Introducing the Small, but Powerful Data Domain DD2200

With all the excitement of EMC World last week, you might have missed an exciting announcement – the introduction of the DD2200.  With this new system, we’re redefining entry-level protection storage – providing enterprise-class capabilities optimized for midmarket customers.   Just like all Data Domain systems, the DD2200 runs the powerful Data Domain Operating System – so it packs the same punch as large enterprise systems like the DD990. This means midmarket customers can now more cost effectively:

• Consolidate backup and archive data and reduce data protection storage requirements by 10 to 30x

• Achieve network-efficient disaster recovery with Data Domain Replicator

• Gain reliable recovery with the Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture

• Speed backups by 50% with Data Domain Boost to meet increasingly stringent SLAs

• Optimize data protection via advanced integration with the newly enhanced EMC Data Protection Suite

As far as specs go, the new DD2200 provides:

• Performance up to 4.7 TB/hr via DD Boost

• Up to 17.2 TB usable capacity

• Simultaneous support for up to 60 backup/archive streams

Data Domain Product Marketing, Data Protection and Availability Division
I have spent the past nine years focused on all things data protection, with a focus on backup and archive. Lucky for me, Data Domain Systems give me lots of good topics to discuss here. When I’m not blogging, I’m equal parts gadget geek and sports freak – always ready to chat about the latest IT rumor or celebrate/lament the latest Boston sports heartbreak/victory. You can also find me talking backup on Twitter and YouTube.

Customers, Partners & Rock Stars – Oh My! EMC World 2014 So Far

A couple years ago, fresh out of Business School at Boston College, I started at EMC and dove head first into all things backup and archive, focusing on Data Domain systems. I love the challenge of communicating complicated technologies in innovative and engaging ways and there is certainly no shortage of inspiration at EMC’s Data Protection and Availability Division. Outside of the tech world, I am an artist, animal lover and sufferer of wanderlust. You can also find me on Twitter achieving the perfect balance of data protection and cat gifs.

Unplugged, Amped Up, and Ready to Take on The Second Machine Age

image008A year ago as I prepared to attend my first EMC World as the new head of what was then EMC’s Backup Recovery Systems Division, getting folks to think outside the box about backup and archive was top of mind for me.

Fast-forward a year (and I do mean fast-forward – wow, that was a quick 365 days!) and how truly fantastic is it that I can say that we’ve done more than just check that box; we’ve really moved the needle when it comes to data protection.

Yes, we amped up our portfolio by making some key product updates throughout the year that will help ensure we can support the next waves of big data, cloud computing, social networking and mobile computing that awaits us and help you bridge between traditional and next-generation platforms.

President, Data Protection and Availability Division
I'm an enterprise infrastructure hack. Really, if you think of my career as a building, I’ve spent it underneath in the sewer lines and the electric plumbing, making sure things work. Invariably, my businesses end up being called boring. But that’s okay. It means they’re doing exactly what they’re supposed to do, which means their customers can do what they need to do. I come to EMC by way of BEA Systems, NetApp and most recently LogLogic, and my mission is to lead EMC Data Protection and Availability Division's efforts to deliver a protection storage architecture that leaves us all in better shape for the next guy, or gig, that comes along. Oh, and make no mistake about it, I want everyone to know who’s number one in backup, and why.
