Dell Software announced the release of the Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite, a new data protection bundle that gives customers access to the company’s full backup and recovery software portfolio by way of a single capacity-based licensing model.
Dell Software’s first combined data protection offering, the Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite includes AppAssure, NetVault Backup and vRanger, delivering three variations of critical enterprise and virtualization backup software in one package to help customers create a highly resilient application environment across physical, virtual or cloud hosting infrastructures.
With the Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite, customers would be able to better align backup to business by mixing and matching data protection technologies to quickly and easily create a custom solution based upon their unique needs, in turn helping make their businesses more resilient.
The combination of AppAssure, NetVault Backup and vRanger gives customers access to a broad range of end-to-end backup and recovery capabilities in a single suite.
- AppAssure – enables customers to back up entire applications and data in minutes, and restore in seconds across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
- NetVault Backup – delivers cross-platform, enterprise-grade protection with unparalleled ease of use.
- vRanger – delivers scalable, agentless protection for both VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V.
Priced by front-end terabyte, the Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite features a capacity-based licensing model that would enable customers to access the specific data protection capabilities they need without having to overpay for those they don’t. Users can classify the criticality of their data and applications, and then use the specific Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite product that best matches the recovery requirements of a given asset.
The Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite will be available worldwide in the third quarter of 2014, both direct from Dell or through the channel. AppAssure, NetVault Backup and vRanger all remain available as individually priced, standalone offerings. All three are available direct from Dell or through the channel.
