Dell EMC has launched Dell EMC IDPA DP4400, its Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) — for a starting price of $80,000 – targeting mid-size organizations to transform IT.
“This solution offers benefits such as data protection in a single appliance, protection storage and server, protection software, IDPA System Manager, search, reporting and analytics as well as advanced application integration, at the lowest cost,” said Ripu Bajwa, director and general manager – Data Protection Solutions, India, Dell EMC.
Enterprise CIOs and IT decision makers can select Dell EMC’s IDPA DP4400 for backup, de-duplication, replication and recovery — ensuring better performance at lower cost. IDPA DP4400 also offers built-in cloud readiness features with disaster recovery and long-term data retention to the cloud.
“The IDPA DP4400 offers the right level of modern features and capabilities for mid-size data centers at the lowest cost to protect,” Beth Phalen, president, Data Protection, Dell EMC, said.
Dell EMC said the IDPA DP4400 offers better performance for mid-size organizations and remote office-branch office (ROBO) environments. The solution is designed to provide organizations the lowest cost for protection and is guaranteed under the Dell EMC Future-Proof Loyalty program.
The IDPA DP4400 is a converged data protection appliance in a dense 2U platform powered by Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th generation servers.
IDPA DP4400 is ideal for deployment and management in mid-sized organizations and ROBO locations.
A 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.
With native Cloud Tier for long-term retention, the total protected usable capacity increases to 14.4 PB.
It shortens backup windows by up to 2x; backs up only de-duplicated data requiring up to 98 percent less bandwidth; and supports 7x more backup streams while delivering instant access and restore of virtual machines to help meet stringent SLAs and RPOs.
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.
The IDPA DP4400 costs up to 80 percent less to protect, said Dell EMC. With up to 2x faster backup windows, up to 20 percent more capacity in a 2U appliance, and an average rate of 55:1 deduplication — it offers the lowest cost to protect among competing products in its class.
“With the IDPA DP4400, Dell EMC is targeting a large swath of enterprises in that middle tier that want an all-in-one solution that is affordable, easy-to-use and has the modern data protection features they require to ensure their data is safe and their business can quickly recover in case disaster strikes,” Phil Goodwin, research director, Storage Systems and Software, IDC, said.
