Extending the Backup and Recovery Ecosystem: EMC Offers New Integration with VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced 5.5

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.

A Decade of Dedupe…and Data Domain

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.

$2.1 Million in Savings and 40X Faster Backups – Fulton County Gets the Best of Both Worlds

Jen Sorenson

When it comes to data, is there anything that beats both savings and speed? What about saving $2.1 million and performing your backups at 40X faster than before? Now that’s truly the best of both worlds. Fulton County, the largest county in the state of Georgia, experienced this Daily Double combination when they decided to standardize on EMC FultonCountytechnologies including Avamar, Data Domain and  VMAX 20K.

With nearly a million residents and counting, in addition to 6,000 IT users in 45 organizations, Fulton County needed a top-notch backup and recovery infrastructure and simple management of their data protection environment. The amount of technology used by the county’s courthouses, health and human services, libraries, public safety, water resources and emergency management agencies is simply staggering.
