Data storage and archiving firm EMC has released the latest iteration of Avamar, which includes enterprise backup capabilities for desktop and laptop computers.
Businesses can leverage the same Avamar de-duplication technology that protects data centers and remote offices to backup the information stored on corporate desktops and laptops, said the Hopkinton, Mass.-based company.
EMC said that Avamar's virtualization capabilities, through support of VMware vSphere 4 and vCenter and vStorage integration, offer customers robust backup and restore options. The Avamar management console has been integrated with vCenter, providing a single point of management for all backup options.
EMC said it has increased Avamar backup capacity by more than 60 percent and added new de-duplicated export to tape functionality.
