NaviSite adds EMC Data Domain to its Vault platform

NaviSite this week expanded its partnership with EMC around its NaviCloud hosted cloud platform by madding support for EMC’s Data Domain disk backup and deduplication platform.

NaviSite, a subsidiary of Time Warner Cable, offers managed cloud services via its four co-locations in the United States and England. NaviSite already supports the Actifio Copy Data Storage (CDS) systems for some time now, with customers placing an Actifio device on-premises and one in a NaviSite co-location for data protection. It also uses EMC Atmos for cloud storage.

NaviSite now hopes to expand its customer base by tapping into EMC Data Domain users.

“There are a considerable number of customers in the Data Domain installed base,” said Chris Patterson, NaviSite’s vice president of product management.  “The Vault does like-for-like replication from one array to another. We thought it was best to support the more popular array out there.”

Patterson said NaviSite has a large Data Domain system at its data center. It sells customers smaller Data Domain devices to place on premise, or customers can use Data Domain appliances they already own. Like with the Actifio system, the Data Domain on-prem device acts as target for applications. Then the data is replicated to the system in NaviSite’s public cloud.

“If a customer has a lot of data, more that 10 or 20 terabytes, we ship a small Data Domain to them so they can sync up (the data) on their site and they can send it back to us,” Patterson said.
