SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Data Domain, Inc. (Nasdaq: DDUP), the leading provider of deduplication storage systems, today announced a major advancement for its midrange systems that drives continued price/performance increases into its product line. The new DD660, a quad-core processor based system, provides up to 50% price/performance improvement and a 50% larger base system capacity as compared to its dual-core predecessor. Like all Data Domain systems, the new DD660 leverages the power of the Data Domain SISL (Stream-Informed Segment Layout) scaling architecture to dramatically increase throughput performance. Data Domain systems continue to ride the price performance wave of multi-core processor architectures and avoid dependency on oversized storage subsystems for throughput. In addition, the company is now supporting 1 TB disk drives, both in the base model DD660 and in all expansion shelves for both the DD660 and DD690.

The new DD660 midrange system offers up to 2 TB/hour of aggregate inline deduplication throughput, and up to 700 GB/hour for a single stream. It supports up to 36 TB of raw capacity, or with 20x-50x data reduction, from 520 TB to 1.3 PB of logical capacity. The base model includes 12 TB of disk in a 2U rack mount chassis. Overall, the DD660 delivers major price/performance improvements to backup and recovery processes and more capacity for extended online retention.
