SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- Data Domain, a leading provider of Enterprise Protection Storage systems for disk backup and network-based disaster recovery, today announced that eWEEK Labs has chosen Data Domain's DD460g gateway solution as one of its Top Five Storage Developments of the Year. The DD460g Gateway transforms third party Fiber Channel attached disk arrays into cost-effective, network-efficient protection storage by extending the benefits of Data Domain's patented deduplication technology, Global Compression™, to enterprises that want to leverage their existing disk storage investments.

Victor Loh, eWEEK Labs technical analyst, said, "With the creation of the DD460g Gateway, Data Domain's deduplication technology, which is used to massively reduce backup data set size, can now be easily applied in enterprise environments that wish to leverage their existing disk capacity for data protection.
