The cloud holds tremendous potential to reduce the cost and complexity of data protection and data backup – but only when IT organizations can back up servers to cloud storage easily and cost-effectively.
Organizations of all sizes face a number of hurdles when trying to back up servers to cloud environments, from time-consuming backups and high WAN bandwidth utilization to the high cost of storage for data that hasn’t been adequately deduplicated.
Dell Technologies, a market-leading provider of data protection and backup technology, offers comprehensive solutions that enable superior data protection in the cloud and make it easy to back up servers to cloud environments.
Providing a combination of storage appliances, backup software and data protection solutions, Dell enables IT teams to:
Dell EMC data protection products comprise a wide range of cloud-enabled solutions that include data protection appliances, data protection and backup software and data protection solutions. Principal solutions that enable organizations to back up servers to cloud storage include:
Comprehensive Dell EMC, cloud-enabled technology easily overcomes the traditional hurdles that IT teams encounter when trying to back up servers to cloud environments.
Shrinking backup windows
Attempts to back up servers to cloud environments often run into trouble as backup windows shrink to meet objectives for application performance and availability.
Traditional solutions often require significant WAN resources to backup servers to cloud storage. Dell EMC technology reduces WAN utilization due to superior deduplication.
Compliance becomes more challenging when data is moved to the cloud and organizations lose control over domain and location. Dell provides policy-driven backup management that simplifies compliance and lets IT back up servers to cloud storage with confidence.
Complex, distributed environments
As enterprise IT environments become more complex, data protection and backup may involve data residing in hybrid, multi-cloud environments as well as on-premises servers and virtualized environments. Dell simplifies management of backup operations with a single, global solution and centralized monitoring, analytics and reporting.
Dell helps to significantly reduce the cost of backing up physical servers, VMs and cloud data to secondary storage in the cloud.
Why does deduplication let me back up servers to cloud storage more cost efficiently?
Deduplicating data before copying it to cloud storage helps to reduce your storage footprint and the associated monthly costs. Dell EMC advanced deduplication technology provides greater deduplication, significantly reducing the cost to backup servers to cloud environments.
Can I back up VM servers to cloud storage with Dell?
Yes. Dell EMC data protection technology provides automation, integration with VMware and comprehensive coverage for the largest application ecosystems on-premises and in the cloud.
Can I back up data already in the cloud with Dell?
Yes. Dell EMC in-cloud backup technology lets you discover and automate backup and recovery in the cloud, reducing the amount of data protected by taking advantage of Dell EMC deduplication technology.
