Proven Again! Simple Cloud Protection Solutions with Google Cloud VMware Engine

Dell Technologies makes protecting virtualized applications simple with comprehensive backup, recovery and storage solutions for Google Cloud. On May 14th, Google announced Google Cloud VMware Engine, which enables users to seamlessly migrate VMware workloads to Google Cloud while lowering costs and freeing IT resources for innovation. Running VMware workloads natively in a dedicated, private cloud means you can use the same tools, processes and policies you used on-premises, making transitions faster and simpler.

Dell EMC Data Protection solutions for Google Cloud VMware Engine are easy to deploy and offer our proven enterprise-grade backbone underneath, with features such as source-based data deduplication. Our engineering teams jointly validated this solution with our entire portfolio, including cloud-enabled software management capabilities across Data Protection Suite and PowerProtect Data Manager. Being able to deliver scalable backup and recovery of VMs in Google Cloud provides seamless integration with on-premises data protection and protection of vSphere workloads for increased resiliency.

With Dell EMC PowerProtect DD Virtual Edition (DDVE) target backup storage in Google Cloud, VMware users get trusted protection storage and the simplicity, flexibility and efficiency of a software-defined solution. PowerProtect DDVE is simple to configure and deploy and can be up and running within minutes. Data owners can start small and grow as needed while using a single management interface for multiple instances. Underneath the Dell EMC solution, deduplication technology means the same TCO returns as on-prem configurations but with lower cost and cloud footprint.

PowerProtect DDVE delivers great agility and scale, up to 96TB per instance and for many virtual workloads. An Electronic Licensing Management System enables flexible deployment and the ability to purchase in 1TB increments. The reductions in cost and storage footprint make this an economically attractive investment, especially as there are no upfront capital investments
