Dell Software Expands Line of Backup Appliances

Dell Software has added two new backup appliances and made enhancements to its AppAssure backup, replication and disaster recovery software.

The new solutions include the Dell DL1000, an AppAssure-powered purpose-built backup appliance optimized for use by small- and medium-sized businesses, as well as managed service providers, and the Dell DR2000v, a software-based virtual deduplication appliance optimized for use in remote office and branch office (ROBO) settings.

In addition, the latest release of the company’s flagship AppAssure data protection software solution features a series of upgrades, including the addition of cloud access management and archive-to-cloud capabilities, as well as expanded virtual machine support. 

Designed specifically for smaller digital environments, the DL1000 is an integrated backup appliance that provides fast and reliable backup and recovery capabilities. Combining the reliability of Dell’s PowerEdge servers with the power of its AppAssure data protection software, the DL1000 is a turnkey solution for small businesses that is easily deployed and works seamlessly across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

Expanding Dell’s DR series of backup and deduplication appliances, the DR2000v is a virtual appliance designed specifically for ROBO settings. The 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 then replicate that data to a central office, thus enabling edge-to-core backup and disaster recovery without adding to the organization’s overall hardware footprint.

And finally, the new release of Dell Sofware’s all-in-one backup, replication and recovery software, AppAssure 5.4.2 includes enhancements that broaden platform support while improving cloud and archive functionality.
