Dell EMC Data Domain Boost for Hortonworks provides Hadoop administrators with complete control over their own backup and recovery plan to protect their Hadoop data.

Complete Application Owner Control
Data Domain Boost seamlessly integrates with Hortonworks via the Hadoop cluster console. With Data Domain Boost for Hortonworks, Hadoop administrators backup to Data Domain system directly through Hadoop’s native utilities, and a set of backup CLI commands. Since no additional backup application is required, application owners keep complete control of Hadoop backup and 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 Hadoop server. 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.
