Posted 02/20/2019 by Phil Wandrei

You don’t purchase “one-size-fits-all” clothes, so why do you settle for a one-size-fits-all data protection solution?

Choosing the correct data protection solution and having it fit should be easy. With Commvault’s HyperScale™ solutions you do not have to settle for a one-size-fits-all data protection solution as it provides a range of sizes to meet your business needs and preferences.

Choosing the right HyperScale solution

You may implement Commvault HyperScale solutions starting at 29TB usable and scale to petabytes. The broad range of offerings enable you to choose the size and hardware platform to best meet your needs:
