During the second Dell Storage Forum Paris keynote, Dell has announced the new Dell PowerVault DL2300 appliance powered by CommVault Simpana® 9 software to deliver new levels of integrated, scalable and simplified data protection to safeguard information for medium-to-large, distributed organizations.
Mainly it is a PowerEdge G12 server (seems the R720 with full disk chassis), 2U rackmountable and expandable with more MD1200 box.
The PowerVault DL2300 is the fourth generation of Dell’s PowerVault disk-based data protection appliances designed to help IT departments manage massive data growth, improve resource efficiency and reduce storage consumption to achieve service level agreements, business objectives and compliance requirements.
Enterprise-wide Data Protection Deployed in Minutes
The PowerVault DL2300 combines Dell’s cutting-edge Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers with Simpana modern data protection software to offer large enterprises integrated data backup, recovery, replication, archiving, deduplication, search and analytics for both physical and virtual servers. Simpana 9 software is pre-configured and pre-tested on the PowerVault DL2300, so large enterprises can quickly transition from setup to scale-out data protection in less than an hour. Customers can unify data protection and long-term retention with key innovations including:
- Scalable, best-in-class data protection: The PowerVault DL2300 offers up to 192 TB of deduplication storage, which is twice the capacity of previous-generation PowerVault appliances. The new appliance incorporates latest-generation processor and memory capabilities to optimize deduplication database configurations for higher backup performance. These innovations now allow large enterprises to easily and economically protect large scale modern data centers that span both on-premise and cloud-based deployments. Distributed enterprises can simplify and speed up operations by replacing tape backup and error-prone, manual processes with disk storage managed from a centralized location.
- Slashing time and cost with automated management: The PowerVault DL2300 powered by CommVault can cut administrative time and overhead with built-in, policy-based automation for multiple data and information management processes. From a single console, users can easily manage hardware snapshots for Dell Compellent, EqualLogic and PowerVault MD storage arrays to speed backup and recovery while scaling to protect thousands of virtual machines across the enterprise. Embedded source-and target deduplication can cut backup and archive storage needs in half while reducing network traffic by up to 90 percent. Customers can also lower primary storage requirements and costs by using CommVault’s integrated archive to move, index and retain email, file and NAS data.
- Centralize corporate desktop and laptop backup and deliver self-service, mobile access: Administrators can extend protection to client systems at the edge and provide secure self-service access for a mobile workforce using supported iOS, Android and Blackberry devices. Integrated content indexing provides intuitive, comprehensive search for enterprise wide eDiscovery needs.
- The Dell PowerVault DL2300 Appliance powered by CommVault is available immediately in two configurations: a value edition targeted for remote offices and an enterprise edition well suited for data centers and medium-to-large enterprise environments.
- Both configurations include CommVault Simpana 9 software’s capacity-based licensing for backup and archiving, which enables customers to protect servers and applications based on the amount of data under protection.
