This solution continues to offer new value with the latest release including newly integrated Data Protection capabilities for streamlined and trusted performance.Fortifying your Data Protection Strategy with Dell EMC Data Protection SolutionsCyberattacks, can have far-reaching effects resulting in downtime and data loss. Since CSPs are at the center of the modern transformation controlling and operating critical infrastructure, it is even more important to have a robust data protection strategy built around the principles of high availability to ensure service continuity. These trends and the continued evolution of cloud environments are causing CSPs to fortify their data protection strategy.¹Dell Analysis, February 2020Dell EMC’s data protection suite offers network administrators a simplified approach to control backup, recovery, and replication management with over 2.7 EB (exabytes) of data in the cloud. It is optimized for virtual environments, with a unique, client-side, global deduplication technology that eliminates redundant backup data before it is sent over the network and stored.Designed for the unique requirements of CSPs, this data protection suite seamlessly integrates with VMware Cloud Director (vCD) through Dell EMC Data Protection Extension (DPE) for vCD. Dell EMC DPE for vCD provides unified end-user NFV infrastructure management. This facilitates tenant self-service access through vCD’s tenant user interface (UI), allowing for tenant-level policy configuration and setup of tenant repositories. Additionally, for those with VMware Integrated Openstack (VIO), we have also validated and documented the integration of VIO with Dell’s Data Protection Suite.Dell EMC’s data protection suite includes both Avamar (source-based deduplication software) and Data Domain (target deduplication software) integrated through DD Boost (solution for optimized software interaction). These leading components provide fast, reliable, and flexible data protection that scales to the needs of the largest CSPs while allowing for expansion to the public cloud. Additionally, Dell EMC data protection suite provides encryption and file locking for data security, protecting critical infrastructure from cyber threats.Key features of the data protection suite include:VMware Cloud Director UI integrationTenant self-service accessClient-side global deduplicationDD Boost enhanced backup speedMulti-cloud environmentEncryption and file lockingNon-disruptive policy-based enforcementCBT and FLR for efficient data restoreDell EMC Ready Solution for VMware NFV PlatformWith Dell’s powerful data protection suite integrated with Dell EMC’s VMware NFV solution, there has not been a better platform to position CSPs for success.
