Cloud data migration that’s secure, streamlined and fast

With Commvault, you can align your data storage needs and cloud data migration – seamlessly. Easily move production data and backups to the cloud.

Choose to use cloud as a secondary or tertiary storage target for data archiving. Automatically migrate cloud data to lower cost storage tiers in alignment with your SLAs.

That’s how cloud data migration should be ‐ and is when you use Commvault data migration software. When business needs change, easily move workloads to the cloud or clouds of your choice.

With comprehensive cloud data management it’s easy to meet business demands and efficiently manage data migration:

  • To the cloud
  • Across multiple clouds
  • Across cloud geographic regions
  • Back to the on-premises data center

Easy, integrated cloud data migration from Metallic

Data migration software that keeps cloud data secure

Manage cloud disaster recovery and protect against ransomware. With cloud-based disaster recovery, you have the flexibility to meet SLAs, recover data across geographies, and secure data in immutable cloud storage. Commvault helps you be ready for data emergencies.

A strong cloud data protection strategy includes plans for cloud data migration, cloud disaster recovery and ongoing cloud data management.

“You can move all the workloads seamlessly from on-premises to cloud or cloud to cloud. Commvault has great functionalities of how to use your protected data in an efficient way.”
– Mohammed Azam, IT infrastructure head, Emirates Steel

Compare Commvault to vendor cloud migration tools

Business demands may require you to move applications, databases and workloads from one cloud service to another. Today’s situation may change tomorrow.

When you use separate tools for each of your clouds, plus other tools for your on-premises data, you’re duplicating effort, introducing discrepancies and spending more time than you should.

Commvault gives you incredible flexibility to migrate cloud data – with unmatched hypervisor flexibility.

Only a professional cloud data migration solution lets you easily and securely transport data between clouds. If you’re relying on a cloud vendor migration tool, you may have challenges:

How much can you save?

Streamline with Commvault data migration

Best of all, automation and orchestration further streamline Commvault data migration processes: you can define process flows once, then apply them consistently across data projects. Automation saves you time and effort on your cloud journey.

  • Built-in compression shrinks the data as much as possible
  • Built-in deduplication reduces the volume of data moving to the cloud
  • Encryption protects workloads in flight.
  • Integrated reporting shows success, failure and job restart
  • Easily confirm your workload migration is successful and secure

“We can now move cloud workloads more easily between providers, which means we can take advantage of the best prices. This has reduced the cost per cloud server by around 20%.”

– Michael Catrini, Assistant Vice President, UConn Health1

Scalable cloud data migration

Smoothly manage even large data volumes moving to the cloud – Commvault has seamless integration into tools like Azure Data Box and AWS Snowball. There is no need for additional third-party appliances for large data migrations.

Commvault software seamlessly integrates with large scale data migration tools, including:

Microsoft Azure Data Box family

Data Box, Data Box Disk, Data Box Heavy, Data Box Edge, Data Box Gateway

AWS Snowball

AWS Snowball, AWS Snowball Edge, AWS Snowmobile

Google Transfer Appliance

Commvault integration into these public cloud, large scale data migration tools provides more secure data migration than competitors who require additional third-party appliances for large data migrations.

“We uploaded, copied, and synced our data management with Commvault using Azure Data Box in a third of the time it would have taken without it — and we avoided risks to network performance or sensitive information. “

– Brian Blum, Senior Systems Administrator University of Central Florida2

Flexible virtual machine data migration to hypervisors and clouds

Use the hypervisors and clouds you need, where you need them. In one click, Commvault can migrate virtual machines to the cloud of your choice.

Moving from one cloud or hypervisor to another involves data conversion. You need simplicity. Enterprise data protection should make it easy to support a wide range of hypervisor conversions.

Hypervisor flexibility is included with Commvault. Move VMware workloads to Azure, AWS workloads to VMware, Hyper-V to AWS — Commvault eliminates the challenge of hypervisor compatibility.

No other vendor offers the hypervisor flexibility that Commvault includes at no extra charge.

Choose virtual machine migration to the cloud as a one-time operation or automate regular cloud copy creation for common use cases such as disaster recovery and dev/test operations.

97-99% deduplication ratio helps Parsons Technology save on cloud storage costs. Commvault has simplified cloud data migration for this technology provider.
