Hewlett-Packard backs up for disaster recovery

Integrated into a thin-server appliance, the disaster recovery software lets customers back up business data stored on PC hard drives while enabling IT departments to reduce spent on recovery time after PC data problems.

The software provides automatic data and disaster protection and disaster recovery for laptop and desktop PCs and 24-hour instant access to backups anywhere in the world, according to HP.

The software protects any PC clients running Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0+ Workstation or 2000 Pro and runs on Windows for Express Networks.

If files are damaged or deleted, users can restore using drag-and-drop from AutoBackup 'network drive' and the disaster recovery tool, HP CD writer.

The first two products in the software family are the PC25 and the PC100. The PC25 is for between 10 and 25 users. The PC25 stores up to 60Gbytes of client data. The PC100 is designed to protect up to 100 client machines and stores up to 240Gbytes of client data.

The software runs on any network supporting TCP/IP protocol; 10/100Base-T is directly supported, and other infrastructures require a bridge to support the appliance.

The HP SureStore AutoBackup PC25 and PC100 products will be available from July 1.

Pricing starts at $7000 for PC25 users and $16,000 for PC100 users.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
