The need for secure data retention is a fact of doing business in the information age. HP 3PAR Virtual Lock gives you an efficient and cost-effective way to comply with internal governance and provides a foundation for performing electronic discovery (eDiscovery).
HP 3PAR Virtual Lock prevents deletion of virtual volumes (including thin volumes created with HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning software) and volume copies (such as those created with HP 3PAR Virtual Copy or HP 3PAR Full Copy software) for a specified period of time. Applying a user-configurable retention period, Virtual Lock secures volumes and copies so they cannot be deleted, even by a HP 3PAR StoreServ user with the highest level privileges.
When coupled with reservationless, non-duplicative, read-only virtual copies (snapshots), Virtual Lock enables you to retain frozen, point-in-time copies of your data to assist internal data retention and simplify compliance with internal governance procedures.
