EMC extends Avamar deduplication backup software to desktops, laptops

Adds vitualisation support of VMware vSphere 4 through vCenter and vStorage integration

By CBR Staff Writer

EMC has unveiled a new version of Avamar software, extending its enterprise backup capabilities for desktop and laptop computers.

The company claims that the new version helps organisations leverage the Avamar deduplication technology that protects data centres and remote offices, to backup the information stored on corporate desktops and laptops.

In addition, the company extends its Avamar capabilities through new virtualisation support of VMware vSphere 4 through vCenter and vStorage integration providing customers with flexible backup and restore options.

According to EMC, the Avamar is integrated with the new vStorage API that comes as part of vSphere 4 and provides service for VMware backups. vCenter has been integrated into the Avamar management console providing a single point of management for all backup options available.

In addition, the company said that it has increased Avamar backup capacity by more than 60% and added new deduplicated export to tape functionality. The Avamar Data Store Gen3 is available in 1 to 16 storage node configurations, with up to 3.3TB of capacity per node, for scalability up to 52.8TB of deduplicated capacity in a single grid.

The data transport for long term storage enables the export of deduplicated data to tape for long-term storage, helping to reduce tape storage by up to 50 times. Through policy-driven processes, customers can export deduplicated data to tape and leverage searchable file-level catalogs for restores, the company claims.

Chuck Hollis, vice president and global marketing CTO of EMC, said: Between leveraging the new vSphere API architecture and improved support for VMware View 4, we can deliver the enterprise scale, as well as the client support customers and service providers need for next generation backup.
