As the newest addition to the Dell EMC PowerProtect portfolio, Dell EMC PowerProtect DD Series Appliances are built to “simplify” and provide operational efficiencies for data protection for multi-cloud workloads. To sum up, PowerProtect DD would offer:

  • Performance – With “fast” backups and restores, PowerProtect DD includes instant access and instant restore of up to 60,000 IOPS for up to 64 virtual machines, and support for 25GbE and 100GbE network speeds.
  • Efficiency – PowerProtect DD would be highly efficient, providing up to 1.25PB of usable capacity in a single rack with hardware-assisted compression, improving logical capacity significantly while driving data reduction. This smaller footprint would deliver sginificant power and cooling savings as well, increasing ROI for organizations.
  • Scalability – With flexibility and agility at its core and available in multiple configurations, PowerProtect DD provides scalability and grow-in place capacity expansion, ranging from 1 terabyte up to 1.25PB.
  • Data protection for multi-cloud workloads – PowerProtect DD would provide operational “efficiency, resiliency and scalability” across on-premises and hybrid cloud environments. It has an extensive cloud ecosystem with support across multiple public clouds and can natively tier deduplicated data, delivering cost-effective, long-term retention.
  • Single pane of glass management – With PowerProtect DD Management Center, customers can gain aggregated management for multiple systems, manage capacity and replications, and monitor the health and status of all their appliances on-premises and in the cloud.

“PowerProtect DD allows us to deliver the most efficient, scalable and cost-effective enterprise class backup to our customers,” said Richard McMahon, group technical operations director, iomart Group. “It provides us with maximum capacity in a smaller footprint, with best in class deduplication, compression and a simple to use DD System Manager.”
