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.
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.
