Data Domain – Backup Solution
EMC Data Domain systems are highly scalable deduplication appliances designed to reduce the amount of disk storage needed to retain and protect data by an average of 10-30 times. This makes for a cost effective alternative to tape for protecting backup and/or archive data. Data on disk is available online and onsite for longer retention periods, and restores and retrievals are fast and reliable. Storing only unique data on disk also means that that it can be cost effectively replicated over to remote sites for safe, reliable tape-free disaster recovery.
- High-Speed Deduplication – Deduplication reduces the amount of disk storage needed to retain and protect data by an average of 10 to 30 times, making disk a cost-effective alternative to tape. Data on disk is available online and onsite for longer retention periods, and restores become fast and reliable. EMC Data Domain systems deduplicate data inline—during the backup and archive process—so that the data lands on disk already deduplicated, requiring a fraction of the disk space of the original dataset.
- Seamless Integration – EMC Data Domain Deduplication Storage systems integrate easily with existing infrastructures and can be used seamlessly with a variety of data movers across both backup and archive workloads. This enables a single Data Domain system to be used for backup and recovery of the entire organisation including Oracle, Microsoft, VMware, IBM and mainframe environments as well as file and email, database and content management archiving.
- Network-Efficient Replication – with Data Domain systems, organisations can replicate backup and archive data offsite faster, with minimal bandwidth for safe, tape-free disaster recovery. Data Domain systems provide flexible replication topologies to optimise your backups such as full system mirroring, selective, bidirectional, many-to-one, one-to-many, and cascaded.
- Safety and reliability – the EMC Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture provides the industry’s best defence against data integrity issues. Inline write and read verification protects against, and automatically recovers from, data integrity issues during data ingest and retrieval. Unlike other enterprise arrays or file systems, continuous fault detection and self-healing features protect data throughout its lifecycle on all Data Domain systems.
