Data Domain is upping the ante in in-line data deduplication performance, shortening the time needed for database backup for disaster recovery, remote office backup and multi-site tape consolidation.
The DD690 system offers aggregate throughput as high as 1.4 TB per hour, with single-stream throughput clocking in at 60 GB per hour. The device can be housed in a 16-unit array to offer a total aggregate throughput of 22 TB per hour, and can be combined with the DDX storage array that provides capacity upwards of 28 PB.
The 690 is powered by the Stream-Informed Segment Layout (SISL) architecture designed to lessen the amount of disk accesses required for deduplication. The system also makes use of multicore technology to reduce the need for over-provisioned storage subsystems to maintain high throughput.
The system also uses the company's Replicator Software to automate WAN vaulting and enable replication from up to 60 remote offices spread throughout the globe.
Volume shipments are expected by mid-summer.
