Storage Appliance Brings Deduplication and Compression to Microsoft DPM

The BridgeSTOR appliance reduces Microsoft Data Protection Manager storage requirements by up to 90 percent.

BridgeSTOR has expanded its line of Application Optimized Storage (AOS) Appliances with the introduction of its latest appliance for Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM), enabling SMB customers using DPM to lower capacity requirements by up to 90 percent.

The BridgeSTOR AOS Appliances for Microsoft DPM provide Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager environments with a capacity-efficient storage platform.† Virtual Storage – Advanced Data Reduction (VS-ADR) in the BridgeStor AOS DPM appliance is configured for Microsoft DPM environments. BridgeSTOR’s VS-ADR technology combines inline, ASIC-assisted block-level data compression and deduplication with Disk-on-Demand thin provisioning for scalable storage.

BridgeSTOR AOS Appliances for Microsoft Data Protection Manager address small and medium business and branch office storage needs by coupling data deduplication and compression with simplified administration, deployment and affordability. A 3.5 TB (physical capacity) “starter” system appears to DPM as 35 TB of virtual capacity, expandable to 10.5 TB of physical storage and 105 TB of virtual capacity.

System Center Data Protection Manager, pre-installed and pre-configured in the appliance, provides data protection for Microsoft Windows Server, Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and Hyper-V environments as well as corporate desktops and laptops. BridgeSTOR AOS appliances supply the block-level interface required for DPM Storage Pools while transparently providing hardware-accelerated data deduplication and compression to minimize storage pool capacity requirements. Data sent to DPM by servers, workstations and laptops is compressed and deduplicated both within and across Protection Groups.

With the use of hardware-accelerated data deduplication and compression, BridgeSTOR AOS Appliance for Microsoft DPM offers advanced data reduction without an impact on the user experience or changes to infrastructure. BridgeSTOR AOS Appliances also use Disk-on-Demand thin provisioning, enabling storage managers to allocate storage pools of varying sizes to DPM without physically installing storage hardware until needed.
