Dell DL4300 and DL1000 1TB backup appliances offer more

Dell Software has added two new offerings — Dell DL4300 and DL1000 1TB appliances — to DL series backup and recovery appliances, targeting SMBs.

Featuring Dell’s PowerEdge servers and AppAssure data protection software, the new appliances provide turnkey data protection solutions. Dell DL series backup and recovery appliances work across physical, virtual and cloud environments, enabling customers to protect critical data and applications regardless of location.

More than 70,000 customers – including more than 8,000 added in the last year – utilize Dell’s data protection solutions to add value to the business by minimizing downtime, safeguarding against data loss, and reducing costs and complexity.

The standard edition of Dell DL4300 offers up to 60TB of usable capacity, while the high-capacity offering provides up to 120TB of usable capacity.

Dell customers will have the freedom to license only the portion of the total appliance capacity that they need today, while maintaining the flexibility to license the unused capacity only when more storage when needed.

This apart, the standard capacity edition allows customers to expand capacity inside the enclosure without having to do expensive, forklift upgrades, while customers with larger deployments can go a step further and add additional storage resources by adding expansion shelves.

The standard offering features an 8-core processor and up to 128G of memory, while the high-capacity offering features a 10-core processer and up to 256G of memory.

DL4300 customers can view and manage standby virtual machines in a single interface, eliminating the need to access the hypervisor itself and minimizing the complexity. The standard version comes with two licensed Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines, while the high-capacity version comes with four.

The DL1000 provides continuous data protection by taking snapshots 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.

Brett Roscoe, general manager, data protection, Dell Software, said: “With the addition of the DL4300 and DL1000 1TB, Dell’s backup and recovery appliances offer customers a combination of choice, performance and value that no other vendor in the industry can match.”
