EMC releases new backup solutions
New Data Domain and Avamar solutions to offer high performance deduplication and backup
EMC has announced new Data Domain and EMC Avamar deduplication systems and software, to offer high performance, scalable backup solutions that are tightly integrated with each other, backup software and enterprise applications.
The new systems are designed to offer backup and recovery that is capable of end-to-end integration with more advanced IT infrastructures, to overcome the problems of legacy storage and back-up limiting the capabilities of newer technology.
The EMC Data Domain DD990 deduplication storage system is the world's fastest single controller deduplication storage system, with six times faster performance and three times greater capacity than its nearest competitor.
The new Data Domain software broadens Data Domain archiving capabilities for extended retention and regulatory compliance, expands the Data Domain Boost ecosystem and enhances the Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture.
Avamar 6.1 deduplication software and system delivers the industry's fastest backup and recovery performance for VMware environments, eclipsing the performance levels of its nearest competitor by 3x on backups and a staggering 30x on recoveries. Avamar 6.1 also simplifies backup management for key business critical applications with new support for SAP, Sybase and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and enhanced support for Oracle. In addition, Avamar 6.1 further increases its support for virtual environments with expanded Microsoft Hyper-V features.
William Jenkins, president, EMC Backup Recovery Systems Division commented: "EMC is delivering high performance scalable appliances that integrate with each other, with backup software and with enterprise applications. Customers embarking upon transformation of IT have asked us for these capabilities because it is essential that backup infrastructures align to these new IT infrastructures. Over time, traditional backup products that do not take this end-to-end view, in effect, paint users into a corner. Our mission is to give our customers the flexibility to architect their backup infrastructures strategically, leveraging the broad product choices and integration capabilities that only EMC can deliver, and then enable them to continually evolve their backup and recovery to help drive their IT transformation efforts."
