HP Data Protector Express 6.0
Overview
HP Data Protector Express backup and recovery software is easy to install, easy to use and easy to manage. It is designed specifically
for smaller organizations to enable robust, yet simple, protection for single machines or small networks in Windows and Linux
environments.
Each server license includes all the features of Data Protector Express. This makes licensing, budgeting and purchasing the backup and
recovery software simple, predictable and excellent value.
Protection is delivered for file servers, application servers and Windows XP, Vista and 7 machines. Data Protector Express makes
backup to disk and tape very easy and also supports backup to CD/DVD media. Powerful features such as D2Any2Any backup, Mailbox
level protection for Exchange 2010, Bare Metal Network Disaster Recovery and self-tuning parallel data streams minimize backup and
recovery times without compromising ease of use.

Individual Exchange 2010 Mailboxes can be restored without restoring the entire Exchange
database.
Flexible backup device
location, management
and sharing

machines in the Backup Domain and any machine is able to act as local media server for high
performance backup or as or network media server for consolidated backup.
Support for multi-drive and multi-slot backup targets (tape libraries, VTLs and Data Protector
Express Virtual Libraries) that can be configured using the precise number of drives and media slots
to meet backup needs rather than to match the drive and slot licensing of the backup software.
Automatic device discovery to easily identify available backup targets.
Simplicity, designed
specifically for smaller
organizations
Easy to install, expand, license and manage, without training, using a simple graphical interface
which provides the same view of the entire Data Protector Express Backup Domain, no matter which
machine it is run on.
A small number of powerful Wizards for most common tasks.
Pre-defined and customizable media rotation schemes to enable backup versions, recovery points
and media to be easily managed.
Backup to disk

services such as backup data deduplication and replication.
Easily integrate disk backup with tape using the D2Any2Any feature.
High frequency, high
performance, automated
backup
Can be scheduled to backup automatically each year, month, week, day, hour or even each minute,
in conjunction with a disk backup target or tape library, to manage exposure to data loss.
Self tuning parallel backup streams feature can multiplex up to 8 concurrent data streams per
device to keep high performance backup devices streaming.
High performance catalog scales as environments grow.

strong encryption keys that are simply managed by Data Protector Express.
Multi tier backup and
recovery (D2Any2Any)
Take advantage of the complementary benefits of disk and tape as backup targets.

Hardware
Prerequisites
Most operating systems list both minimum and recommended system requirements. As a general rule, if
your system meets the minimum requirements for the operating system, it will also meet the minimum
system requirements for Data Protector Express. However, for better performance, we recommend that
your system exceeds the operating system's recommended requirements and has at least the following:
300MB of hard disk space for Data Protector Express application
1GB of hard disk space for Data Protector Express catalog and disaster recovery images (minimum) see note below
CD drive for Data Protector Express installation (recommended)
CD/DVD writer or a HP tape device for use with the Data Protector Express Bare Metal Disaster
Recovery feature
VGA display with 1024x768 resolution (minimum)
NOTE: The space required for the Data Protector Express catalog can vary from megabytes (MB) to tens or
even hundreds of gigabytes (GB). The size of the catalog is determined by a number of factors including the
number of files backed up, the length of the names of the files backed up, the directory structure of the
protected files and the number of versions kept of protected files. Space is also required for Windows PE
disaster recovery ISO files. Each of these DR images is about 250MB so as more DR images are stored the
space required will increase. The Data Protector Express catalog should be stored on reliable disk and
backed up periodically.

Interoperability and licensing
Distribution
With Data Protector Express 6.0, you have the option to receive the software either as a media kit or via
eDelivery. If the eDelivery option is chosen, the software is downloaded. eDelivery and media kit delivery
use the same web-based service to acquire the license key. Each part number is available as a media kit or
via eDelivery. The part numbers are:
xxxxxBAE for eDelivery
xxxxxB for a media kit
Language support
The user interface can be set to English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified

Documentation
The latest documentation is available on the HP Data Protector Express website. These are in English and
in PDF format. Please see http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotectorexpress/manuals
Software Licensing
The number of servers enabled for protection is controlled by the licenses added. There are no licenses
required for the protection of machines running Windows XP, Vista and 7 operating systems. The software
includes an embedded evaluation license which activates the product in evaluation mode for 60 days from
the installation of the first machine in the Data Protector Express Backup Domain. In evaluation mode up to
10 servers can be protected. When a permanent license key(s) is entered, the number of servers enabled
for protection depends upon the number and type of license key(s) entered. The permanent license key(s)
can be entered at any time during or after the 60 day evaluation period. All jobs, settings and logs created
during the evaluation period are maintained when the permanent license key(s) is added. If no permanent
license is added the software ceases to work after 60 days. It is recommended the permanent license keys
are obtained and entered as soon as possible.
Licenses can be stacked. This means the initial installation can include a license for 1, 3 or 10 servers as
required. To protect more servers, additional licenses for 1, 3 or 10 servers are stacked on top of the initial
license. For example stacking a 3 server pack license (TC331BAE) on top of a 1 server pack license
(TC330BAE) enables all the functionality of Data Protector Express for 4 servers.
License key redemption,
management and entry
Data Protector Express license keys are administered through an the HP License Key Delivery Service at
http://www.webware.hp.com. Each eDelivery or media kit product includes a License Key Entitlement
Certificate. This contains an Order Number that is exchanged for a license key to enable protection for the
number of server licenses purchased. Once the license key has been obtained it is essential to store it
securely since it cannot be replaced.
HP Passport is required
for the HP License Key
Delivery Service
HP has built the HP Passport (HPP) functionality into the License Key Delivery Service. HPP is HP's single
sign-in service that enables customers to register once, then logon with HPP-enabled websites using a
single log-on. Data Protector Express customers with an existing HPP account can use this to enter the
License Key Delivery website. Customers without a HPP account, can easily create a HPP account. For more
information on HP Passport, please go to: https://ovrd.external.hp.com/rd/passport-faq
License key entry
Product licenses are easily managed and added by selecting 'Licenses' from the Data Protector Express
'Help' pull down menu in the user interface.
