EMC Data Protection Launch: Backup to the Future

Today we are announcing a new generation of Data Domain systems, major enhancements to the EMC Data Protection Suite, and exciting new Mozy capabilities. These new products and solutions will significantly strengthen our backup and archive leadership position in the data protection market.


Highlights include:


New Generation of Midrange Data Domain System and Enhanced App Integration

Our newest generation of midrange Data Domain systems – DD2500, DD4200, DD4500 and DD7200 - enables massive consolidation on the industry’s leading protection storage platform.  These new systems provide dramatic improvements from the previous generation including:


·       Up to 4x faster performance

·       Up to 10x more scalable

·       Up to 38% lower $/GB


In addition, we’ve expanded Data Domain for database and big data backup with support for:


·       SAP HANA via NFS

·       Oracle Exadata via Data Domain Boost for Oracle RMAN

·       SAP on Oracle via Data Domain Boost for Oracle RMAN


We’ve also expanded Data Domain for archive storage with 5 new archiving application integrations including Open Text – a leader in enterprise content management.


Major Enhancements to the EMC Data Protection Suite: Both Avamar 7 and NetWorker 8.1 deliver new capabilities focused on:


·       Deeper Integration with Primary and Protection Storage

·       Optimization for VMware Environments

·       Better Visibility and Control for Protection of Enterprise Applications


Avamar now supports file systems and NAS/NDMP backups directed to Data Domain systems.  For VMware, Avamar provides ‘VM Instant Access’, allowing a VM - booted from a Data Domain system - to be up and running in under 2 minutes. Avamar also adds a vSphere Web Client, so VMware administrators can run Avamar directly from vSphere.


NetWorker introduces new snapshot configuration and management for EMC arrays, and now supports Data Domain Boost over Fibre Channel - enabling 50% faster backups and 2.5x faster restores vs. VTL.  NetWorker also delivers a complete refresh for VMware backup, leveraging portions of Avamar technology.


New Capabilities for EMC Mozy: The introduction of Active Directory integration, in combination with enhanced storage management and keyless activation, makes managing and scaling MozyEnterprise® cloud backups even easier.
