Dell Software today announced Dell DL1000, a backup appliance optimized for SMBs and managed service providers, and Dell DR2000v, a software-based virtual deduplication appliance optimized for remote office and branch office (ROBO) settings.
The starting price of DL1000 is $4,300 for 2TB of capacity, $6,000 for 3TB of capacity, and $8,300 for 3TB of capacity, plus two licensed Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.
Dell said the starting price for DR2000v is $4,200 for 1TB of capacity, $7,500 for 2TB, and $13,500 for 4TB.
Paul Davis, director of product management, data protection, Dell Software, said: “Regardless of the size of your organization or the nature of your backup needs, we encourage customers to compare Dell’s solutions to those of competing providers.”
The company also said the latest release of the company’s AppAssure data protection software solution features new upgrades, including the addition of cloud access management and archive-to-cloud capabilities, as well as expanded virtual machine support.
DL1000 provides fast and reliable backup and recovery capabilities.
A solution built on a Dell PowerEdge R220 server with AppAssure already installed, the DL1000 provides near-continuous data protection by taking snapshots as often as every 60 minutes utilizing AppAssure’s changed data tracking and de-duplication that backs up and moves only data that has changed to minimize networking and storage requirements.
Additionally, the DL1000 features a cloud connector that gives customers an easy way to use a public cloud as the target for AppAssure archives. Supported public clouds include Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, and OpenStack-based platforms.
The DL1000 comes with either 2 or 3 terabytes (TB) of usable capacity, and the 3TB version also can be ordered with two licensed Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.
DR2000v runs inside a virtual machine on a hypervisor server and works in tandem with any physical Dell DR appliance, including the DR4000, DR4100 and DR6000.
With the DR2000v, customers can back up their remote and branch offices, and replicate that data to a central office, enabling edge-to-core backup and disaster recovery without adding to the organization’s overall hardware footprint.
