• Cloud Data Management

    • Superior cloud data management with Dell Technologies

    • As organizations continue to increase their reliance on cloud infrastructure, streamlining and optimizing cloud data management is a top priority for IT teams large and small. Managing backups, restores, disaster recovery, archiving and migration for data in a hybrid cloud environment can easily overwhelm IT teams that lack superior cloud data management capabilities. Dell reduces the cost and complexity of cloud data management with a comprehensive portfolio of hardware, software, solutions and services for managing and protecting data in the cloud.

      PowerProtect appliances provide midsize and enterprise organizations with data backup, recovery, and replication.

    • Top cloud data management challenges

    • Managing cloud data effectively and cost efficiently requires IT teams to address several significant obstacles.
      Storage optimization. As data volumes continue to grow exponentially, minimizing cloud backup storage volumes and simplifying long-term retention is essential for containing costs and simplifying cloud data management.
      Managing compliance. Evolving regulatory frameworks continue to cause challenges for organizations in many industry verticals. Superior cloud data management requires tools that can simplify compliance in the use and retention of data while reducing the administrative burden of demonstrating compliance on IT teams.
      Simplifying management of complex environments. Managing data that resides in public, private and hybrid clouds as well as on-premises servers can easily consume a great deal of IT staff resources. To manage cloud data efficiently, IT teams need easy-to-use tools that can automate processes and streamline tasks involved in cloud data management.
      Containing costs. Ultimately, any cloud data management solution must enable IT teams to respond to financial pressures by doing more with less, while also helping to reduce costs by minimizing storage footprints and accelerating backups, restores, disaster recovery and other cloud data management tasks. 

    • Dell solutions for cloud data management

    • A global leader in data protection solutions for businesses of all sizes, Dell provides cloud data management technology that helps customers achieve greater operational efficiency, resiliency and scalability throughout their entire cloud journey.

      Dell enterprise backup software, hardware and solutions provide easy-to-use cloud data management that enables organizations to:

      • Eliminate tape backups and reduce TCO through hybrid cloud backup. Dell technology enables organizations to easily leverage cloud environments to improve data protection and to reduce the cost and complexity of data backups, restores, disaster recovery, archiving and migration.
      • Simplify disaster recovery. Cloud Disaster Recovery technology enables organizations to copy backed-up VMs from on-premises environments to the public cloud, and to easily orchestrate DR testing, failover and failback of cloud workloads in a disaster scenario.
      • Manage long-term retention. Cloud Tier natively tiers deduplicated data directly onto cloud object storage for long-term retention. Advanced deduplication technology enables organizations to drastically reduce their protection storage footprints.
      • Protect cloud data with in-cloud backup. Dell delivers efficient in-cloud backup and replication to simplify protection of data and applications that are born in the cloud or that have been moved there. Dell breaks down cloud silos to discover, orchestrate and automate data protection.
      • Protect virtual cloud environments. Dell enables VMware Cloud on AWS customers to move production workloads to the public cloud with confidence. By providing a single solution that can protect hybrid cloud workloads and perform VMware recovery, Dell simplifies administration and lowers TCO.
