In this version of the Datrium DVX we are demonstrating archival of snapshots from the on-prem DVX to AWS S3 without ever leaving vCenter UI. This presents our customers with the ability to protect their infrastructure data both in the on-prem DVX cloud and off site in AWS DVX cloud repositories.
The solution uses forever-incremental snapshots, compression, and global deduplication end-to-end, which saves both storage and network costs – especially relevant in the cloud where network egress costs can add up quickly.
Datrium will manage the solution on AWS end-to-end, as a service. An on-prem DVX can store VM or file snapshots in AWS S3 for long-term archival, and easily retrieve them as needed.
