DPS4VM: Now Avamar node for 0$

December 16th, 2015 | Posted by Claude Belloni in Avamar | DPAD - (0 Comments)

From now on, when quoting DPS for VMware we will, if required by the partner, offer the Avamar metadata node for free.platform-avamar

PSC from today will apply this in the quotes, as long as the partner asks for Price Assistance and

requests the Avamar node for free and indicates which model the customer needs.

This will enable us to be much more competitive against VEEAM and Commvault.

When DPSuite for  VMware (model 456-110-832) is quoted   (must be on the cart)

  1.  The Avamar metadata node  model AVMA600FG4S (m600 node) or model AVMA1200FG4S (m1200 node)
    can be provided at 100% discount along with associated maintenance
  2. Quantity of metadata node could be 2 if the customer is replicating their environment
  3. Both nodes would be 100% discount along with associated maintenance.

Partner and/or EMC Sales Rep need to request the node at 100% discount in a Price Assistance and specify which Avamar model the need: AVMA600FG4S (m600 node) or model AVMA1200FG4S (m1200 node) and the quantity: 1 or 2.

Die bereits angekündigte Data Domain OS Version 5.7 steht nun als Directed Availability (DA) zum Download bereit.EMC Data Domain

Die wichtigsten Highlights im Überblick:

Verbesserungen und Erweiterungen hinsichtlich Management, Sicherheit, Verfügbarkeit und Skalierbarkeit

  • Physische Kapazitätsmessung: Point-in-time Reports, die die physikalische Belegung auf File-, Directory-, MTree- oder Mandanten-Ebene ausweisen.
  • Verbesserung im Mandanten-Management: In Verbindung mit der physischen Kapazitätsmessung kann die geschützte Kapazität pro Mandant ausgewertet werden. Zudem können Limits hinsichtlich Kapazität und Durchsatz pro Mandant gesetzt werden.
  • Erhöhte Skalierbarkeit: Erhöhung der max. MTree-Anzahl um Faktor 4 (DD4200, DD4500, DD7200, DD990, DD9500), sowie 1,7-mal so viele parallele Streams für die DD9500.
  • DS60 Erweiterungseinheiten: Die neuen DS60-Shelves beinhalten bis zu 60 Platten (3 TB bzw. 4 TB). Sie sind für die Systeme DD4200 (nur 3 TB HDDs), DD4500, DD7200 und DD9500 verfügbar.
  • Support für 4 TB Platten: Für die bekannten ES30- und die neuen DS60-Shelves sind nun die 4 TB verfügbar. ES30 und DS60 mit 4 TB Platten werden für die Systeme DD4500, DD7200 und DD9500 unterstützt.
  • Online Shelf Migration: Mit dem neuen DDOS 5.7 ist es möglich, Daten von älteren und somit meist gering kapazitiven Shelves im laufenden Betrieb auf neue Shelves mit größerer Kapazität zu migrieren. Die Migration kann erfolgen, ohne dass bestehende Backupoperationen abgebrochen oder angehalten werden müssen.
