De-duplication support for VMware

Driving home a message that storage management must become more efficient to keep up with the unrelenting pace of data growth, EMC unveiled a host of new offerings, including a US$1 million virtual tape library and upgraded de-duplication software, at its EMC conference in Orlando Monday.

In a keynote speech, EMC CEO Joseph Tucci noted that datacentres are being flooded by data from traditional sources as well as from a slew of new forms of content like digital cameras, phones and personal devices, email boxes and digital music. The popularity and usage of online social networking communities including Facebook, Youtube, Myspace, Flickr, and LinkedIn contributes to that data swell daily, Tucci added.

The new EMC Disk Library 6000 series is based on the EMC Symmetrix DMX-3 platform and features compressed capacity of up to 1.8 petabytes, executives said. The disk-based library is capable of backing up 11TB of data per hour and will be available next month.

Despite its $1 million price tag, the 6000 series VTL should help large enterprises shave costs by allowing them to phase out and consolidate multiple smaller VTLs and backup operations into a single system to purchase and manage.

EMC also announced plans to add support for de-duplication across its entire disk library portfolio starting early next year.

Extending its de-duplication technology to data stored in virtualized environments, EMC also disclosed that its June release of EMC Avamar de-duplication software Version 3.7 will include support for its VMware virtualisation tools. EMC officials said the support should reduce the size of backup data on hosted systems for VMWare customers by as much as 90%.

EMC also unveiled its new EMC Homebase backup, recovery and archive software providing bare metal recovery for servers to augment server state configuration restores. Currently available, EMC Homebase starts at $15,000.
