• VMware Backup

    • Protect data with VMware backup solutions

    • As organizations increasingly move workloads to VMware virtual machines (VMs), the need for effective VMware backup and VMware recovery solutions has grown significantly. Protecting VMs is difficult with existing backup technology, as most solutions were not designed for the software-defined data center (SDDC) or are too inflexible and expensive to scale easily as data volumes grow. And many backup technologies offer only limited automation, adding more complexity and inefficiency to the VMware backup process. 

      Dell provides VMware backup solutions that are optimized for virtual environments and provide simple, flexible and comprehensive data management and data protection for VMware workloads.
