As the introductory Data Protection Everywhere blog post made clear, Dell EMC’s data protection portfolio is equipped to deliver complete protection for enterprises of all sizes. No matter where data lives or what happens in the data center, Dell EMC offers the leading solution to keep your data protected. At the core of this Data Protection Everywhere strategy is Dell EMC Data Domain. Only a month after the Dell EMC deal closed, four new Data Domain systems were introduced – which makes now the ideal time to trust a single data protection vendor with your needs. The advanced defense provided by DD OS-powered solutions are critical to Dell EMC’s strategy of ensuring that your data is protected everywhere.

data-domain-protection-storageWith the near-exponential pace of data growth in recent years, enterprises big and small are recognizing their need for more protection storage. 90% of the world’s data was made in the last two years, after all. As backup administrators find themselves neck deep in backup data, they are demanding a solution that reduces protection storage needs by eliminating redundant data. This is what Data Domain has been known for — deduplication technology that will identify unique data in an incoming stream and store only what is unique. The new systems couple Data Domain’s variable-length deduplication with increased scalability to bring storage efficiency to data protection. The new high-end Data Domain DD9800 is 7 times more scalable than the closest competitor.

In 2016, Data Domain doubled down on Dell EMC’s commitment to protecting data everywhere with the launch of Data Domain Cloud Tier to help customers simplify and automate their path to the cloud. DD Cloud Tier sets Data Domain apart as the only protection storage to natively-tier deduplicated data to the public, private or hybrid cloud for long-term retention. Whether it’s Virtustream, Dell EMC ECS or a 3rd party cloud, DD Cloud Tier helps enterprises ensure that long-term retention data is protected no matter what.

DD Cloud Tier can store up to 2 times the capacity of the active tier on the Data Domain system. The new Data Domain DD9800, DD9300 & DD6800 all support this add-on for long-term retention in the cloud. These systems also support high availability configurations, enabling midmarket and large enterprise customers to achieve business continuity with a second Data Domain controller on standby. (more…)

As the last few leaves drop from the trees and warm sunny afternoons give way to cold winter nights, it can mean only one thing… the holidays are near. Like many of you, I am a firm believer that late November through early January is indeed “the most wonderful time of the year,” as Andy Williams first crooned back in 1963. It’s a time for binge eating, reconnecting with friends and family and in the case of the Robinson family, movie marathons! One of my most cherished traditions the past few years has been introducing my kids to the holiday classics that I grew up on; “A Christmas Story,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Elf,” and “Home Alone” to name a few.

In “Home Alone,” the McCallister family vacation takes a turn for the worse when eight-year-old Kevin is left behind as a result of an overnight storm and ensuing power outage. <Spoiler Alert!> As a result of his cleverness, a few household items, and a newfound friend, Kevin is ultimately able to protect his home against a pair of bungling intruders.

For enterprise IT, unwanted intruders, bungling or sophisticated, are no laughing matter. At Dell EMC, we’re committed to protecting all of our customer’s data against unwelcome intruders, power outages, ransomware and more. Physical or virtual. Data center or public cloud. North Carolina or North Pole. No data is out of reach for Dell EMC data protection solutions.

To that end, Dell EMC is a bronze sponsor of the AWS re:Invent 2016 conference, which kicks off today at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. With the sweet scent of Starbucks Pumpkin Chai lattes drifting through the air, the more than 20,000 attendees can network with cloud experts, engage in hands-on labs, attend boot camps and more. Come visit Dell EMC at booth #947 in the Expo Hall to talk to the experts about data protection solutions from Data Domain and NetWorker with CloudBoost for the AWS platform.

Data Domain Cloud Tier allows you to natively tier data to Amazon S3 object storage for long-term retention. As you would expect from Data Domain, only unique data is sent directly to AWS for a highly efficient and cost-effective long-term retention solution. We’ll also be offering demos of NetWorker with CloudBoost for protecting enterprise applications running on Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). NetWorker with CloudBoost runs completely self-contained within the AWS EC2 environment and includes client-side optimized backups, inline de-duplication, encryption and compression with backup directly to Amazon S3.

When you live in an older house, where the layout doesn’t really work for the way you live your life and there aren’t enough closets to satiate your wife’s shoe fetish, maybe it’s time to modernize! But do you knock the whole house down and start again? Maybe it’s tempting but, what about the investment that you’ve already made in your home? The bathroom you had refitted last year or the wiring you had redone? And where are you going to live during the whole inevitably elongated process?

It’s similar when you want to modernize your IT infrastructure: you have money sunk into your existing technology – probably still amortized for a year or two into the future – and you don’t want to face the disruption of completely starting again. We call this investment hangover ‘tech debt’.

For many companies, this debt includes a strategy for data storage that takes advantage of a shrinking per-gig cost of storage that enables them to keep everything. And that data is probably stored primarily on spinning disk with some high-availability workloads on flash in their primary data center. The old way of doing things was to see volumes of data growing and address that on a point basis with more spinning disk.

But, just like the house we mentioned earlier, data centers are bursting at the seams and it’s now time to modernize – but how?
