Dell has unveiled a new HDD-based backup device for small and medium businesses called the PowerVault DL2100. The device can be fitted with up to four 500GB HDDs in RAID 5 configuration. Dell offers the DL2100 in value and performance versions and claims the systems are up to 50% cheaper than tape systems to operate.

 

Both versions are powered by Symantec Backup Exec software and use Intel Xeon E5520 CPUs with a single CPU in value systems and two of them in performance systems. Value systems get 6GB of RAM and performance versions get 24GB. Pricing starts at $8,600 for value systems.
