Today, EMC is announcing a new version its Avamar Virtual Edition, which integrates with Microsoft Azure and can help make those first steps to the cloud just a little bit easier for users.
“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?
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.
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.
Today, EMC announced updates to EMC Data Domain deduplication storage systems and EMC SourceOne archiving software, changing the data protection game by delivering enhanced backup and archiving performance and efficiency, an expanded partner ecosystem, and reduced cost and complexity.
There is no more important job for an IT department than protecting its company’s data. But IT faces the Herculean task of ensuring that data is both RECOVERABLE and ACCESSIBLE for as long as needed, all while dealing with limited resources and flat budgets. That’s why EMC delivers data protection solutions for backup AND archiving, helping organizations address their recoverability and accessibility requirements while reducing cost and complexity through consolidation.
