HP NonStop storage products let you take advantage of a variety of devices for cost-effective high-performance, high-volume storage and backup and also provide innovative storage management software.

HP NonStop BackBox® Virtual Tape Controller (VTC)

The BackBox Virtual Tape Controller (VTC) allows you to protect your NonStop server’s data by backing it up to a  storage device or storage management system.   While the BackBox VTC can be used as a stand-alone virtual tape system with internal storage, its real strength is in its integration with HP StoreOnce or when used with another centralized management solution.

The BackBox software that runs on the VTC and on the NonStop server host is part of the ETI-NET family of virtual tape-based products for HP NonStop systems.  This product is now available from HP for J-series or H-series platforms.

HP NonStop Storage CLIM (Cluster I/O Module)

The Storage CLIM is at the heart of the HP NonStop storage subsystem for targeted NonStop platforms. Standard serial-attached SCSI (SAS) provides the technology and interconnect for internal NonStop storage subsystems. The Storage CLIM also supports Fibre Channel interconnect for external HP Enterprise storage and HP SAN connectivity.

The Storage CLIM (Cluster I/O Module), along with the IP CLIM and the Telco CLIM, are part of the next-generation I/O infrastructure for HP Integrity NonStop platforms that run the HP Integrity NonStop J-Series.

The Storage CLIM supports encryption of drives via the Volume Level Encryption (VLE) software option. All storage devices connected through the Storage CLIM can make use of VLE including HDDs, SSDs, and SAN disk array LUNs.
