Deduplication and Backup and Recovery Software - EMC
HOPKINTON, Mass. – April 12, 2010 – EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that its flagship single controller system for large enterprises, the EMC® Data Domain® DD880, now doubles its maximum capacity, offering support for up to 7.1 petabytes of logical backup storage. EMC also introduced EMC Data Domain Encryption software, the industry’s first data at rest encryption solution for deduplication storage systems. This software option protects enterprise data in the event of theft or loss of disks and systems. EMC Data Domain Replicator software has also gained significant new features, including a “one-to-many” directory replication topology and breakthrough low bandwidth optimization for limited WANs and small sites, increasing bandwidth efficiencies by up to a hundred percent. Coupled with a steady pace of performance and capacity advances, these capabilities further enhance the disk-based backup leadership of EMC and provide significant and sustainable value to its customers.
Product Details and User Benefits
The expanded DD880 delivers up to 7.1 PB of logical storage, double its capacity at introduction in mid-2009, providing users greater backup and disaster recovery (DR) consolidation, further simplifying management and reducing operational expenses. Administrators can use the additional capacity to consolidate up to 180 concurrent backup jobs or extend the retention period when used as a replication target for up to 180 remote offices. The increase in capacity further minimizes the physical footprint, power and cooling required to protect large data sets in primary data centers and in DR sites.
Data Domain Encryption is a new software option that provides the industry’s first encryption of data at rest on deduplication storage, enabling organizations to enhance the security of their data and more easily pass security audits. DD Encryption seamlessly integrates with the Data Domain high-speed, inline deduplication process and provides administrator selectable 128-bit or 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms for encrypting all data before it is written to disk. With an inline approach, data never resides in a vulnerable, unencrypted state on the disk subsystem. This capability works with all Data Domain protocols and software options, and can be used with DD Replicator to send encrypted data over the WAN. Files that are retained on disk in a non-rewriteable and non-erasable format, as a long-term archive using EMC Data Domain Retention Lock software, can also be encrypted.
DD Replicator is now able to support a new ‘one-to-many’ directory replication topology, which enables users to send multiple copies of source system data to different DR sites. This delivers increased protection levels and gives the administrator the ability to reliably and efficiently replicate the same content across a distributed enterprise for QA, testing, development, training, and other uses. In addition, for enterprises with small Data Domain systems replicating to larger hub systems across low bandwidth networks, DD Replicator can further reduce the amount of data to be sent using a new low bandwidth optimization feature. This enables further reduction of the Replicator bandwidth, which already sends only deduplicated, compressed data, by up to 100%, leveraging an additional new delta compression technology. The introduction of both a ‘one-to-many’ replication topology and low bandwidth optimization further demonstrates EMC’s ability to deliver the most flexible, feature-rich and network-efficient multi-site disaster recovery solutions for backup and archive data. These features are included with the latest version of DD Replicator software. Data Domain system users that have purchased DD Replicator licenses and have an existing support contract can upgrade to this version for no extra charge.
"Enterprise customers today demand high-density, optimized storage solutions to safeguard and manage their unabated data growth. The expanded capacity of the Data Domain DD880 addresses enterprise customer needs for scalable storage systems for consolidation projects and extended retention policies. The addition of inline encryption for deduplicated data at rest offers all EMC Data Domain users an additional option for safeguarding their data."
- Robert Amatruda, Director, Data Protection and Recovery, IDC
"EMC is continuing to build upon the maturity, product concepts and architectures that have made Data Domain systems the unquestioned market leader in deduplication storage systems for backup and archive. In disk-based data protection, EMC is not only imagining the future more clearly than its competition, it is also out-executing their pace of development."
- Brian Biles, Vice President of Product Management, EMC Backup Recovery Systems Division
The expanded DD880 capacity, DD Replicator enhancements and DD Encryption will be generally available in the 2nd quarter of 2010. For more information about Data Domain deduplication storage systems, please visit www.datadomain.com.
