There is always a lot of talk about simplifying and easing this or that, but the reality is data is expanding and the push to adopt new strategies like hybrid and multi-cloud are creating as many challenges as they create solutions. Data Protection needs to adapt to the constant evolving landscape. Since one size can’t fit all here, Dell Technologies is releasing new appliances and software to tackle the modern data protection needs.

First up, let’s take a look at the new appliance series. The Dell EMC PowerProtect DP series is stated as a next generation integrated data protection appliance, offering complete backup, recovery, replication, deduplication, cloud readiness with disaster recovery, and long-term retention to the public cloud. The appliances are an all-in-one solution for managing explosive data growth, lowering costs, and simplifying the increasing complexities.

Benefits include:

  • Extreme performance: Delivers p to 38% faster backups and up to 45% faster restores. PowerProtect DP also offers instant access and restore of up to 50% greater IOPS, compared to the previous generation, allowing customers to quickly and easily recover critical data.
  • Greater efficiency: Provides up to 1 petabyte of usable capacity with 30% more logical capacity, with up to 65:1 data reduction, enabling customers to store more data in the same space with more cost-effective systems.
  • Energy savings: Consumes up to 23% less power than previous generation, delivering significant energy and cost-savings.

Along with new hardware, Dell is updating its software in PowerProtect Data Manager. The updates focus on Kubernetes and cloud data protection including workloads in Microsoft Azure and AWS. On top of that, PowerProtect Data Manager now supports the VMware Tanzu portfolio including providing native vCenter Storage Policy Based Management integration for VM protection. The software offers a VMware-certified solution to protect the VMware Cloud Foundation infrastructure layer.

For Kubernetes, PowerProtect Data Manager is said to offer comprehensive protection for containerized modern applications with agentless, application-consistent protection of open source databases, including PostgreSQL and Apache Cassandra. On top of that, protection is added for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to back up Kubernetes cluster-level resources.

To help protect data from ransomware or insider attacks, Dell announced PowerProtect Cyber Recovery a bit ago. The solution allows customer to monitor data integrity through a combination of CyberSense analytics and machine learning capabilities as well giving customers forensic tools to help discover, diagnose and remediate ongoing attacks. Dell is proud to announce the its PowerProtect Cyber Recovery has been endorsed by the not-for-profit, industry-led initiative dedicated to enhancing the stability and resiliency of the financial sector in the wake of increased cyber-attacks, Sheltered Harbor.
