Exploring VMware Cloud on AWS Eco System Partners: Part 1 – Dell EMC

Customer Challenges with respect to Data Protection in the Cloud:

As more organizations adopt the cloud to expand their production environment, many have to continue running the same data protection workflows as when they were solely on-premises. Using different data protection solutions for on-premises and cloud environments can create data silos, increase operational complexity and data protection costs, and make meeting backup windows and RTOs/RPOs more difficult. To avoid this problem, organizations adopting the cloud to expand their production environment, are looking for a way to continue running the same data protection workflows they’ve already established on-premises.

Introducing Dell EMC Data Protection for VMware Cloud on AWS

With the introduction of Dell EMC for VMware Cloud™ on AWS, users are able to overcome this challenge when expanding on-premises environments to the cloud. To provide this capability to users, we’ve been working closely with Dell EMC, who were the first VMware partner certified to provide data protection for VMware Cloud on AWS when the service was introduced at VMworld 2017.

Just as VMware Cloud on AWS enables vAdmins to manage cloud resources with familiar VMware tools, Dell EMC seamlessly integrates cloud and on-premises data protection. This allows users to use the same data protection tools in the cloud that they already use on-premises, without needing to upskill.
