In addition to being able to be deployed in the AWS, Microsoft Azure and GCP clouds, Data Manager can back data up, recover data, and tier data to AWS, Microsoft Azure and GCP clouds for archiving and long-term retention.
PowerProtect Data Manager can be purchased standalone, packaged within the Dell Data Protection Suite, or as a preintegrated appliance. It can also be deployed in AWS, Microsoft Azure and GCP, and procured through these providers’ respective marketplaces.
