Companies of all sizes increasingly struggle to manage the relentless growth of data. Essential to the business yet often redundant in nature, data can strain storage and backup processes as administrators strive to ensure data availability and integrity while still meeting capacity and backup window constraints. The Dell DR4000 deduplication and compression backup appliance can help customers alleviate these growing problems. By removing redundant data from the backup work stream, the DR4000 can drastically reduce the storage footprint, enable backup data to remain on disk and online longer, provide faster and more reliable restores, and reduce tape management complexity.

Optimize your data management while reducing reliance on tape backups with the Dell DR4000 disk-based data protection and recovery solution.

  • Protect your investment — all inclusive licensing model with no hidden costs.
  • Enhance workflow performance with target-based deduplication, helping reduce bandwidth requirements for data transfer by up to 15 times.
  • Simplify your IT operations by making data preservation and recovery significantly easier.

Common data types that would be backed up to the DR4000 target appliance —Exchange, SQL, Oracle, VM's, etc.

  • Streamline backup
    DR4000 is a fast, disk-based backup, data protection and recovery solution appliance that helps reduce workflow processes.
  • Eliminate redundant data
    Help ease the pain of data growth and reduce disk capacity requirements by up to 93 percent.
  • Cost-effective
    Its all-inclusive licensing model helps ensure future features and additional benefits at no additional cost. Replication capability is included with DR4000.

Advanced data protection and disaster recovery

DR4000 has built-in data protection safeguards in both hardware and software to verify backup integrity. The non-volatile RAM (NV-RAM) is designed to ensure data protection in case of a power loss and proactively detects corruption due to faulty hardware. The DR4000 target appliance has a RAID 6 configuration, allowing for up to two simultaneous hard drive failures without service interruption. Early Write software feature continuously validates data integrity.

Improved disaster recovery capability is provided by the DR4000 through deduplicated replication. Replication enables better disaster tolerance without the operational costs associated with transporting data offsite on physical tape. Replication can be scheduled to occur during non-peak periods and prioritizes ingest data over replication data to ensure optimal back up windows. Deduplication coupled with replication can minimize the costs and inefficiencies associated with distributed backup environments.

Effective management is critical for obtaining full value from deduplication deployments. The DR4000 provides a graphical interface giving an overview of the system, including system status, hardware and software alerts, storage capacity and savings, and important system information such as system and software versions.

The DR4000 automatically monitors the health of the hardware and verifies the integrity of the system software. The health status of the system is reported in the graphical user interface. Critical hardware and software issues are displayed in the graphical user interface and can be sent via email and SNMP traps for immediate notification. 

The DR4000 includes the Dell Remote Access Controller 6 (iDRAC6) Enterprise option providing full remote management including remote keyboard, mouse and video (KVM) console, remote virtual media, power control and event management. The system also provides a rich CLI (command-line interface) which can be used to script operations needed to manage the system.

Future-proof your data center

A cornerstone technology of the Dell Fluid Data Architecture, Dell's deduplication and compression technology found in the DR4000 delivers a data reduction and protection solution with the future built-in. By accelerating and streamlining the backup process the DR4000 ensures that information restores are delivered in a timely and accurate manner — in time with business needs. Less data and less management processes frees up administrator time to work on more strategically important initiatives, at the same time that protection against downtime and disaster has been augmented. The DR4000 changes the economics of disk-based data protection.
