The IDPA DP4400 solution is a fully integrated, customer-installable appliance. It comes from the factory with much of the configuration already completed. Customers can quickly implement data protection by performing some physical, network, and license setup tasks. For example, the administrator must download the license file for Data Domain Virtual Edition, Avamar Virtual Edition, and Data Protection Advisor from Dell EMC Software Licensing Central.
DP4400 is simple to deploy and upgrade. It grows in place from 8 TB to 24 TB in 4 TB increments and from 24 TB to 96 TB in 12 TB increments. This scaling capability enables organizations to start small and add capacity as their S2D Ready Node infrastructure grows. Expanding the solution requires license keys only. Expansion does not require additional hardware or downtime, so the IT organization can quickly react to rapidly expanding protection requirements.
