Dell Data Protection for VMware at Dell Technologies World 2018

Dell Technologies World 2018, with over 14,000 attendees, was a resounding success in showcasing Dell Technologies’ leadership in helping organizations transform into the modern data center.  Modernizing data protection, specifically data protection for VMware environments, is an essential element of that transformation.

Architected from the ground up for the software-defined data center, Dell data protection solutions provide automation for all aspects of VMware data protection, comprehensive application coverage, and native VMware integration.  They deliver high performance and low cost to protect with industry-leading deduplication and bandwidth usage. And, they enable the extension of VMware data protection to the Cloud for each phase of your journey to the cloud – long-term retention to the cloud, disaster recovery in the cloud and VMware Cloud workloads running on AWS.

Dell’s VMware data protection capabilities were highlighted extensively at Dell Technologies World.

There were two Dell and VMware joint break-out sessions presented by Will Pien from VMware and Charles Sevin from Dell that provided information on the latest innovations from VMware with the recent launch of vSphere 6.7 and the latest innovations from Dell data protection – including data protection for VMware Cloud on AWS and hypervisor direct backup and recovery for mission-critical workloads, along with tips and tricks, for protecting VMware environments.   There was a lot of interest for these sessions with both completely full.

There were also a number of RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines sessions with Udi Zisser from Dell, for which there was a lot of interest. These sessions demonstrated how Dell helps organizations achieve efficient disaster recovery, operational recovery, and data migration for their VMware environments.  Dell RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines provides continuous data protection and enables any point in time recovery for a diversified storage environment both within and across data centers.  Click here to review the RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines session slides.
