techniques help businesses to maximise bandwidth efficiency and security of information.
The user’s storage footprint is reduced by deduplication of multiple copies of data. All of the user’s data is then stored encrypted and compressed and the expired versions are cleaned up, the company said.
In addition, the company also introduced Backup and Recovery Fast Track Services, a suite of scalable service engagements that help implementation of Data Protector and Data Protector Notebook Extension.
