We like EMC Data Domain for a number of reasons, mostly because we’ve seen how much it benefits our customers. Taking a look at the big picture, we’ve found several common threads throughout our customers’ experiences with Data Domain. Here are a few of the benefits.

1. It’s Fast

Not many IT departments like slow backups; neither do we. We’ve found Data Domain to be at least 3 times faster than the closest competitor.

2. Job Savings

We’ve talked about this before, but if you don’t have your data properly backed up in the event of a disaster, your job will likely be on the line. We’d hate that for you, and we’re here to prevent it. You need network-efficient replication and role based access controls. Data Domain Management gives you encryption options for data-at-rest and data-in-flight.

3. Bandwidth-Savings

Replication should be front and center as you consider backups. Data Domain systems are designed to provide network-efficient replication. This allows you to use existing networks and minimize your WAN costs.

4. Scalability

Scalability allows you to expand to meet current and future growth needs quickly. With Data Domain you can add a few trays of drives quickly and get the capacity you need right away. We recommend Data Domain ES20 or ES30 shelves. 

5. Consolidation for Your Backups

Nobody likes to call Iron Mountain and wait around until their tape drives show up on a truck. Replace those pesky tape drives with a long-term and reliable backup solution. You can place all your backups in one device so you have access to them right away. 

6. High Deduplication Rates

With variable-length segmentation you get the highest deduplication rates possible, meaning less physical storage, smaller footprints and less infrastructure to manage!
