Freedom of Choice for Data Protection With Commvault HyperScale™ Technology

Posted 10/17/2017 by Phil Wandrei

What do you do when you want to move all of your applications to the cloud but not all of them can be migrated? Maybe you have a few older or in-house developed applications that were never designed for the cloud. Or due to regulatory or compliance reasons the application and data must reside on-premises. How do you gain the predictable economics and performance with seamless scalability of the cloud if the application is on-premises? 

Today, Commvault announced Commvault HyperScaleTM Technology to address these challenges.   

Commvault is enhancing its platform with Commvault HyperScale Technology, giving customers a level of performance and scale for backup, recovery and archive that parallels the performance and scale found in many cloud environments. By delivering this on a scale-out infrastructure, Commvault enables customers to leverage new solutions specifically tailored for data management and protection, as well as secondary storage. Through the Commvault® Data Platform and Commvault HyperScale™ Technology, we are helping free organizations from vendor lock-in, drive lower cost than legacy approaches, provide greater agility and flexibility, and enable IT to become scalable and better performing.

By building these services on a scale-out infrastructure and leveraging Commvault capabilities, organizations gain:

  • Agility, resiliency and availability to on-premises data and applications
  • Greater end-user efficiency with automation and self-service capabilities
  • Improved hardware utilization and optimized costs from general-purpose hardware
  • Seamless storage scalability with predictable performance without requiring forklift upgrades
  • Better, more secure data management, utilization and movement by eliminating point product and data silos
