How Commvault HyperScale X makes implementing an immutable architecture easy  

By Mariana Marques 

In this blog, you’ll learn how HyperScale X makes implementing an immutable architecture easy as an integrated appliance or reference design for an all-in-one solution. With cyber-attacks increasing it delivers comprehensive data management across workloads to protect your data through 5 security layers. Commvault offers a hybrid of controls that work together to harden data against ransomware, cyber threats, and bad actors. 

What is an Immutable Architecture and how do organization benefit?   

Immutability is defined as the ability of any data to be maintained in a non-fungible state for a specific duration of time. Data immutability can be attained via various methods working in conjunction with each other.  An immutable architecture is a model in which no updates, security patches, or configuration changes happen “in-place” on production systems.  If any change is needed, a new version of the architecture is built and deployed into production.  

Organizations need an immutable architecture to ensure their data is safe and secure and more importantly, ready whenever they need to restore it. Immutability is a proven technique used to reduce cyber-attacks on backup data and ensure that backup copies aren’t changed in any way. 

Commvault HyperScaleTM X for Greater Immutability  

Commvault’s HyperScaleTM X makes it easier to implement an immutable architecture as an integrated appliance or reference design for an all-in-one solution. It delivers comprehensive data management for all workloads from a single, extensible platform. Commvault employs a multi-layered approach to protect against various threat vectors and ensure data is safe. Commvault’s immutable architecture consists of 5 layers which are:   

  • Storage I/O Controls   
  • Zero Trust AAA Controls   
  • Infrastructure Hardening   
  • Zero trust isolation and air gap  
  • Data Validation  

Commvault HyperScale™ X  leverages the entire Commvault software portfolio providing access to all the features, functions, and industry-leading integrations with applications, databases, public cloud environments, hypervisors, operating systems, containers and NextGen workloads. Wherever your data resides, you have the ability to view it, use it, and confidently protect it. Commvault HyperScaleTM X accelerates hybrid cloud adoption with an integrated solution built on a deeply layered system of controls that work together to harden data against ransomware, cyber threats, and bad actors.
