With businesses operating 24/7, IT departments are under intense pressure to ensure data availability and integrity, while still meeting capacity and backup window constraints. The next generation Dell DR4100 deduplication and compression backup appliance, leveraging the Dell 12th generation Power Edge platform, can help overcome these challenges by reducing the amount of data that needs to be stored and replicated. Hi, I'm Jason Landry, an enterprise solution specialist here at Dell.
Through the use of innovative Dell deduplication and compression technology, the DR 4100 can help achieve a data reduction level up to 15 to one. This reduction in data means more backup data can be retained longer, as compared to tape and in the same footprint with logical capacity ranging from 35 terabytes to 405 terabytes. By removing redundant data and occupying the same footprint, the DR4100 disk backup appliance with built-in deduplication and compression can deliver fast, reliable backup and restore functionality, reduce media usage, as well as power and cooling requirements and improve overall data protection and retention costs.
The DR4100 4,100 enables seamless capacity expansion with non-disruptive deployment. Available in nine terabytes, 18 terabytes, or 27 terabytes, the DR4100 offers flexible expansion options with capacity needs equal to or greater than controller capacity. Using three terabyte drives and two expansion shelves, the DR4100 can scale up to 81 terabytes usable capacity.
By removing redundant data from the backup work stream, the DR4100 can drastically reduce the storage footprint, enable backup data to remain on disk and online longer, as compared to tape and provide fast and reliable restores by reducing tape management complexity. A high performance, disk-based backup and recovery appliance that is simple to deploy, manage, and flexible to adapt to your business's evolving data storage capacity, the DR4100 from Dell.
