The Dell EMC Avamar backup and restore system is offered in two forms: as an integrated system with Dell EMC qualified hardware and pre-installed software or as a Virtual Machine image for installation as a virtual appliance. 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.
The client side agents or accelerators can apply the Avamar deduplication technology to greatly reduce the actual data to be transferred and stored to disk. Backups of the deduplicated data can be exported to tape (in deduplicated form) using Dell EMC NetBackup. The Dell EMC Avamar software is also integrated with Dell EMC Data Domain with selectivity to choose client side deduplication or Dell EMC Boost technology for inline deduplication.
Dell EMC Avamar support backing up remote or local servers, laptops, Network Attached Storage systems, and Virtual Machines. Backing up systems in remote sites is a pervasive problem in IT and requires the technology to control the backup, transfer the information, and provide restore functions from a central site. Dell EMC Avamar provides these capabilities and minimizes the amount of data to be transferred by providing deduplication at the client. Integration with Dell EMC Data Domain for optimized in-line deduplication backups and with Dell EMC Networker for export of deduplicated data to tape allows more flexibility for Dell EMC Avamar usage.
