Dell Technologies has announced the new Dell EMC PowerProtect DP series integrated appliances and PowerProtect Data Manager software advancements.

The company has also launched PowerProtect Cyber Recovery, claimed to be the first data vaulting solution endorsed by Sheltered Harbor to enhance cyber resiliency in the financial sector.

PowerProtect DP series is Dell’s next generation integrated data protection appliance, offering complete backup, recovery, replication, deduplication, cloud readiness with disaster recovery, and long-term retention to the public cloud.

According to the company, the PowerProtect DP series delivers up to 38% faster backups and up to 45% faster restores. It also offers instant access and restore of up to 50% greater IOPS3 (Input/Output Operations Per Second), compared to the previous generation, allowing customers to quickly and easily recover critical data.

It also provides up to one petabyte of usable capacity with 30% more logical capacity, with up to 65:1 data reduction, enabling customers to store more data in the same space with more cost-effective systems.

Further, the PowerProtect DP series consumes up to 23% less power than previous generation, delivering significant energy and cost-savings.

PowerProtect Data Manager now protects in-cloud workloads in Microsoft Azure and AWS, offering customers greater choice and flexibility in deploying the software.

Data Manager now also offers a VMware-certified solution to protect the VMware Cloud Foundation infrastructure layer.

The company will make Dell EMC PowerProtect DP series appliances – DP4400, DP5400, DP5900, DP8900 – available globally in December 2020.
