EMC Delivers No-Compromise Data Protection for the Midmarket with New Data Domain DD2200

Doug Ingraham

Sr. Director of Product Management, Data Protection and Availability Division at EMC

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
  • Achieve network-efficient disaster recovery with Data Domain Replicator
  • Gain reliable recovery with the Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture
  • Speed backups by 50% with Data Domain Boost to meet increasingly stringent SLAs
  • Easily integrate with existing backup and archiving applications
  • Optimize data protection via advanced integration with the newly enhanced EMC Data Protection Suite
  • Reduce cost through consolidation of backup and archive work loads


Geisinger Health System Trusts EMC to Protect Patient Data Perfectly

EMC Pulse

When you go skydiving, you have confidence that your parachute is going to open. Geisinger Health System needs that same level of confidence when doctors tap into electronic medical records (EMRs). Any hesitation and it could impact the care patients receive. When Geisinger started having reliability issues with its previous storage solution, it knew it needed to do something about it.Geisinger_Pulse

We talked to Will Sanders, Senior Technology Specialist and Storage Architect at Geisinger about the situation. Geisinger was worried these downtime issues could disrupt patient care if they weren’t resolved, and quickly. Imagine a doctor, bedside with a patient, being unable to get critical medical information because the storage system stalled. Unthinkable.


Eleven Years Strong: EMC Strengthens Object Strategy with New Atmos Compliance, Security and Flexibility Options

Mark O'Connell

Atmos Chief Technology Officer at EMC

Object storage is the standard for managing today’s explosive growth in unstructured content.  EMC knows this best – pioneering object storage over a decade ago with the release of EMC Centera, the enduring leader in compliance archiving. In 2008, EMC broadened its portfolio in object storage with the introduction of EMC Atmos — an industry leader for cloud storage and next-generation Web, mobile and REST-based applications. However, object storage is more than just scalable storage. What truly differentiates object storage is that its core strengths of simplicity, scalability and efficiency can be optimized for specific use cases – and that’s exactly what today’s Atmos announcement brings to the table.


Introducing the Next Generation VNX… And What It Means For Customers

Eric Herzog

SVP, Product Management and Product Marketing, Unified Storage Division at EMC

You’ve no doubt heard about the revolutionary new VNX Series announced today during an around-the-world, 24-hour live broadcast from Milan Italy… (here’s a link to view the broadcast).

Here’s what a partner had to say…

And here’s what customers are saying about real-world results…

So how do you build midrange storage that can deliver up-to thousands of virtual machines per array, supporting mixed application workloads while keeping costs down? On the server side, Intel is driving performance with multi-core technology. Our challenge was to design a storage solution that exploits multi-core technology to unlock the full power of flash while leveraging the cost benefits of near-line disk drive capacities.


EMC VNX Helps Van Meter Bust Through Cloud Roadblock, Transform Productivity

EMC Pulse

The housing market at times can be ruthless; the economic downturn in early 2013 was exhibit number one. Those companies serving this market that made some tough, but smart decisions emerged the victors.  Others, not so much. Enter Van Meter Inc. (VMI), a supplier of electrical and mechanical products, services and solutions. VMI took control of their own destiny, made strategic alliances and acquisitions and, if that wasn’t enough, undertook a complete transformation of their IT infrastructure.

Jason Sinclair, a systems engineer at VMI, recently spoke to us about the impact on VMI’s IT infrastructure once the company decided to turbo-charge sales growth, acquire new companies and expand into new markets. The VMI IT team faced serious challenges associated with data growth in their IBM storage environment. “Our IBM storage was running short on performance and capacity. Even more challenging was that our private cloud and virtualization strategy was held back—we couldn’t get beyond 20% virtualization.”
