HP Data Protector
EMC Data Domain Boost for HP Data Protector enables faster, more efficient backup and recovery.
Faster, More Efficient Backup and Recovery
Data Domain Boost for HP Data Protector distributes parts of the deduplication process to the backup server or HP client so only unique data is sent from the server or client to the EMC Data Domain system. Overall, this increases performance by 50 percent, reduces impact on the server by 20 to 40 percent, and reduces the required local area network (LAN) bandwidth by up to 80 to 99 percent.
Simplified Disaster Recovery
With Data Domain Boost for HP Data Protector, backup administrators can control replication between multiple Data Domain systems. This allows administrators to efficiently create disaster recovery copies over a wide area network (WAN) using EMC Data Domain Replicator as well as keep track of all the copies within the Data Protector catalog for simplified disaster recovery.
Advanced Load-Balancing and Failover
Data Domain Boost aggregates network links on the Data Domain system into a single group so multiple links appear as one to the backup server or HP client. The Data Domain system then transparently balances the backup load between links in the group. In addition, the automatic link failover mechanism keeps backup systems operational in case of temporary network glitches.
