Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance tested in virtual environments

The demands on IT are growing every year, driven by more data, more applications, more devices, more users, and hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

This revolutionary growth increases data protection complexity, which is exacerbated as admins are also tasked with improving SLAs, RPOs, and RTOs of virtual environments.

Access this white paper to see the results of an ESG Technical Review in which the Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance was tested to see if the backup, replication, recovery, and cloud-ready solution can improve performance for users and efficiently protect virtual environments at scale.
