From archive to continuous availability solutions EMC announced new products to address a broad range of data protection requirements. EMC adds new integrations with primary and protection storage platforms, as well as hypervisors and enterprise applications.
The EMC Data Protection Suite features snapshot management for EMC Isilon, EMC VNX and NetApp arrays, support for VMware and Microsoft cloud infrastructures, full integration between Avamar and Data Domain, and enhanced security features and Linux support for Mozy public clouds.
With the introduction of a new EMC Data Domain Operating System EMC also introduces DD Boost for Enterprise Applications, which empowers application admins to protect their own environments and includes support for Oracle, SAP solutions, the SAP HANA platform, IBM DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server. New secure multi-tenancy feature for cloud deployments enables Data Domain systems to deliver secure isolation for large enterprises and service providers and effectively function as a protection storage platform in data protection as-a-service deployments.
New releases of VPLEX and RecoverPoint now combine to deliver MetroPoint topology, an industry-unique 3 site business continuity capability for mission critical applications. The new VPLEX Virtual Edition was launched, as a virtualized solution that offers both continuous availability and data mobility in a low-cost, 100 percent software deployment. With it EMC extends the market for continuous availability and mobility as customers of all sizes can now take advantage of proven VPLEX technology. VPLEX Virtual Edition will also be made available as part of VSPEX Proven Infrastructure solutions.
“Over the past few years we’ve delivered numerous integrations that, together with a workload-agnostic protection storage platform as an anchor, provide a Protection Storage Architecture,” said Guy Churchward, President, EMC Data Protection and Availability Division. “Today, we are announcing products and new integrations that enable customers to deliver a complete spectrum of data protection and availability capabilities as a holistic, consumable service. Data protection-as-a-service is a key tenant for establishing effective protection for software-defined data centers—a ‘bedrock’ that needs to be in place for organizations to confidently transition to 3 rd platform software infrastructures.”
