Digital transformation was the number one priority for over 70 percent of businesses last year, and the speed at which many enterprises are undertaking it is accelerating quickly. Following in its wake is IT transformation – for as quickly as digital technologies change, IT and how they manage those technologies must accelerate just as fast. Enter Dell EMC VcRail Appliance.
Built for VMware, with VMware
VxRail Appliances provides natively integrated compute, storage and virtualization that radically simplifies your IT infrastructure.
As the only turnkey Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) appliance fully integrated and tested with VMware vSphere and Virtual SAN software, VxRail provides a well-known and proven foundation for the Software Defined Data Center, delivering certainty in your IT operations and end user experiences.
As HCI expands to more use cases, and as workloads increasingly shift to the cloud, customers look for increased capabilities and more cost-effective scaling. That’s why VxRail Appliances use a dynamic, modular, pay-as-you-grow approach to their natively integrated compute, storage and virtualization.
Keep your new Hyperconverged Infrastructure secure
Does your current data protection solution simplify and scale for your VMware environments? It should. Comprehensive data protection for VxRail Appliance is more than just backup and recovery, meeting the requirements of your virtualized workloads. Business-critical data and applications require continuous data protection for any-point in time recovery, as well as proactive monitoring to ensure service level objectives are met.
Dell EMC Data Protection provides simple, fast and efficient protection of data and applications at the right service level based on business value. Solutions for VxRail include software-only and converged data protection appliances, offering:
- Centralized Backup And Recovery
Source-side deduplication can shorten backup windows by up to 2x1. Recovery is simple, while providing fast access to backup data. Instant access to a VM image enables rapid deployment of production images into test and development environments, as well as full image recovery for disaster recovery.
- Continuous Data Protection
Dell EMC Data Protection is the only data protection solution with integration into all VMware interfaces. Backup and VMware Administrators manage data protection through the VMware interfaces they already know. And, automated replication of backup data ensures that you have reliable off-site recovery, including long term retention.
- Cloud Readiness With Disaster Recovery And Long-Term Retention To The Cloud
Data recovery is the goal of all data protection solutions, but Dell EMC delivers reliability and consistency. Application consistent backups ensure you can restore your mission-critical applications. And, fast file-level restore ensures business continuity with minimal latency.
Automated and efficient data movement enables you to leverage public, private or hybrid clouds for long-term retention, without cloud gateways for cloud disaster recovery. With Dell EMC’s native Cloud Disaster Recovery, you can copy VM images to object storage within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 public cloud for minimal cost and cloud footprint. This capability allows for orchestrated disaster recovery testing, failovers in 3 clicks, and failbacks in 2 clicks from AWS to a new on-premises VM.
- Point In Time Recovery
Protect virtual machines with automated provisioning and orchestration capabilities for disaster and operational recovery with VM-level granularity. VMware Administrators can easily protect and replicate VMs with continuous replication for any point in time recovery – enabling interdependent application consistency.
Dell EMC’s solution is 100% software and is hypervisor-based – and includes automated disaster recovery integrated into VMware vCenter. It also provides local and remote replication over any distance with synchronous or asynchronous replication.
- Unified Analytics And Insight
You need monitoring, reporting and real-time analytics to provide your organization with unified visibility into the utilization, effectiveness and compliance of your data protection solution. By collecting and analyzing information across the entire infrastructure, Dell EMC gives you the ability to automate manual tasks to enable faster problem solving while simplifying management.
Centralized data collection of the data provides a single, comprehensive view of your data protection environment and activities. You can perform monitoring and reporting on the configuration, status and performance of your replication and be notified of unprotected VMs.
IT can manage all of it with a customizable, intuitive dashboard that simplifies monitoring critical activities, active management, and search with integrated recovery – all from a single pane of glass.
