Dell EMC’s PowerProtect DD Series Appliances are used for backup, compliance and archiving/long-term retention use cases. The systems are the next generation of the Data Domain portfolio of systems acquired by EMC in 2009; they were re-branded in September 2019 to fit in with Dell EMC’s overarching data protection portfolio branding.

Under the Data Domain brand, PowerProtect DD established the market for backup-to-disk systems. The result is a range of models and broad-spread deployments, including within remote offices, mid-sized organizations and large enterprises.
Key functionality facilitated by PowerProtect DD is deduplication of data inline during transfer to a disk storage target that is connected to the PowerProtect DD controller. Dell EMC publishes deduplication rates up to 65x; results depend greatly on the data being deduplicated.

PowerProtect DD provides a network-attached storage (NAS) access. Additionally, PowerProtect DD can function as a Virtual Tape Library (VTL).

PowerProtect DD Series is offered as appliances, paired systems for global deduplication, and as archiving systems. The portfolio includes a software-defined PowerProtect DD Virtual Edition (DDVE), an entry-level DD3300 appliance, a midrange DD6900 appliance, and two high-end offerings – the DD9400 and DD9900. These models provide a range of performance and capacity characteristics as well as Cloud Tier connectivity for long-term retention. As of the August 2020 PowerProtect DD OS 7.3 launch, DDVEcan be deployed in the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace.
