GDT Webinar Series – How to Fail at Security? Reserve Your Spot

Who doesn’t want a turnkey, integrated backup solution?

That’s exactly what you’ll get with Dell EMC’s Integrated Data Protection Appliance

Two words: data protection. There probably isn’t a more important combination of words in the IT industry. Obviously, Dell EMC agrees―their latest IDPA (integrated data protection appliance) is a turnkey, pre-integrated appliance that brings together protection storage, search and analytics, and across a wide array of applications and platforms.  And with Dell EMC’s new capabilities that address cloud data protection, critical information can be backed up from anywhere in the world, and at any time.

Listening to the marketplace

Through, primarily, empirical knowledge, Dell EMC designed their DP4400 to address what the marketplace needed: simplicity. And that’s exactly what it is―the DP4400 is a single, stand-alone, 2U appliance that not only provides considerable turnkey (and easily upgradeable) storage, but is also very affordable when compared to competing products.

Cloud Ready

Cloud features are built into the DP4400, and no cloud gateways are needed. It not only provides data protection, but natively extends the same level of protection to the cloud. Cloud Disaster Recovery (DR) and Long-Term Retention (LTR) are built into the DP4400, and add-ons are not only easy to deploy, but scalable.
And speaking of LTR, Dell EMC guarantees 55:1 deduplication to a private, public or hybrid cloud, and the DP4400 affords for the management of up to 14 petabytes (PB) of capacity (yep, that’s on a single DP4400). What does this really mean? It means that managing virtual or physical tape libraries is a thing of the past.

VMware (a Dell EMC company)

The DP4400 is optimized for VMware, which Dell picked up as part of its purchase of EMC in 2016. Automation is provided across the entire VMware data protection stack, including VM backup policies and automation.

And there’s more…

The DP4400 is:

  • Customer-installable/upgradable, and a 2U appliance (ah, that means it’s small―3 ½ inches tall),
  • “Grow-in-place” rich (24-96TB), and requires no additional hardware,
  • Capable of providing up to 2x shorter backups,
  • Requires up to 98% less bandwidth, and
  • Comes with a 3-year satisfaction guarantee and up to 55:1 data protection deduplication guarantee through Dell EMC’s Future-Proof Loyalty Program.

This only scratches the surface of what Dell EMC’s DP4400 IDPA can bring to your organization. For more information, contact
