HCI enables organizations to respond quickly and effectively to new digital opportunities. It enables IT teams to use modern software-defined solutions that can reduce costs and simplify deployments and scalability. Dell EMC S2D Ready Nodes, based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, are validated and tested solutions that can be configured as needed for performance, capacity, and availability.
The IDPA DP4400 data protection solution for small- to medium-size S2D Ready Node ecosystems is a compact 2U appliance. It incorporates data protection software components that significantly reduce backup storage requirements, backup time, and network bandwidth usage. DP4400 is a comprehensive solution that includes, among other components, Avamar Virtual Edition backup and recovery software and the Data Domain Virtual Edition deduplication storage system. With a graphical, web-based interface, administrators can easily configure, monitor, and upgrade the solution, either locally or remotely. Organizations can begin with 8 TB and, through licensing alone, expand capacity up to 96 TB without adding hardware.
Dell EMC labs performed functional testing of the DP4400 solution with Dell EMC S2D Ready Nodes to validate the solution’s capabilities and ease of use. The DP4400 system successfully performed image-level backups and restores as well as folder-level and file‑level restores.
