Dell EMC Avamar enables fast, efficient backup and recovery by reducing the size of backup data at the client before it’s transferred across the network and stored. Avamar’s variable length deduplication dramatically reduces network traffic by only sending unique blocks. Compressed and encrypted over Local Area Networks (LANs) or Wide Area Networks (WANs). Blocks that were previously stored are never backed up again. This means huge savings in bandwidth for backup, a lot less disk storage needed on the back-end, and, most importantly, very fast backups often as much as ten times faster. Avamar backups can be quickly recovered in just one step, eliminating the hassle of restoring full and subsequent incremental backups to reach the desired recovery point. The backup data can also be encrypted on the Avamar Data Store for added security. Never backup the same data twice.
Avamar then determines if a segment has been previously backed up and only backs up the unique segments. Highly efficient data deduplication. Avamar employs the most efficient client side deduplication on the market. Variable length deduplication significantly reduces backup time by only storing unique segments while maintaining daily full backups for immediate, single step image restore. Deduplication dramatically reduces the amount of data sent and stored eliminating backup bottlenecks and reducing storage costs. The easiest and fastest way to deploy this solution, Avamar Data Store combines a Dell EMC certified purpose-built backup appliance and Avamar deduplication backup and recovery software in a fully integrated, scalable, prepackaged solution. It eliminates the complexity of working with multiple vendors for hardware, software, and support. As a turnkey solution, Avamar Data Store significantly reduces on site setup time. While providing a single point of contact for purchasing, deployment, and service.
Dell EMC Avamar — Highly Efficient Backup Of NAS And High Density File Systems
Every Dell EMC Avamar backup is a full backup, which makes it easy for you to browse, point, and click for a single-step recovery. Avamar provides fast, reliable NAS system backup and recovery via the Avamar NDMP Accelerator node. With this approach, a Level-0 backup is performed only once, during the initial full backup. Subsequent daily full backups are achieved by requesting only Level-1 incremental dumps, and building them into a daily full backup view. This dramatically reduces backup times and the impact on NAS resources, and allows an easier and faster recovery. Dell EMC Avamar eliminates backup bottlenecks and provides the freedom to consolidate storage and optimize NAS systems. Without limiting the number and size of files or volumes — to meet the backup window. With automated multi streaming, Avamar can protect large-scale out NAS systems, including Isilon, by delivering increased throughput to protection storage.
Scalability And Reliability
When deploying Avamar with Data Domain as the backup target, you will reduce the costs involved with backing up and replicating data for disaster recovery. Data Domain Replicator software provides automated, policy-based, network efficient, and encrypted replication for disaster recovery and multi-site data protection. Avamar Data Store combines Dell EMC certified hardware and Avamar deduplication backup and recovery software in a fully integrated, scalable, pre-packaged solution. In addition, it eliminates single points of failure by employing patented redundant array of independent nodes (RAIN) technology. To provide high availability across nodes in the Avamar Data Store. System and data integrity are verified daily to ensure recoverability. Avamar Data Store features redundant power and networking, redundant array of independent disks (RAID). And patented redundant array of independent nodes (RAIN) technology to provide uninterrupted data accessibility.
Avamar protects your business critical applications without interruption or downtime. Leveraging data deduplication assures protection of key business application data in shorter backup windows. And maximum network efficiency during backup, and minimal backup storage consumption. Dell EMC Avamar integration with Data Domain provides the alternative of directing Avamar backups of selected workloads to Data Domain systems. For scale and performance benefits. Avamar divides backup data into variable length sub file segments. Compresses and applies a unique hash identifier to each segment during the backup process. Avamar then determines if a segment has been previously backed up and only backs up the unique segments. Additionally, Avamar will never backup the same data twice. The traditional file based backup approach for protecting HDFS cause bottlenecks by scanning — reading the entire file system during a backup.
