3 Ways EMC Makes it Easier for You to Sell Data Protection Everywhere

Customers cannot afford to protect data the same way they used to. And, while they may recognize that the data protection landscape is evolving, many do not realize that all of their data must be safeguarded … No matter where it lives. Or, if they do understand, then they’re not sure how to actually move forward with the protection transformation while keeping costs down.

Help your customers change how they protect their data

Enable your customers to build a solid foundation for their modern data centers with new EMC data protection solutions and resources, including:

  • Cost-effective new offerings
  • Enhancements to our existing portfolio
  • Simple sales tools

… All of which can help you deliver—and win more opportunities with—the Data Protection Everywhere message.

1.  Unparalleled Efficiency for Tiering Protection Storage to the Cloud

While many customers are currently moving backup data to the cloud because of the perceived cost benefits, the public cloud contains a number of hidden costs that can add up quickly.

Users are charged for not only every GB sent, but also every GB retrieved. So, it is critical to minimize the amount of data being stored in and sent to/from the cloud.

Data Domain provides the most cost-effective long-term retention in the cloud through industry leading deduplication efficiency, and enables an average of 10 – 30x reduction in storage requirements

To help customers simplify and automate their path to the cloud, Data Domain has introduced new cloud capabilities with Data Domain Cloud Tier.

Data Domain Cloud Tier:

  • Is the ONLY protection storage to natively tier deduplicated data to the cloud
  • Ensures that only unique data is sent and data lands on the cloud object storage already deduplicated
  • Provides best-of-breed technology that allows businesses to gain the advantages of cloud while lowering overall TCO

Protecting more data in a smaller footprint greatly reduces overall TCO and as more data is sent, cost savings will continue to increase over time

Protection with Data Domain Cloud Tier

Data Domain Cloud Tier will require a separate software license and will be available to order in Q3 of 2016. Pricing details will be communicated at that time.
