Dell EMC in May introduced its Integrated Data Protection Appliance, or IDPA, a purpose-built, pre-integrated appliance bringing together data protection storage, software, search and analytics to protect data across a wide range of applications and platforms. According to Dell EMC, the IDPA offers fast deployment of data protection for physical and virtual workloads, and lets coverage seamlessly extend to the cloud with native cloud-tiering for long-term retention to private or public clouds. The appliances feature encryption, fault detection and healing, along with an average 55:1 deduplication rate for data both on-premises and in the cloud.
