Data Recovery FAQs

Data recovery is the process of restoring data from backup after the original data has been lost, corrupted, deleted or otherwise made unavailable.

Disaster recovery is the process of restoring data lost, destroyed or corrupted during a natural disaster, equipment failure or cyberattack. Recovery typically involves restoring data from a backup located in an off-premises location that was unaffected by the disaster.

Data recovery typically involves the restoration of specific data. Disaster recovery usually involves restoring an entire data system after an outage, a cyberattack or natural disaster.

VMware data recovery is the task of restoring data from backups made of virtual machines running VMware software.

Data replication is the practice of storing copies of data on multiple drives or in separate geographic locations to ensure that an accurate copy of the data will be available despite outages, natural disasters, corruption, loss, theft and other threats to data integrity.

Dell Technologies supports backup to disk, backup to tape, backup to cloud, deduplication backup and snapshot-based backup.
