Storage, security, virtualization, and cloud computing innovator EMC≤ has announced updates to its Data Domain deduplication storage systems and SourceOne archiving software. The corporation says the updates change “the data protection game” by delivering enhanced backup and archiving performance and efficiency as well as an expanded partner ecosystem and reduced cost and complexity.
“There is no more important job for an IT department than protecting its company’s data,” states Peter Smails, EMC’s senior director of product marketing, backup recovery systems. “But IT faces the Herculean task of ensuring that data is both recoverable and accessible for as long as needed, all while dealing with limited resources and flat budgets.”
To meet those challenges, Smails says, EMC is committed to its backup and archiving solutions.
