EMC Data Domain Virtual Tape Library Software


Hi – I’m Caitlin Gordon from the EMC Backup
Recovery Systems Division. I’m here today to talk to you about the Data Domain Virtual
Tape Library software option, which enables Data Domain systems to provide high-speed,
inline deduplication in SAN environments. Today’s we’ll discuss how DD VTL is scalable
and provides easy integration as well as multi-site disaster recovery. EMC Data Domain Virtual Tape Library software
eliminates tape-related failures by enabling all Data Domain systems to emulate multiple
tape devices over a Fibre Channel interface. Data Domain VTL software can emulate up to
64 virtual tape libraries with up to 540 virtual tape drives. DD VTL software provides up to
64,000 virtual slots and an unlimited number of virtual tape cartridges. Data Domain VTL software is qualified with
leading open systems and IBM i enterprise backup applications, and easily integrates
into existing Fibre Channel SAN backup environments. Data Domain systems simultaneously support
backup through VTL over Fibre Channel, NDMP over Ethernet for NAS, NFS and CIFS over Ethernet,
and EMC Data Domain Boost. This deployment flexibility and simple administration means
you can rapidly adjust to changing requirements. Using EMC Data Domain Virtual Tape Library
software, virtual tape cartridges can be replicated over the WAN to another site for DR. With
Data Domain deduplication technology, the amount of data transmitted is reduced by 99
percent, to a size where network-efficient replication is economically and operationally
feasible. Using minimal bandwidth, and with significant savings over other advanced replication
alternatives, you now have a cost-effective DR solution for all of your SAN data. Finally,
if confidentiality is required, deduplicated and compressed data can be encrypted in-flight
when being replicated between Data Domain systems. To summarize, DD VTL software is scalable
and provides easy integration as well as multi-site disaster recovery. For more information about Data Domain systems,
