EMC and VMware release backup and recovery application

VMware vSphere Data Protection application is built on EMC Avamar deduplication backup software technology

By CBR Staff Writer

Data storage provider EMC and VMware, the virtualisation and cloud infrastructure application provider have released a backup and recovery application for VMware vSphere 5.1.

The new VMware vSphere Data Protection application is offered as a part of VMware vSphere 5.1 and built on EMC Avamar deduplication backup software technology.

VMware vSphere Data Protection uses EMC Avamar software’s variable-length deduplication to offer single-step restores to minimise storage resource consumption, reduce backup windows and enable fast recovery.

VMware cloud infrastructure products senior vice president Bogomil Balkansky said the backup and recovery is a critical element of virtualisation implementations.

"Our selection of EMC Avamar technology enables us to deliver better backup and recovery capabilities directly from the VMware vSphere platform," Balkansky said.

The company said, VMware vSphere Data Protection can be managed directly from the vSphere Web Client and can offer agent-less back up leveraging the vSphere Storage APIs for Data Protection.

EMC Backup Recovery Systems Division president William "BJ" Jenkins said: "The inclusion of Avamar capabilities into VMware vSphere Data Protection helps ensure that VMware users always have a highly effective tool for virtual machine protection today and into the future."
