Dell EMC Boosts Multi-Cloud Data Protection, Remote Office Management
February 05, 2019 / Matt Hamblen
Dell EMC today tackled data protection for customers moving to a multi-cloud architecture and added smaller appliance options for mid-sized organizations and larger firms running remote offices. Those moves involve expanded data protection with new and enhanced features to its Data Domain and Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) products. The moves are appropriate as recent IDC numbers showed that 92 percent of organizations are using a cloud architecture, with 64 percent adopting a multi-cloud setup. For its on-premise Data Domain appliances, Dell EMC announced that restores are up to 2.5-times faster than before, and recalls are up to four-times faster from the cloud to the appliance. For the IDPA family of products, an enhanced data cache provides up to four-times more inputs/outputs per second (IOPS). That’s up to 40,000 IOPS with as little as 20 milliseconds of latency. This capability was introduced for Data Domain last year in release 6.1.1.
