Commvault Backup and Recovery Now Supports Microsoft Azure Stack HCI

Commvault is built for flexibility: it easily manages and backs up your VMs and restores them to the same host, Azure public cloud, or other locations.

We are all looking for that solution that saves us time, improves our efficiency, modernizes our efforts, and saves us money. For those companies planning to consolidate virtualized workloads, replace legacy  hardware, and integrate with Microsoft Azure for a complete hybrid cloud experience, Azure Stack HCI is for you. By including Commvault Data Management, Backup, and Recovery into their plans, organizations can ensure success.

If you have just configured a hyper-converged cluster and used Storage Spaces Direct to allocate flexible storage to your applications, your first questions might be how to ensure those virtual machines and data are protected from a failure, outage, or ransomware. Commvault is built for flexibility: it easily manages and backs up your VMs and restores them to the same host, Azure public cloud, or other locations.

Here are a few key features available with Commvault support for Azure Stack HCI:

  • Backup application-aware virtual machines
  • Easily restore guest files and folders, full virtual machines, or virtual machine disks
  • Convert VMs from a different virtualization platform like VMware with image level conversion to Azure Stack HCI
  • Replicate VMs for disaster recovery with orchestration for failovers
  • Global deduplication, compression, and encryption

Microsoft has been putting a lot of focus on keeping the management of its services consistent by allowing administrators to use the Azure Portal as well as Windows Admin Center. Commvault is also providing this same consistency across its solution offerings by providing a single-pane-of-glass interface with the Commvault Command Center. Whether you are managing a group of virtual machines in the cloud, an Azure Stack Hub on-premises, or an Azure Stack HCI cluster—or any combination—it can all be protected and reported on from a single interface.

In my opinion, “Commvault and Microsoft have a strong collaboration, delivering advanced data protection capabilities through Commvault Backup & Recovery for customers on a wide range of solutions. Our Backup & Recovery solutions provide the intelligent data management platform enterprises deploy to confidently move, manage, and use critical applications and data to any cloud infrastructure, whether it’s public, private, or hybrid. With the release of Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, Commvault is excited to offer a flexible and cost-effective solution to meet customer demand.”

According to Talal Alqinawi, Senior Director Azure Marketing, Microsoft Corp., “Microsoft Azure Stack HCI is delivered as an Azure service and provides consistent hybrid cloud experience for management, applications, and IT operations.”

If you are considering a hardware refresh in your environment and want to future proof your investments with Azure Stack HCI and Azure hybrid capabilities, rest assured that Commvault will provide a tight integration with the latest data protection and data management features you can depend on. As your environment grows, so does Commvault, with its innovative scalability.
