EMC Corporation has announced that users of EMC Avamar consistently report better backup for their VMware environments, citing metrics that positively impact operational efficiency and client service levels. 
EMC leads the industry in backup of VMware environments by fully using the latest VMware vSphere APIs to deliver fast and reliable virtual machine backup and recovery.
Avamar deduplication software and systems excel at backup of both virtual and physical environments.
This enables Avamar customers to make the transition to a highly virtualized environment faster and more smoothly than if they used any other backup method.
“Regardless of size, industry or location, Avamar users share common experiences and successes when it comes to the protection of their VMware environments,” says Rob Emsley, senior director of product marketing, EMC Backup Recovery Systems Division. 
“As virtualization continues to drive more efficiency and flexibility into IT environments, it also creates new and different challenges for backup and recovery of data and applications,” said the director. 
“Avamar users are not only able to meet these challenges head-on, but also deliver better backup and disaster recovery capabilities to their internal clients,” he said.
St. Charles Health System (SCHS) is Central Oregon’s largest employer, with multiple medical treatment delivery facilities and over 3,000 caregivers. 
Mike Crystal, enterprise architect for servers and storage, St. Charles Health System, said: “We anticipate yearly savings of over $ 130,000 from our Avamar system. Restores that were taking eight to 10 hours now take only one to two hours. But what’s really impacted our organization is the operational time savings. I can’t emphasize enough how much our IT operation has improved now that our team is not spending all day on backups.”    
TekLinks is a leading services provider of IP telephony, network security, data storage, backup, disaster recovery and hosting services to numerous businesses across the Gulf South states. 
Ed McLain, director of data center operations, TekLinks, said: 
“We needed a backup solution that would perform reliably in the cloud and effectively address VMware backup.”
