DASH Copies: All tiered copies /MediaAgent
(MA) are now dedupe enabled to deliver speed,
reduce loads and unleash the full array of
“open” targets to drive copies across your tiers,
including dedupe direct to cloud.
DASH Full: Dedupe optimized synthetic
backup – reducing processing time from 20 hrs
to 20 minutes.

DASH Copy – Copy Incremental Blocks
Description
AuxCopy just got a lot smarter. Deduped copies
can now be created faster while minimizing
transfer and processing by using the new
Dedupe Accelerated Streaming Hash (DASH)
method.
Benefits
Resiliency: Bandwidth throttle, job based
confirmation, robust network options,
HTTP/S security, restart-ability, multistreaming , and reporting
Low Impact: No rehydration, fast
asynchronous copy movement of just the
changed blocks to the new copy (DDB)

Performance: On fast networks, read,
compare and move (no rehashing-LAN
mode) between any MA-OS, or switch to
cache mode for WAN-mode (minimizing
network lookups)
Full Copy Mgmt Options: Independent
copy retention, selective rules, data
verification, job aging flags,

Auto-Discovery Rules
Description
Automatically add new VMs to backup
policies based on pre-defined rules.
Catch-all policy protects VMs that do not
qualify for any protection policy
Benefits
 Minimal Administrative Effort: Configure and
forget policy automatically protects new VMs,
freeing admins from the daily time consuming
burden of finding and manually adding new VMs.
 Customized SLA: Apply distinct protection
policies to VMs depending on their importance (or
agreed SLAs)
 Enables workload distribution for faster
protection operations: Data Store Affinity
ensures backup workload is equally distributed
across all data stores while preventing a single
data store from being overloaded.
 Variety of Rules available: Including Data Store
affinity, Cluster affinity, ESX affinity, Resource
Pool affinity, OS affinity, etc.
 Manual Discovery Override: Option to manually
add VMs for greater control for those critical,
must watch VMs.
