Dell EMC unveils its Integrated Data Protection Appliance



Dell EMC has announced its data backup and protection solutions that enable customers to ensure data is secure, backed up and protected against disasters and outages. The Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) converges protection storage, software, search and analytics in a single appliance, provides data protection across a wide ecosystem of applications and platforms, and offers native cloud-tiering for long-term retention. In addition, Dell EMC also rolling out new capabilities to its cloud data protection portfolio to enable customers to simply and effectively protect and back up their data anywhere, anytime.


Dell EMC IDPA is a pre-integrated appliance designed to help organizations meet these data protection challenges. DPA also provides integration with key business critical applications and platforms for improved performance and greater levels of data owner control, including: MongoDB, Hadoop and MySQL. Further, IDPA offers the simplicity of a single user interface for typical daily operations. Through this UI, users can schedule and manage protection jobs, set up policies for long-term retention in cloud and comply with the protection SLAs.


Dell EMC offers a comprehensive portfolio of multi-cloud data protection solutions for organizations at any point in their cloud journey. Currently, more than 150 PB of data in the cloud is managed by Dell EMC Data Protection technology, which is 2x the closest competitor. The enhancements to our portfolio that further broaden our cloud data protection capabilities adding two new uses-cases for Protection Storage in the cloud and Disaster Recovery to the cloud.


With the release of Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE) 3.1, organizations can gain the performance, efficiency, and reliability of Data Domain in the cloud. DD VE enables back up of both traditional and emerging workloads in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure and efficient replication to, from and within the cloud. Additionally, the Data Protection Suite can perform monitoring and reporting of these backups in the cloud.


The combination of Data Domain and the Data Protection Suite can now provide low-cost disaster recovery to the cloud by enabling organizations to extend protection of their on-premises environments to AWS S3. Data is sent securely and efficiently, requiring minimal compute cycles and footprint within AWS. In the event of a disaster, VM images can be restored and run from within AWS. Since neither Data Protection Suite nor Data Domain are required in the cloud, compute cycles are only required in the event of a restore, enabling users to capture additional cost savings.


Ripu Bajwa, Country Manager – Data Protection Solutions, Dell EMC India, said, “Dell EMC IDPA is an integrated solution that provides convergence across for key vectors for data protection. It brings together protection storage and software, including powerful search, monitoring and analytics, provides coverage for a wide range of applications, both physical and virtual, delivers efficient and high performance protection and recovery, and extends data protection seamlessly to public and private cloud. It will help us to build a comprehensive portfolio of multi-cloud data protection solutions which will help our customers to scale without worrying about security, is cost-effective and reliable. Disaster recovery to the cloud will ensure that data is sent requiring minimal compute cycles and footprint within AWS.”
