Dell EMC enhances multicold offering for medium sized enterprises

Dell EMC announces new and improved capabilities for its storage portfolio. The new solutions have been developed with the necessary flexibility and added value in mind, and offer multicold possibilities. This will provide more choice for medium-sized and large companies in particular.

There are many different cloud applications, both public and private. Each of them can be used in its own way and has its own advantages. More than half of the companies use multiple cloud services. In this way, they can optimally meet their own cloud needs. But the biggest disadvantage of this is compliance and data security. Dell EMC is improving its backup capabilities to address this.

Aimed at the multicold

The new software announcing Dell EMC bears the names Data Domain OS 6.2 and IDPA 2.3. Both support a variety of cloud services including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud Open Storage and much more. The also new Free-space Estimator Tool for Cloud Tier helps to manage capacity more efficiently, reducing costs for on-premises and cloud storage.

Dell EMC is also expanding its support for supported public cloud providers for Data Domain Virtual Edition with AWS GovCloud, Azure Government Cloud and Google Cloud Platform, among others. These parties come on top of the platforms already supported such as AWS S3 and Azure Hot Blob.

The comprehensive cloud ecosystem, combined with the previously announced increased capacity for DD VE – up to 96TB per instance – ensures that customers get the same level of protection in their growing cloud environments as in their on-premises Dell EMC appliances. Furthermore, Native Cloud Distaster Recovery is now available for the entire IDPA family.

Better performance and more options

New updates to the IDPA family have also significantly improved Dell EMC’s performance. Instant Access and Restore, for example, are equipped with an improved data cache, resulting in four times more inputs/outputs per second (IOPS). This leads to a maximum of 40,000 IOPS and a delay of only 20 milliseconds.

Finally, Dell offers more options for mid-sized organizations. Hardware improvements are also being made to Data Domain DD3300. This is a 2U appliance developed specifically for medium-sized organisations and large companies with remote offices. DD3300 now offers an additional 8TB capacity model that can scale and grow to 32TB. The DD3300 is now also available with faster network capacities and support for 10GbE and extensive backup options for virtual tape libraries (VTL) over Fiber Channel. These options provide medium-sized organizations with a cloud enabled data protection solution that can grow when they need it.
