DD Boost ecosystem for ViPR and Veeam Backup
Highlights of this release; Data Domain Operating System (DD OS) 5.5.1
The EMC Data Domain Operating System delivers speed and efficiency through variable-length deduplication. With performance up to 31 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 backup, archive, and enterprise applications. A Data Domain system can protect the entire enterprise including backup for Oracle, Microsoft, VMware, IBM i, open systems, and mainframe environments as well as file and email, database, enterprise content management, and virtual machine archiving.
Recently EMC support besides ViPR integration DD Boost for Veeam backup
EMC ViPR is a lightweight software platform that transforms your storage into a simple, extensible, and open platform to meet new, cloud-scale workloads. ViPR lets you deliver on-premises, fully automated storage services efficiently, and easily. In this DD OS release ViPR eliminates complexity by automating the provisioning process of Data Domain. Data Domain can be provisioned as NAS protection storage for archiving supporting both NFS and CIFS. Leveraging ViPR’s storage-as-a-service catalog, Data Domain Management Center and Data Domain systems, enables admins to provide their customers with on-demand data protection services.
As mentioned support for Veeam further expands the DD Boost ecosystem. DD Boost for Veeam enables backup administrators to back up directly to a Data Domain system. DD Boost distributes parts of the deduplication process to the backup server or Veeam client so only unique data is sent from the server or client to the Data Domain system, improving backup performance by 50 percent and reducing bandwidth requirements. This enables fast, efficient protection of virtual machines (VMs). DD Boost for Veeam is supported over both IP and Fibre Channel.
