Dell offers an expanded ecosystem of multi-cloud data management tools for its customers with a focus on data recovery services, adding recovery storage support for local as well as public cloud assets.
“Our customers want help to reduce complexity and are looking for solutions that use a common approach to data management wherever they live – from public clouds, to the data center, to the periphery,” said Chuck Wheaton, chief operating officer, Dell Technologies. , in a statement. “We build a portfolio of software and services that simplify local and multi-cloud environments and offers.”
The system aims to help recover from cyber attacks
As a first step in this effort, Dell expanded its APEX portfolio locally IaaS (infrastructure as a service) cloud-managed solution with the introduction of Dell APEX cyber recovery services. This add-on aims to simplify recovery from cyber attacks by managing a daily cyber recovery vault with other Dell-assisted recovery options.
The Dell Cyber Recovery Vault is an isolated environment in which critical data backups are stored physically and logically isolated from other systems and locations. The vault has a recovery path designed to minimize downtime, costs and lost revenue from cyber attacks.
Dell claims expertise in 2,000 isolated vault solutions deployed worldwide. Dell APEX cyber recovery services were provided in the United States this month, with more availability planned later this year.
“While multi-hybrid cloud interconnectivity can provide significant flexibility, it also increases the need for sophisticated recovery capabilities that ensure business sustainability,” said Gary McAllum, senior analyst at TAG Cyber. “In today’s environment of cyber threats, companies of all sizes are increasingly targeting destructive and destructive attacks that threaten business operations. It’s clear that Dell recognizes this opportunity with its new cyber recovery capabilities.
Cyberrecovery supports Azure and AWS
Dell plans to strengthen the reach of its multi-cloud ecosystem by adding support for recovering partner public clouds, including Microsoft Azure and AWS (Amazon Web Services).
As part of its public cloud data protection proposals, Dell is launching Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure in addition to Dell’s existing offerings through the Microsoft Azure market, which will allow organizations to deploy isolated cyber signals in the public cloud. to isolate and protect data away from ransomware attack. The Microsoft Azure Recovery Environment (or Vault) can be deployed in data centers, a new Azure private network, or an unaffected Azure environment, Dell said.
Also added to this effort is the announcement of CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS. CyberSense will allow organizations to use adaptive analysis, scan metadata and complete files, and implement machine learning tools and forensics to detect, diagnose, and accelerate data recovery. It will also monitor the databases to trace to the last undamaged copy of the data to achieve a speedy recovery.
“The technologies used by the public cloud integration business are becoming increasingly automated and highly efficient,” says McAllum. “Dell’s cyber recovery tools will no doubt be based on cloud integration technology to provide a user-friendly and most hassle-free experience. This proposal should be a welcome addition to the already strong portfolio of business opportunities in their APEX portfolio. “
According to McAlum, integrated cyber recovery is still a growing market, with only a few vendors, including IBM and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, offering the same level of comprehensive, multi-cloud recovery capabilities as Dell.
Both Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure and CyberSense will be available globally in the second half of 2022.
