Dell this week announced two new backup and recovery appliances, the DL4300 and DL1000 1TB appliances.
The DL4300 Backup and Recovery Appliance, powered by AppAssure, is designed for protecting business-critical data and applications, and includes as much as 60TB of useable capacity. A high-density version of the appliance, provides as much as 120TB of usable capacity. Customers can license only portions of the appliance they need and then grow into the additional capacity.
The DL4300 is built on Gen13 PowerEdge servers, which feature 8 to 10-core processors and 128GB to 256GB of memory. Customers can create standby versions of their appliances, which let them recover in seconds. All standby virtual machines are managed from a single interface and the standard version comes with two licensed Hyper-V VMs, while the high-capacity version comes with four.
In addition, the DL4300 ships with Rapid Appliance Self Recovery (RASR) capability, which lets customers recover appliances if failure occurs. Users can either define a restore point for the appliance or recover the appliance back to its original factory image.
The Dell DL1000 1TB Backup and Recovery Appliance is designed for SMBs. It features AppAssure data protection software, and is available also in 2TB or 3TB offerings.
