This document provides a solutions guide for Azure Backup of Dell EMC XC Xpress appliances using Azure Cloud Services from Dell EMC.   

Azure Backup is a feature of Azure Cloud Services from Dell EMC. You can store multiple copies of on-premises data such as files, folders, and workloads across multiple Azure datacenters/regions and the data can be encrypted while in transit and at rest.

The Dell EMC XC Xpress cluster brings the power and simplicity of the XC Series to smaller IT organizations with a simple, reliable, and affordable “Out-of-the-box” infrastructure solution. This solution combines industry-proven Dell PowerEdge servers and Nutanix software from each appliance into a shared-everything model for simplified operations, improved agility, and greater flexibility.  

Dell EMC and Nutanix together deliver simple, cost effective solutions for the SMB and midmarket workloads yet includes enterprise level features such as deduplication, compression, cloning and tiering. The simplification comes from having the hardware and software installed at the factory on an appliance that is ready to deploy out of the box and optimized for a smaller environment.
