Dell DR2000v Backup Disk Virtual Appliance

Ensure data protection and disaster recovery for remote and branch offices.

Get the same benefits of a physical DR appliance — including deduplication, compression, replication and advanced data protection — with this pure software solution.
Software DR2000v


Avoid the logistic and cost obstacles of deploying a physical backup to disk appliance with the DR2000v, an economical alternative for protecting data at remote or branch offices. An expansion of the Dell DR series, the DR2000v is a disaster recovery (DR) backup virtual appliance running inside a virtual machine (VM) on a VMware ESXi or Microsoft Hyper-V server.

This pure software solution delivers all the same benefits of a physical DR appliance, including deduplication, compression, replication and advanced data protection. To store the backed-up data, the DR2000v uses storage disks resident in the hypervisor server it’s loaded on and requires a peer DR4000, DR4100 or DR6000 appliance to be activated. The DR2000v licenses (orderable in packs of 1 or 10 licenses) are available in capacity points of 1, 2 or 4TB (with a maximum of 8 containers), so data protection and disaster recovery can now be expanded to remote or branch office locations.

Services & Solutions

Data protection
The DR2000v supports wide variety of backup software applications to help solve backup issues and offers the same deduplication guarantees as Dell DR series appliances, including global, in-line, variable-block deduplication which reduces volumes of data from backups by a ratio of 15:1.

Greater value
Lower the total cost of ownership for remote or branch office data protection by consolidating the backup target with your existing virtual infrastructure. Or integrate the DR2000v into your converged infrastructure deployments, such as the Dell VRTX system

Ease of deployment
The DR2000v is a non-disruptive addition to existing backup and recovery environments in remote or branch offices. Because it supports a variety of leading hypervisors, you can install it on existing hypervisor servers in sites where deploying a physical appliance presents logistical challenges

Business continuity
DR2000v licenses are tied to physical Dell DR series appliances and offer all the same features, including deduplication, compression and bidirectional replication, to ensure data is always available for recovery.
