While protecting business data has become a critical priority for businesses of every size, the task of SMB data protection (protection for small- to medium-sized businesses) has become increasingly complex and costly.
Data volumes are doubling at an ever-faster rate and data is now stored in a wider variety of locations – from on-premises servers and data centers to virtualized environments and the cloud. Regulatory compliance is more complicated than ever, and performance SLAs are more stringent. And as the challenges of SMB data protection continue to mount, the pressure for IT departments to reduce cost and to “do more with less” continues to grow.
Dell EMC provides market-leading enterprise and SMB data protection solutions that help to overcome all the challenges of protecting data while minimizing the administrative burden on IT teams as well as the cost of data protection.
SMB data protection technologies from Dell EMC secure and protect your data, no matter where it resides, with powerful solutions for backup, data archiving, data recovery and replication. With Dell EMC, you can simplify SMB data protection and data management, automate data services, and effectively protect your data from loss, corruption, attack and theft.
SMB Data Protection Storage
Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance, or IDPA, is a converged solution combining hardware and software in a single appliance to simplify deployment and management. A clean, intuitive interface delivers a comprehensive view of data protection infrastructure from a single dashboard, and provides administrators with tools for search, analytics, simplified management and cloud readiness.
Dell EMC Data Domain is a highly scalable, reliable and cloud-enabled backup appliance, with products that are suitable for both enterprise and SMB data protection. Data Domain enables organizations to scale up significantly and to reduce the amount of disk storage needed to retain and protect data. Data Domain also provides high throughput to complete more backups in less time, minimizing requirements for LAN and WAN bandwidth.

With SMB data protection and backup solutions from Dell EMC, organizations can easily solve the most complex challenges:
Exponential data growth. Dell EMC technologies feature massive scalability, enabling IT organizations to easily manage data volumes that are growing with no end in sight. Dell EMC Data Domain, for example, can scale up to manage petabytes of usable capacity in a single system.
Increasingly complex environments. With Dell EMC, managing complex enterprise environments with multiple platforms and applications is easy. Administrators can protect data across all environments – physical, virtual and cloud – with global management tools and centralized monitoring, analysis and reporting.
Cost and performance pressures. Dell EMC helps to significantly reduce the cost of managing SMB data protection. Advanced deduplication technology helps drastically reduce the footprint required for secondary storage, while fast backup speeds help to minimize LAN and WAN costs.
Fragmented SMB data protection solutions. With a single, comprehensive solution, Dell EMC provides global visibility across all data protection and backup operations.
Even though their need for innovative SMB data protection solutions is critical, many organizations are understandably hesitant about investing in new technology. SMB data protection requirements and technologies are constantly evolving, and organizations are concerned that their new technology may be inadequate within 6 to 12 months.
The Future-Proof Program is designed to help customers optimize their IT lifecycle through guarantees, offers, and assurances. Future-Proof includes offers such as a 3-year satisfaction guarantee – competitors offer only 30-day guarantees, and Never-worry data migrations – with Dell Technologies, it’s simple to move to next gen storage with seamless upgrades and built-in data migration tools and more.
Use our Dell EMC cost-to-protect (CTP) calculator to see how much you could save with Dell EMC SMB data protection technology. Knowing your CTP is critical to containing costs while ensuring performance and managing shrinking backup windows. Your CTP calculation is based on the cost of your SMB data protection solution, the gigabytes required for storage, the months supported by your purchase and other criteria.
