"As a verified industry leader in Data Protection, Dell EMC was a strong choice for our first data protection solution supporting VMware Cloud on AWS", stated Rajiv Ramaswami, Chief Operating Officer, Products and Cloud Services, VMware. "The native integration across the VMware portfolio offers transparency and ease of use for our customers, especially those moving toward the software-defined data centre. This is an exciting first step in partner support for VMware Cloud for AWS."
This partnership further enhances data protection for VMware by leveraging Dell EMC's portfolio-wide native integration with VMware, particularly vSphere, so organisations can manage data protection functions through familiar VMware interfaces providing seamless, automated protection for data stored in VMware Cloud on AWS.
Dell EMC data protection will offer the same enterprise-grade protection for VMware Cloud on AWS as it does for on-premises and hybrid Cloud - meaning that all data is protected equally, no matter where it resides.
"Our entire portfolio is architected for tight integration with VMware, so being the first vendor to protect VMware Cloud on AWS is an easy extension of our existing partnership", stated Beth Phalen, President, Data Protection, Dell EMC. "Data protection needs and challenges don't go away even as customers move to a software-defined data centre, and the need for familiarity and simplicity is incredibly important as companies work to do more with less in a software-defined world. This new stage of our partnership with VMware is designed to give customers peace of mind for their data in VMware Cloud on AWS."
