Using Dell deduplication and compression algorithm technology, a DR Series system can achieve data reduction levels ranging from 10:1 to 15:1. This reduction in data results in less incremental storage needs and a smaller backup footprint. By taking advantage of deduplication and compression features and removing redundant data, the system delivers:
The benefits of data deduplication can be extended across the enterprise—through the deduplicated replication functionality—to provide a complete backup solution for multi-site environments. The shorter Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and attainable Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) are also assured as critical backup data remains on disk and online longer. Capital and administrative costs are diminished at the same time as internal service level agreements (SLAs) are more easily met.
The system is available in many drive capacities to fit SMB, enterprise, and remote office environments. For details, see DR Series System Drive and System Capacities.
The DR Series system CLI provides the means for managing the status, data capacity, storage savings, and throughput of data containers.
This Dell DR Series system CLI documentation assumes that the DR Series system has been deployed in its network location, and it is ready to be accessed using the DR Series system CLI commands.
The internal system drive capacity and available physical capacities of the DR Series system vary, depending on your system type (DR4000, DR4100, etc.) and drives installed. For details, see the Dell DR Series System Release Notes and the Dell DR Series System Interoperability Guide.
