Dell EMC launched its Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA), the Dell EMC IDPA DP4400, providing data protection to help mid-size organizations transform IT while combatting data sprawl and complexity. The IDPA DP4400 comes with capabilities for backup, deduplication, replication and recovery. IDPA DP4400 also offers built-in cloud readiness features with disaster recovery and long-term data retention to the cloud.
It is a converged data protection appliance in a dense 2U platform powered by Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th generation servers. Dell EMC offers customer-installable HTML5 user interface with the intention to make IDPA DP4400 ideal for deployment and management in mid-sized organizations and remote office-branch office (ROBO) locations. The single 24TB appliance can grow in place to 96TB with a license key and no additional hardware to purchase.
IDPA DP4400 can protect approximately 5PB of usable data capacity. And, with native Cloud Tier for long-term retention, the total protected usable capacity increases to 14.4 PB. It also includes support for modern applications such as MySQL and MongoDB, both physical and virtual, and support for multiple hypervisors (VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V).
As the company claims, it backs up only deduplicated data requiring up to 98 per cent less bandwidth, and supports 7 times more backup streams while delivering instant access and restore of virtual machines to help meet stringent SLAs and RPOs. The IDPA DP4400 comes with 5TB licenses each for Cloud Disaster Recovery and Cloud Tier as well as a Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines starter pack that provides five VMs and a one-year subscription.
