Virtustream Storage Cloud

Backup and Long-Term Retention (LTR)

Seamlessly extend backup data directly from Dell EMC protection storage to Virtustream Storage Cloud for enterprise-class, cost-effective long-term backup retention.


Enterprise-class storage, cloud economics

Virtustream Storage Cloud was built with the enterprise in mind, enabling secure, efficient and cost-effective long-term retention (LTR) of backups in a highly accessible cloud environment. Service plans range from long-term archive to highly available, so you can pick the service plan based on your data needs.

Resiliency comes standard

Built-in resiliency creates enterprise-class storage in a cloud environment, with up to 99.99999999999% (13 nines) data durability and up to 99.999% (5 nines) of availability and features such as read-after-failure to ensure resiliency and data integrity in the event of an unplanned outage.

Simplified storage with Dell EMC

Virtustream Storage Cloud integrates with Dell EMC industry-leading storage and data protection solutions for an unmatched end-to-end solution. Easily extend your on-premises storage to a hyper-scale, enterprise-class cloud storage environment and enjoy single-source purchasing and support, provisioning and management with simplified support and billing.

Dell EMC Data Domain with Data Domain Cloud Tier

Use Dell EMC Data Domain Cloud Tier to automatically move backup data directly from Dell EMC protection storage to Virtustream Storage Cloud for seamless, cost effective long-term backup retention with a subscription-based object storage service. No separate cloud gateway or virtual appliance is required, and you don't have to worry about any additional physical footprint or management overhead.

Dell EMC Data Domain Cloud Tier with Virtustream Storage Cloud enables cost-effective, long-term retention for the modern data center by only sending unique data directly from protection storage to the Virtustream cloud. Data lands on object storage already de-duplicated. Protecting more data in a smaller footprint greatly reduces overall TCO, and as more data is sent to Virtustream Storage Cloud, cost savings continue to increase over time.

Data security in the cloud is a huge concern for many customers. Use Data Domain and Virtustream Storage Cloud to ensure data remains secure with the ability to encrypt and lock data before tiering it to the cloud. Use Data Doman Cloud Tier with Virtustream Storage Cloud for a seamless, single-support experience from data center to cloud.
