Make backup easier HP StoreOnce Backup systems work with your backup application to help automate and improve the
backup process while reducing the time spent managing data protection. Implementing unattended daily
backup to disk is especially valuable for environments with limited IT resources.
Keep pace with data
growth
Most HP StoreOnce Backup systems (apart from the entry level D2D2500 series), allow you to grow usable
capacity as your backup data requirements grow. The D2D4324 allows you to scale up from 18 to 72 TB of
usable capacity, the D2D4312 allows you to scale up from 9 to 36TB of usable capacity, The D2D4112
from 9 to 18 TB of usable capacity and the D2D4106 from 4.5 to 9 TB of usable capacity as your data
storage requirements grow, by using a simple and cost effective capacity upgrade for a lower cost
alternative to purchasing additional systems.
Improve backup
efficiency with data
deduplication
Why continue to store the same data over and over again with each backup? HP StoreOnce deduplication
reduces the disk space required to store backup data sets by typically 20x by eliminating duplicate data
without impacting backup performance. This means that you can retain more backup data on disk for
longer, and enables greater data accessibility for rapid restore of lost or corrupt files.
Meet shrinking backup
windows
StoreOnce Backup systems can simultaneously back up multiple servers on a standard 1 or 10Gb Ethernet
or 4 and 8 Gb Fibre Channel network to a single disk-based solution. With up to 50 backup streams
configured to a single StoreOnce backup system you can achieve backup performance of up to 4TB/hour to
reduce your backup window.
Improve data protection
at remote offices
The HP StoreOnce Backup systems with HP StoreOnce deduplication reduces the network bandwidth
needed to transmit data offsite. This enables cost-effective, network efficient data replication to
automate and centralize backup from remote sites or branch offices Replication manager*, included with
the replication license, provides an easier way to centrally manage a large number of devices being
replicated to a central site.
StoreOnce Backup systems offer an intuitive web-based browser interface allowing you to monitor your
StoreOnce Backup system, locally or remotely, to view results or change settings. This self-managing
device also reduces your routine maintenance.

across the organization to a single Backup system. This not only simplifies backup but means that restore
is easier too.
The 1U, 2U, 4U StoreOnce Backup systems are easily rack-mounted in standard racks for efficient use of
space in the data center and remote offices. Supported by all leading backup applications, this allows each
system to be installed and used without additional investment in software.
Enhance reliability By automating and consolidating backup you can reduce operator intervention and consequently user-
generated errors. Furthermore, HP StoreOnce Backup systems include hardware-based RAID 5 or RAID 6 to
reduce the risk of data loss due to disk failure.

HP StoreOnce
deduplication
- keep more data on
disk for longer
Data deduplication is a method of reducing storage needs by eliminating redundant data so that over time
only one unique instance of the data is actually retained on disk. As a result, typically 20x more backup
data can be retained (up to 1.4 petabytes) in the same disk footprint.
Adding data deduplication to disk-based backup delivers a number of benefits:
A cost effective way of keeping your backup data on disk for a number of weeks or even months.
More efficient use of disk space effectively reduces the cost-per-gigabyte of storage and the need
to purchase more disk capacity.
Making file restores fast and easy from multiple available recovery points. By extending data
retention periods on disk, your backup data is more accessible for longer periods of time, before
archiving to tape. In this way, lost or corrupt files can be quickly and easily restored from backups
taken over a longer time span.
Ultimately, data deduplication makes the replication of backup data over lower bandwidth WAN
links viable (providing offsite protection for backup data) as only changed data is sent across the
connection to a second device (either a second identical device or one that comes from this product
family).
HP StoreOnce deduplication
HP StoreOnce deduplication software simplifies the deployment of deduplication technology across IT
infrastructures. With explosive data growth driving IT sprawl, deduplication technology is quickly
becoming a requirement for many customers to help reduce the capacity required to store information.
Traditional deduplication technologies tend to approach the problem from a fragmented
perspective and this results in multiple deduplication methodologies being deployed adding to the
management complexity of the infrastructure. HP StoreOnce is different; as a next generation
deduplication architecture, it is not sold as standalone software, but rather is a portable engine that
can be consistently embedded in multiple products, eliminating the complexity of first generation
deduplication. HP StoreOnce uses patented innovation and features designed by HP Labs to
maximize backup and restore performance while minimizing management and hardware overhead.
How it works
Deduplication works by examining the data stream as it arrives at the storage appliance, checking for
blocks of data that are identical and eliminating redundant copies. If duplicate data is found, a pointer is
established to the original set of data as opposed to actually storing the duplicate blocks, removing or
"deduplicating" the redundant blocks from the volume. The key here is that the data deduplication is being
done at the block level to remove far more redundant data than deduplication done at the file level where
only duplicate files are removed.

Features and Benefits
DA - 13218 Worldwide — Version 18 — September 28, 2012 Page 4

Data deduplication is especially powerful when it is applied to backup, since most backup data sets have a
great deal of redundancy. The amount of redundancy will depend on the type of data being backed up, the
backup methodology and the length of time the data is retained.
Example. Backing up a large customer database that gets updated with new orders throughout the day.
With the typical backup application you would normally have to back up, and store the entire database.
Even incremental backups will result in storing the full database to disk once again, taking up increasing
amounts of disk space with almost identical backup data sets. With block-level deduplication, you can
backup the same database to the device on two successive nights and, due to its ability to identify
redundant blocks, only the blocks that have changed will be stored. All the redundant data will have
pointers established.
The HP approach to deduplication
HP StoreOnce deduplication software simplifies the deployment of deduplication technology across IT
infrastructures. With explosive data growth driving IT sprawl, deduplication technology is quickly
becoming a requirement for many customers to help reduce the capacity required to store information.
Traditional deduplication technologies tend to approach the problem from a fragmented perspective and
this results in multiple deduplication methodologies being deployed adding to the management
complexity of the infrastructure. HP StoreOnce is different; as a next generation deduplication
architecture, it is not sold as standalone software, but rather is a portable engine that can be consistently
embedded in multiple products, eliminating the complexity of first generation deduplication. HP
StoreOnce uses patented algorithms and features designed by HP Labs to maximize backup and restore
performance while minimizing management and hardware overhead.
HP StoreOnce deduplication software is not sold as standalone software but designed to be portable, it
can be embedded in multiple products. All HP StoreOnce Backup systems including systemHP B6000 and
HP Data Protector 6.2.1 include the HP StoreOnce deduplication engine.
Most StoreOnce customers using the earlier HP Dynamic deduplication technology can upgrade their
firmware to improve performance and enable replication to newer systems based on HP StoreOnce.
NOTE: The HP VLS product family uses deduplication based on object-level data deduplication for
increased performance in large scale Fibre Channel deployments. These deduplication technologies are
not compatible; they use different technologies and cannot be used together.
For more information on HP StoreOnce deduplication refer to the white papers available on
http://www.hp.com/go/d2d
What deduplication ratio can I expect?
The actual data deduplication ratio you can expect will depend on a number of factors including: the type
of data, the backup methodology used, and the length of time you retain your data. However, assuming
standard business data mix and extended on disk retention (periods of more than 12 weeks) you could
expect to see:
20:1 capacity ratio assuming a weekly full and daily incremental backup model
Is there likely to be any impact on performance?
The graphic below aims to illustrate that the actual performance achieved using a StoreOnce Backup
system is dependent upon a number of factors including data set type, compression levels, number of
data streams, number of devices emulated and number of concurrent tasks, such as backup and
deduplication, housekeeping, and replication. In general, the more process steps, the longer it may take.

Consequently, when compared to backup alone, a reduced amount of data will be backed up AND
replicated by each StoreOnce Backup system within the same timeframe.
The illustration assumes a fully configured product, a compression ratio of 1.5, a data change rate of 1%, a
data retention period of 6 months and a 10hr backup window. Each box in the diagram depicts how much
data can be typically protected by each model of HP StoreOnce Backup systems on a daily basis. It
compares the difference between solely conducting backup with data deduplication, to performing backup
and data deduplication with the addition of a data replication process.
The new HP B6200 StoreOnce Backup system extends this data protection to provide up to 224TBs in an 8
hour window. Please refer to the B6200 if you require higher performance disk backup systems. See
www.hp.com/go/b6200 for more details
Note also, that all forms of data deduplication can have a particular impact on tape offload performance,
as data must be rehydrated before it is stored to tape. The StoreOnce Backup system is designed for daily
t backup, however, tape should still have an important part in cost-effective longer term archival or where
data replication is not used for off-site disaster recovery. Continuing to off-load from the StoreOnce
device to tape on a daily basis may have a negative impact on performance.
For help with choosing the most appropriate StoreOnce Backup systems for your specific environment, we
recommend you talk to your HP partner or sales advisor about using the HP storage Sizing Tool which can
be downloaded from the Downloads section of www.hp.com/go/ d2dsizer
Making use of the StoreOnce backup system's ability to run multiple backups in parallel can substantially
improve aggregate throughput to a StoreOnce appliance. This and a number of other best practices can
help you to optimize the performance of a StoreOnce Backup system. Please refer to: HP StoreOnce

Data
replication -
network efficient
disaster recovery
Data replication is the process of making a replica copy of a data set across a network to a "target site". It
is generally used to transmit backup data sets off-site to provide disaster recovery (DR) protection in the
event of catastrophic data loss at the "source site"
In the past, only the largest companies could afford to implement data replication as replicating large
volumes of data backup over a typical WAN is expensive. However, today's StoreOnce products with data
deduplication have made it possible to replicate data over lower bandwidth links for a more cost-effective,
network efficient replication solution that provides a practical disaster recovery solution for most sizes of
business, in addition to an ideal solution for centralizing the backup of remote offices.
Data deduplication shrinks the amount of backup data that needs to be replicated from the source HP
StoreOnce appliance, and as a result significantly reduces replication bandwidth requirements. Once a
replica of the data backup set has been created on a remote HP StoreOnce target appliance, all that is
required to keep the replica identical to the source is the automatic, periodic copying and movement of the
new data segments which are created during each backup. With such small amounts of data being
transmitted asynchronously, lower bandwidth networks offer sufficient performance and a much lower
cost solution.
HP's data replication feature includes replication bandwidth limiting functionality, restricting the amount
of bandwidth being used when replicating data for even more network-efficient replication. Without
replication bandwidth limiting, a replication job could use as much bandwidth as is available, potentially
making other network activities unresponsive. Replication bandwidth limiting is customer configurable at
the appliance level via the graphical user interface and is set as a percentage of the available network
bandwidth.
The following HP StoreOnce Backup systems are available with replication which may be licensed by
target.
D2D2502i - a total of 4 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D2502i target
D2D2504i - a total of 8 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D2504i target
D2D4000 - a total of 16 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D4000 target
D2D4106 - a total of 16 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D4106 target
D2D4112 - a total of 24 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D4112 target
D2D4312 - a total of 50 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D4312 target
D2D4324 - a total of 50 source appliances can replicate to a single D2D4324 target
See the 'Related Options - Replication licenses' section of this document for ordering and fulfillment
information for Replication licenses, Replication Manager and OST Plug-ins.
Once a license has been obtained, configuring and using replication is made straightforward by the
graphical user interface and configuration wizard on the HP StoreOnce appliance.
HP StoreOnce Replication Manager 2.0 allows users to monitor, report and manage multiple StoreOnce
backup systems' GUI's through a single management console. Replication Manager 2.0 provides an easier
way to monitor backup targets, showing trends analysis, enhanced topology view and email alert
notification for up to 400 StoreOnce backup systems, being replicated to a central site. Replication

Replication Manager 2.0 supports windows 32 and 64-bit support.
Replication Manager software is available with the following replication licenses (EH990A, EH991A,
EH994A, EH984A, EH999A and EH985A).
In order to benefit from Replication manger, StoreOnce backup systems require the latest firmware, which
can be obtained via a free firmware upgrade by following the "Support & Drivers" link on
www.hp.com/go/d2d or by following the "HP Support & Drivers" link from: www.hp.com
Symantec's Open Storage Technology (OST) is an API (Application Programming Interface) that allows
third party storage devices to integrate with Symantec backup software (NetBackup) in order to offer
improved management of duplicated copies of backups without the limitations of tape emulation.
With HP's OST plug-in installed on Media Servers, Symantec backup applications (i.e. NetBackup) will have
visibility to replicated copies of backups on remote StoreOnce Backup systems. This provides seamless
integration into the backup administrator's workflow. Replicated copies are tracked by the backup
application; content for both copies is maintained in the local backup domain's catalog.
NOTE: Replication of data can occur between devices within the same product family i.e. between the HP
D2D2500, D2D4000, D2D4112, D2D4312 and D2D4324 Backup systems. However, replication is not
supported outside this configuration. It is not possible to replicate data from the D2D2500 to the D2D100
Backup system, VLS product ranges nor to competitors' disk based backup systems with replication
features.
Choosing the best backup
target for data protection
- VTL or NAS*
While originally released as a virtual tape library, StoreOnce Backup systems are capable of supporting
both VTL and NAS targets for backup applications on a single platform.
A virtual tape library (or VTL) is a disk-based solution which sits between your server and your physical
tape drive/library to provide faster data backup, greater data availability and rapid restores. The
StoreOnce Backup systems emulate both LTO tape autoloaders and libraries which are then recognized by
the backup application as one or more physical tape devices. As compared to other disk-based data
protection solutions, the advantages of using a virtual tape library are its ability to leverage and integrate
into current tape backup environments, its ease of setup and management, and its minimal maintenance
requirements.
When using the HP StoreOnce Backup system as a NAS target, one or more file shares can be created on
each system which are then used by the backup application as either CIFS targets for backup. Recognized
and supported by a wide range of backup applications and integrated backup agents, using the StoreOnce
system as a NAS target provides a simple and cost-effective method to centralize and automate the
backup of multiple servers in a non-tape environment.
The StoreOnce Backup system will appear to the backup application as a NAS device The StoreOnce Backup
system should not be used as a generic file-share device and will not perform optimally if used as such as
it has been designed and optimized for performing backup and hence includes data deduplication and
support for low-bandwidth replication.
The OST plug-in is built upon the NAS foundation. The first step is to configure CIFS shares on the
StoreOnce Backup systems. Next, the plug-in is installed on the Media Servers. Instead of directing
backups directly to CIFS shares on the StoreOnce Backup systems, the backup administrator configures
the Media Servers to use the OST plug-in. More importantly, deduplicated replication may be tracked
within the backup application which maintains catalog information for both the local and the remote

copies of backup images.
* For legacy D2D backup systems (EJ001A, EJ002A, EH938A, EH939A, EH941A, EH942A, EH999A), the
addition of NAS as a target for backup is limited to the CIFS protocol, suitable for use in Windows-only
environments. Earliest legacy systems used authentication models for the CIFS protocol of "no
authentication" or "local user level authentication". There was no support for Microsoft Active Directory
authentication. However support for Microsoft Active Directory authentication is available on legacy
systems via a free firmware upgrade by following the "Support & Drivers" link on www.hp.com/go/d2d or
by following the "HP Support & Drivers" link from: www.hp.com EJ001C, EJ002C, EH993C EH996B,
EH998B, EH985A and EH983B support CIFS, with Microsoft Active Directory authentication and NFS
protocols.
Differences between using a NAS or a VTL target for the HP StoreOnce Backup system
For customers already familiar with or who plan to continue using tape automation in their backup
environment, using VTL as a target for backup applications for the HP StoreOnce Backup system can
provide some key advantages including:
Ensuring best backup performance.
The ability to leverage tape automation licensing that may already be in use with your backup
application.
Customers who are more familiar with using file systems, and for those customers who may be moving
away from using tape backup, may find using the StoreOnce Backup system as a NAS target provides a
simpler way to configure their backup. Using the StoreOnce system as a NAS target for backup can also
provide some key advantages including:
No need for additional backup application licensing as most mainstream backup application and
integrated backup agents include support for backup to CIFS and NFS devices.
No need for expertise in traditional backup methods as backup to a file share provides a simple
method for backup.
An easily adaptable backup methodology for remote offices where local tape backup will not be
deployed and IT resources are limited.
While using the StoreOnce Backup system as a NAS target for backup may provide a simple method for
backup and recovery, there are a number of additional considerations one must be aware of when
implementing this methodology including:
There is a restriction on the number of backups each file share can accept concurrently. This varies
based on the backup application being used and what data type is being backed up. Please refer to
the HP StoreOnce Backup systems Best Practices Guide for additional details.
Deduplication will occur on any backup file that is greater than 24 MB. Backup applications may also
create some small files during a backup job, these will not be deduplicated in order to ensure
maximum performance and random access.
NAS targets on the StoreOnce system are designed to be accessed for backup as such a file may
only be accessed by a single user at a time - multiple users are not permitted to access the same file
simultaneously.
There are significant differences between using a general NAS device and an HP StoreOnce Backup system
with a NAS target for backup applications.
The HP ProLiant Storage Server family of NAS appliances provide general disk file share and protection for

Windows environments. The HP StoreOnce Backup systems have been specifically designed for backup
and uniquely offer:
Easier setup, maintenance and administration of backup
Data deduplication functionality, allowing more backup data to be retained on disk for longer
Low-bandwidth data replication for cost-effective off-site storage
The StoreOnce backup systems should not be used for general purpose NAS operations such as file
sharing. The HP StoreOnce Backup system is designed for one particular usage model - as target storage
device for backup applications. StoreOnce Backup systems include in-line data deduplication and support
for low bandwidth replication (via a license) and is optimized for these features.
Migrating data to Tape The StoreOnce Backup systems are an excellent solution for regular and daily backup with data
deduplication allowing more data to be retained on disk for longer, and enabling network-efficient data
replication to deliver a cost-effective off-site disaster recovery solution.
Using the StoreOnce device should should enable a significant reduction in the amount of data stored on
physical tape, so that for example, there is no longer any need to store daily incremental backups on tape.
However, HP still recommends periodic off-load to tape as the most cost-effective, energy efficient and
robust solution for:
Long-term archival of data to meet regulatory requirements
Or off-site storage for disaster recovery where data replication is not an option
The frequency of copying data to tape will vary according to specific data protection requirements. Using a
combination of both disk and tape can deliver all the benefits of disk for fast data backup and restore, and
tape for additional levels of data protection, particularly over a period of multiple years.
When using the StoreOnce Backup system as a target for backup, there are two ways to periodically off-
load data to tape using stand-alone tape drives, autoloaders or libraries
For highest performance, use a separate physical tape backup. This uses the backup application to
create a completely separate tape backup from the server to a physical tape drive or library in
parallel to the StoreOnce backup. However, this will require the user to periodically manage two
separate backup processes ( StoreOnce on a daily basis, and both StoreOnce and Tape where
archival is being prepared).
For a straight-forward and easier to manage solution, and where performance is less of an issue, use
backup application copy. This uses the backup application to copy cartridges or NAS file shares that have
been backed up to the target StoreOnce backup system to a physical tape drive or library that is connected
elsewhere in the storage network either directly connected to a media server or on a Fibre Channel SAN.
This method may have a performance impact, as the data has to be re-assembled on the StoreOnce
backup system for copy and performance depends on the number of streams read/copied in parallel.

** For legacy D2D backup systems (EJ001A, EJ002A, EH938A, EH939A, EH941A, EH942A, EH999A), the
addition of NAS as a target for backup is limited to the CIFS protocol, suitable for use in Windows-only
environments. Earliest legacy systems used authentication models for the CIFS protocol of "no
authentication" or "local user level authentication". There was no support for Microsoft Active Directory
authentication. However support for Microsoft Active Directory authentication is available on legacy
systems via a free firmware upgrade by following the "Support & Drivers" link on www.hp.com/go/d2d or
by following the "HP Support & Drivers" link from: www.hp.com EJ001C, EJ002C, EH993C, EH996B,

For increased uptime, productivity and ROI -HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage
These days, you need to get the most out of your storage investment-you can't afford not to. When you buy HP storage products and
solutions, it's also a good time to think about what levels of service and support you may need. To help take the worry out of
deploying, designing, maintaining, and managing your environment, we've designed a portfolio of service options that are as: flexible,
reliable and scalable as your storage. Unlike storage-only vendors, we take a holistic approach to your entire environment, bridging
storage, servers, blades, software and network infrastructures with our HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage.
Protect your business beyond the warranty
When it comes to robustness and reliability, standard warranties on today's computing equipment have matured just as the
technologies have matured. Good news on some fronts-but also a source of potential problems and subsequent consequences that
come from depending on standard warranties alone. Standard warranty protects against product defects and some causes of
downtime- but not the business. By using a standard approach to warranty uplifts, such as HP Care Pack Services, you can reduce
downtime risks and be more certain of operational consistency for both mission-critical and standard business computing. Simply put,
HP Care Pack Services normalize the warranty of combined products - helping you proactively guard against unplanned downtime.
Extending warranties with HP Care Pack Services
For cost-effective upgrading or extending your standard warranty, HP Care Pack Services offer a suite of standard reactive hardware
and software support services that are sold separately, or combined as with our Support Plus and Support Plus 24 services. The
portfolio also provides a combination of proactive and reactive services, such as Proactive 24 Service and Critical Service. In addition,
with HP Proactive Select we offer an innovative approach to service delivery that gives you the flexibility to acquire the specific
proactive services you need today, then add services as your needs evolve. HP Proactive Select offers a broad set of technical or per-
event type service options - including server, storage, and network, SAN device, and software, environment, installation and education
services. Services that you can mix and match depending on your specific requirements, from preliminary planning and equipment
delivery to installation, configuration, integration, and testing, through every level of ongoing support. Our HP Care Pack packaged
services for Storage assures help when you need it most. And for many products, post-warranty HP Care Pack Services are available
when your original warranty has expired.

NOTE: D2D2500 units may be installed outside of a rack but this is not recommended by
HP. If installed outside of a rack, the D2D2500 unit should be kept in a horizontal
fashion, on a flat surface, at a location where there is no obstruction in the front and
back of the system for free air flow at the right temperature, and without any other
system or weight stacked on top of the system. In addition, the D2D2500 ships standard
with a power cord to connect to a PDU inside of a rack. If the unit needs to be powered
using a 110V receptacle (NEMA-15), the NEMA power cord (227099-001) must be
ordered separately. If the unit requires a local power cord, please check the power cord
matrix at: http://www.hp.com/go/powercordmatrix for the appropriate cord.
HP strongly recommends that D2D2500 units be installed inside a rack to ensure the
unit operates in normal operating parameters as defined in the Technical Specifications
section of this document.

Replication Supports data replication between StoreOnce appliances. Replication is automatic and appliances may
function as both replication targets and sources simultaneously with a license only being required for any
appliance acting as a target. Replication Manager provides an easier way to manage a large number of
devices being replicated across numerous sites and is included with the license. HP's OST plug-in
integrates deduplicated replication with Symantec backup applications and is also included with the
replication license.
Replication Manager software is available with the following replication licenses (EH991A, EH994A,
EH984A, EH999A, EH985A). In order to benefit from Replication manger, StoreOnce backup systems
require the latest firmware, which can be obtained via a free firmware upgrade by following the "Support &
Drivers" link on www.hp.com/go/d2d or by following the "HP Support & Drivers" link from: www.hp.com

NOTE: Direct tape offload is only available on legacy systems* and is not supported with NAS targets. The
recommended method of tape offload for virtual tape is to use the backup application to control and
manage the copy of virtual to physical media.
* Legacy D2D backup systems include ( EH993A, EH938A, EH939A, EH941A, EH942A, EJ001A, EJ002A)
*Actual results of data deduplication will vary with data type, change rates over time and backup methodologies used. Assuming
standard business data mix and extended on-disk retention, typically a 20:1 data deduplication ratio could be assumed with a weekly
full and daily incremental backup model.
