The ultimate protection storage appliance
DD series enables organizations to protect, manage and recover data at scale across their diverse environments. DD series is the next generation of Dell EMC Data Domain appliances, that are now setting the bar for data protection from edge to core to cloud. DD series provides the ecosystem support, efficiency, powerful data protection and cloud-enabled capabilities that customers have come to expect and appreciate from Data Domain and takes it to the next level.
The DD Operating System (DDOS) is the intelligence that powers DD series. It provides the agility, security and reliability that enables DD series to deliver high-speed, scalable and industry-leading multi-cloud protection storage for backup, archive and disaster recovery. DDOS integrates seamlessly with existing infrastructures, enabling ease-of-use with leading backup and archiving applications, and offers superior performance in conjunction with Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager and Data Protection Suite. When purchasing a new DD series appliance you can now consume DDOS as a subscription providing flexibility for deployment while minimizing up front costs.
Fast, secure and efficient data protection
DD series minimizes the risk of data loss and leverages the value of protected data, while meeting ever more demanding SLAs and increasing ROI. DDOS drives DD series to deliver up to 38% faster backups and up to 45% faster restores at higher compression levels.** This improved level of compression efficiency typically increases the logical capacity by 30% per TB*.
DD series can now scale up to a physical capacity of 1.5PB in a single rack, thereby utilizing minimal floor space and lowering power and cooling by up to 41%.*** By employing denser disk drives, DD series has lowered the required rack space by up to 39%.
DD series provides up to an additional 3PB of cloud capacity for long-term retention, with Dell EMC Cloud Tier.
DD series supports high availability within the single rack. By doing so, DD series can further reduce the total cost of ownership by reducing downtime in the unlikely event of a hardware failure. DD series delivers high speed networking connectivity with support for 25GbE and 100GbE network adapters.
