EMC Elevates Data Protection Strategy

Written by Roy Mikes on Friday, 12 July 2013. Posted in EMC

EMC announced a broad array of new hardware and software products

EMC has announced upgrades to its hardware, software and cloud backup product portfolio that enable customers to deploy new Protection Storage Architectures that address today's and tomorrow's data protection challenges. The new products cut across the company's market leading Data Domain, Avamar, NetWorker and Mozy product lines.

So, what did they announced?

– New midrange Data Domain systems.
– Major enhancements to EMC Data Protection Suite for Avamar7
– Major enhancements to EMC Networker 8.1
– Enhanced Cloud Backup capabilities from Mozy

The New Midrange Data Domain Systems DD2500, DD4200, DD4500 and DD7200 delivers significant improvements compared to the old midrange systems claimed to deliver 4x faster performance, up to 10x more scalable, up to 3x more streams (540 data streams) and up to 38% lower cost-per gigabyte. The new Data Domain systems use the Intel Sandy Bridge processors. EMC has also added Data Domain backup integration with SAP’s HANA Studio and Oracle Exadata.

The Avamar product has undergone a full upgrade to version 7. Something I've been waiting for quite a while. EMC Avamar 7 now supports all major data center workloads being directed to Data Domain systems, with the addition of file system and NAS/NDMP backups. With this addition, all major data center workloads can now be protected by the combined solution. New Capabilities for Virtual Environments like managing image-level backup and recoveries from VMware vSphere Web Client. This allows VMware administrators to manage Avamar backup and recovery directly from a familiar interface. Self-service recovery and newly created VMs automatically inherit backup policies. Another cool future, Avamar 7 provides a new VM recovery feature called, VM Instant Access. This allows a virtual machine to be powered on directly from the backup. That means you have a virtual machine booted up in less than two minutes. Lastly, Avamar 7 adds NDMP backup support for Isilon. 

EMC NetWorker 8.1 introduces new integrated snapshot management, featuring a new wizard-based user interface, auto-discovery, and intelligent assignment of snapshot storage. Integrations with Data Domain systems are tightened, with Data Domain Boost support over Fibre Channel. This enables 50% faster backups and 2.5x faster restores compared to VTL-based configurations. Finally, NetWorker is delivering a complete refresh of its VMware support, leveraging Avamar technology services. I remember networker was called Legato.

Lastly Mozy. New Active Directory integration automatically create and organize users into groups based on AD attributes or security groups. Simplified storage management introduces new storage pools which means less time spent monitoring storage quotas at the individual machine level. Finally, accelerate user provisioning and backup client installation with keyless activation, resulting in greater scalability. 

All new EMC data Protection products are available from the third quarter of 2013 and are available within VSPEX Proven Infrastructures.
