If, like many small business firms, you are sharing a broadband connection among
a group of loosely connected PCs or Macs (peer-to-peer networking), you need the
peace of mind of a secure backup solution for your files and an easy way to share
those files with your colleagues and clients. The HP StorageWorks X510 Data Vault
gives you all that and more. While there are many reasons to make the HP Data Vault
your backup solution, here are the top four:
Automated backups, easy file restoration, hot swapping and quick setup (plug in the power cord,
connect Ethernet cable, press the power button and it is ready to go in 60 seconds).

features and benefits
With the HP Data Vault, you can automatically centralize, share and access
data remotely using any internet-connected computer. The HP Data Vault also

off-the-shelf 3.5” SATA I or SATA II drive.
Add external storage by using the 4 USB ports
(1 front, 3 back) and one eSATA external port7

network and discovers PCs with Windows Home Server® connector software
installed, and then backs them up entirely. The HP Data Vault will back up files

Vault set up
Setting up the HP Data Vault
is easy. The unit comes with
a power cable, Ethernet
(RJ-45) cable, software and
documentation. The set up
poster included with the HP
Data Vault illustrates the two
simple steps (hardware and
software) to get started.
You will need:
•One or more computers running Microsoft® Windows®
Vista, Windows® XP,
Windows® MCE or Mac®
OS X 10.5 or later (for any
Macs on the network).
Note: Up to 10 PC clients
and Macs are supported.
•A router with DHCP enabled
to provide an automatic IP
address to the server
•A broadband connection,
such as DSL or cable, for
remote access functionality
•A 100 Mbps to 1000 Mbps
(Gigabit Ethernet) wired
network connection
Hardware set up
Simply plug the power cord
into the HP Data Vault and
the other end into an electrical
outlet. Connect one end of the
Ethernet cable to the HP Data
Vault and the other to an
Ethernet port on your router.
Press the power button on the
back of the HP Data Vault, and
it is ready to go in 60 seconds.
Software installation
The first installation must be
on a Windows computer.
Subsequent installations can
be on a Windows or Mac
computer. Insert the software
installation disk into a network
computer and follow the online
instructions to install the HP
Data Vault. Repeat the software
installation on each network
computer running either
Windows® or Mac® OS X 10.5
or later.
For better efficiency, Microsoft® Windows Home Server® backup software supports
de-duplication—it recognizes identical files (across all computers) and will only
save a single copy of redundant files, while keeping track of multiple versions by
date and originating PC.
