PowerProtect Data Manager delivers a value to PowerProtect appliance customers that have cloud, VMware and Kubernetes environments. Data Manager protects in-cloud workloads in Azure and AWS, offering customers choice in deploying the software.

It supports the VMware Tanzu portfolio to protect customers’ modern applications. New integrations make it a solution to provide native vCenter Storage Policy Based Management integration for VM protection (6). Customers can save time and better protect their VMs by using well-known workflows from within their VMware vSphere environment to assign data protection policies. Data Manager also offers a VMware-certified solution to protect the VMware Cloud Foundation infrastructure layer.

It also offers protection for containerized modern applications with agentless, application-consistent protection of open source databases, including PostgreSQL and Apache Cassandra, in Kubernetes environments. Customers can protect Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to backup Kubernetes cluster-level resurces.

As companies embrace modern IT they also must adopt data protection solutions that can handle today’s challenges without losing sight of what lies ahead,” said Phil Goodwin, research director, enterprise infrastructure practice, IDC. “With these updates to the PowerProtect portfolio, Dell is simultaneously simplifying its portfolio and expanding its capabilities to protect both existing and emerging workload requirements.
