BakBone introduces new licensing model for data domain systems

BakBone Software a leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection, has introduced a simplified licensing model for Data Domains field and authorised channel partners.

The new licensing model makes it simple for customers to buy and configure the solutions, as well as cost effective and easy for Data Domain joint partners to quote BakBone software for any Data Domain device or configuration.  The two solutions are synergistic, with BakBone providing data protection software and Data Domain providing an efficient deduplication storage system. Customers can select a VTL option from either BakBone or Data Domain for a combined solution that is certified and field-proven at numerous customer sites.

Data Domains deduplication storage systems address a broad range of storage application workloads, including disk backup, archiving and network-efficient disaster recovery. By pairing BakBones NetVault: Backup data protection solution with Data Domain deduplication storage systems, organisations can efficiently address the full range of their data protection needs.

Weve worked with Data Domain successfully for many years and share many joint customers with a broad range of environments and configurations. BakBone is completely complementary to Data Domain technology, making us a secure partner to work with on engagements, said Jeff Drescher, vice president of Marketing, BakBone. The next logical step was to create a single licensing model that is easy to use and cost effective for the Data Domain sales personnel and our joint partners.

Data Domain is the leading provider of deduplication storage systems, and over 2500 companies worldwide have purchased Data Domain systems to reduce storage costs and simplify data management, said Rod Mathews, senior director, Business Development, Data Domain.  The new BakBone licensing model makes it easy to quote and configure combined solutions to deliver all of the associated benefits to end users.

The combination of BakBones award-winning data protection solution, NetVault: Backup and Data Domain advanced deduplication storage systems gives customers high-performance, cost-effective data protection that provides concurrent, scalable backup operations; seamless integration; and lower total cost of ownership.
