Data Domain Operating System Powering EMC Data Domain Deduplication Storage Systems
A personalized view to comprehensive content for specific products and solutions
The EMC Data Domain Operating System delivers industry-leading speed and efficiency through variable-length deduplication. With performance up to 58.7 terabytes per hour, organizations can meet the most challenging backup windows while reducing backup and archive storage requirements by 10 to 30 times, making disk a cost-effective alternative to tape.
DD OS enables EMC Data Domain systems to integrate seamlessly with existing infrastructures including leading backup, archive, and enterprise applications. A Data Domain system can protect the entire enterprise including backup for Oracle, Microsoft, VMware, IBM i, open systems, big data and mainframe environments as well as file and email, database, enterprise content management, and virtual machine archiving.
With the DD OS, organizations can replicate backup and archive data off-site 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.
Reliability and Security
The Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture is core to DD OS and is built into every system, providing 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, retained, and recoverable or accessible throughout its lifecycle on a Data Domain system. Combined with the ability to meet compliance regulations and security requirements, no other storage system provides this level of protection.
DD OS provides secure multitenancy, which delivers data isolation for enterprises and service providers looking to deploy Data Domain systems in a private or public cloud. With secure multitenancy, a Data Domain system logically isolates tenant data, ensuring that each tenant’s data is only visible and accessible to them. Multitenant management and monitoring enables chargeback, trending, and tenant-level reporting.
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."
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.
