Synopsis

Purpose: Reduce on premise storage, off-site tape footprint, associated maintenance and costs with utility-based cloud storage from Azure and intelligent data lifecycle management from Commvault.

Challenge: Exponential data growth in the enterprise has forced IT departments to become wiser to what they store and to choose cost-effective target storage. Azure cloud storage provides quality, resilient storage at unbeatable prices; however, moving and managing data in a dependable, secure manner to these resources eludes most organizations, who therefore fail to realize the benefits.

Solution: Commvault’s information management software, with deep Azure integration and mature, built-in cloud storage connector technology, allows organizations to dramatically reduce storage costs and maintain off-site data protection by intelligently reducing data volumes and leveraging cloud storage without the need for storage appliance gateways and the inherent vendor lock-in.
