With Dell Technologies, you can overcome all the challenges of managing cloud data backup.
Dell EMC Data Protection Suite minimizes the cost of cloud data backup in several ways. Faster hybrid cloud backups help to minimize WAN costs and mitigate the loss of productivity that occurs when long backups impact application performance.
Dell Technologies can also reduce hardware required for cloud data backups. The cost of compliance is less as well, thanks to policy-driven backup management that simplifies the task of managing and demonstrating compliance. Advanced deduplication technology enables organizations to minimize their storage footprint, reducing the cost of storing backup data in the cloud.
The ease with which IT administrators can manage backups not only reduces the complexity and administrative burden of cloud data backup, but also reduces the cost of staff resources required to configure and monitor backups on a daily basis.
