EMC Data Domain Extended Retension
EMC Data Domain Extended Retention software, using an internal tiering approach, enables cost-effective, long-term retention of backup data
on deduplicated disk. It offers significant optimization for long-term cost efficiency and granular fault-containment and recovery.
  • Fast Inline Deduplication: Up to 31 TB/hr performance; CPU-centric scalability
  • Scalable Deduplication Storage: Reduces archive storage requirements by up to 5x
  • Data Invulnerability Architecture: Inline write/read verification, continuous fault detection and healing; Dual disk parity RAID 6
  • Easy Integration: Supports leading enterprise backup and archive applications for database, file, email, virtual environments and more
  • Backup and Archive Consolidation: Simultaneously supports backup and archive data; Meets governance policies and compliance regulations for archive data
  • Fast, Efficient and Scalable Disaster Recovery: Reduce bandwidth requirements by up to 99 percent; Reduce bandwidth requirements by up to 99 percent; Replicate from up to 270 remote sites into a single system
  • Operational Simplicity: Lower administrative costs; Automatic call-home reporting; Reduced footprint
  • Cloud-Reay: Secure multi-tenancy provides logical isolation of user data

    Data Domain Extended Retention software transparently incorporates two tiers of storage on a Data Domain system to
    achieve cost-effective scalability, while delivering the high throughput required to ingest hundreds of terabytes of backup
    data. With DD Extended Retention, Data Domain systems provide up to 31 TB/hour throughput and scale up to 100PB of logical capacity. This combination of high throughput and cost-optimized storage makes Data Domain systems the ideal tape reduction solution for longterm backup retention.

    Data Domain Extended Retention software provides a transparent separation of short-term and long-term backup data by storing it in different tiers on Data Domain systems. Data is initially stored in the active tier of a Data Domain system for backup and operational recovery. Based on user-defined policies, the aged backup data is then moved to a very large retention tier that is optimized for long-term data retention—usually measured in years.

    The Data Domain system is designed as the storage of last resort—a petabyte-scale system that is the persistent location for all data when it comes to protection and retention. The system can grow to a large scale and operate for a much longer lifespan than traditional storage systems. To ensure long-term data access and recoverability, Data Domain systems with DD Extended Retention software offer a new and unique “fault isolation” feature. Specifically, the retention tier consists of multiple retention units. Each retention unit is sealed when it reaches full capacity and becomes a self-contained unit to ensure long-term data preservation. As a result, even if a failure or a catastrophe affects major components of a Data Domain system, the system continues to operate with all unaffected components.

    Leveraging this new architecture enabled by DD Extended Retention, Data Domain systems also provide granular replication configurations for disaster recovery.

    The EMC Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture provides the industry’s best defense against data integrity issues. Inline write and read verification protects against, and automatically recovers from, data integrity issues during data ingest and retrieval. Capturing and correcting I/O errors inline during the backup process eliminates the need to repeat backup jobs, ensuring backups complete on time and satisfy service-level agreements. Continuous fault detection and self-healing features protect data throughout its lifecycle on all Data Domain systems.

    DD OS provides secure multi-tenancy that enables data protection-as-aservice for large enterprises and services providers who are looking to offer services based on Data Domain in a private or public cloud.
