EMC Buys Legato - Opinion

EMC announced today their intention of buying Legato Corporation. The deal is valued at $1.3B, based upon yesterday’s closing price of $11.76 per share for EMC shares. It is expected to close before year-end 2003. We think this is a good deal for both sides.

DCT Content Director - Product Profile

The first Belgian company to create an innovative Content Addressed Storage (CAS) solution was acquired by EMC Corporation, and eventually became the heart of the EMC Centera product line, a storage appliance aimed at the “fixed content” archiving market. Several years later, yet another software company with Belgian development roots, DataCenterTechnologies (DCT), is making its way in the CAS market with its new Content Director offering.

EMC Centera File Systems - Technology Brief

Disk-based archiving answers many challenges in the enterprise, but this strong new trend also creates many new questions for end users. Specifically, because of their distinct architectural approaches. Taneja Group sees some confusion regarding the question of whether to deploy a traditional file system or an object storage (e.g. Content Addressed Storage, or CAS) approach in support of an enterprise archival initiative.

Taneja Group Avamar Product - Profile

The combination of continued data growth, shrinking backup windows and increasingly stringent recovery time objectives are pushing traditional tapecentric backup architectures to their breaking point. Staggering backup failure rates, reliability issues, and inability to hit backup windows have forced IT administrators to search for alternatives.

Seek and Chargeback: New EMC Centera Features - Opinion

On March 1st, 2005, EMC announced two new features for EMC Centera: application-independent metadata search capabilities (EMC Centera Seek) and corporate chargeback integration (EMC Centera Chargeback Reporter). Beyond serving as smart product line enhancements, Taneja Group believes both of these features provide strong indications that EMC intends to take Centera into new territory in the next 18 months.

NetApp Open Systems SnapVault

Data protection for remote offices has become a hot topic in the IT industry. New innovative technologies and approaches to data protection, like Wide Area Data Services (WDS) and next generation disk-based backup technologies, are challenging the need to do tape backup altogether in the remote office. Furthermore, the role and market position of traditional backup vendors, like Symantec/Veritas, EMC/Legato, CA and IBM, hang in the balance as the processes and approaches to data protection change in both the data center and the remote office.

EMC’s Next Generation Backup and Archival Strategy - Technology In Depth

With each passing year, we have watched enterprise backup and archive environments continue to rise in both architectural and management complexity. When we look under the covers, it seems companies no longer have a single data protection strategy, but rather multiple point strategies for various functional areas, locations, or processes. We believe this is a seriously big problem if left unaddressed by the industry. In our research, we have discovered that a good part of this condition results from the unintentional ad hoc cobbling together of point products required to address the increasingly diverse backup and archiving needs of an enterprise. Ultimately, when we look outside the data center to also include remote and branch offices, workgroups and departments, as well as multiple data centers, the challenge of federating these various data protection schema appears quite daunting.
