Dell bumps up data capabilities

Dell Technologies has made multiple storage-related announcements, including services to help organisations recover from ransomware attacks, and allowing them to use on-premises data with cloud-based SaaS.

Dell Apex Cyber Recovery Services is a managed service that takes care to transferring data to a vault and then assists with recovery following cyberattacks. This packaged service is based on Dell's experience of managing nearly 2000 data vaults.

The service is available immediately in the US, and will be extended to other areas later this year.

Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure deploys an isolated cyber vault in the public cloud to more securely protect and isolate data from ransomware attacks, with flexible recovery to a data centre, a new Azure private network, or an unimpacted Azure environment.

It will be globally available in the second half of 2022.

CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS is a similar service, but for AWS rather than Azure. It too will be available in the second half of this year.

Dell has demonstrated how its storage software could be used in public clouds such as AWS and Azure. Project Alpine, announced earlier this year, is intended to provide data mobility and consistent operations across on-premises and public cloud environments.

With Dell storage software in the public cloud, customers will be able to seamlessly move data to the cloud and leverage cloud-based analytics services, while developers will be able to write applications once and deploy them anywhere they are needed to create a consistent, cloud-native experience across multiple public clouds.

The plan is to support block, file and object storage across AWS, Azure and Google Cloud in a way that is consistent with Dell's PowerStore, PowerFlex, PowerScale and ObjectScale product families.

Dell and Snowflake have agreed to work together to connect data from Dell enterprise storage with the Snowflake Data Cloud, so customers can keep their data on-premises while processing it with the Snowflake Data Cloud, without requiring an on-premises Snowflake instance.

"This is a market innovation," said Dell Technologies senior vice president of business unit marketing Sam Grocott.

The necessary product integrations are expected in the second half of 2022.

Our customers want help reducing complexity and are seeking solutions that use a common approach to managing data wherever it lives – from public clouds, to the data centre, to the edge," said Dell Technologies co-COO Chuck Whitten.

"We are building a portfolio of software and services that simplifies on-premises and multi-cloud environments and offers."
