HP iQuote Storage Product Introductions

February 25, 2013

After an extremely busy HP GPC event it is time to catch up on the additions we have made to HP iQuote Storage. We are happy to let you know that members of the HP StoreEasy, StoreOnce and StoreVirtual families are available in iQuote. A brief overview of each:


HP StoreOnce Backup systems reduce the amount of backup data you need to store by up to 95%, so with HP’s scale-out architecture you can pay-as-you-grow to retain up to 10 petabytes of data in a single pool. They provide automated backup and DR operations with all the features you’d expect from dedicated disk backup, and some you can only get from HP.

StoreEasyHP StoreEasy 1000 Storage is a new breed of efficient, secure, and highly available storage to simply address the file and application storage challenges of small to medium business, branch office, and workgroup environments. StoreEasy 1000 Storage, built on industry leading ProLiant DNA and Microsoft Windows Storage Server, integrates easily into new and existing environments with a straightforward, consistent management experience for IT generalists.


HP StoreVirtual Storage provides a virtualized pool of storage resources to deliver enterprise SAN functionality that enhances virtual environments, simplifies management, and reduces costs. Easy to deploy, grow and maintain, HP StoreVirtual Storage ensures that critical business data remain available. The innovative approach to storage provides a unique data protection level across the entire array, reducing vulnerability without driving up costs the way traditional SANs can.


HP GPC Event Las Vegas 2013

February 25, 2013

HP iQuote featured heavily at the HP Global Partner Conference last week in Las Vegas. It was great to see the momentum behind HP iQuote – Meg Whitman mentioned in her keynote that better sales tools were part of her strategy. This was followed by Dave Donatelli’s Enterprise Group Keynote where HP iQuote was a key deliverable:
