CRN | Disaster Recovery for PowerScale Multi-cloud
By Mark Haranas
The Dell Technologies Cloud PowerScale for Multi-Cloud offering combines its PowerScale storage platform and native cloud services in Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud to offer customers direct multi-cloud access. The PowerScale for Multi-cloud service allows for a single data repository to be served to multiple clouds.
During Microsoft Ignite, Dell launched new disaster recovery capabilities for PowerScale for Multi-cloud thanks to the new integration with Superna Eyeglass DR Manager, which allows customers to replicate data from their data centers to a cloud-adjacent Faction-powered data center.
“PowerScale customers looking for a full cloud-enabled disaster recovery solution can now take advantage of Superna Eyeglass DR Manager for replication orchestration and metadata management,” said Joe CaraDonna, CTO of public cloud and Apex offerings at Dell Technologies, in a statement. “With the hosted software from Superna, users can protect themselves from disaster with confidence and enable continuous business operations by leveraging the cloud instead of incurring the cost and complexity of a dedicated secondary disaster recovery site.”
The feature set enables one-button failover, flexible SyncIQ scheduling, continuous readiness monitoring, disaster recovery testing, data loss exposure analysis and reporting. Applications can be recovered to the cloud-adjacent data center or in the customer’s public cloud of choice.
