    • Why choose Dell for cloud data protection?

    • Organizations of every size turn to solutions to effectively and cost-efficiently solve the challenges of cloud data protection. These challenges include:

      • Long data backups. One of the challenges of cloud data protection is the amount of time and WAN bandwidth it takes to back up data from on-premises storage to cloud locations. Long backup windows can have a negative impact on application performance and employee productivity, while high WAN bandwidth utilization can significantly increase the cost of data protection. Solutions help to significantly accelerate backups, accomplishing in just minutes what it otherwise would take hours to perform.
      • Complex data protection environments. Protecting data in the cloud today is more complex than ever, as data may be geographically dispersed over multiple data centers in public, private and hybrid cloud environments as well as on-premises locations. Solutions simplify cloud data protection with a single solution that can manage data no matter where it resides, with easy-to-use tools that drastically streamline tasks and reduce the administrative burden on IT teams.
      • Stringent compliance requirements. Organizations often find that cloud data protection presents a number of compliance challenges, as control of and access to data stores is necessarily more limited. Dell simplifies compliance with policy-driven backup management that makes it easier to manage and demonstrate compliance.
      • Increasing costs. As data volumes continue to grow exponentially, the cost of cloud data protection can spiral out of control as well. Solutions use advanced deduplication technology to minimize protection storage footprints and reduce costs. Streamlined management and faster backups also help to drive down the cost of cloud data protection.

    • Cloud data protection use cases

    • Cloud data protection solutions can provide value in a wide variety of use cases, including:

      • Backup to cloud. This form of cloud data protection is designed to back up on-premises data to public cloud object storage and may include short-term backups for operational recovery or long-term backups for compliance.
      • Long-term retention backup to cloud. In this use case, data from on-premises infrastructure is backed up using public cloud object storage to satisfy long-term retention compliance requirements.
      • Backup in cloud. This use case involves backing up workloads running in public cloud virtual machine instances to cloud storage.
      • Cloud Disaster Recovery. This use case involves leveraging cloud storage to keep data secure and safe from natural, man-made or nefarious threats. Cloud Disaster Recovery enables organizations to recover data and applications directly to the cloud in minutes, with seamless integration to on-premises data protection infrastructure.  

    • FAQs about cloud data protection

    • What is cloud data protection?
      Cloud data protection is a strategy for protecting data that resides in on-premises servers, in off-site data centers or in the cloud by backing it up to cloud storage. Cloud data protection is designed to protect data from loss, corruption, compromise and theft.

      What are the challenges of cloud data protection?
      Without the right solutions, cloud data protection may consume a lot of network bandwidth and be subject to latency. Consequently, costs can soar when large amounts of data need to be backed up to the cloud. Additionally, organizations may lose a certain amount of control over data when it is moved to the equipment and purview of a cloud service provider.

      What are the benefits of cloud data protection over on-premises solutions?
      The efficiencies of cloud data protection may enable organizations to improve data protection strategies without increasing the workload on IT staff. Cloud data protection may also help to reduce costs, to improve scalability and to allow organizations to manage data compliance more easily.

      Does Dell offer cloud data protection for databases?
      Yes. Dell provides leading software for Oracle backup and Microsoft SQL backup, along with backup solutions for IBM, SAP and other business-critical information systems.

      Does Dell offer cloud data protection for virtual environments?
      Yes. Dell makes it easy to move production workloads to the public cloud with solutions for VMware backup and recovery.
