Dell EMC NetWorker has a long history in the data protection and recovery market through the different vendors that have owned the technology prior to its acquisition by EMC in 2003. Offered as backup and recovery software or as a virtual edition to create a virtual appliance, NetWorker supports protection of a wide range of source data to a variety of targets.

Centralizing data protection across different types of data and environments from large enterprises to small offices has always been the goal of NetWorker. Dell EMC extended capabilities to include the public cloud, as both a source and a target for NetWorker. Integration with Dell EMC Cloud Tier accelerates transfer to the cloud for long-term retention.
