Module 8: DD Boost

Introduction
Data Domain Boost (DD Boost) dramatically improves
backup speed & Data Domain system management.
In this module you learn more about DD Boost.
Objectives

Describe DD Boost

Describe replica awareness

Describe EMC2 NetWorker architecture

Describe how DD Boost works with EMC2 NetWorker

EMC Education Services

DD Boost Overview
DD Boost provides 4 benefits
1.

Eliminates CIFS/NFS overhead

2.

Your backup server is aware of a replication

Good for disaster recovery

You can manage replication from a backup server

Faster because you have all the data in cataloged in


your backup server

3.

Distributed segment processing (DSP)

4.

Interface groups

EMC Education Services

DD Boost Overview (Continued)

Provides standard/centralized management features


through backup software
All DD Boost features work the same way with these
industry standard backup software applications

EMC Networker

Symantec NetBackup (DD Boost plug-in required)

Symantec Backup Exec (DD Boost plug-in required)

Enables advanced load balancing & failover

Requires licenses on Data Domain System

Review

DD Boost moves part of deduplication to backup


server
Advantages of DD Boost are
1.

Replica awareness

2.

Minimizes network bandwidth use

3.

Configuration & replication management centralized

4.

Lowers CPU load

5.

Faster backups

You must have the OST plug-in to run DD Boost
