Dell EMC announces new flash-enabled Data Domain appliances 

The new Data Domain family features four new models: DD6300, DD6800, DD9300, and DD9800.

The DD6300 is a turnkey, all-in-one appliance designed specifically for small and midrange customers.

The DD6800, DD9300, and DD9800 provided expanded capacity and features such as high availability to minimize downtime and ensure business continuity in the face of a sudden hardware failure.

The DD9800 is 7x more scalable, 1.5x faster and can support 5x more streams than the nearest competitor.

Dell EMC is set to make more announcements this week at the Dell EMC World 2016 conference here.

The company said its new Data Domain Cloud Tier system can deliver efficiency for tearing long-term retention of data to the cloud and increase capacity by 200 per cent with a maximum capacity of up to 150 petabytes managed by a single system.

Data Domain Cloud Tier, the company said, is the only protection storage to natively tier de-duplicated data to public, private, or hybrid clouds for long-term retention, including Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage and Virtustream Storage Cloud.

“Protecting the modern data center is a critical pillar of any IT transformation strategy,” said Beth Phalen, senior vice-president, and general manager,  data protection solutions, Dell EMC. “Business Agility requires customers to protect rapidly growing data sets and minimize downtime no matter what happens in their data centres.”

In conjunction with Dell EMC Avamar software, the new Data Domain appliances can access protection instances of virtual machines (VMs) 20 times faster.

Customers are able to boot up VMs using a protection copy of the virtual machine files (VMDKs) directly from Data Domain instead of needing to restore the VM to a separate primary storage system.

One Dell customer in the financial sector said the need for rapid data protection has become critical in many businesses.

“As the volumes of data that we manage grow, being able to tier data intelligently to more cost-efficient targets, such as the cloud, becomes more important to us,” said Anthony Gizzarelli, senior manager, backup and recovery operations and engineering, U.S-based insurance company AIG

“Protection storage is every bit as important to us as primary storage so we have relied on Dell EMC Data Domain for many years,” Gizzarelli said.

“Data protection has always been about the ‘race to zero’ in recovery time while balancing the cost to performance in the solution overall,” according to Jason Buffington, principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Between the VM-scenario enhancements, the addition of cloud-tier as an extension of the protection storage, and acceleration via its flash tier, Dell EMC is pulling all the levers that are on the leading edge for modern data protection in enterprises today.”
