EMC Avamar shameless claims

Post by jgremillion »

I just saw this on an EMC blog. Avamar just released a new version of their dedup/backup product the other day which now includes support for vSphere API (old news to us Veeam 4.0 users) and now they claim that they have the most comprehensive VMware support. .......

I think it's funny. .....

Here is an excerpt:
<cut>
In addition, Avamar 5.0 offers integration with vSphere 4.0 environments, and leverages some of the native capabilities of vSphere and the vSphere APIs to provide a faster, better, deduplicated backup. Avamar 5.0 can now do image level backups (back up the virtual machine as a complete entitiy) and restores. Avamar can also take advantage of vSphere to do block level incremental backups of an ESX host--with the added capabilities of being able to do a file level restore of data (even if it has been backed up with block level incremental or image level backups).

So this is a big one. To the best of my knowledge, this makes Avamar 5.0 the first major backup product to market with significant vSphere 4.0 integration. Several parties have been asking for this (yes, W. Curtis Preston, I am thinking of you) and with this release, EMC has delivered.

Yep, they've missed train a little. Can you give a link to the blog? I'd like to comment. :)

Wow, why everyone is so scared of Veeam? esXpress also won't approve any blog comments to the BS posts about us... Vizioncore ninja edits all mentionings of Veeam on their forums...

We never do anything like this, we are not afraid to talk about our competition...
May be it is because we strongly believe we are much better, and they realize that too? :)

He let your post stay but I see his response was a little ... odd.
