Simpler and Faster to Set Up and Manage
The Dell™ PowerVault™ DL2100 powered by Symantec® Backup Exec™ (part of the Dell TierDisk family of products) is the industry's first and only integrated solution for faster disk-based backups and recoveries that lets you start protecting your data in just 18 minutes.
Dell has simplified the backup process by offering the only integrated hardware, software and services solution powered by Symantec Backup Exec. The PowerVault DL2100 comes factory-installed with Symantec Backup Exec software and a unique wizard driven set up and management utility. The backup software comes with integrated automated dynamic disk provisioning that configures and sets up the disks for immediate use. Set it up, configure storage, add more disks —it only takes a few clicks.
Integrated Tape Support
The PowerVault DL2100 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.
Managing 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.
Disk-based backup with the PowerVault DL2100 – Powered by Symantec are up 55% faster than tape and restores are up to 50% faster.
Better Than VTL
Virtual 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 DL2100 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.
Your data centre administrators can use the PowerVault DL2100 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 DL2100 the ideal backup solution for remote offices that do not have IT experts on site.
Granular Recovery Technology for Speedy Restores
With Symantec Backup Exec’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.
The PowerVault DL2100 – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec 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.
Protection for Desktops and Laptops
Backup Exec’s Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) lets users automatically protect and sync multiple desktops and laptops via a network share. DLO lets users choose continuous, scheduled, or manual backups and provides an intuitive interface that lets users access their most up-to-date data whether they are in the office or on the road.
Managing backups on virtual machines can be difficult and expensive due to licensing requirements. The PowerVault DL2100 – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec incorporates award-winning technology for virtual machine protection. The Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructure includes protection for an unlimited number of guests on an individual ESX host. In addition, Backup Exec leverages several VMware technologies including VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) that make backing up and restoring virtual machines faster and easier.
