Posted 20 October 2015 12:29 PM by Ken

Tinton Falls, NJ – October 20, 2015 - Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, today announced new innovations in the Commvault Data Platform to extend snapshot management capabilities to include the Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP). Through the innovation of Commvault’s new software, Commvault and Nutanix are able to help joint enterprise customers address the evolving challenges of managing data and information in highly changing, fast-paced global business environments.

While snapshots have long been recognized as the fastest and most efficient way to recover data, virtual machines and applications, the Commvault Data Platform integration with Nutanix XCP helps accelerate the use of snapshots in the hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) stack. As a result, the complex lifecycle of snapshot management is now integrated into one seamless framework within the new solution, streamlining service delivery to the business for improved disaster recovery and data access. These new innovations in the Commvault Data Platform address increasing global customer demand for 100 percent software-based HCI to improve overall efficiencies and scale with current hypervisor environments.

Now more than ever, customers are looking for partners to provide efficient and scalable services for data availability and recovery beyond what has been offered through more traditional IT infrastructures. By integrating the speed and convenience of Nutanix-based snapshots, with the automated index and search capabilities of Commvault, enterprise customers can ensure rapid recovery that meets business needs and ongoing continuity.

“In Government, we need a lot of flexibility to adapt to change,” said Jon Walton, CIO of County of San Mateo, California. “The business requirements are fluid, procurement and funding timelines are long, and we want the taxpayer to feel as though their money’s being well spent. Commvault’s broad integration with key infrastructurepartners like VMware, Microsoft, and Nutanix gives us the agility we need to leverage interrelated technologies, maximize our investmentand provide a cost-effective solution to our end users while achieving the business outcomes we want.”

“Commvault delivers industry-recognized data protection and recovery solutions for Nutanix customers," said Venugopal Pai, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Business Development at Nutanix. "Our relationship with Commvault is another clear example of our track record of working with strategic partners to deliver innovative solutions that solve customer problems to the market.”

“Our next generation software and platform provides Commvault customers using Nutanix a completely orchestrated solution to snapshot and data management complemented with the partner’s solution,” said Don Foster, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing and Technical Alliances, Commvault. “Further, IntelliSnap technology automates the creation of application-aware hardware snapshot copies across Nutanix environments and catalogs snapshot data to simplify the recovery of individual files, databases or virtual machines without the need for a collection of scripts and disparate snapshot, backup, and recovery tools. Ultimately, this provides customers with fast access and recovery, not just for data loss events, but also to drive development, test, and analytical queries.”
