BackBox (Backup, Storage)

BackBox Software with Integrated QoreStor® is a software-defined secondary storage platform that provides various options, such as deduplication, replication, encryption, and cloud tiering. With this solution, the platform reduces storage requirements and costs, by replicating fast and secure to another BackBox VTC or to the cloud. By leveraging the cloud service capabilities for archiving and disaster recovery, BackBox® takes advantage of the simplicity, security, and redundancy of any cloud platform.

BackBox is Integrated with the Virtual Tape Controller (VTC)

BackBox Dedupe Software is running on the same server as the VTC. This allows the customer to use all the power of the VTC server and to minimize racking space.

Remote Replication for Disaster Recovery

Replicate only unique data to a remote site, reduce replication windows by 10 to 15 times, reduce network bandwidth requirements by 85% and shorten overall replication time.

Cloud Tier

Move and recover data from cloud storage quickly and easily with this policy-driven, seamless cloud extension.

Back Up to the Cloud

Back up directly to the cloud over your WAN, but with LAN-like speeds through source-side deduplication, whereas only the data changes are transmitted. Achieve recovery point objectives (RPOs) that are typical of on-premises deployments, even over the WAN.

Data security

Meet security requirements with built-in encryption at rest and compliant with FIPS 140-2. Encryption at rest uses industry-standard 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) keys.

Multi-tenancy and role-based access

Create storage groups easily — and containers within respective storage groups — to define separate storage policies and capacities. Create advanced user roles that allow more granular control over storage capabilities.

Cloud Global View

Manage all HPE NonStop BackBox deduplication instances in a single console, from anywhere, on any device, making HPE NonStop BackBox easy to use and to maintain.

Secondary Storage – Import/export support options

Current model tape drives—including the latest LTO tape drives—can be connected to BackBox VTC via SAS or FC. This type of connection allows the import of any physical tape content to virtual tape storage and the export of virtual tapes to HPE NonStop-readable physical media.

Secondary Storage – Physical tape support options

If the enterprise backup content needs to be consolidated across physical tape silos network, HPE NonStop BackBox VTC R3 can back up or archive virtual tape images to EBS servers.
