EMC Corporation has a whole new set of hardware and software to sell to customers including the introduction of the EMC Disk Library 6000 series, which was unveiled today at EMC World in Orlando, Fla. For large data centers, the DL 6000 consists of the DL6100 and the DL6300 and gives users the ability to store up to 1.8 petabytes of capacity and can backup more than 11 terabytes of data per hour. The DL 6000 is based on EMC’s DMX-3 storage platform, which allows customers to use tiered storage within the array. The DL6000 costs $1 million, and will be sold primarily through EMC’s direct sales representatives.
There was something, however, for authorized resellers servicing small and medium size businesses (SMBs) including the Avamar data deduplication software version 3.7, an upgrade that now comes with VMware integration for customers who are consolidating their storage through virtualization projects and need a tool to eliminate information redundancy. “Customers can now reduce virtual machine backup times by up to 90%,” said David Donatelli, EMC’s executive vice president, storage product operations. The company has also designed Avamar to integrate with more EMC products such as the Celerra network attached storage (NAS) systems.
The EMC HomeBase, a new software tool that provides bare metal recovery of servers was also introduced today. HomeBase works with EMC’s backup and recovery software NetWorker, as well as VMware and Avamar. NetWorker also received a refresh and now supports more native languages for multinational customers like those in the Asia Pacific region.
Finally, a new version of EMC RecoverPoint software for continuous remote replication was also announced. Now RecoverPoint supports Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) a tool that manages backup and restore functions for Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server.
