  • Page 2: Executive Summary

    Executive summary This paper presents an HP technical blueprint for building mezzanine backup-restore solutions, which include HP StorageWorks raid arrays, tape libraries, and software. The HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 1500 (MSA1500) controller shelf is a 2-Gb Fibre Channel storage system for the entry-level to midrange storage area network (SAN). It reduces the complexity, expense, and risk of SAN deployments in heterogeneous server environments.

    Synergy of components This solution uses proven, customer-accepted, fault-tolerant technology with the option to add additional system and data reliability. There is no new technology to learn; it has the look and feel of primary storage. Implementing a mezzanine backup-restore solution adds flexibility and performance to an existing data protection system.

    Scaling-growth-flexibility What happens if I already own a tape library? This mezzanine backup-restore solution supports any MSL or ESL tape library that is supported by the EBS. See the for a list of EBS supported EBS Hardware/Software Compatibility Matrix tape libraries. What if I want to back up more servers? Performance is heavily dependent on the size and types of applications being backed up.
