In September, we announced that Commvault had joined Cisco’s SolutionsPlus program, and promised to strengthen our relationship with the introduction of innovative new data and protection solutions.

Today we are delivering on that promise, with the launch of ScaleProtect™ with Cisco UCS. Simply put, it is Commvault Data Protection and Commvault HyperScaleTM Software running on the Cisco UCS® infrastructure. ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS combines Commvault’s recently released Validated Reference Design Architecture for Commvault HyperScale Software with Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS).

With the availability of this solution, enterprises can now easily eliminate the ‘proprietary’ appliances and other expensive, siloed solutions that are unable to scale or provide the visibility & agility needed to manage today’s data challenges. Instead, they can deploy an integrated solution from Commvault and Cisco that is simple, elastic and resilient – able to deliver the cloud-like scalability, economics and data visibility needed to drive digital transformation initiatives that improve business outcomes.

Managing and protecting secondary data, which represents approximately 60% of enterprises’ total data, is becoming increasingly complex – largely due to a phenomenal growth in applications, volume of data produced, cybersecurity threats and data privacy regulations such as GDPR.

ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS not only meets but exceeds these requirements and delivers various benefits including:

  • Agility, resiliency and availability for on-premises data and applications
  • Setup, management and upgrade simplicity
  • Commvault Data Platform’s high availability and disaster recovery capabilities, including simply powerful automation, orchestration and self-service
  • Powerful new scale-out infrastructure combined with data management and protection, enabling systems consolidation and elimination of point-product solution silos

Moreover, since Commvault is a member of Cisco’s SolutionsPlus program, it is easy for customers around the world to purchase and deploy ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS, as it is available on the Cisco Global Price List. 

“We are glad to see that Commvault’s powerful scale-out data protection software for the enterprise is now available as a Cisco SKU through ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS,” said Scott Miller, Sr. Director of Data Centre, World Wide Technology. “Today’s launch extends on Commvault’s successful relationship with Cisco to help customers easily protect, manage and optimize data on Cisco solutions such as Cisco UCS, Cisco Hyperflex, and FlashStack. We look forward to bringing this new uniquely bundled solution to market as a game-changing alternative to existing scale-out solutions that have failed to deliver on expectations.”
