EMC Intros VMware-Based Avamar

HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced the new EMCR AvamarR Virtual Edition for VMwareR Infrastructure and EMC Avamar Data Store, two innovative solutions that extend EMC's leading data de-duplication software capabilities and transform the way customers evaluate and approach data protection.

EMC Avamar software already provides customers with dramatic data de-duplication benefits for VMware, reducing the time to back up data by up to 90%. With the new EMC Avamar Virtual Edition for VMware Infrastructure, this new, fully virtualized deployment model combines those de-duplication gains with the server and storage efficiencies of VMware's Virtual Infrastructure. VMware customers can now deploy EMC Avamar software within the virtual infrastructure and eliminate the need for dedicated backup server infrastructure, while dramatically speeding backups and simplifying backup management.

In addition, EMC is introducing the new EMC Avamar Data Store, a complete, packaged solution consisting of leading EMC Avamar data de-duplication backup and recovery software running on pre-configured EMC-certified hardware. Together these new offerings simplify and expand the deployment options for EMC Avamar's patented global de-duplication software to manage backup growth for remote offices, branch offices, datacenter LANs, and VMware environments. Avamar backup software solves traditional backup challenges by storing only a single copy of sub-file data segments across sites and servers, dramatically reducing the amount of data that is backed-up daily.

EMC Avamar Virtual Edition for VMware Infrastructure - Continuing to Improve Data Protection in VMware Environments

As the first fully virtualized de-duplication solution for backup and recovery, the new Avamar Virtual Edition for VMware Infrastructure continues to strengthen the value proposition of the two combined solutions.
Complementing EMC's recently announced integration of Avamar software with VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) for fast and efficient backup within and across virtual machines, Avamar Virtual Edition enables customers to deploy Avamar's de-duplication technology easily, effectively and in a repeatable fashion on VMware ESX Server hosts.
