Data replication is an essential piece of disaster recovery planning for organizations large and small. By replicating data sets to an off-site location, organizations can more easily recover data after catastrophic events like outages, natural disasters, human error or cyberattack.
Yet even as organizations recognize the need for data replication, the cost of replicating data can be quite high and the task of managing it can be burdensome for IT teams already overwhelmed by competing priorities.
Dell EMC provides advanced data replication technology that reduces both the cost and complexity of replication to improve disaster recovery readiness.
Historically, tape backup has been the method of choice for organizations managing a disaster recovery strategy. Copies of on-premises data were transferred to tape, which was then delivered to an off-site location for secure storage.
As data volumes continue to grow exponentially, disaster recovery through tape backup has become extraordinarily costly and difficult to manage, and data replication has replaced tape backup as the primary tool for disaster recovery.
However, data replication is not without its challenges. Replicating backup and archiving data can consume vast amounts of storage and WAN bandwidth, significantly increasing the cost of disaster recovery operations. Managing replication of data in increasingly diverse IT environments – where data may be stored on premises, in virtualized environments, or in hybrid and multi-cloud environments – adds additional burden to IT administrators. And managing the specifics of compliance with a large number of ever-evolving regulatory frameworks can easily overwhelm IT teams.
As a market-leading provider of data protection and backup systems, Dell EMC offers advanced data replication solutions in Data Domain Replicator, or DD Replicator. This software solution is provided in conjunction with Data Domain, a highly scalable, reliable and cloud-enabled backup appliance. Data Domain simplifies data backup and protection of data no matter where it resides – on-premises, in virtual environments or in the cloud – and accelerates backups by up to complete more backups in less time and provide faster, more reliable restores.
Data Domain Replicator offers automated, policy-based, network-efficient and encrypted data replication for disaster recovery and multi-site backup and archive consolidation. Data Domain Replicator software solves the challenges of replication with technology that enables you to:
Data Domain Replicator offer significant benefits for data replication that includes:
What is data replication?
Data replication is the process of making a copy of data and storing it in a separate location to enable disaster recovery or to improve accessibility.
What makes data replication with Dell EMC a superior technology?
Dell EMC data replication technology accelerates backup, reducing the need for and cost of WAN bandwidth. Dell EMC also provides advanced deduplication technology to reduce the footprint of disaster recovery storage, reducing storage costs.
Why is deduplication important in data replication?
Deduplication enables data replication processes to copy, transfer and store only unique data, helping to speed data replication and reduce data replication costs.
