Storage OptimizerOpen in a New Window

Hi All,

I'm probably posting in the wrong area, we  currently trying a 60 day licence of Storage Optimizer 5.0 (Cut Down Version Of Control Point), one of the problems is that we are unable to get support (even basic documentation) as we dont have a SAID.

We have managed to get a copy of the install guide and have the product installed

However, we are having trouble using the RAA, we are unable to import as a new repository, it just sits on "Saving". then eventualy going back to the repository screen.

Any assistance would be apreciated

Business whitepaper: Turn disconnected data into connected intelligenceOpen in a New Window

Big Data is a hot topic in IT today but is predominantly focusses on how to successfully manage the challenge of growth. However, as discussed at the HP Software Forums – Insight 2014, a new style of IT is emerging. We need to pay attention to the detailed challenges and exactly how organisations can profit from this latest IT wave.


If you need a refresher session, indulge in this whitepaper; Profit from Big Data.

Data. It also describes how HP HAVEn, the industry’s leading Big Data platform, can help   you securely capture, analyse, and act upon 100 percent of the data available to you.”

Hi All,


Here is the Information Governance preentation from yesterdays User Forum in Melbourne. 




Backup or Archive....What is the difference?Open in a New Window

Okay folks, here's a question I want you to think about:


Is there a difference between a Backup and an Archive?


If there is, what is it an how does it affect the way you manage them?


Now, clearly, I have an opinion on the subject, however I want to hear your thoughts on the subject.


Another angle to consider is how the vast quantity of "Big Data" changes your approach to Backup/Archiving. 


You now need to assess all this data to determine if it should be retained or secured. How do you do that at the speed and scale required? 


Thought/Comments? Lets start talking about this because its a pretty big challenge and tools alone are not going to solve it.
