Dell EMC has announced availability of a new Dell EMC NetWorker with CloudBoost solution for added protection of enterprise applications running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as well as the extension of the industry-leading Data Domain protection storage platform to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
Dell EMC is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver information technology as a service. The cloud is fundamental to this transformation. Through innovative products, services and partnerships, Dell EMC accelerates the journey to the cloud, helping IT departments to manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset — information — in a more agile, trusted and cost-efficient way.
NetWorker with CloudBoost provides a complete enterprise-grade backup solution for applications running on AWS. NetWorker with CloudBoost can run completely self-contained within an AWS environment and includes client-side optimized backups, inline de-duplication, encryption and compression with backup directly to Amazon S3.
NetWorker can enable both new and existing enterprise customers to leverage Amazon S3 and Amazon S3 Standard – Infrequent Access (Standard – IA) designed to protect their AWS workloads utilizing the familiar tools and interfaces available within their on-premises environment.
“The availability of Dell EMC NetWorker with CloudBoost on AWS is a particularly exciting announcement for all of the customers who have come to depend on Dell EMC solutions for data protection in their on-premises environments,” says Bill Vass, vice-president: technology at Amazon Web Services. “Now these customers can get the same data protection experience on AWS, providing seamless operational backup and recovery, and long-term retention across all of their environments.”
A single NetWorker with CloudBoost environment can span use cases such as extending on-premises data protection to the cloud for long term retention, direct-to-cloud data protection, and in-the-cloud data protection where all components – backup clients, NetWorker components, and CloudBoost appliance – are fully supported to run on AWS.
Dell EMC Data Domain consolidates backup, archive and disaster recovery all on a single system and is the industry leader in protection storage with greater than 60% market share. By leveraging variable-length deduplication, Data Domain systems are able to reduce the amount of disk storage needed to retain and protect data by up to 30x.
With Data Domain Cloud Tier, customers can now natively tier data to Amazon S3 for long-term retention. Only unique data is sent directly from Data Domain to the cloud and data lands on the cloud object storage already de-duplicated for a highly efficient and cost-effective solution.
“Our collaboration with Amazon Web Services allows us to follow through on our commitment to protect all of our customer’s data, regardless of where it resides,” says Russ Stockdale, vice-president of data protection cloud at Dell EMC. “For those customers looking to utilize Amazon S3 storage for long-term retention, we can now offer a native tiering experience within Data Domain.”
Businesses today are faced with explosive data growth, strict retention policies, and pressure to reduce costs. IT is increasingly looking to low-cost, high capacity object storage in the cloud as a way to address these challenges. Data Domain Cloud Tier provides best-of-breed technology that can allow businesses to gain the advantages of cloud economics with a seamless data management experience on- and off-premise. Data Domain with Cloud Tier offers long-term retention for the modern data centre that is simple, efficient and open.
