The Data Protection Suite product mix for each organization depends on the organization’s vertical market, use cases, and RPO and RTO targets. Examples include:
- A proven use case in the education market is to use Data Protection Suite plus PowerProtect DD to protect general-purpose workloads (Microsoft applications).
- In the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, a customer is using Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines as a part of their converged environment to perform synchronous replication of their general-purpose workloads (Microsoft and Citrix). The customer has several manufacturing plants and must share data between them as well as back to the primary data center.
- In the healthcare market, a customer is using Data Protection Suite and the PowerProtect DD system for their general-purpose workloads, and they used the VPLEX solution for their mission-critical application, Meditech. The organization saw 30 percent data growth and needed a long-term continuous availability and workload mobility solution. They couldn’t afford the 4 hours of downtime per month for maintenance on their Meditech environment because it had a negative impact on patient care. Implementing the VPLEX platform with their VxBlock System infrastructure has provided a continuously available application for their caregivers in a seamlessly managed solution.
