Protect your data
Simplify the backup process while lowering your total cost of ownership with the only integrated hardware, software and services solution powered by Symantec™ Backup Exec 2010. Shipped with factory-installed Symantec software and a wizard-driven setup and management utility, the PowerVault™ DL Appliance enables you to set up and configure your storage space for immediate use, or even add more disks, in less than 25 minutes.
Deduplication Option Offers Savings, Simplicity and Adaptability
Even in this era of massive data growth, the PowerVault DL Appliance with Backup Exec 2010 deduplication option helps you optimize your storage capacity by limiting duplicate storage blocks and leaving only one copy of the data to be stored. Full indexing is retained, however, should the data ever be required again. The system is designed to be more cost-effective than similar tape solutions.
Integrated Tape Support
The PowerVault DL Appliance is available with the Dell PowerVault TL2000, TL4000 or ML6000 tape library integrated into the full solution. Take advantage of backup-to-disk for quick availability, and then transfer to tape from the same management console for off-site disaster recovery.
Faster, More Reliable Backup
Not only can tape-based backups be complex and time-consuming, but they're also prone to failure and often exceed their backup window. Disk-based backup with the PowerVault DL Appliance powered by Symantec is fast and reliable, enabling you to restore with confidence.
Better than Virtual Tape Library
Virtual tape libraries (VTLs) are "point products" that can help fix backup and recovery bottlenecks in the short term. However, they are separate components that create silos of information and add management complexity. Virtual tapes have to be created, provisioned and managed from a separate interface, and VTL products lack alerting and reporting functions within the backup solution. The PowerVault DL Appliance is a native, disk-to-disk solution that eliminates the need for manual setup and management. It automatically and dynamically provisions disks and gives you proactive monitoring, alerts and reporting.
Remote Backup, Management, Monitoring and Maintenance
You can use the PowerVault DL Appliance to back up data from remote offices to your data center, setting up backup tasks and policies, as well as performing system monitoring and maintenance from a central location. This makes the PowerVault DL Appliance the ideal backup solution for remote offices that do not have IT administrators on site.
Granular Recovery Technology for Speedy Restores
With Symantec's Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) for critical Microsoft applications, including Exchange, SharePoint (MOSS) and Active Directory, you can recover granular objects from a single-pass backup by simply browsing and selecting it. GRT lets you recover specific items, such as public folders and individual mailboxes, email messages, attachments and calendar items, without a time-consuming full restore.
Integration between archiving and backup
Improving archiving complements backup by helping companies identify what to store, what to delete and when to move older data to secondary systems while ensuring fast discovery and recovery of older data. The DL Appliance powered by Symantec provides the options to integrate archiving and backup, helping customers to control storage costs and recovery times. The DL Appliance with Backup Exec 2010 Agent for Enterprise Vault now supports Enterprise Vault 10 beta backup, recovery and migration. Additionally, the Backup Exec Archive Option for Exchange now includes Virtual Vault, allowing users to access archived emails directly from within Outlook.
Continuous Data Protection for Exchange and File
The PowerVault DL Appliance powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 continuously protects Microsoft® Exchange and file data by backing up changes to the disk as they occur. Not only does this improve overall data protection, but it also reduces administrative complexity by eliminating the need for full, incremental or differential backups for Exchange data.
Protection for Desktops and Laptops
The Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) with Backup Exec 2010 lets you automatically sync and protect multiple desktops and laptops using a network share. You can choose continuous, scheduled or manual backups through an intuitive interface that lets you access your latest data, even when you are on the road.
Protection for VMware Virtual Machines
Licensing requirements can make managing backups on virtual machines difficult and expensive. The PowerVault DL Appliance powered by Symantec™ Backup Exec 2010 incorporates award-winning technology for virtual machine protection. The Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructure includes protection for an unlimited number of guests on an individual ESX host. In addition, Backup Exec 2010 leverages several VMware technologies, including VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB), that make backing up and restoring virtual machines faster and easier.
The DL Appliance powered by Symantec’s Backup Exec 2010 delivers improved backup and deduplication performance in virtualized environments. The new “V-Ray” technology embedded into the core solution gives customers x-ray vision to easily see, protect, and recover their virtual machines with the same solution that protects their physical environments. Additionally, Symantec’s Backup Exec Management Plug-in for VMware is now part of the standard agent for VMware providing Backup Exec management through vCenter.

Reliable disk-based backup and faster restores than tape
Managing tapes can be complex and time consuming. Backups to tape often exceed their backup window, and tape-based backups can fail. Disk-based backup with the PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec can reduce cost and time associated with with tape-based backup, and reduce backup time, helping you meet your ever shrinking backup windows.
Archiving technology with the benefits of deduplication
The DL Appliance powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 integrates new archiving technology by utilizing Symantec Enterprise Vault for Exchange and Files server environments. This technology copies data from the backup source off to the archive "vault" where it's indexed – thus avoiding any performance impact on the source server. Archived data is then deleted on the Exchange or File system source. This can improve server performance, reduce backup times and keep Exchange and File server storage at predictable levels. During the archive process it can extended the "deduplication everywhere" savings to secondary storage environments by delivering the benefits of deduplication to the archive environment as well, which can allow administrators to easily consolidate data and maximize disk as archive storage for management and resource savings.
Better than VTL
Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs) are "point products" that can help fix backup and recovery bottlenecks in the short run. But they're also separate "boxes" that create silos of information and add management complexity. Virtual tapes have to be created, provisioned, and managed, and VTL products lack alerting and reporting within the backup solution. The PowerVault DL Appliance is a native, disk-to-disk solution that is designed to eliminate the need for manual setup and management. It automatically and dynamically provisions disk, invisibly to the user, and gives you proactive monitoring, alerts, and reporting.
Integrated tape support
The PowerVault DL Appliance is available with the Dell PowerVault TL2000, TL4000, or ML6000 tape library integrated into the full solution. Take advantage of backup-to-disk for quick availability then transfer to tape from the same management console for offsite disaster recovery. It is the first of Dell's TierDisk family of products, designed to provide cost-optimized solutions for secondary storage environments for data protection and data management.
Easy to understand virtual disk layout options
The PowerVault DL Appliance allows the user to choose between several options during their initial set up within the First Time Boot Utility. You can choose between extra redundancy or more capacity (RAID-6 virtual disks or RAID-5), as well as the presence or absence of a hot-spare. This option to configure gives you more freedom to configure the DL Appliance to meet your specific needs.
Remote backup, management, monitoring, and maintenance
Your data center administrators can use the PowerVault DL Appliance to backup data from remote offices to the data center. Administrators can set up backup tasks and policies and do system monitoring and maintenance from a central location. This makes the PowerVault DL Appliance the ideal backup solution for remote offices that don't have IT experts on-site. You can also use the PowerVault DL Appliance's remote backup and management features to create a disaster recovery solution, when you transfer data from your data center to another PowerVault DL Appliance at a secondary location.
Granular recovery technology for speedy restores
With Symantec Backup Exec's patent-pending Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) for critical Microsoft applications, including file, Exchange, SharePoint (MOSS), and Active Directory, your administrator can recover granular objects from a single-pass backup by simply browsing and selecting it. GRT lets you recover specific items such as public folders and individual mailboxes — even individual Emails, attachments, and calendar items — all without a timeconsuming full restore.
Protection for VMware virtual machines with low cost and complexity
Managing backups on virtual machines can be difficult and expensive due to licensing requirements. The PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 incorporates award-winning technology for virtual machine protection. The Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructure includes protection for an unlimited number of guests on an individual ESX host. In addition, Backup Exec 2010 leverages VMware VStorage APIs for offhost backup of VMs.
The DL Appliance with Symantec Backup Exec 2010 has improved backup performance by using a new "V-Ray" technology. This is embedded into the core solution and gives customers an x-ray like vision to easily see, protect, and recover their virtual machines with the same solution that protects their physical environments.
Symantec's Backup Exec Management Plug-in for VMware is now part of the standard agent for VMware providing Backup Exec management through vCenter. This provides insight into VMware backups to protect status view of all VM's, identify the last time you ran your backup, identify if it was a full or incremental or differential and when the next one is scheduled. In addition, this Plug-in can give you a view into unprotected machines.
Protection for desktops and laptops
Backup Exec's 2010 Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) lets users automatically protect multiple desktops and laptops via a network share. DLO lets users choose continuous, scheduled, or manual backups and provides an intuitive interface that lets users access their most up-to-date data whether they're in the office or on the road.
New security layer
The way the new security layer works is it uses a standards based solution already used by the World Wide Web. Transport Layer Security (TLS) and it's older sibling, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) provides support from the agent to the server, providing an extra layer of security for customers that transmit backup data across the WAN or to a private cloud. The new security layer enables mutual authentication via certificates, and can help assures attackers are kept out of sensitive backup operations.
