After three years of waiting HPE released Data Protector 10 as a successor version 9. While it shares most of its features if offers a renovated security framework, revised support matrix and parts of the new Web-based UI which features the Consolidated Scheduler and Dashboard. While the existing GUI is still in the product, the new Web-based UI will evolve quickly into the future with the goal to replace it.
If you’re planning to upgrade, please keep in mind to upgrade your existing license keys to the new version first. This requires an active support contract (SAID). As usual the new software offers a 60 day grace period for new and existing customers.
