Dell customers can now replicate their AppAssure backups in the Microsoft Azure cloud, thanks to the launch of a new virtual machine offering available to download from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
AppAssure is a set of data backup and recovery software, which allows customers to protect their workloads and restore operations in the event of an incident. With this new offering, they can create a virtual machine (VM) replication target for AppAssure backups in Azure, helping to simplify backup retention, archiving and recovery. It also gives customers an alternative to what can sometimes be costly and complex secondary and co-location sites.
“The AppAssure Replication Target for Azure adds a critical component to an already market-leading set of capabilities for AppAssure customers,” said Brett Roscoe, executive director and general manager of data protection at Dell Software. “The solution makes it easy for customers to integrate Microsoft’s leading cloud capability into their backup strategies, allowing them to deploy a replication and disaster recovery target in minutes at a fraction of the cost of traditional replication techniques.”
The AppAssure Replication Target VM for Azure is being offered to customers on a ‘bring your own license’ basis. Those without an AppAssure software licence can sign up for a free one-month trial.
