Hewlett Packard Enterprise is dedicated to providing a rich portfolio of Backup, Recovery and Archiving (BURA) solutions for our customers. The HPE Data Agile Partner Program offers partners a programmatic framework to self-certify the interoperability of their applications across the entire HPE Storage portfolio of BURA products – including HPE StoreOnce Backup, HPE StoreAll Storage, and HPE StoreEver Tape.
The Data Agile Partner Program enables partners to learn about the HPE BURA portfolio, test and certify their applications in a dedicated HPE lab environment and take advantage of unique marketing opportunities. Program members also have access to specialized trainings and technical assistance.
Access to the Data Agile Partner program is for active AllianceOne members only. If you are a member sign in and get started now. If you are not a member, join AllianceOne now.
Provide powerful solutions to your customers and expand market opportunities through a partnership with HPE Storage.
HPE Storage provides a broad portfolio of market leading Backup, Recovery and Archive (BURA) products to address the data protection and archiving requirements of small-medium businesses (SMB) to enterprise customers. Becoming a Data Agile partner requires active membership in the HPE AllianceOne Program, and completed self-certification with one or more of the products in the HPE BURA product portfolio.
Our partner self-certification process enables you to collaborate closely with the HPE Data Agile Partner Lab, located in Houston, TX, USA. The Data Agile Lab is designed to work with partners who are market leaders in data protection, retention and archiving to certify on HPE storage products. This certification process consists of a collaborative effort between HPE and our partners to conduct development, testing, integration and qualification necessary to satisfy certification requirements. Certification is defined as passing all minimum acceptance testing as defined by HPE and our partners, such that all components of the combined solutions are sufficiently validated to interoperate.
The overall process for obtaining self-certification will generally include an on-site visit to the HPE Data Agile Partner Lab. We can also accommodate remote access to our lab for situations where on-site engagements are impractical. HPE engineers will work with you each step of the way to support your certification investment.
The HPE Data Agile Partner Lab environment consists of HPE SAN (FC and NAS) infrastructure, servers and storage components that partners can schedule to access to conduct certification testing. HPE provides lab setup and support resources before and during your visit. You will be responsible for providing engineering resources to facilitate the testing of your solution. Together, we will review the results and address issues prior to publishing compatibility and solution support.
Upon successfully completing the certification process, we ask you to update your Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) indicating support for HPE BURA storage products. We update HPE Data Agile Compatibility Matrix each month, and your solution is included once testing is complete, signifying support for your software application (www.hpe.com/storage/buracompatibility).
Ready to get started?
Step 1: Join Now
To become a member of the Data Agile Partner Program you must first be a member of the HPE AllianceOne Program. Click here to apply to the AllianceOne Program.
Register now for the HPE Data Agile Partner Program and tell us more about your solution and interest in HPE BURA Storage.
Admission into the program will require certification of your product with at least one of the HPE Backup and Recovery products: HPE StoreOnce Backup, and HPE StoreEver Tape.
Once your registration form has been submitted, reviewed and approved, you will be contacted by our HPE Data Agile Partner Lab Program Manager to initiate the self-certification process.
To begin, you will complete a Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) to ensure proper protection of our respective confidential information. This will be provided to you by the HPE Data Agile Partner Lab Program Manager.
Step 2: Testing in HPE Data Agile Partner Lab
Test Plan: Once the CDA is in place, your HPE Data Agile Partner Lab Program Manager will work with you to review your test plan and lab environment requirements (O/S version, hardware, special features, etc.). If you do not already have an established test plan, HPE will provide you examples of robust test plans as a benefit to enabling our Data Agile partners.
Scheduling Your Lab Visit: Your HPE Data Agile Partner Lab Program Manager will work with you to schedule the on-site lab visit to conduct your testing. On-site testing is recommended for most partners as it provides hands on experience and builds the best collaborative relationships with our lab engineers. Once scheduled, you will be provided information to coordinate your logistics for the trip.
Create Your Configuration Document: To facilitate your on-site lab visit, we will work with you to create a Configuration Details Document and a VPN Connections Details Document to ensure the smoothest possible lab experience.
On-Site Kick Off: Once you arrive, we will conduct a kick-off meeting with you to review your Configuration Detail and VPN Connections documents. We can also provide you with Minimum Acceptance Tests (MATs) to support your normal test processes.
Monitor: We will monitor your certification progress and collaboratively address any real time issues you may come across.
Step 3: Certification
Once certification has been completed, and you have listed the HPE storage certification on your site, we will document and publish your solution in the publicly viewable HPE Data Agile Compatibility Matrix (www.hpe.com/storage/buracompatibility), which is used by our customers to validate which ISV solutions are compatible with HPE products. At this time, you can list compatible HPE products in your Hardware Certification Lists (HCL).
Step 4: Data Agile Ready
You are now Data Agile Ready! You will be granted access to download the program logo for use with your product marketing activities. HPE can also support you with any press announcements you may want to make in conjunction with this certification.
Once your Data Agile membership is activated, a link to access the program insignia files will appear in the right navigation side bar of this page.
