Within your event Dell Technologies World 2022Dell has announced several innovations designed to improve its services and products related to data, security and multicloud environments. These include a suite of managed data recovery services for its APEX services portfolio and platform, as well as several data protection technologies that will be available in the AWS and Microsoft Azure public clouds.
In addition, Dell is partnering with cloud-based data analytics provider Snowflake, with the goal of enabling businesses to run the information they have in their data centers, on Dell storage, to Dell’s data cloud. Snowflake, being able to keep it locally or copy it to the public cloud.
The main novelty for the APEX platform, announced in 2020, focused on converting Dell’s product portfolio to the “as a service” format, it is Dell APEX Cyber Recovery Services. This is the first in a range of solutions for APEX designed to offer platform customers as close to a cloud-like experience as possible. The purpose of APEX Cyber Recovery Services is to facilitate the recovery of cyber attacks to companies.
With this service, Dell handles the management of day-to-day “safe” recovery operations, as well as providing data recovery assistance. The company therefore offers a recovery-as-a-service experience with standardized configurations, simplified Dell-assisted recovery options, and expertise from nearly 2,000 virtual vault solutions deployed globally.
In addition, Dell will extend the reach of its multicloud ecosystem and accelerate access to its public cloud data protection offering with Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azureavailable through the Azure marketplace, and with which organizations can deploy an isolated virtual safe in the public cloud with which to protect and isolate their data from ransomware attacks, improve their cyber resilience and help reduce the impact of cyber attacks in general.
Your users will have flexible recovery options if they experience a cyberattack, including recovery from the data center itself, to a new Azure private network, or to an unaffected Azure environment.
In addition, Dell has launched, in collaboration with AWS, CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS. With this new service, companies will be able to use adaptive analytics, scan metadata and file completion, and implement forensic and machine learning tools to detect, diagnose, and accelerate data recovery. They will also have the opportunity to monitor files and databases to determine if they have suffered a cyberattack and identify the last copies of data that are not corrupted to speed up a more secure and confidential recovery.
Dell has also demonstrated how its software can be used in public clouds, such as AWS and Azure, thanks to Project Alpine, presented in January and which will offer data mobility and consistent operations in public cloud and on-premises environments. With Dell’s public cloud storage software, customers will be able to seamlessly move data to the cloud and take advantage of cloud-based analytics services. Developers will also be able to build applications once and deploy them at any point needed to create a consistent cloud-native experience across multiple public clouds.
Additionally, Dell and Snowflake will work to connect data from Dell enterprise storage to the Snowflake data cloud. Thanks to this collaboration, companies will have more flexibility to work in multicloud environments, meet data sovereignty requirements and turn data into information, and do it from the point where it is stored. Both companies will continue to make progress on product integrations and joint projects for upcoming releases in the second half of 2022.
Dell APEX Cyber Recovery Services is available now in the United States, with availability expanding to other markets later this year. Meanwhile, Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure and CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS will arrive throughout the second half of 2022.
