HP puts its disaster-tolerant capabilities to the test
At a high-tech ballistics center managed by National Technical Systems in Camden, Arkansas, HP simulated a gas leak using real explosives that resulted in a very real explosion and datacenter destruction.
What was blown up? Products from the entire spectrum of HP products, including:
HP Integrity servers
HP StorageWorks products
HP Software, HP ProCurve networking
HP ProLiant servers running five operating environments—HP-UX, HP OpenVMS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Microsoft® Windows Server 2003
HP Integrity NonStop servers
Every system failed-over flawlessly after the explosion—with all HP solutions resuming full IT services in 13 seconds to less than two minutes.
With proof like this, you know you can count on HP products and solutions for disaster recovery if and when you experience a site outage of any kind.
Beyond bulletproof: seeing is believing
The disaster-proof demonstration builds on the original HP StorageWorks “Bulletproof” video—where an HP StorageWorks team literally fired a bullet through an HP StorageWorks XP Disk Array. This proves once again that when downtime is not an option for your mission-critical applications, HP offers data protection when it counts.
