DL1000 | Small Business Backup

Reliable, efficient and affordable data protection for small businesses.

Purpose-built data protection appliance designed to bring backup, replication, and disaster recovery to smaller environments.

Ensure uninterrupted access to critical data with this appliance-based solution. The DL1000 provides fast backup and restores on virtual machines, physical servers and in the cloud to enable local, offsite or disaster recovery. Designed for rapid deployment, it’s built on a Dell PowerEdge server with a short, 15.5-inch depth, low power draw, quiet acoustics and fresh air cooling to make it ideal for small environments.

  • Perform block-level, system-level and email backups and recoveries with an intuitive interface powered by AppAssure.
  • Restore data in minutes, from a single file, message or data object, to a complete machine – and even to disparate hardware.
  • Protect data on your virtual machines, or use the most popular hypervisors (VMware® vSphere™, VMware ESX®/ESXi Microsoft® Hyper-V®, and Oracle VirtualBox) as virtual standby machines for complete disaster recovery coverage.
  • Do granular recovery with snapshots up to every hour.
  • Reduce storage requirements by as much as 80 percent with integrated storage management capabilities.

Live recovery

Restore operations almost instantly with a recovery time objective (RTO) of minutes.

Universal recovery

Restore at any level, from a single file, message or data object, to a complete machine, even to dissimilar hardware.

Cloud archive

Archive your static data to Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, Rackspace, or any cloud-based option on OpenStack.

Virtual standby

Continually send updates to a virtual machine that can be activated in case there’s an issue with the primary machine (optional, 3TB version only).

Incremental-forever snapshots

Snapshot data up to every 60 minutes for granular recovery point objectives (RPOs).

Change-block tracking

Track changes at the block level, backing up only the data that has changed to ensure optimal performance.

Integrated deduplication and file compression

Cut storage requirements by up to 80 percent.
