EMC unveils new midrange deduplication storage system

Also introduces its new EMC Disk Library 5000 series

By CBR Staff Writer

EMC has introduced Data Domain DD670, a new midrange deduplication storage system that incorporates the Nehalem-based Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series.

According to EMC, the new midrange storage system offers up to 5.4TB per hour of aggregate inline deduplication throughput, and supports up to 76TB of raw capacity or up to 2.7PB of logical capacity with 50 times data reduction.

EMC claims that the DD670 delivers major price and performance improvements to backup and recovery processes and more capacity for extended online retention.

The new Deduplication Storage Expansion option allows Disk Library for Mainframe (DLm) 960 users to achieve longer onsite retention, optimised replication and lower overall disk and tape storage costs for their mainframe backup and archive workloads.

Meanwhile, the company also introduced its new EMC Disk Library 5000 series, as well as a new deduplication storage expansion option for its Disk Library for Mainframe system. The larger capacity disk drives are also available for the new Disk Library series.

The new DL5000 series offers up to 10.2 TB/hr ingest performance in a single system, and scales from 8 TB up to 1.4 PB of usable storage which yields up to 2.8 PB of logical capacity, with an average compression ratio of 2:1.

The two models in the DL5000 series, the DL5100 and DL5200, consist of one and two Disk Library engines respectively.

Shane Jackson, senior director of product marketing at EMC backup recovery systems Division, said: "These new capabilities demonstrate EMC’s commitment to the price/performance leadership of its next generation disk-based backup products and expanded deduplication use cases such as mainframe.

"We continue to outpace competition by leveraging the Data Domain SISL (Stream-Informed Segment Layout) scaling architecture and new Intel processor technology to drive higher levels of system performance and capacity."
