Deduplication reduces the amount of disk storage needed to retain and protect data by an average of 10 to 30 times, making disk a cost-effective alternative to tape. Data on disk is available online and onsite for longer retention periods, and restores become fast and reliable.
EMC Data Domain systems deduplicate data inline—during the backup and archive process—so that the data lands on disk already deduplicated, requiring a fraction of the disk space of the original dataset.
EMC Data Domain Deduplication Storage systems integrate easily with existing infrastructures and can be used seamlessly with a variety of data movers across both backup and archive workloads. This enables a single Data Domain system to be used for backup, archive, and recovery of the entire enterprise including Oracle, Microsoft, VMware, IBM I, and mainframe environments as well as file and email, database, and enterprise content management archiving, making Data Domain systems the ideal protection storage platform.
With Data Domain systems, organizations can replicate backup and archive data offsite faster, with minimal bandwidth for safe, tape-free disaster recovery. Data Domain systems provide flexible replication topologies to optimize your backups such as full system mirroring, selective, bidirectional, many-to-one, one-to-many, and cascaded.
Safety and Reliability
The EMC Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture provides the industry’s best defense against data integrity issues. Inline write and read verification protects against, and automatically recovers from, data integrity issues during data ingest and retrieval. Data Domain systems are the only storage systems that provide continuous fault detection and self-healing features to ensure reliable access and recovery to your data no matter what.
EMC Data Domain technology optimizes deduplication storage.
Data Invulnerability Architecture
EMC Data Domain systems are designed as the storage of last resort—built to ensure reliable recovery. The EMC Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture is built into every Data Domain system to provide the industry’s best defense against data integrity issues.
Inline write and read verification, continuous fault detection, and self-healing ensure that backup and archive data is accurately stored, available, and recoverable throughout its lifecycle on a Data Domain system.
Stream-Informed Segment Layout (SISL) Scaling Architecture
Data Domain systems provide industry leading performance while minimizing disk requirements thanks to the EMC Data Domain Stream-Informed Segment Layout (SISL) scaling architecture. Specifically, SISL leverages the continued advancement of central processing unit (CPU) performance to continuously increase Data Domain system performance by minimizing disk accesses required to deduplicate data. SISL deduplicates data inline by identifying duplicate data segments in memory, which minimizes disk usage. This enables Data Domain system throughput to be CPU-centric, not "spindle bound."
EMC Data Domain Global Compression
Take advantage of an exceptionally efficient, high-performance, inline deduplication technology combined with a local compression technique. The deduplication technology reduces data down to its raw essentials by pooling redundant patterns within a file, across files, and even within a block, only storing unique data segments. Local compression scans the unique data sequence across a local small window of comparison like a tape drive.
