Understanding the architecture Child TopicsSystem overviewThis section describes the various features of Integrated Data Protection. System architecture and componentsIntegrated Data Protection products are extensions of the Converged System, built by Dell EMC in Dell EMC cabinets. Integrated Data Protection and Vscale ArchitectureIntegrated Data Protection can protect systems that are part of a Vscale Architecture. Planning for backup and recoveryData backup and recovery planning are critical elements of the comprehensive effort to deploy a Converged System. The use of traditional tape to back up and recover data in a Converged System is effective, but legacy methodology inhibits maximizing the potential of the Converged System. Advantages of Integrated Data Protection converged backup systemsThis section describes the advantages of using an Integrated Data Protection solution on converged backup systems. Converged backup systems connectivity overviewA converged backup system is a pre-integrated backup system, built and supported by Dell EMC, and containing a combination of Avamar or NetWorker or PowerProtect Data Manager, Data Domain, and Cisco switches.
