First generation deduplication systems focused on saving storage. Nexsan and FalconStor are redefining what you expect from a deduplication solution by delivering an ultra-efficient system that saves more than just capacity. DeDupe SG is faster to save time on backup and restore, greener to save energy between backups, simpler to save management resources and more dense to save space. Introducing DeDupe SG, the only highly efficient deduplication solution. By uniquely delivering "SG" - Speed with Green - DeDupe SG edges out the competition in performance while offering significant energy savings during idle times.
DeDupe SG™ is a complete, turn-key solution with all the necessary software and hardware leveraging Nexsan’s highly efficient storage combined with FalconStor’s high performance deduplication software engine (File-interface Deduplication System - FDS). DeDupe SG represents the next generation in data deduplication by reducing capacity costs while greatly improving operational efficiency.
DeDupe SG delivers performance that is 20% to 100% faster than competitive vendors by combining the latest high speed CPU processing technology with Nexsan’s high speed RAID subsystem. Not only is it faster, DeDupe SG is smarter by first writing and storing backups on its high speed disk cache (deduping at a later time or concurrently) so that backup tasks are completed in a fraction of the time.
DeDupe SG flexes its strength as the only highly efficient deduplication storage system. DeDupe SG doesn't just deliver speed, it delivers green. The typical backup window is 2-8 hours a day, yet all other dedupe solutions spin disks at full speed for the remaining 16-22 hours. By leveraging the green efficiencies inherent to Nexsan storage components and energy saving AutoMAID™ technology, DeDupe SG users not only get better performance during their backups, they save energy and reduce costs every hour the system is not in use - 65% savings when compared to other dedupe solutions and 95% when compared to normal disk storage.
There is a lot more hiding under the hood of DeDupe SG. For a comprehensive view of the product, download the DeDupe SG product brochure. Also, consider a 3rd party analyst perspective by downloading the ESG brief on DeDupe SG.
DeDupe SG is a complete solution and includes all necessary software and storage systems, preconfigured and ready to use.
DeDupe SG can write and store backups on its high speed disk cache and then dedupe the data at a later time. By first writing backups to a fast disk cache, backup tasks are completed in a fraction of the time.
DeDupe SG has its own independent, high performance RAID subsystem that can scale up to 8GB cache and up to 8 RAID engines. With RAID tasks off-loaded to the subsystem, CPU processing power can be solely dedicated to deduplication allowing users to backup and restore faster.
DeDupe SG supports multiple streams from multiple applications.
Nexsan DeDupe SG offers up to 65% more energy savings with AutoMAID. AutoMAID allowing DeDupe SG to gradually slow down and turn off its drives to conserve energy yet provide near-instantaneous access to data when needed.
DeDupe SG works at the block level – not the file level -providing granular data deduplication and can be used with any type of data backup.
DeDupe SG utilizes a standard NAS interface for easy connectivity and management. Simply put, if you can write it to NAS, you can dedupe it and store it.
DeDupe SG works seamlessly with popular backup or archive software.
The management system enables administration and monitoring of all deduplication processes and services for 100s of TBs of logical data capacity. DeDupe SG systems can be accessed across any LAN, MAN or WAN.
DeDupe SG management services can be installed on any Windows or UNIX platform providing easy online access to all DeDupe SG systems. From a central interface, administrators can manage all DeDupe SG functions including NAS configurations, system monitoring, replication and recovery services.
Users have the flexibility to exclude some data streams from the deduplication process. The DeDupe SG policy engine enables ‘set and forget’ deduplication management while speeding up backup operations.
DeDupe SG is very compact and available in many different sizes to accommodate the needs of any business:
- 4TB and 7TB usable capacity in a 5U configuration
- 12TB, 18TB and 26TB usable capacity in a 6U configuration
- 52TBs usable capacity in a 10U configuration
Data in the DeDupe SG is protected by Nexsan high speed RAID 6 guarding against dual drive failures. RAID sets are automatically rebuilt using included hot spare drives.
DeDupe SG can replicate deduped backups to another Nexsan DeDupe SG system located offsite for added data protection. DeDupe SG small office systems can also be installed at remote sites and their data replicated to a central DeDupe SG system.
The Nexsan DeDupe SG management system is simple to learn and use and offers a single-pane-of-glass view into your system. The Nexsan DeDupe SG management system enables administration and monitoring of all deduplication processes and services for 100s TBs of logical data capacity. Nexsan DeDupe SG systems can be accessed across any LAN, MAN or WAN. The user interface is simple, automated and intuitive minimizing the time it takes to perform administrative tasks.
The Nexsan DeDupe management system consists of the Nexsan DeDupe Management services that can be installed on any Windows or UNIX platform providing easy online access to all Nexsan DeDupe SG systems including remote systems. From a central interface, administrators can manage all Nexsan DeDupe SG functions including Nexsan DeDupe SG NAS configurations, system monitoring, replication, deduplication and recovery services.
Nexsan's evolutionary AutoMAID (Automatic Massive Array of Idle Disks) energy saving technology transparently places disk drives into an idle state to vastly reduce power and cooling costs. AutoMAID delivers the cost-effecdtive benefits of MAID 2.0 without the limitations of slow access times and special host software.
AutoMAID is granular to an individual drive or RAID set and offers multiple levels of energy savings. AutoMAID is user selectable enabling users to determine the right level of response time performance to energy savings. AutoMAID is the first MAID 2.0 architecture that supports VTL, full file format D2D and standard high performance RAID implementations.
