HP Autonomy Automates and Streamlines Data Protection with Release of LiveVault 7.7

Aug 14, 2013

Delivers integrated VMware vSphere support, unifies physical and virtual backups within a single web-based management portal

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2013 - HP Autonomy today unveiled Autonomy LiveVault 7.7, a comprehensive and easy-to-use cloud-based solution with integrated VMware vSphere support that unifies data protection and recovery across both virtual and physical environments. LiveVault 7.7 provides organizations with a fully managed, secure cloud backup solution that automates, streamlines, and reduces the cost and complexity of enterprise-class data protection.

Traditional data protection offerings are often exclusively either cloud or premise-based and often lack enterprise-class virtual environment support. This result in a complex deployment environment with organizations having to maintain multiple backup and recovery solutions, manage different support contracts, and train staff on a collection of incompatible data protection products. These limitations frequently mean organizations must make an unappealing choice between the agility and economic benefits of cloud protection versus fully meeting their enterprise backup and recovery requirements.

LiveVault 7.7 brings enterprise-class data protection to the cloud by providing organizations with a single interface from which to manage data protection across both physical and virtual machines. This helps organizations reduce costs, simplify backup management processes, and eliminate the need to have employees trained on multiple products to protect their environments.

"We are excited about the new LiveVault 7.7 backup product and HP's overall commitment to cloud-based solutions for data protection and recovery," said David Mould, Information Technology Operations manager at the Royal National Institute of Blind People. "We are impressed with the ease of set-up and are excited to be able to manage both physical and virtual backups from one web-based interface. This plus the addition of extensive VMware vSphere support has made LiveVault 7.7 a true enterprise-class solution."

"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," said David Jones, General Manager, Data Protection, HP Autonomy. "LiveVault 7.7 provides organizations a comprehensive solution to protect all of their data, on-premises and in the cloud. 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 is a key component of HP Autonomy's Unified Data Protection portfolio, and includes the following capabilities:

Integrates directly with the VMware vStorage API's for Data Protection (VADP) to provide snapshot backups of VMs without requiring extended backup windows or downtime.
Leverages Changed Block Tracking (CBT) to efficiently backup over the internet to the cloud.
Uses the same common code base for virtualized environments across both on-premise and cloud environments, simplifying support and enabling faster new feature enhancement delivery.
Offers a local on-premises cache (TurboRestore Appliance) for fast backup and restore.
Provides multiple data retention options from 30 days to 7 years, including legal hold support.

LiveVault 7.7 is scheduled for general availability at the end of September 2013.
