Data protection for VMAX3: High Performance Data Protection for Your High Performance Storage

1EMC has once again as raised the bar on storage leadership with the announcement of the new VMAX3.  Much more than primary storage, VMAX3 is an Enterprise storage services platform, designed to enable I/T to control where to best run specific workloads, whether in the data center or the cloud. With VMAX3, IT can manage Storage-as-a Service through predictable service levels at hybrid cloud scale. Continue reading

I like to be known as "Mr. Enterprise Storage Protector" writing, blogging and presenting to the world an ever-changing, always improving product story for enterprise storage (Mainframe) data protection and archiving. You won't ever hear or see me use the words "sexy" when describing our products (that's another story), but you will see that I am passionate about the ability to protect the crown jewels of corporate data. I consider enterprise (aka mainframe) data protection the guardian of insuring that the world doesn't "grind to a halt" as mainframes make airline transactions, stock trades, ATM transactions and many other things critical to our daily existence on the planet. I come to EMC via IBM where I spent more the two decades in storage as a developer and marketer of storage, even competing head-to-head with the products I now grow (yet another story). I call the Tucson Arizona desert home, where I like to sun & swim outside my office door. When I'm not outdoors, in front of customers or sales teams, you'll find me playing and listening to Jazz piano or guitar.

The DPArmy live from “Redefine Possible” in London

So the Doctor landed in the Old Billingsgate Market, in London on Tuesday to help EMC reveal a number of product announcements. Possibly for most, the main news of the day was the announcement that the existing high end storage array VMAX would be replaced with VMAX3. This updated array also included an updated and rebranded version of the operating system called HYPERMAX OS. Continue reading

What’s New in NetWorker 8.2: Snapshot Management for NAS

Just last April, we announced NetWorker 8.2. NetWorker continues to add solid and innovative enhancements providing value to your data protection initiatives.

I’d like to take some time to go a little deeper into the newly introduced NAS snapshot management support, helping you to better meet your RTO’s and RPO’s using snapshot technology as an enabler for fast, non-disruptive backup as well as full and granular recovery.  Continue reading

I started in the IT industry over 30 years ago — it sure doesn’t feel like that long! I worked my way through the ranks starting at the old Digital Equipment Corporation in software sales support, sales training, channel training, product management and, ultimately, marketing. My background includes digital imaging, team productivity software, Alta Vista (remember that?), storage management, storage networking and most recently backup and recovery software. While I love my job, I love cooking and wine appreciation even more.

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.
