Over the past 10 years, Data Domain systems have helped numerous enterprise customers transform their backup, archiving and disaster recovery with high-speed deduplication. Today, we are excited to announce the new Data Domain DD2200 deduplication storage system, which provides no-compromise data protection for midmarket customers.
With the new DD2200 EMC midmarket customers can now:
Backup 36 TB in under 8 hours with 4.7 TB/hr ingest performance via DD Boost
Protect up to 860 TB logical capacity in 2U with up to 17.2 TB usable capacity
Simultaneously support up to 60 backup/archive streams
What all of this boils down to is an affordable protection storage system with enterprise-class benefits – optimized for small to midsize enterprises. This means midmarket customers can now:
Reduce data protection storage requirements by 10 to 30x
Building on the core strengths of OneFS 7.0 — simplicity, massive scalability, predictable performance and unmatched efficiency — I am excited to announce OneFS 7.1, previously known as project “Waikiki,” is generally available. As I previewed in May, OneFS 7.1 is designed for organizations not only trying to maintain a traditional robust data center, but those driving new business growth through the deployment of next-generation applications and workflows.
To get the tastiest, healthiest produce, it’s imperative that fruits and vegetables arrive at their final destination without delay. As one of the UK’s largest distributors of fresh produce, Minor, Weir & Willis (MWW) knows this like no other. So when Rajinder Gill, Chief Financial Officer at MWW, concluded that an unreliable IT infrastructure was hampering productivity and efficiency, delay was not an option.
“Every time our system went down, we were forced to process every sales order and every receipt manually. Productivity suffered.” Rajinder told us in a recent interview.
Upon close inspection, MWW concluded that its ERP infrastructure — comprising disparate servers and direct-attached storage that lacked a centralized view of logistics and distribution data — was unreliable and simply could not scale. As a result, downtime and data duplication were common and business users were making distribution decisions with information that wasn’t always current or consistent across the company.
Just last month, Data Domain – and dedupe technology – officially crossed the 10-year mark. It’s not often that a product or a technology completely reinvents an industry, but with over 33 million tapes replaced and 26 exabytes of data now protected by Data Domain systems, that’s just what Data Domain and EMC did to backup. In fact, last year Data Domain systems shipped with more capacity than in the first eight years combined, proving that customers are finding more value in these systems than ever before.
In early 2006, there were still only two vendors shipping deduplication products: Data Domain and, interestingly enough, Avamar. Just a year later, over 20 vendors had jumped on the bandwagon offering various iterations of “deduplication” products. Some were, in fact, just data compression or “Single Instance Storage” (SIS) products, but the fact that everyone hung the deduplication label on their products showed how hot the technology had become. Even if you really didn’t have a deduplication product to sell—you still at least had to have a deduplication story(sometimes it was just an explanation of why you couldn’t do it). Customer adoption rates reflect exactly what was happening.
