Data Management as a Service, or DMaaS for short, is portfolio of as a service offerings used by organizations seeking easy access to multiple data management capabilities, such as backup and recovery, disaster recovery (DR), archiving, file and object services, dev/test provisioning, data governance, security, and analytics—all provided as a comprehensive, integrated set of offerings through a software as a service (SaaS) model.
DMaaS simplifies the way organizations manage and protect all enterprise data, no matter where it resides—in the cloud or on-premises—or how it is formatted, structured or unstructured.
DMaaS relieves businesses of the burden of buying or managing software and the infrastructure needed to support enterprise data management capabilities.
Businesses pay for the service using a pay-per-use model that doesn’t require any capital expenses (CapEx) for equipment or software, or related operational expenses (OpEx) for managing and maintaining those investments.
Both business and IT teams benefit from Data Management as a Service because the portfolio leverages capacity-based pricing, provides unified data management for all types of workloads through a single, global UI and improves productivity by freeing up IT staff to gain better insights and develop new apps.
These are some of the key advantages to organizations:
Continuously growing volumes of data make it difficult for organizations to store, manage, and protect their most important asset. As businesses adopt cloud models—shifting internal applications to infrastructure as a service (IaaS), creating cloud-native apps using platform as a service (PaaS), and subscribing to specific business functionality with software as a service (SaaS) capabilities, a fundamental transformation of their data architecture is occurring.
Data that used to be kept centrally in on-prem data centers is now fragmented through any combination of local data capacity (including data centers, branch offices, campuses, desktops, laptops, and even mobile devices) and cloud data capacity (including multiple IaaS, cloud-native apps, SaaS, and PaaS services). And that mass data fragmentation leads to less visibility into all of your data.
That’s why organizations need a simple strategy for managing all of their data. The traditional approach of replicating data across redundant storage units in different locations lacked visibility and a centralized way to secure or manage it. Costly and inefficient, this approach is clearly not sustainable in today’s fast-paced business environment.
Data management teams work with on-prem and DMaaS solutions to ensure their organizations gain the maximum insights and value from all of the data they collect, protect, and keep.
Data retention and protection in various forms including backup and recovery, file and object services, disaster recovery, data archival, long-term retention are among the primary responsibilities of a data management team.
