CTO Core Technologies Division at EMC

“The cloud– it’s all fun and games until somebody loses a job.” – IT administrator at a large financial institution.

IT teams struggle with finding the right first step to the cloud. Management tells them to “buy some cloud for data protection,” without specifying which cloud, how to protect the data, or what workload to move. Unfortunately, some teams make their best guess… and guess wrong. What should you do?

Time sure flies when you’re not worrying about your backups. It was a little over a year ago when VMware announced their new vSphere Data Protection (VDP) backup software and virtual appliance powered by EMC Avamar. This collaboration between VMware and EMC has proved mutually beneficial for our customers and partners. Adoption has been growing steadily. Then earlier this year in February, VDP Advanced was launched featuring a larger capacity virtual appliance and two application-specific agents to target a larger segment of the market. Customer feedback has been excellent, and we’re ready for the next phase of expansion.

Today at VMworld 2013 Europe, VMware announced the release of vSphere Data Protection Advanced 5.5 with the latest data protection capabilities that provide increased scalability, reliability and disaster recovery. VDP Advanced now supports the ability to store backup data directly to an EMC Data Domain deduplication storage system. This provides VMware customers significantly more scalability and reliability as provided by the industry’s leading choice for protection storage: EMC Data Domain systems.
