EMC Unveils Next Generation Backup and Recovery Capabilities at EMC World


EMC Expands Industry's Broadest Data Protection Portfolio with Largest and Fastest Open Disk Library, De-Duplication Software for Virtual Machines and Bare Metal Recovery Software

ORLANDO, Fla., May 21 -- EMC WORLD -- EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today further extended the broadest portfolio of backup and recovery technology in the industry with the announcement of the world's largest single system virtual tape library (VTL), the latest versions of its industry-leading data de-duplication, replication and backup software, and new bare metal recovery capabilities.

Helping customer's to build tomorrow's information infrastructure, EMC today announced:

o The industry's largest and fastest open systems virtual tape library.
The EMC® Disk Library (DL) 6000 series can store up to 1.8 petabytes
of information in a single appliance and can backup more than 11
terabytes of data per hour. Based on the EMC® Symmetrix® DMX-3
storage platform, the new EMC DL6000 models provide the highest levels
of scalability, performance and software capabilities in the industry.
The EMC Disk Library family is the leading open systems virtual tape
solution in the industry.
o The latest version of EMC Avamar® data de-duplication software
featuring integration with VMware® technology. Avamar software
version 3.7 now supports VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) software,
reducing backup times of virtual machines by up to 90%. Additionally,
Avamar software now includes expanded file server support, enabling
faster backups of EMC Celerra® network-attached storage (NAS)
systems.
o EMC HomeBase(TM), new software that provides bare metal recovery of
servers. HomeBase software simplifies server management through highly
automated recovery of server capabilities in the event of a hardware
failure or disaster. This new software provides greater protection
using a unique feature that captures a server's status more frequently
to provide faster recoveries. HomeBase is complementary to Avamar,
VMware and EMC NetWorker® backup and recovery software.
o New features of EMC NetWorker software, including new ease-of-use
features and support of additional languages, improving management
capabilities for multi-national customers.
o A new version of the award-winning EMC RecoverPoint(TM) software for
Continuous Remote Replication (CRR) and local Continuous Data
Protection (CDP). The latest version of RecoverPoint software includes
support for Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which improves
automation and management of backups and restores for applications like
Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server. In addition, EMC
has integrated RecoverPoint and EMC Replication Manager software to
centralize management of RecoverPoint local CDP protection in a
Microsoft Windows environment.

Charles King, Principal Analyst at Pund-IT, Inc. said, "Customers today are generating volumes of data that quickly overwhelm traditional backup architectures. There's simply not enough time for them to safely protect that information. EMC has been at the forefront of providing customers the tools and technologies necessary to redefine their essential backup, restore and archiving processes. Whether it's through the performance advantages of disk- based backup versus tape or innovative continuous data protection and de- duplication capabilities, EMC continues to successfully innovate and deliver leading solutions that address this major customer pain point."

David Donatelli, EMC's Executive Vice President of Storage Product Operations, said, "Backup has been a long-term challenge for customers and is one issue we hear about consistently, regardless of their size, industry or budget. It is even more challenging for them in the face of 60% annual information growth. The amount of information customers have to regularly back up can be up to five times that when you factor in duplicate copies. Customers are struggling to meet recovery point and recovery time objectives while making the backup process as efficient as possible."

Donatelli, added, "EMC has had great market success and has led the way with innovative new technologies that help customers address these challenges. We're expanding the industry's broadest portfolio of backup and recovery solutions even more with new cost-effective, high-end disk library systems and new versions of our leading software that will help customers protect and recover their information faster, easier and more reliably than ever before."
