    • The power of intelligent data management with Dell Technologies

    • The unstoppable growth of business data today means IT organizations need much more than routine backup, archiving and disaster recovery tools – they need intelligent data management systems that can drastically reduce the cost, complexity and administrative burden of protecting business-critical information.

      Dell Technologies provides intelligent data management hardware, software and solutions that can help organizations of all sizes to simplify data management, reduce storage costs and be prepared to protect data now and in the future as the data landscape evolves.

      PowerProtect appliances provide midsize and enterprise organizations with data backup, recovery and replication.

    • Conquering the difficulty of intelligent data management

    • When searching for intelligent data management technology, organizations need solutions that can overcome the many challenges of backup, data recovery, archiving, migration and compliance.

      From the expense of data storage to the price of bandwidth, staff resources and data management tools, the cost of managing data can easily spiral out of control. Intelligent data management solutions must enable IT teams to cut costs even as data volumes and complexity continue to grow.

      Inadequate tools
      Many IT organizations have inherited a variety of limited point solutions that provide only a fraction of the functionality required for intelligent data management. Trying to integrate these fragmented tools is almost impossible, and the risk of data loss is consequently higher.

      Data is everywhere
      Data protection is no longer simply about managing data on-premises – data may now be distributed globally in public, private and hybrid clouds. Intelligent data management solutions must not only make it easy to protect data no matter where it resides, but also give IT administrators and business decision-makers a unified view of data across environments.

      From PCI DSS to HIPAA and GDPR, governmental regulations concerning the use and storage of business data continue to add cost and complexity to data protection. Intelligent data management technology must make it easier to both comply with regulation and respond to legal and compliance inquiries.

      Competitive businesses simply can’t afford to have data and applications offline for backup, disaster recovery or archiving purposes. Intelligent data systems must minimize the impact on IT environments while providing even greater protection of business-critical information.
