• SMB Backup

    • Reduce SMB backup costs with Dell

    • Small- to mid-size businesses (SMBs) face unique challenges when it comes to protecting growing volumes of data, but SMB backup systems from Dell can help to simplify the task of backup, recovery, data replication, disaster recovery and archiving while also significantly reducing costs.

      Like their larger counterparts, SMBs invest significantly in technology to run their business. And while they may not generate as much business data as the enterprise, their data is just as mission-critical and must be protected from loss, corruption, attack and theft.

      Yet, in a digital economy that is constantly evolving, these organizations also face tremendous business and financial pressures and need backup systems that can both reduce the complexity and cost (both dollars and staff time) of managing data protection.

      To facilitate this goal, Dell offers SMB backup technology that overcomes the obstacles of SMB data protection.

      Leverage scalable, high-speed, and cloud-enabled data protection storage for backup, archive and disaster recovery.

    • Obstacles to effective SMB backup

    • When designing and deploying backup solutions, SMBs face many of the same challenges as larger organizations.

      The volume of data 

      From data-intensive applications to ever-larger data files and the increasing use of video, SMBs are virtually swimming in data that is increasing exponentially. And as SMBs grow, there are constantly more users and devices to protect, along with a broader spectrum of applications.

      Complex hybrid environments 

      SMBs are increasingly taking advantage of cloud services and cloud infrastructure to improve IT performance while reducing the cost of managing and storing data. SMB backup technology must effectively protect physical, virtual, hybrid and Multicloud environments.

      Compliance requirements 

      While compliance can be a significant burden for every organization, SMBs have fewer resources to use to monitor, manage and demonstrate compliance with a wide variety of regulatory frameworks. Superior SMB backup technology must drastically simplify compliance management and minimize the staff time required to supervise it.

      Legacy investments 

      As their IT environments evolve, SMBs inevitably collect a variety of limited SMB backup solutions that cannot be easily integrated or globally managed. The result is often a fragmented approach to SMB backup that results in data silos, frustration and, when tools are misconfigured, data loss and corruption.
