The organizations that found the deduplication storage systems to be a big flop because of the performance can now look upon to the latest advancement. EMC has announced the launch of the upgraded range of Data Domain deduplication systems. The key highlight of this array of machine is that all the systems are capable of offering double performance as compared to the former models. Currently, the new machines belong to the high-end and midrange Data Domain deduplication arrays. The boost in performance has been possible because of the latest Intel processors. Additionally, there has been an increase in the capacity with the use of new drives.
EMC has also brought Data Domain Archiver. This new launch operates as an online storage storehouse, allowing the users to take long-term backups. It is capable of storing data longer than typical 90 days. The key attribute of this single controller is that it boasts of having a maximum data throughput rate of 9.8 terabytes per hour. Furthermore, it can even store around 768TB of raw capacity. Besides, it can also give space to 28.5 petabytes of deduplicated data. The company also ensures that the latest Data Domain Archiver is compatible with all the existing Data Domain tools such as the DD Replicator and the DD Retention Lock software.
Besides, the company states that they fill up the archive trays of storage systematically, and then seal them for security reasons probably. Later, the trays would be on the line for retrieval from the disk.
EMC upgraded high-end DD880 and DD690 with the latest Intel processor. The DD880 is now named DD890. It comes with Intelís Nehalem processor that is capable of enabling the box to ingest data at a speed up to 14.7TB per hour, which is much higher than DD880 (up to 8.8TB per hour). It offers a storage capability of 384TB, which is twice the predecessor's 192TB capacity. The company also reveals that the system can store up to 14.2 petabytes of data with the help of deduplication algorithm.
Apart from that, the DD690 that got refreshed is now termed as DD860. It works on Intelís Westmere processor that gives the freedom to consume up to 9.8TB of data per hour. The interesting aspect is that this deduplication device boasts up to 192.2TB of raw capacity. There is a drastic enhancement when compared with the predecessor that had 48TB of capacity and allowed to ingest merely 1.1TB of data per hour. Considering the deduplication system, it is capable of storing nearly 7.1 petabytes of data. Both these systems are single controller devices, letting trays of serial ATA (SATA) disk to expand up to 7.1 petabytes and 14.2 petabytes of data,
It is great that the company has improved the capacity and speed of the data storage devices as both these factors matter a lot to the consumers. So, now they will be able to protect the data faster by using EMC DD dedupe arrays.
