Spectra Logic has launched what it claims is the industry’s first integrated system for deduplication, remote site replication and automated migration to tape.
nTier Deduplication achieves increased deduplication efficiency by sharing deduplication catalogs among remote sites. Users no longer need to establish multiple policies across numerous sites or purchase separate software to move replicated deduplication data to a tape archive.
Nexsan Technologies, the provider of disk-based storage and FalconStor Software, the provider of data protection solutions, announced a strategic venture to deliver a joint solution, which has resulted in the delivery of an integrated deduplication product family for high-performance, power-efficient data storage.
EMC has reported a slight increase in revenue last quarter and provided an optimistic forecast for the second half of the year.
The announcement came as it completed the USD $2.1 billion acquisition of data deduplication specialist Data Domain.
EMC Corporation has finally overcome rival NetApp and succeeded with its bid to buy data deduplication leader Data Domain at a price of USD $2.1 billion.
The acceptance of the final offer comes after a six-week bidding war and will raise questions about whether EMC overpaid for Data Domain – and what NetApp will do now.
The bidding war for Data Domain stepped up this week after NetApp raised the stakes with rival EMC by making a new cash and stock offer of USD $1.9 billion.
This came two days after EMC’s offer of USD $30 per share in a deal worth about USD $1.8 billion – around 20 per cent over the original USD $1.5 billion offered last month by NetApp.
