One of the industry’s only integrated solution for faster disk-based backups and recoveries with optional deduplication that gets you up and running 5 times faster than configuring it on your own.

Up and running 5x faster

Configuring homegrown backup-to-disk solutions can be difficult, time consuming, prone to errors, and expensive. Dell has simplified the backup process by offering one of the industry’s first and only integrated hardware, software, and services solution powered by Symantec Backup Exec™ 2010 software. This integrated backup to disk appliance with target and source based deduplication is a cost-effective way to reduce total cost of ownership.

PowerVault™ DL Backup to Disk Appliance – Powered by Symantec comes factory installed with Backup Exec™ 2010 software, plus a unique wizarddriven setup and management utility. Integrated automated dynamic disk provisioning configures and sets up the disks for immediate use.

Set it up, configure storage, add more disks – it only takes a few clicks. PowerVault DL Appliance solutions are fully tested and validated, sure to work together, and you can deploy them fast.

In fact, we’ve timed it: You can deploy PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 and start executing your first backup in just 18 minutes. That’s 5 times faster than setting up and configuring the hardware and software pieces on your own.

Industry leaders Dell and Symantec co-developed this offering to get you up and running fast with a tested solution that offers easier management. It’s an ideal way for any IT department to achieve fast, reliable backups and restores. It’s disk-based backup simplified by Dell.

55% faster, more reliable disk-based backup and 49% faster restores than tape with up to 50% less cost.

Managing tapes can be complex and time consuming. Backups to tape often exceed their backup window, and tape-based backups can fail. Diskbased backup with the PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec is up to 55% faster than tape backups and restores are up to 49% faster.

Better than VTL

Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs) are ‘point products’ that can help fix backup and recovery bottlenecks in the short run. But they’re also separate “boxes” that create silos of information and add management complexity. Virtual tapes have to be created, provisioned, and managed, and VTL products lack alerting and reporting within the backup solution. The PowerVault DL Appliance is a native, disk-to-disk solution that is designed to eliminate the need for manual setup and management. It automatically and dynamically provisions disk, invisibly to the user, and gives you proactive monitoring, alerts, and reporting.

Integrated tape support

The PowerVault DL Appliance is available with the Dell PowerVault TL2000, TL4000, or ML6000 tape library integrated into the full solution. Take advantage of backup-to-disk for quick availability then transfer to tape from the same management console for offsite disaster recovery. The PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 is the first of Dell’s TierDisk family of products, designed to provide costoptimized solutions for secondary storage environments for data protection and data management.

Remote backup, management, monitoring, and maintenance

Your data center administrators can use the PowerVault DL Appliance to backup data from remote offices to the data center. Administrators can set up backup tasks and policies and do system monitoring and maintenance from a central location. This makes the PowerVault DL Appliance the ideal backup solution for remote offices that don’t have IT experts on-site. You can also use the PowerVault DL Appliance’s remote backup and management features to create a disaster recovery solution, when you transfer data from your data center to another PowerVault DL Appliance at a secondary location.

Granular recovery technology for speedy restores

With Symantec Backup Exec’s patent-pending Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) for critical Microsoft® applications, including file, Exchange, SharePoint (MOSS), and Active Directory, your administrator can recover granular objects from a single-pass backup by simply browsing and selecting it. GRT lets you recover specific items such as public folders and individual mailboxes — even individual e-mails, attachments, and calendar items — all without a time-consuming full restore.

Protection for VMware virtual machines with low cost and complexity

Managing backups on virtual machines can be difficult and expensive due to licensing requirements. The PowerVault DL Appliance – Powered by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 incorporates award-winning technology for virtual machine protection. The Agent for VMware® Virtual Infrastructure includes protection for an unlimited number of guests on an individual ESX host. In addition, Backup Exec 2010 leverages VMware VStorage APIs for off-host backup of VMs.

Protection for desktops and laptops

Backup Exec’s 2010 Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) lets users automatically protect multiple desktops and laptops via a network share. DLO lets users choose continuous, scheduled, or manual backups and provides an intuitive interface that lets users access their most up-to-date data whether they’re in the office or on the road.
