Even though dedupe is now considered table stakes for any backup software – and every major product has it – there are still significant differences in how deduplication is implemented by vendors. Dedupe may feel like old news, but CommVault continues to innovate in the dedupe space, bringing it into new and vital areas like the Simpana ContentStore.
As for Disaster Recovery, that’s the data protection blogger’s cornucopia, overflowing with all kinds of tasty things. Just about everything Simpana software does connects to some aspect of Disaster Recovery, meaning we'll be able to stick our bloggy fingers into many different technology pies! One thing for sure is that DR as a subject is much wider than recovering from a site-level disaster. Yes, that’s vital and any responsible organization will prepare for it. But DR can happen at the level of a single server or application. If your principal transactional database gets corrupted, well that’s a disaster by any definition. If an executive loses a laptop on a business trip, that’s a horse of a different color but potentially just as devastating if key information can’t be recovered.
The fun part at CommVault is that our software covers all these scenarios and many more, meaning our blog cup runneth over already.
So check back here often, it’s going to be a fun ride.
