Snapshot File Backup

Information is the lifeblood of the enterprise, captured, shared and quantified in dozens of different file types. Protecting and gaining control of all that unstructured data is essential — and a challenge.

With incremental forever backups and smart deduplication to ensure endless scalability while keeping your archives lean, Commvault brings your unstructured data into view. We make it fast and easy to find, recover and restore lost or damaged files at any level of granularity, from single files to whole file systems.

Rapid, granular recovery for snapshots

Commvault’s integrated snapshot management indexes your snapshots to make them searchable, making file recovery a surgical process, eliminating time wasted recovering files you simply didn’t need in the first place.

Easy to find, easy to recover

Self-service access to protected data via a mobile app or web portal lets the users you support quickly and easily restore lost or corrupted files on their own — while you focus on the bigger, more-strategic tasks.
