Cutting edge technology

Introduction: It is said that a backup device ObjectEngine will be launched, based on FlashBlade to make a flash to flash to cloud (F2F2C) backup solution. So far, no backup manufacturer in China has introduced a similar flash-based backup solution.

The latest news saw that the rookie Pure Storage in the enterprise storage space is playing a "bad idea."

It is said that a backup device ObjectEngine will be launched, based on FlashBlade to make a flash to flash to cloud (F2F2C) backup solution. So far, no backup manufacturer in China has introduced a similar flash-based backup solution.

Although ObjectEngine is capable of realizing backups from flash to flash to cloud as Pure Storage says, it has some advancement. But in the face of the mature D2D (disk-disk) backup solution like Dell EMC Data Domain, ObjectEngine is still Alexander, and Data Domain also has products such as flash or all-flash configuration, and the low-end entry level is also covered. For the cloud, Data Domain Cloud Tier solves the data backup problem of the cloud infrastructure.

That is to say, Data Domain's rich products and software: low-end Data Domain dedicated backup devices, enterprise-class Data Domain dedicated backup devices, software-defined protected storage Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE) And the Data Domain family of software. In addition, a customized, pre-integrated, turnkey, dedicated device, Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) enters the Magic Quadrant for the 2017 Gartner Data Center Backup and Recovery Solution. In particular, the IDPA DP4400, designed for small and medium-sized businesses, has received much attention.

Data Domain dedicated backup device also includes DD3300, DThe five main series of D6300, DD6800, DD9300 and DD9800 meet the needs of different grades of enterprise and small and medium-sized users.

That is to say, only a rich product line, long-proven software and hardware systems, and back-to-feed with extensive application deployment practices can truly achieve a successful backup product. In addition, Commvault, Oracle, Veeam, and Veritas can now use ObjectEngine as a backup target, which is not difficult for any array vendor.

Pure Storage acquired the StorReduce deduplication technology, which is a must for enterprise storage enterprises in the enterprise storage industry. From this point of view, Pure Storage's flash-based backup device ObjectEngine is still a long way to go, and it is very good to target Data Domain, but it is more practical to be down-to-earth.
