Autonomy Data Protection Solution Passes 10,000 Customer Milestone Autonomy LiveVault's Unique Meaning-Based Technology Allows Customers to Store and Retrieve Data Based on Contextual Understanding
CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomy, an HP Company, today announced that over 10,000 businesses are using its LiveVault product for fully managed cloud-based, server data protection, storage, and management. These organizations rely on LiveVault for a turnkey and secure data protection service with offsite backup, long term retention, and disaster recovery in the cloud.
LiveVault backs up more than 37,000 servers and millions of files daily and manages more than nine petabytes of data globally. The product protects data from Windows® and Linux operating systems, Microsoft® Exchange, SQL, and Oracle, as well as recently added support for Network Attached Storage platforms. It also eliminates the complexity and cost of plug-ins or third-party tools.
Some of the world's largest financial service institutions, government organizations, and several thousand small and medium enterprises rely on LiveVault to protect their data. Organizations such as Robbins & Myers, Inc., Stream Realty Partners, L.P. and Verifone use LiveVault's cloud-based services to store, back up, protect and recover massive repositories of data. LiveVault enables customers to take full advantage of a highly scalable, globally distributed, secure, and fault tolerant storage grid.
Additionally, LiveVault now supports data protection for Network Attached Storage platforms, so customers can back up their CIFS (Common Internet File System) file shares. Enterprise backup customers who currently use HP Data Protector 7, HP's on-premises data protection solution for physical and virtual servers, can now also take full advantage of integrated cloud backup and recovery through its integration with LiveVault.
"Jamestown Properties has been using the Live Vault solution for nearly five years and we would definitely recommend it for companies seeking a flexible and scalable solution to protect their critical business data," said Chuck Niswonger, IT Director at Jamestown Properties, a leading real estate and investment management company. "During that time, our interaction with the Sales and Technical Support staff has been top notch. From the technical side, having appropriately-sized Turbo Restore Appliances on site allows us to recover files within a few minutes of receiving a Help Desk call from a frantic user. We have also successfully used the Live Vault solution to restore entire servers – a more lengthy process, but doable as a result of our reliable backup solution."
"Since the start of our partnership with Autonomy nearly 10 years ago, we have received top-quality support, a wealth of new opportunities, and have experienced a significant increase in incremental client revenue," said Ryan Overtoom, Partner of Infrastructure Services at Sikich. "We have hundreds of clients using the Autonomy LiveVault solution, who cite the simplicity, reliability and extensive capabilities as key benefits. We look forward to where this partnership takes us in the future."
LiveVault is a key component of Autonomy's fast, flexible, and cost-effective Data Protection suite, which also includes HP Data Protector solution for physical or virtual server's data backup and HP Connected Backup, a data backup solution for laptops, and desktops, with access to protected data via mobile devices. HP Data Protector, LiveVault and Connected Backup are also part of Autonomy's Protect suite of solutions for archiving, compliance, eDiscovery, enterprise content management, and information governance.
Autonomy's Protect solutions apply meaning-based computing for advanced analytics, categorization, and clustering to all types of data, including rich and social media, to allow organizations to intelligently secure and act on data. Autonomy's Data Protection solutions allow enterprises to back up and restore data based upon an understanding of concepts and ideas in information, and more effectively fulfill regulatory compliance, archiving, and litigation requirements.
"Data backup and recovery isn't simply about storing and encrypting data, it's about protecting what's most important to the enterprise – information – and putting that data to work for you," said David Jones, Chief Executive Officer, Data Protection and Emerging Technologies, Autonomy, an HP Company. "With LiveVault, our 10,000-plus customers have moved beyond simple backup and recovery and are now utilizing a fully automated and meaning-based solution that helps them solve problems and create business advantages."
