Every 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.

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. Avamar’s Fast Incremental architecture provides an efficient solution to protect High Density File Systems (HDFS).

Current storage systems are not equipped for the growing needs of your data. An IDC study confirms Dell EMC offers the broadest software-defined storage portfolio, powered by Intel Xeon processors, that provides the enterprise-grade agility to support your digital business demands. Software-defined storage offers elasticity, scale, and simplicity — with no compromises. The cost to store, manage and analyze billions or trillions of data objects just isn’t feasible using traditional storage, given the cost of constantly having to make new hardware investments to keep up with growing data stores. By decoupling software from hardware, software-defined storage makes it possible to simply acquire low-cost commodity hardware instead — reducing the cost of acquiring storage by as much as 50%.

To do data analysis in a traditional storage environment, you have to make multiple copies of data or coalesce it from multiple sources. That’s inherently slow, inefficient and unsuited to the amount and variety of IoT-generated data. But software defined cloud storage introduces the concept of a geo-distributed data lake, with the protocolsin place to accept a variety of data on the front end and to perform analytics-in-place wherever edge-device data is collected for rapid — even real-time — data analysis. It also enables analytics at the core on archival data for visibility into ever-increasing data sets.

Current storage systems are not equipped for the growing needs of your data. An IDC study confirms Dell EMC offers the broadest software-defined storage portfolio that provides the enterprise-grade agility to support your digital business demands. Better security — secures the mission critical workloads by implementing dynamic security policies. Improves network productivity — ensures effective load balancing, better content delivery and improves the network uptime. Reduces cost — lowers CAPEX cost by minimizing the need for hardware devices such as routers & switches. Lowers OPEX costs due to massive improvement in network management.

The policy based automation aspect of SDN also allows the network to expand into large number of nodes. Dell EMC has the broadest network storage portfolio — elastic scale-out, in-place analytics, and cloud-connected. Scale-IO — enterprise scale-out server SAN block storage, Isilon — enterprise scale-out NAS file storage. Elastic Cloud Storage — geo-federated cloud-scale object storage out In-place analytics, cloud-connected.

Supports up to 250,000 IOPS and 15 GB/second bandwidth per chassis. Offers robust data protection and security options. Maximizes efficiency with 80% storage utilization, data deduplication, and storage tiering. Automated storage tiering integrates storage at the core with available cloud services from a choice of providers. You can now get the performance you need to meet tight backup windows and support critical applications and workloads.

With software-defined storage, enterprises can create giant geo-distributed pools of storage that grow as large as necessary with very little effort on the part of IT and its users. The economic benefits are unprecedented, too, as commodity-based platforms increasingly provide the foundation for next generation storage, replacing more costly purpose-built storage arrays.

And it all starts with understanding what we mean when we talk about software-defined storage — it’s an approach to storage system design using the principles of distributed computing that delivers elastic, scale-out, multi-protocol, and geo-distributed capabilities all with a simplified management experience. This is how we will all store more data, and more kinds of data, than we have ever done before.

Not all VVols storage support is created equal. While VMware Virtual Volumes simplify management and provide per VM storage control, the revolutionary VMAX takes VVols integration to a whole new level. Not only was VMAX designed to support the scale of VVols — up to 64,000 virtual volumes today and many more in the future — but the VMAX service level objective management paradigm that has radically simplified storage management realizes the full value of VVols storage polices.

By matching policies to Service Level Objectives (SLOs), VMAX provides the highest levels of availability, data protection and performance directly to the VM. VMAX all flash storage leverages the industry’s first open storage and hypervisor converged operating system, HYPERMAX OS. It combines industry leading high availability, I/O management, quality of service, data integrity validation, storage tiering, and data security with an open application platform. HYPERMAX OS features the first real-time, non disruptive storage hypervisor that manages and protects embedded services.
