Built in back up and de-duplication for Dell

CommVault : 09 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Simpana data protection and management software from CommVault to be built into the new Dell PowerVault DL2000
CommVault is teaming with Dell to offer a new integrated backup-to-disk solution that will give small- and medium-sized (SMB) companies better assurance that mission-critical data is protected, available and accessible.

This offering is built on the new Dell PowerVault DL2000, the industry's first customer-installable, integrated software and hardware solution powered by the award-winning CommVault Simpana 7.0 software, and provides a comprehensive disk-to-disk based solution to help customers implement and make use of a data management strategy that is simpler and more cost-effective to deploy.

The DL2000 lowers the cost and complexity barriers of entry for companies looking to increase the speed and reliability of their backups, reduce their storage footprint and centralize the protection of remote sites.

Innovative Disk-Based Backup Technology Improves and Simplifies Backup Operations

Organisations typically buy and use significantly more storage than they actually need due to redundant data and inefficient data management. The Dell PowerVault DL2000, powered by CommVault Simpana software, can help to reduce costs and prevent unnecessary expenditures with features that include:.

- Available Built-in De-duplication Retains More Recovery Points on Less Disk Eliminates redundant copies including files, emails and documents to enable efficient, scalable, and space-optimized data management for physical or virtual servers.

- Consolidated Management, Reporting and Maintenance - The Simpana software's centralized management console allows users to set backup tasks and policies for system monitoring and maintenance for local or remote physical or virtual servers.

- Single Step Granular Recovery Delivers up to 77 percent Faster Restores - The DL2000 couples the performance of disk-based recovery with application aware protection policies to deliver cross-server, cross-version and even cross-platform file, email, document or Active Directory attribute level restores.

- 'Assist & Accelerate' upgrades of Windows, Exchange and SharePoint - Restore items forward from prior versions of critical applications (e.g. Exchange Server 2003 items restored directly to Exchange Server 2007).

- Synthetic Full Backups Reduce Performance Impact and Backup Windows - To minimize the performance impact on production servers and networks, off-host techniques such as synthetic full jobs are used to generate new full backup copies to support tape DR or vaulting needs.

- Automated Storage Policies Simplify Tiered Storage Management - Reduce the retention cost of ownership as data is automatically moved from disk-to-disk based on user-defined storage policies and without impacting application servers.

Advanced Archive and Replication Features Enable More Efficient Data Management:.

- Obtain more value from the DL2000 investment by deploying the advanced data management options in the DL2000, to help contend with data growth and scale:

- File and Email Archival Agents Reduce Primary Storage Use - CommVault's File and Email Archiver software moves older data from servers and archives it for automatic recall, freeing space on production servers while delivering faster backup and recovery.

- Distributed Protection of Branch Offices - Pair Dell PowerVault DL2000s using CommVault's Data Replication software across geographically distributed sites to efficiently replicate de-duplicated backups to a centralized DR site for active recovery or copy to tape.

Continuous Data Protection for Critical Applications - Use CommVault's Data Replication software to provide byte-level replication of key application and file data over secure wide-area connections back to a Dell PowerVault DL2000.

Longstanding Relationship Between Companies Offers Customers Unique Benefits:

- To date, the longstanding relationship between the two companies has enabled thousands of customers to reap the benefits of CommVault's unique Singular Information Management approach and Dell storage solutions.

- As a Dell OEM partner, CommVault worked closely with Dell to co-develop this offering, enabling customers to seamlessly leverage faster disk-based backups and rapid restore recoveries with best-of-breed management capabilities inherent in both companies product families.

- The Dell PowerVault DL 2000, powered by CommVault Simpana software, is expected later this month.
