Data protection is my new gig, and I’m digging it! Prior to joining EMC’s DPAD marketing team, my past life was focused on elevating the voice of brands, ranging from Unix operating systems to bagged lettuce and a motley collection of cross-industry products and services. Now inspired by EMC’s vision and thought leadership, my blogger persona is salivating at the prospect of the “next big thing,” and the opportunity to watch things unfold through EMC’s market strategy and positioning.

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

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.
