VMware vSphere Data Potection Advanced
EMC Data Domain Boost for VMware vSphere Data Protection (VDP) Advanced provides advanced integration between VMware environments and EMC Data Domain systems.
Direct Backup from VMware vCenter
Data Domain Boost for VDP Advanced enables VMware administrators to back up directly from vCenter to a Data Domain system. Data Domain Boost distributes parts of the deduplication process to VDP Advanced, enabling client-side deduplication so only unique data is sent to the Data Domain system. This enables VMware administrators to protect all virtual machines (VMs) and mission-critical applications via image-level backup or protect Microsoft applications via guest-level backup.
Simplified Disaster Recovery
With Data Domain Boost for VDP Advanced, VMware administrators can control replication between multiple Data Domain systems. This allows admins 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 VDP Advanced 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 VDP Advanced. 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.
