Dell Software launches new NetVault Backup, deduplication appliance
By Digital News Asia May 28, 2014
- NetVault Backup 10 features new web-based GUI and 3x the scalability
- Dell DR6000 offers greater scale, performance and centralised management
DELL Software has announced the release of two products that it said reflect the company’s ongoing commitment to satisfying the top backup and recovery challenges of mid-size and large enterprises.
NetVault Backup 10, Dell’s cross-platform enterprise data protection solution, features upgrades including a new web-based graphic user interface (GUI), enhanced scalability, and greater performance through tight integration with the new high-capacity, high-performance DR6000 deduplication appliance (pic above).
The latest addition to Dell’s DR series of deduplication appliances, the DR6000 is designed specifically for larger enterprises, offering users more than double the raw capacity and greater scalability than the DR4100, which is optimised for small- to mid-size organisations, Dell Software said in a statement.
With few tasks plaguing organisations more than backup, Dell said it has made significant investments in its backup and recovery product line over the past two years to help speed and simplify the task.
Dell now offers a portfolio that enables organisations to speed backups and restores, scale their backup tasks to match their business needs, and spend less time monitoring and managing backups.
“Despite the increased emphasis organisations of all sizes are placing on protecting critical data, most backup solutions still fall short – either due to cost, or inadequate performance, scalability and platform support,” said Kumar Mitra, general manager, Data Backup & Recovery, Asia-Pacific and Japan, Dell Software.
“NetVault Backup 10 and the Dell DR6000 break the mould by offering the usability, performance, scalability, and low TCO that mid-size and large enterprise organisations need.
“These two new releases reflect the continued growth and momentum we’re seeing with Dell Software’s data protection business, which now serves more than 83,000 customers worldwide,” he added.
The launch of NetVault Backup 10 and the DR6000 deduplication appliance demonstrates Dell Software’s investment in its data protection portfolio to extend more value to customers.
Individually, or in tandem, the two products help customers address the issues of usability, performance and scalability that too often make data protection a daunting, error-prone activity, the company claimed.
NetVault Backup 10 and the DR6000 are available now from Dell and its channel partners.
