Dell EMC Avamar is one of the data protection offerings from Dell EMC with NetWorker being another well-known system (see the separate NetWorker Product Brief). Avamar supports a range of source data, both on-premises and in the cloud. The Avamar solution is offered in two forms: as physical appliance with Dell EMC hardware and as a virtual appliance, both of which integrate with Dell EMC Data Domain. (Note: Existing customers can still use the original scalable Avamar Data Store hardware solution, however Dell EMC is focusing customers on the integrated with Data Domain going forward.)
Backing up both local and remote systems including servers, NAS, laptops, and desktops, Avamar uses client-side agents or NDMP with Avamar Accelerators in the case of NAS to control the backup of data. These can apply deduplication technology at the source to greatly reduce the actual data to be transferred and stored. All data is encrypted in flight for security.
