Dell and Faction debut multi-cloud backup and data protection solutions

PowerScale for Multi-cloud claims to reduce cloud storage costs by up to 89%

Dell and Faction have announced new multi-cloud storage and data protection solutions for enterprises looking to monitor their critical data from a centralized location.

“Protecting against ransomware and other cyber attacks is quickly rising in importance for both IT and business executives,” said Joe CaraDonna, CTO of public cloud and APEX offerings at Dell Technologies.

“With the average cost of an attack being $13m, it’s easy to see why this is so concerning. As IT deployments become more complex, with on-prem deployments combined with applications running in multiple public clouds, it is hard to build a world class centralized solution to protect critical data from the modern threat of sophisticated cyberattacks… until today.”

Dell’s Cloud PowerProtect for Multi-cloud is a fully managed service that allows users to safeguard their data in multiple clouds from a single location. Building on this solution, Dell has announced a new security capability called Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery. 

Enhanced PowerProtect for Multi-cloud will enable customers to physically and logically isolate their critical data in an air-gapped cloud Cyber Recovery vault in a Faction-powered data center. Data immutability and CyberSense intelligent analytics are also included in the service to ensure enterprise-grade security. In the event of a cyber attack, users can easily move data from the vault to their data center choice, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or Oracle Cloud. 

What’s more, using Superna Eyeglass DR Manager with PowerScale for Multi-cloud, customers can mirror data from their data centers to Faction’s cloud-adjacent center. Users can also choose to recover and save applications in Faction’s data center or any other public cloud listed under Dell’s offerings. 

Superna Eyeglass DR Manager’s other interesting capabilities include one-button failover, flexible SyncIQ scheduling, continuous readiness monitoring, disaster recovery (DR) testing, data loss exposure analysis, and reporting.

According to IT analyst research and validation agency Enterprise Strategy Group, PowerScale for Multi-cloud lowers storage costs by up to 89%. The solution can also reach up to 2Tbps multi-cloud throughput via multiprotocol data access on PowerScale for network file system (NFS), server message block (SMB), Hadoop distributed file system (HDFS), and Amazon’s simple storage service (S3).

“The future of IT is hybrid – a world that balances the right public cloud services with the right on-premises infrastructure to provide the performance, scale, functionality and control required of modern applications and development paradigms. As customers consider this hybrid model, it is important to take a data-first approach,” added CaraDonna.
