True single-platform data protection enables rapid deployment of enterprise ready HyperFlex 4.0, accelerating digital transformation of enterprise applications

Cisco’s announcement Tuesday of the HyperFlex 4.0 release and the significantly enhanced capabilities for hyperconverged at the edge with HyperFlex Anywhere and Cisco Intersight provides enterprises with the accelerated ability to utilize Cisco’s industry-leading hyperconverged architecture across all data repositories - including the data center, remote locations, all distributed data infrastructure and cloud.

Commvault’s enhanced integration with Cisco HyperFlex™ enables customers to leverage these new capabilities with performance optimized for Cisco HyperFlex 4.0 and geared toward mission critical enterprise applications. This enhanced integration includes snap assisted backups using Commvault IntelliSnap® technology, ensuring that critical workloads are easily recoverable when needed and reducing the time for enterprise recovery operations. This protection for Cisco HyperFlex™ is available as ScaleProtect™ with Cisco UCS®, which combines Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery and Commvault HyperScale™ software integrated with Cisco UCS (Unified Compute System).

ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS provides confidence in three key areas, making sure data within Cisco HyperFlex 4.0 is protected and recoverable:

  • Coverage: Commvault is optimized for the demands of Cisco HyperFlex™ providing support for all file systems, enterprise applications and virtual platforms with policy-based data protection - now with AI-optimized backups for improved performance.
  • Flexibility: Commvault provides the control to migrate data to where it’s needed, when it’s needed - achieving complete enterprise workload protection. Integration with 60-plus cloud providers enables cloud flexibility, and ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS enables cloud economics with on-premises workloads. Enterprises avoid cloud lock-in and gain maximum visibility into their data, along with complete workload portability (often avoiding hefty cloud provider egress charges).
  • Agility: With scale-out and scale up options, customers gain the agility the enterprise demands while leveraging the combined power of Cisco HyperFlex and ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS.  When other data protection solutions fail to scale at the enterprise level, Commvault delivers with a single platform, eliminating data silos and point solutions, thereby decreasing cost, risk and complexity.

Leverage the advantages of Cisco HyperFlex 4.0 and extend your hyperconverged infrastructure throughout your enterprise with HyperFlex Anywhere. Be sure to evaluate Cisco HyperFlex with Commvault data protection and data management.  It’s designed to protect your complete enterprise of data - wherever your data lives.
