EMC Avamar is a product offered by Dell for hardware and software data backup. The huge volumes of data stored in systems is making the process of backup and recovery a lot more challenging as it used to be. Avamar provides the best solution by offering client side global deduplication, storage of backups on disk, centralized backup administration and replication of backup data between sites.

  • EMC Avamar is capable of performing full daily backups which helps in executing a single-step recovery process.
  • Avamar deployments reduces redundant copies by using variable block deduplication which divides data into chunks and considers only the new bits of data.
  • The Avamar software runs on a core Linux distribution that doesn’t require regular patching as it is not dependent on traditional server operating systems.
