Modern, 100% Software-defined StorSafe vs. Leading Backup-to-Disk Appliances

Faced with the ever-expanding amount of mission-critical, enterprises struggle to ensure everything can be protected within the backup window. It is universally understood that the weakest link in the chain is the tape library – it just can’t keep up. Compounding the problem is the fact that using tapes to send a copy of the backup data offsite for safety is expensive and cumbersome, and often results in unacceptable recovery times.

To solve the performance problem on-premises, backup to disk is the universal answer. StorSafe and Data Domain both provide a backup to disk target that is compatible with all the popular enterprise-class backup and restore applications, but the two products take vastly different approaches. StorSafe takes a modern, 100% software defined approach, so it uses standard compute servers and works with any vendor’s storage, while Data Domain delivers backup appliances and storage vendor lock-in pricing.
