Simplify and Automate Your Organization’s Data Protection with Dell EMC

An Increasing Focus on Automation

Digital transformation is not only changing businesses and operating models, it’s putting more pressure on IT organizations to automate. Many IT teams have already achieved some efficiencies by virtualizing and automating compute resources. However, the management and delivery of provisioned resources on top of critical compute, storage, network, and most importantly, data protection resources need improvement. Automation solves many of these problems. Automation enables IT agility in a way that’s standardized, consistent, scalable, repeatable, and secure. A fully automated environment can reduce the time it takes to deliver production-ready resources to business stakeholders from weeks to less than a day.

Automated and Orchestrated Cloud Data Protection

To keep up with the demands of the business, organizations need a modern data center with a unified platform for managing private, public, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments. With VMware vRealize Suite (vRS), the foundation of the VMware Cloud Management Platform (CMP), is designed to help your organization gain the agility and speed that are essential to claiming and maintaining a competitive advantage. At the same time, the IT team gets the tools they need to manage uptime, performance, and cost of infrastructure and applications.

As more users adopt VMware and VMware vRealize Automation (vRA), Dell EMC’s deep integration with VMware’s user interface becomes more and more important. Pair VMware vRealize Suite with Dell EMC Data Protection and the solution offers automation, governance and compliance for users with the deepest integration points for your cloud orchestration portal.
