New Dell EMC Data Domain DD3300 boosts enterprise-level data protection for SMBs, enterprise remote and branch office environments

Dell EMC announced this week that it is expanding its modern protection storage portfolio with Dell EMC Data Domain DD3300, a new platform designed to deliver enterprise-level data protection to small to mid-size organizations and remote/branch office environments of larger enterprises.

Data Domain DD3300 is purpose built for modernizing data protection of small to mid-size organizations and enterprise remote/branch office environments. DD3300 is simple and comprehensive, cloud-ready, and offers multi-site scalability.

DD3300 offers Dell EMC’s comprehensive data protection capabilities, including inline encryption and DD Boost for faster backups and lower network usage. DD3300 also  provides coverage for aa application ecosystem, from enterprise to homegrown applications. A 2U appliance that enables users to start small and expand capacity as needs increase, and with an average data reduction rate in the range of 10 to 55 times, the DD3300 will provide an impressive ROI along with cost savings, bringing greater scalability and significant reduction in WAN bandwidth use for backups and recovery.

With DD3300, Dell EMC is delivering enterprise-class protection storage that customers trust in a compact, 2U protection storage appliance – purpose-built and ready to deliver backup, archiving, disaster recovery and long-term cloud retention.

DD3300 is available in three configurations based on useable capacity – 4TB, 16TB or 32TB. With Dell EMC’s advanced deduplication and native cloud-tiering, DD3300 can manage up to 4.8 PB of logical capacity.

Organizations face many challenges and conflicting priorities including data growth, supporting an ever-growing number of applications, an increasingly stringent regulatory and compliance environment, and continuously shrinking budgets. For organizations of all sizes, small to large, it is paramount for business success, more than ever before, that their data is protected and that they can leverage cloud for flexibility agility and economics.

To enable smaller IT environments to simply extend to the cloud for long-term retention, DD3300 supports Data Domain Cloud Tier.  With DD3300, organizations can natively-tier deduplicated data to the cloud for long-term retention without the need for a separate cloud gateway or a virtual appliance. This compact Data Domain delivers cost-effective long-term retention on a cloud ecosystem including Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) and major public clouds.

DD3300 also supports Data Domain Cloud Disaster Recovery service. In conjunction with Dell EMC Data Protection Software, the Data Domain Cloud Disaster Recovery enables virtual machine images protected on Data Domain DD3300 to be copied to object storage within the public cloud for a modern, cost efficient disaster recovery solution that takes advantage of the cloud.

With elegant, multi-site scalability with the included capabilities of Data Domain Replicator, DD3300 provides fast, network-efficient and encrypted replication from remote offices to the central data center. It only transfers deduplicated data across the network, eliminating up to 98 percent of the bandwidth required. With its compact design, DD3300 is ideal for multi-site scenarios with remote and/or branch IT environments that house data separate from the central IT environment.

To maximize the return on investment and get the most out of Dell EMC’s advanced deduplication, Data Domain DD3300 can be paired with modern data protection software. With DD3300 and Dell EMC Data Protection software, customers can amplify the logical capacity and cloud capabilities, benefit from an intuitive user-friendly interface for simpler management, and take advantage of advanced VMware automation and integration capabilities.

Dell EMC Data Domain 3300 is generally available through Dell EMC and channel partners.
