The turnkey solution is designed to provide automated storage setup and centralized management to ease all aspects of backup, recovery and de-duplication. Advanced add-on features, such as archive and replication capabilities, can be integrated seamlessly to scale and increase functionality as business demands dictate.
Dell expects to make the system available later this month and offers Dell storage consulting services to help customers better understand their existing storage environments and provide a clear, actionable path to more efficient storage deployments and operations.
Part of Dell’s new TierDisk family of products, the PowerVault DL2000 can be set 4.5 times faster than other commercially available, non-integrated systems. Offering up to 144TB of usable disk space, the solution is an ideal backup and recovery offering for small- to medium-sized organizations and branch offices looking for a simple, capable and affordable data protection solution.
The DL2000 eliminates the need for customers to configure RAID or allocate Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs) to their backup storage software. Automated dynamic disk provisioning configures and sets up the disks for immediate use and gets customers up and running 4.5 times faster than current non-integrated solutions. Additionally, storage capacity may be added on-the-fly without requiring customers to reconfigure or set up the device. When combined with the Dell PowerVault TL2000, TL4000, or ML6000 tape library, the DL2000 can provide all the advantages of backup-to-disk for rapid restoration, with the security of tape for offsite disaster recovery.
PowerVault DL2000 solutions come factory-installed and verified with either CommVault® Simpana® or Symantec Backup Exec™ software, plus integrated tools that help customers setup the DL2000 in minutes versus hours. [October 13, 2008]
