Background and Market Landscape
Within a fixed backup window, throughput performance ultimately dictates a backup deduplication storage system’s useable capacity. Regardless of how much raw storage a disk-based backup system may provide, its actual usable capacity correlates to the amount of data the system can ingest within the available backup window. With its latest announcement, EMC has again proven its ability to extend the performance characteristics of its backup systems and deliver a balance of performance and capacity that is better suited to solve customer problems than other products in the market today.
EMC’s new products and expansion of support for additional application environments create new opportunities for users to holistically address the full range of their data protection initiatives. Enterprise environments typically have a variety of system and workload types to protect, which often lead to multiple backup approaches. EMC’s unmatched scope of integrated disk-based backup systems eliminates silos of redundant processes as well as associated cost and management complexities.

Industry Analyst Quote
"If there was ever a question that inline data deduplication storage systems could scale to meet the needs of the largest enterprises, the new Data Domain Global Deduplication Array should conclusively put those doubts to rest. In fact, the entire high end of the EMC Data Domain line just massively scaled in both performance and capacity. In terms of overall backup throughput and breadth of enterprise market applications, it seems EMC has clearly pulled away from the pack."
