Next-generation backup and recovery
Next-generation Backup and Recovery
• Backup redesign is an imperative to keep
pace with data growth and virtualization
• Disk- and network-based infrastructure is
rapidly replacing tape
Data Domain Deduplication Storage
• 10 to 30 times average reduction in
backup storage required
With ever-growing volumes of data, strict service level agreements, compliance regulations,
and backup bottlenecks created by the transition to virtualized server environments, many IT
organizations are faced with an imperative to redesign their backup infrastructure to one
that is disk- and network-based, rather than continuing to pour money and resources into
legacy tape-based systems.
Data deduplication is the enabling technology for next-generation backup and recovery
solutions. By reducing backup storage required by 10 to 30 times on average, data can be
retained on site longer for fast operational restores, and replicated offsite efficiently over
existing network links for disaster recovery and multisite tape consolidation.
• Network-efficient and encrypted
replication for tape-free disaster recovery
(DR) and multisite tape consolidation
EMC is the leading provider of disk-based backup and recovery solutions, and also leads the
industry in deduplication storage and software. EMC’s portfolio of backup and recovery
products provide the flexibility and scalability to meet the data protection needs of
enterprises of all sizes.
• Easy integration with existing
Avamar Deduplication Backup Software
• 90 percent faster backups
• Single-step restores
• Optimized for VMware and Hyper-V
• Multi-streaming to Data Domain systems
for application-specific backup
EMC® Data Domain® deduplication storage systems deduplicate data inline—during the
backup and archive process—so that data lands on disk already deduplicated, requiring a
fraction of the disk space of the original dataset. Backup and archive data can be retained
onsite longer for fast, reliable restores from disk. IT organizations can leverage the existing
backup infrastructure to accommodate complementary archive workloads by simply adding
expansion storage, thereby consolidating backup and archive data on the same system for a
cost-effective solution. Backup and archive data can then be replicated offsite faster with
minimal bandwidth for safe, tape-free disaster recovery.

EMC Data Domain System
Data Domain in the Distributed Enterprise
Deduplicated data can be stored onsite for immediate restores and longer-term retention on disk and
replicated over the WAN to a remote site for disaster recovery operations—eliminating the need for
tape-based backups—or for consolidating tape backups to a central location. Data Domain systems

Throughput Mb/Sec
provide flexible replication topologies to optimize your backups such as selective, bi-directional,
many-to-one, one-to-many, cascaded, and full system mirroring.
EMC Data Domain
Fibre Channel
Data Domain systems integrate easily into your existing environment, so you can leverage
the benefits of deduplication across workloads, infrastructure, and backup and archiving
applications. A single Data Domain system can be used for backup and recovery, protection
of enterprise applications (Oracle, Microsoft® Exchange, VMware®, and others), archiving,
and online reference storage.
# Disk Spindles
CPU-Centric Storage
Data Domain Stream-Informed Segment Layout
(SISL™) scaling architecture takes the pressure off
of disk I/O as a bottleneck, so the remaining
system design is CPU-centric. Other deduplication methods require more disks to increase their
throughput speeds.
Data Domain systems provide network-efficient replication for disaster recovery, remote
office data protection, and multisite tape consolidation. Data Domain replicates only the
deduplicated data over the wide area network (WAN), making network-based replication
fast, reliable, and cost-effective.
The EMC Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture provides the industry’s best defense
against data integrity issues. Inline write and read verification protects against, and
automatically recovers from, data integrity issues during data ingest and retrieval. Capturing
and correcting I/O errors inline during the backup process eliminates the need to repeat
backup jobs, ensuring backups complete on time and satisfy service-level agreements.
Unlike other enterprise arrays or file systems, continuous fault detection and self-healing
features protect data throughout its lifecycle on all Data Domain systems.
“EMC Data Domain systems provide superb
reliability. We know that when we back up, we
can quickly and easily restore. We never had that
sense of certainty before when we used tape

Software options provide data protection enhancements for your environment.
EMC Data Domain Replicator software is an automated, policy-based, network-efficient
replication software solution for disaster recovery, remote office data protection, and
multisite tape consolidation. DD Replicator software vaults (asynchronously replicates) only
the compressed, deduplicated data over the WAN during the backup process, making
network-based replication fast, reliable, and cost-effective. Tape backups can be eliminated
or consolidated to a central site. If confidentiality is required, deduplicated and compressed
data can be encrypted in-flight when being replicated between Data Domain systems,
independent of the replication topology used.
EMC Data Domain Virtual Tape Library (VTL) software emulates multiple tape libraries over
a Fibre Channel interface, providing deduplication storage for open systems and IBM i environments, complementing the default NAS interfaces. Data Domain VTL software

cannot be deleted or overwritten under any circumstances other than deliberate physical
EMC Data Domain Encryption software provides organizations with enhanced security for
data that resides on their Data Domain systems using industry-standard RSA® BSAFE FIPS
140-2 validated cryptographic libraries. Using this software option, backup and archive data
is stored on a Data Domain system with encryption and compression performed inline—
before the data is written to disk. Centralized encryption key lifecycle management is
optionally available with the RSA Data Protection Manager to deliver a robust, encryption key
lifecycle management solution for the entire enterprise.
EMC Data Domain Extended Retention software extends the scalability of a Data Domain
system to enable cost-effective, long-term backup retention on deduplicated disk. Using DD
Extended Retention software, customers can leverage Data Domain systems for long-term
backup retention, and minimize reliance on tape infrastructure in the data center.

Virtual Infrastructure
For smaller remote offices, lightweight, efficient Avamar software agents can be deployed on
the systems to be protected with no additional remote hardware required. This enables data
to be backed up directly over existing WAN connections to a central Avamar Data Store at the
data center, eliminating the need for local tape backup and the risk associated with offsite
tape shipments.
Avamar deduplicates backup data globally, across both physical and virtual servers. For
virtualized environments, flexible backup options include guest- or image-level backups,
leveraging the latest VMware vStorage APIs for Data Protection. Avamar can quickly and
efficiently protect virtual machines as if they were physical servers, or provide bare-metal
recovery at the virtual machine level by backing up VMDK files. Avamar integrates tightly with
VMware vCenter™ for simplified management of rapidly expanding VMware environments.
Avamar supports NDMP backup via the Avamar NDMP Accelerator Node to provide reliable,
high performance backup and recovery for NAS filers (for example, EMC Celerra® and NetApp
filers). Avamar provides fast, daily full backups for filers while requesting only a level-one
(incremental) daily dump of data from the filer itself, dramatically reducing backup times
and network utilization.
Avamar helps companies meet compliance regulations that require extended retention of
data. Avamar provides extended retention by sending backup data to a media access node
which then places the data on a VTL or tape.

EMC Disk Library for mainframe
The EMC Disk Library for mainframe series addresses the challenges of the mainframe data
center and delivers industry-leading scalability, performance, and availability to tape
operations while working seamlessly with the current host systems and applications. Disk
Library for mainframe combines low-cost SAS and SATA drives, RAID 6 protection, hotstandby disks, tape emulation, hardware compression, and the functionality necessary to
provide enterprises with a high-capacity mainframe tape replacement solution that delivers
increased application availability.
The EMC Disk Library for mainframe is available in three configurations. The EMC DLm6000
is the EMC flagship mainframe solution in terms of scalability and performance. The EMC
DLm2000 is designed for users who have less of a need for massive scalability, or who do
not require deduplication storage. The EMC DLm1000 is a gateway product providing
mainframe connectivity to Data Domain storage systems. The DLm6000 offers deduplication
storage (Data Domain® DD890) and/or primary storage (VNX7500™) in a single, manageable
platform. The DLm2000 offers primary storage only and is designed for smaller mainframe
tape environments. The DLm1000 offers deduplication storage only and is also designed for
smaller mainframe tape environments. All models are based on the same platform and
software and provide similar benefits to users.
The DLm6000 is the only mainframe virtual tape library that offers this combination of
storage types, providing users with the best of both worlds to help meet their specific
requirements. For backup and archive workloads, deduplication storage systems allow
DLm6000 users to leverage longer onsite retention, optimize replication, and lower overall
disk storage costs. For other workloads, such as HSM migration, fixed-content archival or
temporary work files, the primary storage provides DLm6000 users high-speed access and
improved data protection of their tape data.
EMC Disk Library for mainframe works seamlessly with mainframe applications and connects
directly to the mainframe host using FICON channels, appearing as 3480/3490/3590 tape
drives to the mainframe operating system. All tape commands are supported by the Disk
Library for mainframe and respond as real tape drives, so existing processes, tape
management systems, and applications can run without any modifications.
EMC Disk Library for mainframe delivers:
