    • Dell EMC overcomes challenges to back up servers to cloud storage

    • Dell EMC comprehensive, 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. 

      High-bandwidth utilization
      Traditional solutions often require significant WAN resources to backup servers to cloud storage. Dell EMC technology reduces WAN utilization due to superior deduplication.

      Compliance requirements
      Compliance becomes more challenging when data is moved to the cloud and organizations lose control over domain and location. Dell EMC 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 EMC simplifies management of backup operations with a single, global solution and centralized monitoring, analytics and reporting.

    • How Dell EMC reduces the cost to back up servers to cloud storage

    • Dell EMC helps to significantly reduce the cost of backing up physical servers, VMs and cloud data to secondary storage in the cloud.

      • Advanced deduplication helps to drastically reduce storage footprints and associated costs. 
      • Faster backups significantly reduce WAN bandwidth utilization and associated costs.
      • Easy-to-use interfaces and a single, global solution with centralized monitoring, analytics and reporting help to slash the staff time and cost required to manage backups to the cloud.

    • FAQs on backup of servers to cloud storage

    • Why does deduplication let me back up servers to cloud storage more cost efficiently?
