• Backup Systems

    • Solve data protection challenges with Dell backup systems

    • Data protection has never been more difficult than it is today. The exponential growth of business data combined with evolving threats, stricter regulations, tighter SLAs and constrained budgets makes the task of protecting business data far more complex with each passing year. To improve data protection while simplifying management and reducing costs, Dell Technologies offers backup systems that provide comprehensive backup software and storage solutions for powerful data backup, recovery and archiving.

    • Data Replication and Recovery with Data Protection Suite

      Data Protection Suite is a comprehensive data backup and recovery solution for organizations of all types and sizes.

      Data Replication and Recovery with Data Protection Suite
    • Designing backup systems for complex environments

    • When selecting and configuring backup systems, IT organizations must find solutions that can address a number of obstacles.

      The volume of data that must be backed up continues to grow at exponential rates, thanks to the rise of Big Data, the Internet of Things and other data-intensive technologies and applications. There are also more users, devices and applications to protect than ever before – solutions must cover everything from laptop backups to continuous replication and long-term cloud retention. And control of data is more democratized, making it harder to centrally manage data backups.

      Massive distribution of data across physical, virtual and cloud environments requires backup systems that can function effectively in hybrid and multicloud environments. Regulatory frameworks are constantly evolving, adding additional requirements for managing and demonstrating compliance.

      IT organizations also face enormous pressure to reduce costs while maintaining agility and enabling shorter business cycles, requiring backup systems that offer shorter backup windows and minimal impact on network performance.

      Many organizations have legacy backup systems that use multiple point solutions, creating data silos and integration issues while also increasing the odds that data may be lost or corrupted when backup settings are misconfigured.

      To protect data from loss, corruption, theft and attack, today’s backup systems must significantly streamline management, minimize complexity, simplify compliance and increase the efficiency of all aspects of data backup and protection. That’s where Dell data protection solutions can help.

Dell data protection software enables fast backups and recovery for mission-critical applications. Dell simplifies the backup process, making it easier to access best-in-class replication, backup and archive solutions customized for your needs. This industry-leading software enables you to:

      • Perform deduplication backup, backup to disk, back-up to tape and snapshot-based backup.
      • Get comprehensive backup monitoring, analysis and reporting.
      • Back up data and applications within the public cloud and manage secure long-term retention of backups to the cloud.

      Industry-leading appliances
      Dell provides a wide range of data protection and backup appliances including protection storage, integrated appliances and software-defined solutions that can run in the cloud.

      • PowerProtect DP series appliances, formerly Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) are a converged solution with a single appliance that offers complete backup, recovery, replication, restore, deduplication and instant access, plus cloud accessibility with disaster recovery and long-term retention to the cloud. PowerProtect DP series appliances enable fast and easy deployment with a low cost-to-protect.
      • PowerProtect DD series appliances are industry-leading, scalable, reliable and cloud-enabled backup appliance, allowing you to protect your data wherever it lives in the most efficient way possible. DD series backup appliances reduce the amount of disk storage required and enable complete backups in less time with faster and more reliable restores.
      • PowerProtect DD Virtual Edition is a software-defined solution that can be configured and deployed in minutes and provides flexible capacity that can scale easily, enabling you to deploy capacity in multiple instances on standard hardware, converged or in the cloud.

      Data protection solutions
      Additional data protection and backup solutions from Dell include:

      • PowerProtect Cyber Recovery, a powerful defense against cyberattacks that features easy-to-deploy management software that automates workflows end-to-end, identifies suspicious activity, protects critical data and performs recovery when needed.
      • Data Protection for VMware that provides easy integration with VMware, along with automated and comprehensive coverage for the largest application ecosystem, on-premises and in the cloud.
      • Cloud data protection and backup solutions that make it easy to back up servers to cloud storage and ensure data is secure in the cloud while supporting digital transformation to the cloud with cloud disaster recovery, long-term retention and in-cloud backup.

    • Future-Proof backup systems provide guaranteed satisfaction

    • As technology evolves at an ever-increasing pace, IT organizations are often reluctant to invest in backup systems that could be ineffective or inadequate within a year or two. The Dell Future-Proof Program provides peace of mind with guaranteed satisfaction and investment protection for future changes in technology.

      The program provides a three-year satisfaction guarantee along with the ability to trade in existing or competitive systems for credit toward Dell backup systems. IT organizations also enjoy predictable support guidance, all-inclusive software, flexible consumption models, data protection deduplication guarantees, and more.

    • Calculating your cost-to-protect with backup systems

    • IT organizations everywhere are under increasing pressure to contain the cost of backup systems while improving performance and managing shrinking backup windows. Dell backup systems support these objectives by reducing the cost-to-protect – the expense involved in protecting data on a monthly basis.

      Dell Technologies offers a simple cost-to-protect (CTP) calculator that can help you determine your projected savings with Dell backup systems. Projections are based on gigabytes stored, cost of your data protection solution, the months supported by purchase and other criteria.
