“The availability of cloud services has enabled us to establish a new practice focused on delivering complete implementation of Dell Products integrated with the cloud,” says Rick Gouin, CTO of Winslow Technology Group.
Dell Technologies is making a significant push towards strengthening its cybersecurity partnerships with two of the world’s leading public cloud providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. The company aims to unlock the full potential of multi-cloud environments by integrating its PowerProtect data protection and replication solution with AWS and Azure. This move is set to create new business opportunities for Dell’s channel partners, as well as simplify the cloud journey for end-users.
The announcement was made at Dell Technologies World, where the company revealed the launch of Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure, as well as CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS. These new solutions will allow partners to better capture more business by creating technology partnerships and integrations with AWS and Azure. Dan O’Brien, senior vice president of technology solutions at Presidio, a leading provider of servers, storage and hyperconverged infrastructure, said, “Having the ability to say ‘Hey. We’ve got integrations with the public cloud.’ And having both Azure and Amazon being there hits a lot of the customers workload needs. So you need that flexibility, because customers have contracts or preferences to do business with one or the other.”
The integration of Dell’s PowerProtect solution with Azure and AWS will also give customers more flexibility in choosing which public cloud they prefer to use. With more and more companies shifting to the cloud, data protection and recovery solutions are becoming increasingly important. The integration of Dell’s PowerProtect solution with Azure and AWS will allow customers to protect their critical data across multiple cloud environments, ensuring that they can quickly recover from any potential data loss or breaches.
The apparent thaw between Dell and its cloud rivals over the past few years is driving new lines of business for its partners. In the past, Dell was seen as a direct competitor to AWS and Azure, but over the past few years, the company has shifted its focus to becoming a provider of complementary solutions. This has led to the development of new business models and opportunities for Dell’s partners, as well as simplifying the cloud journey for end-users.
Dell’s PowerProtect Cyber Recovery solution for Azure and CyberSense for AWS are designed to provide customers with the ability to protect their data across multiple cloud environments. The solution for Azure allows customers to protect their data in Azure and recover it in the event of a data loss or breach. CyberSense for AWS allows customers to detect and respond to potential threats in their AWS environment.
The integration of Dell’s PowerProtect solution with Azure and AWS is a significant step forward for the company in the cybersecurity space. It will allow Dell to better serve its customers, and provide them with the flexibility to protect their data across multiple cloud environments. With the increasing importance of data protection and recovery solutions, Dell’s partnership with Azure and AWS is a smart move that will help the company to better serve its customers and partners in the future.
