Midsized companies need to move faster, work smarter, and simplify operations to compete and win in today’s accelerated business environment. Moving to Microsoft Azure public cloud supports the speed and agility midsized companies demand to support innovation, disrupt markets, and improve user experience. Azure also enables companies to take advantage of a broad set of hybrid capabilities to deliver true hybrid consistency in applications, data, identity, security, and management across on-premises and cloud environments.

Leverage the Benefits of Microsoft Azure and Move DR to the Cloud

As midsized companies look to cloud-based data protection to minimize complexity, optimize costs, and ensure disaster recovery capabilities, Azure enables the benefits of moving to cloud while protecting against the potentially devasting impact of data breaches, malicious attacks and system failures.

Cloud disaster recovery (DR), also known as disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS), enables IT admins to back up data and applications to a secure off-premises location, providing off-site protection that enables virtual machines to quickly be brought up and running again in minutes in the case of a disaster – minimizing downtime and keeping your business up and running.

IDPA DP4400: Storage and Data Protection for Today, a Cloud-Ready Foundation for Tomorrow

The Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) DP4400 natively provides the ability to protect your onpremises environment. By combining enterprise-grade technology with simplicity and ease of use, the IDPA DP4400 helps midsized organizations take advantage of cloud efficiencies for data protection, disaster recovery, and long-term retention, all in a single appliance.

  • Simple and cost-effective to deploy
    The IDPA DP4400 is easy to deploy and does not require costly professional services or external resources to install, manage and maintain. The single management console and dashboard make the appliance easy for an IT generalist to use.
  • Scales with your business needs
    Available in a 2U form factor that can grow in place from 24 TB to 96 TB with no additional hardware, the IDPA DP4400 protects your investment by ensuring that when you’re ready to expand, so is your appliance.
  • Raises performance and lowers cloud storage costs
    The IDPA DP4400 can store directly to object storage to optimize costs, only using more expensive compute services when a recovery process leverages virtual machines. Because data is compressed before sending it over to the cloud repository and change block tracking is deployed to only send new data, there is no need to purchase or deploy a separate cloud gateway.
  • Eliminates complexity
    With only 3 clicks involved in a failover, and just 2 clicks needed to fail back, the IDPA DP4400 makes data recovery easier and less complicated than other methods.
  • Purpose-built for midsized organizations
    IDPA DP4400 capabilities include Dell EMC deduplication technology to provide up to a 55:1 average deduplication ratio, which reduces storage capacity requirements and drives down costs.
  • Optimized for VMware environments
    The IDPA DP4400 empowers vAdmins to perform most common backup and recovery tasks directly from the native vSphere UI, enabling your organization to leverage existing skillsets and resources while providing faster VMware backups and recoveries.
  • Large application ecosystem
    The IDPA DP4400 also integrates seamlessly with VMware vSphere and a broad ecosystem of thirdparty applications.
