In addition, RecoverPoint 4.0 is now more powerful. It offers increased scale, flexibility and capacity to protect even more mission-critical applications. The new version is capable of protecting 7X more data, delivers a 4X increase in the number of protected volumes to over 8000 volumes per cluster, and offers expanded asynchronous throughput by over 60% to 400 MB/second.More Accessible to the Midrange This year, RecoverPoint will surpass 100-million run hours, protecting over 800 Petabytes of mission-critical information for EMC customers. With RecoverPoint 4.0, EMC is offering a new software-only option (called vRPA) for EMC VNX® storage arrays. This software-only option enables VNX customers to deploy RecoverPoint functionality on existing infrastructure, thereby simplifying deployment and maximizing their existing infrastructure, saving VNX customers up-to 60% on their replication investment. In addition, EMC is now offering a new VPLEX frame-based licensing model for VNX—saving customers up-to 50% on their VPLEX investment. With strong adoption during its three years on the market, customers trust VPLEX to achieve continuous availability of their mission-critical application environments. With the new licensing model, EMC is building upon and extending that continuous availability to a broader audience.
