Dell has launched a line of software and services that aim to address the challenges businesses face as the volume of data they need to manage grows.
These new products collectively aim to extend the availability of virtual machine (VM) backups, simplify data management and strengthen recovery.
They include Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager with Transparent Snapshots, Dell EMC PowerProtect Appliances with Smart Scale, and Dell Technologies Managed Services for Cyber Recovery Solution.
“While ransomware attacks can be devastating for people and businesses, accepting defeat as inevitable is not the solution,” said Jeff Boudreau, president and CEO of Dell Infrastructure Solutions Group.
“We understand that the stakes have never been higher and that the task of protecting data has never been more complex. As a leading provider of data protection hardware and software, our portfolio addresses this growing challenge by helping clients adopt a holistic cybersecurity and data protection strategy to identify, protect, detect, respond to and recover from ransomware. and other cyber attacks.
By adding transparent snapshots to the Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager, the company hopes to offer businesses new ways to protect their virtual machines at scale. Virtual machine image-level backups are simplified and automated, with transparent snapshots providing five times faster backups and five times the reduction in virtual machine latency.
Adding Smart Scale to Dell EMC PowerProtect appliances also allows customers to configure multiple appliances – up to 32 – in a single pool. This gives them the ability to manage large sets of data in a single entity.
The latest of these announcements, Dell Technologies Managed Services for Cyber Recovery, helps businesses reduce the risk of data loss by enabling Dell experts to manage the day-to-day operations of cyber recovery vaults. It is a set of managed services that build on Dell’s portfolio of consulting, deployment and support services.

According to the study, companies now manage an average of 14.6 PB of data, up from 1.45 PB five years ago. As a result, 67% are not convinced that critical data can be recovered in the event of a destructive attack or loss, while 62% believe that their existing data protection measures are insufficient to deal with ransomware threats.
