It’s Getting Better All the Time: EMC and Teradata Deliver Better Backup and Disaster Recovery

Anselmo Barrero

Director of Business Development, Data Protection & Availability Division at EMC

Teradata has unveiled new certified solutions that dramatically enhance backup, recovery and DR capabilities for Teradata Database users.  The new certifications are with EMC’s latest industry-leading Data Domain deduplication storage systems and Teradata’s latest Data Stream Architecture (DSA), delivering new data protection options through Teradata’s Backup Archive and Recovery (BAR) solution for its database customers.

The Teradata/EMC relationship itself is not entirely new.  Teradata already incorporates Data Domain systems as part of its Advocated BAR data protection offering. That said, the relationship is much deeper as Teradata also sells, optimizes and takes Level 1 support for Data Domain when it is sold as part of its BAR solution.

Teradata’s certification of the new Data Domain DD7200 is the latest in a series of recent advances by Teradata and EMC– specifically geared to deliver better data protection for Teradata Database customers.

A 1-2…3! Punch That Delivers Better Teradata Protection

Things got better for Teradata customers in October 2013 when Teradata announced its Data Stream Architecture (DSA), a new architecture designed to optimize data streaming from Teradata databases and increase performance of its BAR solution.  The DSA introduces features such as new stream layout and larger data blocks that improve Data Domain deduplication. Through close collaboration with EMC, Teradata also certified the Data Domain Operating System 5.4 in October 2013, and now the DD7200, bringing enormous backup performances improvements to customers.  The combination of the DSA architecture, the latest DD OS and the DD7200 protection storage system results in up to a 101% performance improvement over previous Data Domain-based Teradata BAR solution offerings.

As Chris Twogood, Vice President, Product and Services Marketing from Teradata, said, “Teradata and EMC are committed to providing the best backup solutions to our mutual customers.  This is why both companies engaged early on to complete certification of our latest respective technologies in concert with the release of Teradata’s new Data Stream Architecture. The combination of Teradata DSA with Data Domain is an effective and reliable backup and recovery solution for Teradata Databases and offers a fully automated and highly effective DR solution with network efficient replication.”Slide 1 JPG for Blog FF

Today, Teradata supports both the DD890 and the new DD7200.  To date, many petabytes of data from Teradata Databases are being protected by Data Domain systems sold by Teradata as part of BAR.

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

Hugues Meyrath

VP Product Management & Business Development, Backup and Recovery Systems Division at EMC

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.

VSPEX Sprouts Fresh Exotic Produce, And So Much More

Jen Sorenson

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.
