    Deduplication Backup Software and System
  • SCALABILITY, HIGH AVAILABILITY, AND RELIABILITY
  • Unlike many server deployments, the Avamar Data Store uses a grid architecture that facilitates linear performance increases by simply adding storage nodes. Each incremental node increases CPU, memory, I/O, and disk capacity for the entire grid. When a storage node is added, data is automatically load-balanced without compromising system performance.

    When traditional backup solutions fail, a company is exposed to potential data loss. Avamar eliminates single points of failure by employing patented redundant array of independent nodes (RAIN) technology to provide high availability across nodes in the Data Store. In addition, system and data integrity is verified daily to ensure recoverability.
  • EXTENDED RETENTION
  • Avamar helps companies meet compliance regulations that require extended retention of data. Avamar provides extended retention by sending backup data to a media access node which then places the data on a VTL or tape. Data is stored in the original format maintaining all permissions and attributes, which supports offsite restores for eDiscovery.
  • FLEXIBLE DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS TO FIT YOUR EXACT NEEDS
  • Avamar provides flexibility in solution deployments depending upon your specific use case and recovery requirements.

    EMC Avamar Data Store is a turnkey backup and recovery solution that integrates Avamar software with EMC-certified hardware for streamlined deployment and service. A replicated Avamar Data Store single-node is ideal for smaller businesses or remote offices with strict SLAs.

    The EMC Avamar Virtual Edition—the industry’s first deduplication virtual appliance for backup and recovery—consists of EMC Avamar software deployed as a virtual appliance. It enables the deployment of a complete Avamar server on an existing VMware ESX® Server, leveraging the attached disk storage (up to 4 TB) and infrastructure. Since all aspects of the backup and recovery process are encapsulated and virtualized, control and management are also streamlined, reducing demands on your IT staff. Avamar Virtual Edition has the added benefit of cost-effective Avamar virtual-to-virtual, or Avamar virtual-to-physical server replication to meet your disaster recovery objectives.

    The EMC Avamar Business Edition is designed specifically for mid-market customers. This fully featured single-node solution eliminates the need to replicate data to another Avamar single-node.

    For remote offices, lightweight, efficient Avamar software agents can be deployed on servers with no additional remote hardware required. This enables data to be backed up directly over existing WAN connections to a central Avamar Data Store at the data center, eliminating the need for local tape backups and the risk associated with offsite tape shipment risks.

    For application-specific backup, Avamar uses a multi-streaming approach with EMC Data Domain Boost software to send business-critical application data directly to a Data Domain system.
  • OPTIMIZED PROTECTION FOR VIRTUAL INFRASTRUCTURE
  • Avamar deduplicates your backup data globally, across your physical and virtual servers.
    For virtualized environments, flexible backup options include guest- and image-level backups that leverage the latest VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V APIs. In all cases, only new, unique sub-file, variable-length data segments are transferred across the virtual/physical infrastructure. Avamar leverages VMware’s Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for faster backups and restores. For image backup, only Avamar maximizes throughput by load balancing across multiple proxy VMs. Avamar provides fast, single-step recovery of individual files or complete VM images to the original VM, an existing VM or a new VM. For VM images stored on a Data Domain Systems, a VM can be instantly accessed, and while running be vMotioned back to the production environment. Avamar is integrated into the VCE Vblock® Systems, and certified for VSPEX® Proven Infrastructure data protection.
  • EFFICIENT NAS BACKUP
  • Avamar provides fast, reliable NAS system backup and recovery via the Avamar NDMP Accel-erator node. With this approach, a level-0 backup is performed only once, during the initial full backup. Subsequent daily full backups are achieved by requesting only level-1 incremental dumps, dramatically reducing backup times and the impact on NAS resources. Avamar eliminates backup bottlenecks and provides the freedom to consolidate storage and optimize NAS systems—without limiting the number and size of files or volumes—to meet the backup window. Now with automated multi-streaming, Avamar can handle large scale-out NAS systems by delivering increased throughput to protection storage.
  • EFFICIENT DESKTOP/LAPTOP BACKUP
  • Avamar also delivers efficient desktop/laptop backup and recovery. It provides data deduplication, open-file backup, and CPU throttling. Avamar leverages existing network links, and since it operates in the background, it is not disruptive to end users. Data is automatically backed up when a user logs in during normal backup windows, or users can initiate their own backups on demand. Avamar also enables end users to quickly recover their own data anywhere, anytime, via an intuitive interface and integrated search engine. And recovery is always just one step. As a result, end users can easily recover their own data without lengthy calls to the IT help desk. This also frees the IT team to work on other projects.
