Data Domain today announced new storage systems that it claims will increase performance by 100 per cent.

The company, now owned by EMC, is improving its mid-range and entry level deduplication storage with three new products the DD630, DD610 and DD140 by powering them with its Stream Informed Segment Layout (SISL) used in its enterprise-level offerings.

SISL is designed as a scaling architecture, made to increase both throughput performance and capacity.

Henry Baltazar, storage analyst for the 451 Group, said in a statement: "Data Domain has already demonstrated there is a considerable appetite for deduplication across organisations of all sizes."

He added: "We are seeing deduplication increasingly being embraced by companies looking to implement tapeless disaster recovery at the edge by pulling in data from remote offices to a data centre core."

The DD630 offers data rates up to 1.1TB per hour and the DD610 675GB per hour of inline deduplicated storage throughput.

The company claims that these products, aimed at the mid-sized business, double throughput of previous models, cutting backup needs by 50 per cent and increasing raw storage capacity by 60 per cent.

The DD140 is an entry-level offering and comes with the company's replicator software for remote site protection.

All these products are available immediately.
