At Cisco Live Melbourne this week, Commvault announced the availability of Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for the protection of Virtual Server Infrastructure (VSI) running on FlashStack with Commvault.
Commvault provides an end-to-end data management solution for FlashStack. FlashStack is a flexible, all flash-converged infrastructure solution with a hardware foundation that includes Cisco UCS Servers, Nexus and MDS fibre channel switches and PureStorage FlashArrays. Customers use FlashStack to run mission critical workloads like Oracle, SAP, Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange.
With this proven and optimized solution, Commvault, Cisco and Pure deliver enterprises a high performance, scalable and easy-to-use solution for economically protecting mission critical workloads regardless of where the data resides – on-premises, hybrid and/or on public cloud infrastructure.
This partnership trifecta further extends the Reference Architectures for Cisco’s UCS infrastructure and support for Cisco’s S-Series and Hyperflex that we announced last year. Overall, our joint solutions help enterprises:
- Reduce risk: Together with Cisco, we provide the industry’s most powerful, and complete, data management solution. Our customers can roll out the solution with confidence and peace of mind that it works; their data is fully protected, too. This means customers can significantly reduce the risk of downtime and data loss, accelerate disaster recovery and ensure business continuity.
- Accelerate time-to-value and reduce costs: Our pre-engineered, tested and optimized converged infrastructure solutions enable our customers to significantly reduce the time it takes to design, implement and operate these solutions. This translates to significant productivity gains and cost savings.
- Increase agility: Our simplified solutions can scale from terabytes to petabytes for a comprehensive set of data protection use cases, including Application Modernization, Infrastructure Modernization and Dev/Test.
At Commvault and Cisco we’re dedicated to delivering enterprises the technology they need to realize their strategic business goals. This dedication runs through the entire fabric of our partnership with Cisco – one powered by joint innovation, a common partner eco-system, no competitive overlap with product lines, and a commitment to providing a seamless customer experience with our data management solutions.
As a Preferred Solution Partner within the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, we are proud of today’s announcement and look forward to continuing to provide end-to-end data management solutions that deliver compelling business outcomes for our joint customers.
We’re thrilled that Commvault and Cisco are working together to help enterprises reduce risk, lower costs, accelerate time-to-value and increase agility.
