Need more protection for your VMware environment? Consider EMC Data Protection Suite for VMware
Earlier in the 4th Quarter of 2015, EMC announced a package deal featuring the Data Protection Suite crossed with VMware socket-based licensing to take on the likes of Veeam, head-on. The solution promises to simplify data protection in VMware environments. In this blog post, we want to highlight the features and benefits of this solution.
What does EMC Data Protection Suite for VMware offer?
Data Protection Suite for VMware promises a simplified backup and archiving solution that includes the following:
- Continuous data protection that satisfies stringent RPO requirements for application consistency.
- Efficient backup and recovery that reduces backup time, network traffic and backup storage requirements.
- Scalable and flexible data protection-as-a-service through vRealize automation.
- vAdmin for role-based access to the backup system for self-service.
With regard to the way it’s licensed, that’s simple too.
- This is only available for VMware environments.
- The product now supports up to seven physical servers.
- It includes up to seven physical servers.
- There is a minimum of five sockets and a maximum of 150 sockets.
- There is a minimum of 15VM’s and a maximum of 1000 VM’s.
What are the options for expanded capability?
The options for backup storage consist of a physical Avamar appliance node or grid or a physical Avamar node or grid with a data domain. In small environments, options include a single Avamar node for metadata storage and a DD2200 or DD2500 (depending on capacity needs). For customers with an existing Avamar or Avamar and data domain footprint, the DPS for VMware solution would be an option that wouldn’t require any new hardware.
