Tandberg Data this month began shipping network-attached, disk-based backup appliances in the company’s new AccuVault product family. All of the Windows-based appliances include AccuGuard Enterprise software and source-based data deduplication software.
AccuVault backup appliances are available in three configurations: desktop units that include RDX QuikStor removable disks, and two rackmount configurations.
The desktop AccuVault 4510-DPS includes 1TB of fixed disk capacity and a 1TB RDX removable disk cartridge. Pricing starts at $2,999.
The 1U AccuVault 4514-DPS and 1U AccuVault 4518-DPS rack-mount appliances include 4TB (2.5TB usable) or 8TB (5.2TB usable) of fixed disk capacity, respectively, and are designed to protect 5 to 40 servers or workstations. Common features include RAID-5, hot-swappable drives, dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and connections for RDX units.
The AccuVault 4514-DPS starts at $8,499, while the AccuVault 4518-DPS appliance starts at $15,999.
In addition to Windows, the AccuVault appliances are compatible with VMware and Hyper-V.
AccuGuard Enterprise software provides backup and file-level recovery, centralized management, and agents for SQL and Exchange. Tandberg’s data deduplication implementation is global (across all clients) and source-based (deduplicaton occurs before data is sent over the network).
