ORLANDO, Fla. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today further extended the broadest portfolio of backup and recovery technology in the industry with the announcement of the world's largest single system virtual tape library (VTL), the latest versions of its industry-leading data de-duplication, replication and backup software, and new bare metal recovery capabilities.

Helping customer's to build tomorrow's information infrastructure, EMC today announced:

  • The industry's largest and fastest open systems virtual tape library. The EMC Disk Library (DL) 6000 series can store up to 1.8 petabytes of information in a single appliance and can backup more than 11 terabytes of data per hour. Based on the EMC® Symmetrix® DMX-3 storage platform, the new EMC DL6000 models provide the highest levels of scalability, performance and software capabilities in the industry. The EMC Disk Library family is the leading open systems virtual tape solution in the industry.

  • The latest version of EMC Avamar® data de-duplication software featuring integration with VMware® technology. Avamar software version 3.7 now supports VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) software, reducing backup times of virtual machines by up to 90%. Additionally, Avamar software now includes expanded file server support, enabling faster backups of EMC Celerra® network-attached storage (NAS) systems.

  • EMC HomeBaseTM, new software that provides bare metal recovery of servers. HomeBase software simplifies server management through highly automated recovery of server capabilities in the event of a hardware failure or disaster. This new software provides greater protection using a unique feature that captures a server's status more frequently to provide faster recoveries. HomeBase is complementary to Avamar, VMware and EMC NetWorker® backup and recovery software.

  • New features of EMC NetWorker software, including new ease-of-use features and support of additional languages, improving management capabilities for multi-national customers.

  • A new version of the award-winning EMC RecoverPointTM software for Continuous Remote Replication (CRR) and local Continuous Data Protection (CDP). The latest version of RecoverPoint software includes support for Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which improves automation and management of backups and restores for applications like Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server. In addition, EMC has integrated RecoverPoint and EMC Replication Manager software to centralize management of RecoverPoint local CDP protection in a Microsoft Windows environment.

    Charles King, Principal Analyst at Pund-IT, Inc. said, "Customers today are generating volumes of data that quickly overwhelm traditional backup architectures. There's simply not enough time for them to safely protect that information. EMC has been at the forefront of providing customers the tools and technologies necessary to redefine their essential backup, restore and archiving processes. Whether it's through the performance advantages of disk-based backup versus tape or innovative continuous data protection and de-duplication capabilities, EMC continues to successfully innovate and deliver leading solutions that address this major customer pain point."
