A Stake in the Heart of Tapes
Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT, was at the EMC announcement. He agreed that EMC isn't merely hyping its product line. Data Domain, he said, offers significant performance improvements that essentially double throughput and capacity.
"It's interesting from a technological standpoint because while the performance of most deduplication solutions scale according to improvements in hard-drive technology, Data Domain actually scales according to CPU performance," King said.
"Data Domain has become the fastest-selling product in the EMC platform," King said. Now with Archiver, he added, EMC is making a statement.
"It will take them a while to get there, but the pitch that EMC is making is that Data Domain is the stake in the heart of tape archiving," King said. "For companies that need ready access to archive data, Data Domain is going to be the best way to deliver disk-based performance, but also very high levels of cost effectiveness and systems efficiency."

You didn't really describe how the EMC technology works! Instead you focused on biz strategies for EMC. Who cares except for CEOs? Give us the facts. We may want to use this technology.
