Lady Backup has spent the last 3 weeks in 3 different desert regions. It’s been glorious – sunny and 38C or hotter.
Here in Las Vegas for EMC World, the analogy was made to rain water in the desert and backup capacity. Rainwater vaporizes almost instantly when it hits scorching pavement, never really quenching the Earth. Similarly, no matter how much backup capacity added it is dwarfed by ever-growing data volumes. I wish I could take credit for the analogy (as you know I love analogies… the crazier the better. For example, see yesterday’s blog post). No, this analogy came from Pat Gelsinger, president and COO of EMC’s Information Infrastructure Products.
We can’t do much to help the rainfall situation in the desert but we have good news for parched data centers around the world. First, we introduced the new Data Domain DD990. This new high-end purpose built backup appliance is 6x faster and offers 3x more capacity than the competition.
While speed and capacity matter to keep up with the vastness of the digital universe, we’ve made some other enhancements with the DD990. For example, we’ve made enhancements with the Data Integrity Architecture, which gives you peace of mind by Continue Reading
