As organizations continue to move data, applications and infrastructure to the cloud, IT departments need cloud backup solutions that can protect data in increasingly complex environments – without increasing costs or management burden on IT teams.
Dell Technologies, a market leader in data protection and backup solutions, offers cloud backup technologies that provide comprehensive protection and backup of data in public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
The Dell EMC Data Protection Suite is a comprehensive data backup and recovery solution for organizations of all types and sizes.
Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager offers software defined data protection, automation, operational agility, and self-service backup and recovery.
Leverage scalable, high-speed, and cloud-enabled data protection storage for backup, archive and disaster recovery.
The cloud can provide significant benefits in terms of improving application performance and reducing capital and operational costs. But cloud technologies also introduce a number of complex challenges for cloud backup, recovery, long-term retention and disaster recovery.
Speed of backups
Large backups may take many hours, impacting application performance and increasing the cost of WAN bandwidth required to backup servers to cloud storage.
Managing compliance is more difficult in the cloud, as organizations have less control over their data, making it harder to demonstrate compliance with a wide variety of regulatory frameworks.
In hybrid and multi-cloud environments, cloud backup may need to cover data that resides in a variety of locations, while also integrating backups with data from virtualized environments and on-premises servers.
Cost of storage
While cloud computing may offer cost-savings over the expense of purchasing, installing and managing on-premises hardware, those efficiencies can be easily wiped out by the cost of a large backup storage footprint in the cloud.
All of these issues can combine to make managing cloud data and cloud backup more arduous, time-consuming and costly, further mitigating the cost-savings and other benefits of moving infrastructure to the cloud.
As a premier provider of data protection and backup solutions for organizations of every size, Dell provides cloud data protection and cloud data backup solutions that help organizations protect information while providing greater operational efficiency, resiliency and scalability for digital transformation in the cloud.

What is cloud backup?
Cloud backup is an umbrella term for backup systems that copy or replicate important business data to storage in the cloud. Data may be copied from on-premises infrastructure, virtualized environments or from other cloud storage sites.
What are common cloud backup use cases?
Common use cases include:
Why is deduplication important for cloud backup?
Storing data in the cloud can be expensive in both the short term and long term. Successful deduplication can ensure that only the minimal amount of data required is backed up to the cloud, helping to reduce storage costs.
Dell EMC PowerProtect DP series appliances, the next generation of Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA), offer complete data backup, replication and recovery, all in one.
PowerProtect appliances provide midsize and enterprise organizations with data backup, recovery and replication.
