De winnaars werden bekend gemaakt bij de SVC Awards Gala Ceremonie op 1 december in Londen, VK. De SVC Awards zijn een erkenning voor producten, projecten en dienstverlening - en ook voor bedrijven en teams - die op een uitstekende manier in de cloud, virtualisering en opslagsectoren opereren. De SVC Awards vormen ook een erkenning van de prestaties van eindgebruikers, kanaalpartners en verkopers. Het ExaGrid EX40000E-apparaat is een schaalbare, kosteneffectieve disk-gebaseerde back-up met data deduplicatie-oplossing; een revolutie in de manier waarop organisaties data opslaan en beschermen. De back-up opslagapparaten van ExaGrid kunnen data van meer dan 25 toonaangevende back-up software-applicaties dedupliceren en opslaan. Back-up opslagapparaten van ExaGrid zijn volledig ontworpen voor back-up opslag, om zo te voldoen aan de huidige vereisten op het gebied van back-up opslag. De apparaten zijn geoptimaliseerd voor superieure back-up- en herstelprestaties. "Wij zijn vereerd dat wij deze prestigieuze Product of the Year onderscheiding in de categorie Backup and Recovery/Archive van SVC voor 2016 in ontvangst mogen nemen," zei Bill Andrews, CEO van ExaGrid. "Wij zijn van mening dat dit de positie vertegenwoordigt van ExaGrid als enige verkoper van back-up opslag met een ingebouwde oplossing met datadepublicatie, waarbij rekening wordt gehouden met de uitdagingen voor prestaties van deduplicatie voor back-up, herstel en VM-boot prestaties. De unieke landing zone en scale-out back-up opslag van ExaGrid is drie maal sneller voor opname en meer dan tien maal sneller voor herstellen en VM boots dan de dichtstbijzijnde concurrent. Daarnaast is ExaGrid de enige oplossing die zorgt voor een vast back-up venster bij datagroei. Met ExaGrid heeft IT de snelste back-ups, hersteloperaties en VM-boots; een vast back-upvenster; en het vermogen om hun systemen eenvoudig te schalen, en dus kopen ze gewoon wat ze nodig hebben, wanneer ze het nodig hebben." ExaGrid is een strategische alliantie-partner van Veeam Software en Veaam is ook door SVC verkozen tot Product of the Year in de categorie Cloud Backup and Recovery/Archive. "Wij zijn blij dat we ons in zulk goed gezelschap bevinden. ExaGrid is een schoolvoorbeeld van strategisch partnerschap - het bedrijf, haar mensen, en vooral haar technologie en product", zei Andy Vandeveld, Vice President of Global Strategic Alliances bij Veeam. "Het is geen verrassing dat ExaGrid is benoemd tot Product of the Year in deze categorie. ExaGrid heeft gezorgd voor een uitgebreide integratie tussen haar apparaat en Veeam Availability-oplossingen. ExaGrid zorgt voor data-depublicatie om op te slaan op diskopslag en behoudt het waardevoorstel van Veeam voor VM-boots en hersteloperaties in seconden tot minuten, waarbij het 'Always On'-datacentrum snel en consistent beschikbaar en responsief blijft. Wij feliciteren ExaGrid met deze indrukwekkende beloning!" "De nominaties voor de SVC Awards 2016 waren van een zeer hoge kwaliteit, en er was ook een sterke toename in het aantal uitgebrachte stemmen. De SVC Awards erkennen de gebruikers, fabrikanten en leveranciers die actief zijn in de sectoren opslag, virtualisering en cloud, en er wordt voor gestemd door de lezers van ons brede aanbod aan papieren en online publicaties, "zei Jason Holloway, Director of IT Publishing bij Angel Business Communications, uitgevers van de waaier aan titels bij Digitalisation World. "Alle finalisten hebben het goed gedaan door de hoogwaardige shortlist te bereiken, maar ExaGrid was een duidelijke winnaar in deze categorie." ExaGrid's EX40000E is het grootste product in het aanbod van het bedrijf, en schaalt van een volledige 40TB back-up naar een volledige 1PB back-up door 25 EX40000E's te combineren in een scale-out GRID. De opnamesnelheid van een volledig GRID is 200TB/uur, en dat is 3 keer zo snel als de opnameprestatie van de EMC Data Domain 9800 met DD Boost. De unieke landingzone van ExaGrid zorgt niet alleen voor de snelste back-ups, maar ook voor de snelste hersteloperaties en VM-boots, omdat ExaGrid de meeste recente back-up in volledige, niet-gededupliceerde vorm behoudt. ExaGrid is de enige verkoper die rekenwerk combineert met capaciteit, in plaats van alleen maar disk-shelves toevoegen. Met deze schaalbare aanpak kan het prestatiebereik worden vergroot bij een groei van de capaciteit, waardoor een back-upvenster met vaste omvang wordt bereikt wanneer de data groeit. Over ExaGrid Organisaties komen bij ons omdat wij het enige bedrijf zijn dat data-deduplicatie zo heeft geïmplementeerd dat alle problemen die verbonden zijn aan backup-opslag worden verholpen.

On Monday, at the 2017 Dell EMC World conference in Las Vegas, unveiled new efforts in servers, enterprise storage, and data protection to help customers modernize their data center and IT initiatives. Many of the new products and services are focused on Dell EMC's goal of lowering the barrier of entry to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), which is the concept of leveraging computer and storage as a singular entity. In the past few years, numerous vendors have begun offering HCI tools, which promises some of the resource allocation and lifecycle management benefits seen in the cloud, but on premise. Advances in HCI have led to lower costs and greater efficiency of the infrastructure involved. At the Dell EMC World conference, the company announced new offerings in four distinct areas: Flash storage has been around for some time, but it's only now starting to take hold of the enterprise storage market. At the conference Dell EMC announced the VMAX 950F, a new offering in its VMAX series that boasts 68% faster speeds than its next competitor. The company also announced the XtremIO X2 array, geared toward VDI and development/test workloads. Dell EMC's Unity line also got an upgrade, with four new models offering up to 500TB of effective storage capacity. For block workloads, Dell EMC introduced the SC5020 hybrid storage option that can bring capacity up to 2PB, a press release said. The firm's next generation of its Isilon scale-out NAS systems also made an appearance, promising some 18 times the throughput of its close competitors. In a press release, Enterprise Strategy Group senior analyst Mark Peters said that scale-out and flash solutions are "capable of delivering both the high performance and rich data services needed for today's demanding applications - are critical elements for any enterprise that wants to achieve IT transformation." Dell EMC also introduced the 14th generation of its PowerEdge server line offering improved, integrated security, a scalable architecture, and intelligent automation through the new OpenManage Enterprise console. According to a Dell EMC press release, these new servers provide better application performance and response time, and flexible storage solutions. "Dell continues to grow its server business as a combined company with EMC. Its Dell EMC PowerEdge portfolio addresses a broad set of customer needs from traditional business use cases to cloud-native applications while offering a strong foundation to support future IT and business needs," IDC senior vice president of infrastructure and data center, Matt Eastwood, said in the release. In addition to Dell EMC's 14th generation PowerEdge servers being designed to work with software-defined-storage (SDS) environments, the company announced a new host of other SDS solutions at the conference. The Dell EMC ScaleIO for large-scale operations can help speed storage deployments. The latest version of Dell EMC's Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) offers IoT data streaming, too, and new Dell EMC Ready Nodes bring pre-tested and pre-configured SDS and server solutions to customers, the release said. "While software-defined everything is a critical piece of IT transformation, the reality is that we're still early with regard to the ability of enterprises to consume software-only offerings," Jeff Boudreau, the president of storage for Dell EMC, said in a press release. "Offering software-defined storage offerings for on-premises and the cloud, in a variety of deployment models including ready nodes, allows us to meet customers where they are today and take them where they need to be as they transform their IT and their businesses." Data protection was also a key theme at the conference. Dell EMC debuted a new Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) to boost protection on-prem. A company press release noted that the IDPA comes in four models, and protects both physical and virtual workloads, with cloud-tiering available as well. Cloud data protection was also touched on, with the launch of Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE) 3.1 and a new Data Domain feature called Data Domain Cloud Disaster Recovery, which offers data protection in both Data Domain and AWS S3, the release said. Dell EMC's new S5100-ON series switches, also announced at the conference, are the industry's first 25GbE open networking switches, a press release noted. They're also designed to work with the 14th generation PowerEdge servers, which offer native 25GbE support. Dell EMC also unveiled a new S4100-ON series of switches, optimized for use in fiber channel deployments. Finally, the energy efficient and cost-effective new N1100-ON series, designed to pair with Aerohive's HiveManager NG, will be targeted for environments like college campuses. "By disaggregating networking system software, and by decoupling networking software from hardware platforms, companies can free themselves from the rigid, and proprietary environments of yesterday to embrace software-defined principles and unlock innovation at any scale," Tom Burns, senior vice president of networking at Dell EMC said in a press release. Additional solutions were offered in the form of NFV Advisory Services to help companies understand the requirements and investments needed in network functions virtualization, and an IoT Technology Advisory Service—which brings consulting for the proper use of IoT data in an enterprise, a release said. A host of new flexible consumption models from Dell Financial Services (DFS) also made their debut at Dell EMC World. DFS Flex on Demand provides pay-as-you-go storage consumption, while the DFS Cloud Flex for HCI provides a similar model for specific appliances, such as the VxRail Appliances and the company's XC series. Company leaders also mentioned Dell EMC's PC as a Service and VDI Complete solutions, aiming to make end-to-end deployments easier to manage through a single vendor. Easier contract management was also promised through the firm's Transformational License Agreement (TLA), allowing customers to swap titles and exchange software, while adding additional flexibility to the contract process.

Dell EMC is announcing new data backup and protection solutions that enable customers to ensure data is secure, backed up and protected against disasters and outages. The new Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA), a purpose-built, pre-integrated and turnkey appliance that converges protection storage, software, search and analytics in a single appliance, provides data protection across a wide ecosystem of applications and platforms, and offers native cloud-tiering for long-term retention. In addition, Dell EMC also rolling out new capabilities to its cloud data protection portfolio to enable customers to simply and effectively protect and back up their data anywhere, anytime. Efficient data protection is not easy to accomplish with many of today's solutions, where there is often complexity in the setup or the need to manage multiple point solutions for different applications, platforms or data silos. Often, there are multiple products to manage (e.g., backup software, backup servers, search servers and multiple vendors), which can result in lengthy and time-consuming deployments, siloed data protection environments and complex and expensive management. Dell EMC IDPA is a pre-integrated appliance designed to help organizations meet these data protection challenges head on. IDPA also provides integration with key business critical applications and platforms for improved performance and greater levels of data owner control, including: MongoDB, Hadoop and MySQL. Further, IDPA offers the simplicity of a single user interface for typical daily operations. Through this UI, users can schedule and manage protection jobs, set up policies for long-term retention in cloud and comply with the protection SLAs. IDPA will be available in four different models (DP5300, DP5800, DP8300, and DP8800) to fit the needs of midsize and enterprise customers, starting at 34 terabytes usable capacity at entry level and scaling up to 1 petabyte usable capacity at the high end. Services, such as remote monitoring and auto-dispatch of parts from globally distributed service depots, provide customers with additional confidence and peace of mind that their data and investment are protected and supported by enterprise-tested and proven serviceability from Dell EMC. Dell EMC offers a comprehensive portfolio of multi-cloud data protection solutions for organizations at any point in their cloud journey. Currently, more than 150 PB of data in the cloud is managed by Dell EMC Data Protection technology, which is 2x the closest competitor. The enhancements to our portfolio that further broaden our cloud data protection capabilities adding two new uses cases for Protection Storage in the cloud and Disaster Recovery to the cloud. With the release of Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE) 3.1, organizations can gain the performance, efficiency, and reliability of Data Domain in the cloud. DD VE enables back up of both traditional and emerging workloads in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure and efficient replication to, from and within the cloud. Additionally, the Data Protection Suite can perform monitoring and reporting of these backups in the cloud. The combination of Data Domain and the Data Protection Suite can now provide low-cost disaster recovery to the cloud by enabling organizations to extend protection of their on-premises environments to AWS S3. Data is sent securely and efficiently, requiring minimal compute cycles and footprint within AWS. In the event of a disaster, VM images can be restored and run from within AWS. Since neither Data Protection Suite nor Data Domain are required in the cloud, compute cycles are only required in the event of a restore, enabling users to capture additional cost savings. Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance is orderable now and will be generally available in the summer of 2017. New Dell EMC Cloud Capabilities are available with the latest versions of Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE 3.1) and Data Protection Suite. PRESIDIO, Raphael Meyerowitz, AVP Data Center Services "Dell EMC IDPA's holistic approach to data protection will enable our customers to greatly simplify and lower the overall cost of their data protection environment.  With faster deployment, a modern, simple, integrated environment, cloud-tiering for long-term retention, leading performance, and four configurations with easy scaling to fit the needs of any organization, our customers can have the peace of mind that IDPA will be able to meet their data protection needs today and tomorrow." Jason Buffington, principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group "Both production and protection architectures are evolving a rapid pace, with terms like 'convergence' and 'integration' seemingly everywhere. But Dell EMC's evolution and announcements epitomize where the industry as a whole must go: integrating best of breed components when you can, for better time-to-value, while ensuring flexibility and scale-without-limits for organizations who already have a forward-capable strategy. In the meantime, 'hybrid' is the word of the day, with today being a reminder of the breadth and flexibility of the Dell EMC data protection product lines with continued innovation for the protection of modern data centers, while adding DRaaS capabilities and IaaS protection."

The first annual Dell EMC World kicked off on October 19, 2016 in Austin, TX, marking the first major event of the now-joined tech powerhouses. Company leaders took the stage throughout the conference to discuss new efforts and the direction of the company in the future. A host of announcements were made and sessions hosted on software, hardware, and business strategy. Here are five major themes explored at the event. SEE: Dell EMC updates, launches new systems, software as it integrates legacy products (ZDNet) One of the biggest announcements at the conference was that the Dell EMC PowerEdge servers would be integrated into the company's VxRail Appliances and VxRack System 1000. This allows Dell EMC to more fully address storage and compute, leading to new use cases and options for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) deployments. "Dell EMC owning both the compute and storage portions of the hyper-converged stack is a game-changer for the HCI portfolio," Terri McClure, senior analyst of the Enterprise Strategy Group, said in a press release. "It allows the company to deliver more value choices for customers via investment protection, faster innovation, supply chain advantages and savings it can pass on." According to a press release, the VxRail Appliance integration will address use cases for big data, remote offices, and graphics-intensive workloads. The VxRack System 1000, on the other hand, will speed up applications, offer better configuration, and improve flash economics. Dell EMC's cloud focus was split between two components—updates to the Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) 3.0 modern object-storage platform and an updated, software-defined version of Dell EMC Data Domain. ECS will now run on PowerEdge servers, and a new D-Series hardware offers higher density than other options for ECS. According to a press release, there will also be an ECS Dedicated Cloud Service, which will be hosted by Virtustream. Data Domain, Dell EMC's cloud-enable data protection offering, will now be available as a service on PowerEdge servers. This news came in tandem with a host of other data protection updates, including Dell EMC's protection of Microsoft Azure applications. At the 2016 Dell EMC World conference, the company announced their new Analytic Insights Module (AIM), which "delivers all of the software, hardware and services necessary to stand up an environment for both big data analytics and cloud native application development in days rather than weeks," a press release said. A self-service experience allows data scientists to set up their own workspace, and AIM also offers highly defined permissions. It also has an integrated, scalable data lake and will be available later this year. Flash storage continues to be at the top of mind for enterprise IT, and Dell EMC addressed this trend with the introduction of Isilon All-Flash scale-out NAS system. It is designed for greater density and to better handle unstructured data, making it a potential tool for modern big data deployments. "Isilon All-Flash is specifically designed to address the need for extreme NAS performance, but also to provide the multi-protocol access, enterprise-grade data protection, security and ease of management capabilities that organizations expect from the industry's #1 scale-out NAS solution," Phil Bullinger, senior vice president of Isilon at Dell EMC, said in a press release. Obviously, the combination of two corporations as large as Dell and EMC means that there is going to be some overlap in terms of product offers. Dell EMC leaders took to the stage at Dell EMC World to explain the company's security portfolio and focus moving forward. For data protection, Dell Data Protection and Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise will handle authentication and file-based data encryption, while MozyEnterprise and MozyPro will deal with cloud data protection. RSA SecurID Access will be the core offering for identity assurance, RSA NetWitness Endpoint will deal with threat detection and response, and unified endpoint management will be primarily associated with VMware AirWatch.


Transmitting or storing subsegments is disclosed. A data stream or a data block is received and broken into a plurality of segments. For at least one segment, the segment is broken into a plurality of subsegments. A previously stored or transmitted segment similar to the at least one segment is identified. A fingerprint is computed for at least one subsegment. And, using the fingerprint for the at least one subsegment, determining whether the at least one subsegment is identical to a subsegment of the previously stored or transmitted segment without directly comparing the content of the at least one subsegment with the content of the subsegment of the previously stored or transmitted segment.
