In part 3 of this blog series we discussed our vision for future data protection.It will be a multi-year effort to fully realize, but our early efforts in this journey are already starting to bear fruit. Recently we released support for the protection of Kubernetes containers on VMware – a first-to-market data protection solution that will enable our customers to accelerate innovation and increase their agility across multi-cloud environments by leveraging containers for application deployments while ensuring the protection of critical data wherever containers are deployed.Going forward, our customers can expect to see a steady stream of new data protection capabilities being released on a quarterly basis as we continue to prime the pump of our agile software development engine. As we build for the future, it is important to point out that our industry leading data protection solutions continue to simplify the protection and security of critical workloads and data across private, public and hybrid cloud environments, while dramatically lowering the cost of protection in the cloud.Consider the four key capabilities that Dell EMC Data Protection solutions deliver to our customers today:1) Dell EMC Data Protection is native to the cloudIndustry-leading Dell EMC cloud data protection solutions are used by over 1,000 customers to protect over 2.7 Exabytes in the public cloud. The seamless integration with the cloud ecosystem and marketplace enables users to simply and rapidly install solutions such as PowerProtect DD Virtual Edition to efficiently protect applications and data in the public cloud while significantly reducing costs.Additionally, born-in-the-cloud workloads leveraging public cloud snapshots can be seamlessly protected using PowerProtect Cloud Snapshot Manager, a Dell EMC SaaS offering that automatically discovers, assigns policies and protects public cloud workloads and data across multiple clouds.And in a recent first-to-market solution, Dell Technologies delivers data protection support for Kubernetes containers through PowerProtect Data Manager. This gives organizations the ability to deploy workloads on containers across any cloud – private, public or hybrid – and ensure the rapid protection and recovery of the mission-critical data running on containers in edge, core and multi-cloud environments.2) Dell Technologies is the only vendor with a full spectrum of data protection solutionsSupporting full business service protection from edge to core to cloud, requires solutions that entail backup and recovery as well as disaster recovery and orchestration. Dell Technologies has leading products in both spaces that will ultimately be fully integrated into PowerProtect Data Manager.A single product will provide a full continuum of data protection capabilities with continuous data protection, to deliver extremely robust recovery point and recovery time objectives, with automated backup and recovery, for the protection, compliance and security of mission-critical data assets across hybrid, multi-cloud environments. These capabilities will be further augmented through our Cloud DR offering, where the whole workload environment can be recreated in the cloud directly from backup copies.3) Intelligent protection and recovery Autonomous protection and recovery will free users from the day-to-day burdens of data protection management. It all starts by making the underlying hardware infrastructure self-managing. Dell Technologies delivers this capability today by leveraging AI/ML-based automation to proactively detect hardware-related issues and provide predictive maintenance and resource management on the Dell EMC PowerProtect DD appliance family.We plan to deliver increasingly higher levels of automation by using AI/ML to analyze data protection usage and policy patterns in order to better predict the required policies and SLAs for supporting workloads across edge, core and multi-cloud. This will be built on PowerProtect Central, a SaaS platform that collects and analyzes behavioral patterns across multi-cloud environments (while of course complying with all required privacy and security measures).4) Data management and securityCyber threats are becoming increasingly pervasive. Organizations of all sizes now report that they are regularly targeted with malware and ransomware attacks. Protecting data means more than performing daily backup operations, it also means safeguarding data from a broad range of cyber threats.Dell Technologies delivers solutions that are integrating data protection (backup) with security into a more holistic approach for safeguarding data. PowerProtect Cyber Recovery integrates data protection storage with air-gapped data protection to prevent malicious deletion of backup copies, as well as malware detection mechanisms to ensure backup copies are clean and ready for recovery. Additional enhancements are planned through the collaboration of Dell EMC with VMware, SecureWorks and RSA.Proven and Modern Data ProtectionAs we enter the data decade, we are increasingly mindful of the pivotal role data will play in opening new frontiers in advancing human progress. From making affordable, quality health care available to billions of people globally, to delivering breakthrough advancements in eco-friendly, sustainable food production, to helping illuminate the minds of underprivileged youth across every corner of the globe – it all starts with data. That is why we do what we do. Our mission is connected to safeguarding the critical data assets that will make these aspirations, and many more like it, a reality in the coming years.We are tremendously excited, energized and humbled to be the industry leader delivering today’s proven data protection solutions, while developing the modern data protection capabilities organizations need so that our customers can focus on what they do best.
“We were extremely reluctant to make this change,” said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.“It is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste. Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.“It falls on the board to make the difficult decisions – this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff – but we do so in the club’s best interests.”Pochettino’s assistant Jesus Perez, and coaches Miguel d’Agostino and Antoni Jimenez have also left the club.Tottenham said in a statement that they would provide an update on new coaching staff “in due course”.Pochettino guided Tottenham to the League Cup final in his first full season while two third-placed finishes sandwiched a runners-up spot in the Premier League in 2017.As well as leading Spurs to a runners-up finish in last season’s Champions League he also led them to fourth in the league.He also had to contend with playing home games at Wembley for 18 months while the club’s new ground was built and his impressive results despite this led to links with Real Madrid and Manchester United.However, Spurs have failed to build on the promise of recent seasons this term. As well as their disappointing league form, they were knocked out of the League Cup by League Two side Colchester and hammered 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.“Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history,” added Levy.“I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us. I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed. They will always be welcome here.“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Tottenham have sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino after five years in charge of the Premier League club.The former Southampton boss, 47, was appointed in May 2014 and led the club to the Champions League final last season, where they lost to Liverpool.But Spurs have made a disappointing start to the current campaign and are 14th in the Premier League.
