EMC Simplifies CDP & DR

HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC - News), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced groundbreaking advances in its heterogeneous data protection software family for local and remote replication, EMC RecoverPoint. EMC RecoverPoint provides customers with the ability to quickly and consistently recover data with minimal business disruption in the event of a disaster, corruption or other outage. The solution attained commercial success in 2007, achieving triple digit revenue growth, year over year, with close to 400 customers leveraging the solution.

EMC RecoverPoint contains key new features for customers in version 3.0 that improve data protection investments, installations and management. Now, EMC RecoverPoint can protect and replicate the same data in local and remote- site combinations for operational and disaster recovery to maximize protection and minimize technology investments. Also, EMC has added unique RecoverPoint functionality and integration with EMC CLARiiON® CX3 networked storage systems that simplify RecoverPoint deployments, and broaden support for host operating systems and VMware® environments.

EMC RecoverPoint's expanded integration with CLARiiON CX3 arrays now provides additional support for a number of servers including Windows, Linux, Solaris and VMware ESX environments. The RecoverPoint family is fully tested and qualified for replicating VMware File System data on CLARiiON CX3 arrays.

With this extended support, customers can now deploy RecoverPoint in three different scenarios, including:

  • Heterogeneous storage environments where customers leverage intelligent
    fabrics via the EMC Connectrix® family of products.
  • EMC CLARiiON CX3 environments where customers leverage the storage
    processor to perform array-based splitting.
  • Environments where customers utilize the host-based driver to perform
    the write-splitting function.
