Deduplication OptionSavings, Simplicity and Adaptability
The PowerVault DL Appliance with Backup Exec 2010 Deduplication Option supports a data-reduction strategy by optimizing storage and network bandwidth.The PowerVault DL Appliance with Backup Exec 2010 is a unique solution that offers different levels of deduplication that is easily adaptable to your environment and is designed to be up to 50%* less expensive than similar tape solutions through deduplication. In the deduplication process, duplicate data is deleted, leaving only one copy of the data to be stored. However, indexing of all data is still retained if that data should ever be required.
Integrated Tape SupportThe PowerVault DL Appliance is available with the Dell PowerVault TL2000, TL4000, or ML6000 tape library integrated into the full solution. Take advantage of backup-to-disk for quick availability, then transfer to tape from the same management console for offsite disaster recovery.
Faster, More Reliable BackupManaging backups with tape can be complex and time-consuming. Backups to tape often exceed their backup window, and tape-based backups can be prone to failure.
Better Than VTLVirtual Tape Libraries (VTLs) are ”point products” that can help fix backup and recovery bottlenecks in the short term. But they are separate components that create silos of information and add management complexity. Virtual tapes have to be created, provisioned, and managed from a separate interface, and VTL products lack alerting and reporting within the backup solution. The PowerVault DL Appliance is a native, disk-to-disk solution that eliminates the need for manual setup and management. It automatically and dynamically provisions disks, invisibly to the user, and gives you proactive monitoring, alerts and reporting.
Remote Backup, Management, Monitoring and MaintenanceYour data centre administrators can use the PowerVault DL Appliance to backup data from remote offices to the data centre. Administrators can setup backup tasks and policies and do system monitoring and maintenance from a central location. This makes the PowerVault DL Appliance the ideal backup solution for remote offices that do not have IT experts on site.
Granular Recovery Technology for Speedy RestoresWith Symantec Backup Exec 2010’s patent-pending Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) for critical Microsoft® applications, including Exchange, SharePoint (MOSS), and Active Directory your administrator can recover granular objects from a single-pass backup by simply browsing and selecting it. GRT lets you recover specific items such as public folders and individual mailboxes — even individual e-mails, attachments, and calendar items — all without a time-consuming full restore.
Continuous Data Protection for Exchange and FileThe PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 continuously protects Microsoft Exchange and file data by backing up changes to the disk in real time as they occur. Not only does this improve the overall level of data protection, it also reduces administrative complexity because it eliminates the need for full, incremental, or differential backups for Exchange data.
