Tasmania Fire Service replaces its tape libraries with a replicated disk-based backup solution
We definitely have a better deduplication ratio with the Dell DR4000 appliance. Our previous deduplication system didn’t allow for replication, and only had around a 6:1 deduplication ratio compared with the 11:1 we currently have with the DR4000. We now have a much more capable disk backup solution at a far lower price than the previous software-based system.
• Cost-efficient disk de-duplication reduces storage demands
• Reliance shifts from tape to automated, highly available disk backup
• Data demands are met through easy expansion of disk appliance
