Dell Data Protection Achieves AWS Advanced Technology Partner Status

Dell Data Protection has been named an Advanced Technology Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). AWS Technology Partners provide software solutions that are hosted on, or integrated with, the AWS platform.

As an Advanced Technology Partner in the APN, Dell’s integration with AWS creates a powerful cloud backup and recovery solution so customers can deploy and scale the right-sized cloud data protection strategy. Dell Data Protection helps customers protect workloads on AWS to enable greater operational efficiency, performance and scalability throughout the entire cloud journey.

Dell offers a complete portfolio of cloud solutions and services for protecting our customers’ data as they embark upon their digital transformations to the cloud including:

  • Cloud backup
  • Cloud disaster recovery
  • Cloud tiering and long-term retention
  • VMware Cloud on AWS data protection
  • Superior Deduplication: Brings together industry-leading deduplication (average 55:1 deduplication rate) for data residing both on premise and in the cloud, Dell Data Protection boosts performance and throughput while reducing the consumption of object storage required by up to 71 percent when doing a backup – all sent encrypted to Amazon S3.
  • Increased Efficiency: A single protection instance that can support up to 6 PB of data in Amazon S3. Additional instances can easily be deployed to increase overall scale and flexibility. For additional efficiency, Dell can protect up to 2,000 clients and 1,000 concurrent sessions with a single protection server.
  • Lowest TCO: Customers can lower their monthly in-cloud data protection costs up to 68 percent when compared to other leading competitors.*

Oath now protects a massive AWS environment, including over 40,000 instances of Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS, and over 70 petabytes of data stored on Amazon S3, with Dell.

Customers like Oath turn to Dell and AWS to enhance its speed, scale, flexibility, availability, and resiliency while gaining powerful enterprise data protection for its cloud workloads.
