PoINT Storage Manager certified for EMC Data Domain by EMC
Siegen. PoINT Storage Manager version 5.1 with integrated support of EMC Data Domain as additional archive storage system has successfully completed the EMC certification process.
By supporting EMC Data Domain the manufacturer and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) PoINT Software & Systems GmbH has covered an additional, well-established storage system by its data and storage management software. The software connector integrated in PoINT Storage Manager is especially developed for EMC Data Domain and utilizes the special functions and advantages of EMC Data Domain. Users are able to consolidate archived data in so-called “Archive Volumes” (container files in standardized format) and thus can optimally use the compression and de-duplication functions of EMC Data Domain. The system performance can be increased further by parallel transfer of multiple archive volumes to EMC Data Domain at the same time. Furthermore multi-tenancy configurations and EMC Data Domain retention functionality (“RL-Governance”
”The implementation of PoINT Storage Manager is especially suited for customers already using EMC Data Domain e.g. for backup purposes“, explicates Thomas Thalmann responsible for Projects & Services at PoINT Software & Systems GmbH. “Archiving requirements are fulfilled and their primary storage is offloaded from inactive data by using already existing EMC Data Domain systems.”
The PoINT distribution partner Orchestra Service GmbH from Gilching, having the largest European-wide support team for EMC products, is glad about the certified solution. Manfred Rosendahl, Product Manager at Orchestra says: ”PoINT Storage Manager and EMC Data Domain is an ideal combination for file-based archiving and for automated transparent tiering of inactive data from existing primary storage systems.”
