Dell bulks up with block-level dedupe

Remote office data on a diet

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

As EMC and NetApp tussle over Data Domain, Dell has added block-level deduplication to its DL2000 product.

This is a PowerVault disk-to-disk backup appliance running either CommVault's Simpana 8 or Symantec Backup Exec. When it was introduced in October last year, the Simpana product offered file single instancing. It has since been updated and Dell is now offering this version of the software. HDS also provides a Simpana-based deduplication product.

It's interesting as Dell has a strategy to offer Quantum DXi-based block-level deduplication across its storage products. Products embracing the DXi technology have yet to appear.

CommVault says the DL2000, with its strengthened deduplication and improved management of virtualised environments, is designed to help SMBs gain operational efficiencies and cost savings with an all-in-one, disk-based offering. It says the DL2000 can also be seamlessly deployed into the datacenter, as well as remote offices.

CommVault's Michael McMahon, Senior Director for Worldwide OEM and Alliances, said: "DL2000s can replicate deduplicated data to a central DL2000. The benefit of this is reducing the amount of data in a remote office prior to sending across the network."

Quantum has just announced a Dell-powered DXi2500-D deduplicating product for remote and branch offices which replicates deduplicated data to a central DXi7500. ®
