Dell has added cyber recovery (and more) to its APEX storage cloud platform ...

Dell Technologies intends to make its APEX storage cloud platform a reality zero for cloud app development, which will bring the majority of enterprise IT creation to the table in 2022 and beyond.

The first mostly-in-person conference of Dell Tech World since the epidemic hit in spring 2020, the Black Rock, Texas-based company today introduced a flotilla of new capabilities for the APEX development package, the most important of which is a new cyber recovery function.

APEX brings to the foreground a cloud service offering that corresponds to a portfolio-as-a-service. Its versatility is why Dell believes users may invest any kind of cloud app or infrastructure into its catch-all APEX backstop.

Dell manages cyber recovery

Dell manages the day-to-day cyber recovery vault operations and assists with data recovery. Dell provides standard configurations, Dell-assisted recovery options, and insight from over 2,000 isolated vault solutions globally, according to Manca.

We''ve already had our GA APEX product on our storage and compute services, combined with a combination of APEX private cloud and a APEX hybrid cloud, according to Manca. We have a whole set of customized offers, which allows customers to perform those tasks in our flex-on-demand program.

What youre intend to see now that the APEX basics are up, is that well be adding data protection and some other features. What youe intend to see us do now is move up the stack more towards solutions.

Users want to help reduce complexity, and they are looking for solutions that use a common approach to managing data wherever it goes from public clouds to the data center, to the edge, according to Chuck Whitten, the co-chief operating officer of Dell Technologies. We are developing a portfolio of software and services that simplify on-premises and multi-cloud environments and offers, according to Whitten.

In public clouds, Dell offers cyber recovery on-premises.

According to a recent Gartnerreport, global information security and risk management end-user spending will reach around $168 billion in 2022, up more than $13 billion from 2021. Dell is developing new solutions for managed cyber recovery and public cloud cyber recovery solutions for multi-cloud environments.

Dell has announced a cloud-specific set of capabilities for Microsoft Azure and AWS. Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery will be added to other Dell offerings available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and will allow companies to do the following:

  • Deploy an isolated cyber vault in the public cloud to more securely protect and isolate data away from a ransomware attack, improving cyber resiliency and helping reduce the impact of cyberattacks; and
  • Provide flexible recovery options in the event of a cyberattack including recovery within the data center, in a new Azure private network, or in an unimpacted Azure environment.

Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery will give developers the ability to do the following:

  • Use adaptive analytics, scan metadata and complete files, and implement machine learning and forensic tools to detect, diagnose and speed data recovery.
  • Monitor files and databases to determine if a cyberattack has occurred and identify the last known uncorrupted copy of data to speed a more secure and confidential recovery.

Dell and Snowflake have teamed up to develop multi-cloud technologies.

Manca claims that the collaboration with Dell and Snowflake will entail data from Dell enterprise storage and the Snowflake Data Cloud. Despite the fact, they promise greater flexibility to operate in multi-cloud environments, meet data sovereignty requirements, and easily transform data into insights wherever it resides.

Customers of Dell and Snowflake will be able to use on-premises data stored on the Snowflake Data Cloud while maintaining their data local or seamlessly copying it to public clouds in the second half of 2022.

Apex availability

Dell APEX Cyber Recovery Services is now available in the United States, with expanded availability planned for later this year, according to the company. Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Microsoft Azure will be globally available in the second half of 2022. CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS will be globally available in the second half of 2022.
