The price of Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite starts at $5,000 per terabyte for up to five terabytes of front-end capacity.

Through volume discount pricing, price reaches $2,250 per terabyte for users protecting more than 250 terabytes of data.

The Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite will be available worldwide in the third quarter of 2014.

Brett Roscoe, executive director of product development, data protection, Dell Software, said: “Dell Backup & Disaster Recovery Suite gives customers the flexibility to leverage our entire portfolio of backup software solutions by way of a single, capacity-based licensing model.”
