Dell EMC updated with enhanced data protection for mid-sized businesses

Software developer Dell EMC has updated its Data Domain and Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) with enhanced data protection services.

With these updates, Dell EMC has made it easier and more efficient for businesses to run its security appliances. For instance, a speed boost has been provided to restores, which is now 2.5 times faster than the previous versions of the appliance. Moreover, recalls for IDPA are now four times faster from the cloud to the hardware, albeit 40,000 IOPS with 20 milliseconds of latency was added to Data Domain in 2018.

Furthermore, software support for Data Domain OS 6.2 and the IDPA 2.3 software has been extended to Alibaba Cloud and Google Cloud Platform through Cloud Tier support. This extension makes it compatible with Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage, IBM Cloud Open Storage, Microsoft Azure, Virtustream, Ceph, AWS, AWS Infrequent Access, Azure Government Cloud and Azure Cool Blob storage.

Additionally, Dell EMC’s Free-space Estimator Tool will also analyse cloud usage and reduce costs of both on-premises and cloud storage costs. The Data Domain Virtual Edition is now no longer an exclusive software-defined protection storage for AWS S3 and Azure Hot Blob users, as AWS GovCloud, Azure Government Cloud, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) have now been tagged on as supported platforms.  

President of Data Protection at Dell EMC Beth Phalen said: “As the industry leader in data protection appliances, Dell EMC is committed to delivering continued innovation in our data protection portfolio that supports and improves customers’ adoption of multi-cloud environments. Our appliances are powerful, simple to manage and make it easy to expand to public clouds with native cloud capabilities.”
