Disaster recovery isn’t about if, but when

Whether you're hit by a natural disaster, hardware failure, data breach, or ransomware attack, you need to recover your data quickly and painlessly.

Disaster Recovery
Understanding recovery readiness in a not so ready world

Disasters can happen to anyone, but being ready depends on you

As the importance and value of data grows, being ready to protect and recover that data is more vital than ever. Whether you’re hit by a natural disaster, hardware failure, human error, data breach, or ransomware attack your data is under constant threat.

You need your data back quickly, and with as little disruption as possible. Your disaster recovery readiness needs:

Flexibility

Recover data, applications and virtual machines from any platform

Efficiency

Recovery point and time objectives (RPOs/RTOs) easily aligned with SLAs

Versatility

Protect data against all kinds of threats

Simplicity

Fast recovery through a single, scalable solution

Ready for IT disaster recovery. Ready to secure data.

Of course, with true readiness, you should be able to see that your backup infrastructure is secure!  Our simple, comprehensive disaster-recovery-readiness dashboard shows you where things are going well, and where you may need more work. This capability makes it easy to quickly address issues affecting recoverability. 

  • Support multiple data types, applications, and hypervisors
  • Support multiple Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) to meet Service-Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Deploy DR solutions to-and-from on-premises, and across public and private clouds
  • SLA-based protection plans for backup and DR together
  • Coordinate DR functions: failover, failback, testing, and reverse protection
  • Reduce threat exposure through system control, site, storage layer, and network strengthening

  • £ 1 million deduplication savings
  • 96% backup success rate
  • 6 hour full backup window – decreased from 4 weeks

Simplification, automatic, rapid disaster recovery services for enterprise data protection environments

Reduce your disaster recovery costs

Build multiple DR tiers to more efficiently meet your SLAs. Allocate your data based on business value, RPO/RTO requirements and support offsite backups.

  • Better manage costs of disaster recovery backup infrastructure
  • One solution instead of multiple point-technologies
  • Easily manage recovery tiers and off-site backups

Recover your data wherever it is

Making sure your mission-critical data is accounted for and accessible is crucial to disaster recovery. With Commvault, you can recover on-premises, in the cloud, from the cloud or between clouds.

  • Recover data and state inside hypervisors
  • Business continuity – full recovery without rebuilding and populating data
  • Orchestrated DR functions: failover, failback, testing, and reverse protection

Avoid vendor lock-in and typical cost drivers

Disaster recovery to a certain facility, hardware or hypervisor can drive up costs. You need the flexibility to recover workloads from on-premises or multiple cloud locations.  Commvault can help you save disaster recovery costs by providing automatic format conversion across platforms, disaster recovery task automation, and more.

  • Replicate and recover to both like and unlike hypervisors
  • Automate common disaster recovery tasks
  • Monitor and manage your overall recovery readiness

Provision production data for secondary use cases

With access to a secured, protected copy of your production data, Commvault® software can be leveraged to manage the provisioning, migration, cloning, and presentation of data sets for secondary uses such as:

  • Dev/Test operations
  • Quality assurance
  • Security testing
  • Disaster recovery

Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery

Automate cloud disaster recovery for today’s business demands

Cloud disaster recovery needs speed, agility and granularity. Different cloud workloads have different demands. It can seem nearly impossible to align all of them at times.

Commvault software helps you build custom recovery workflows to reduce manual effort and minimize human error.

  • Quickly spin up cloud storage, data and policies
  • Choose the type, source, target and location of your data
  • Determine the best route for continuity – full recovery or rebuilding and repopulating data
  • Recover both the state and data inside hypervisors
  • Meet multiple, different RTO and RPO targets

Prepare for today’s cloud environment – and tomorrow’s demands. Commvault supports more than 40 cloud storage options and multiple hypervisors.

Whether your challenge is a natural disaster, ransomware attack or human error, Commvault gives you the power and control to handle disaster recovery situations.

Disaster recovery in the cloud

Recover cloud-native workloads within their cloud, across cloud regions or from another cloud. Cloud-first organizations need the choice for rapid recovery within the cloud.

Disaster recovery to the cloud

Launch cloud capacity when you have a disaster recovery event, then turn off the cloud use when you are recovered. Failover operations to the cloud for long-term business continuity.

cloud migration

Migrate data to, from and between clouds with ease. Native integration with clouds and data encryption means fast, secure migration for your applications, databases, virtual machines and large datasets.

Disaster recovery from the cloud

Initiate cloud-based backups for on-premises recovery requirements. Flexibly use cloud-based workloads for granular recovery or large-scale availability needs.

Disaster recovery across clouds

Use cloud-based workloads, regardless of which cloud – or clouds – store the data. Be prepared with recovery across cloud providers or between multiple cloud geographic regions.

Cloud disaster recovery
for today’s business

  • Automate disaster recovery workflows with tested cloud management policies
  • Set and manage multiple RTO and RPOs tiers – distinct for different application groups – saving effort and budget automate disaster recovery workflows with tested cloud management policies
  • Understand current status with built-in alerting, monitoring and reporting
  • Initiate either a planned or unplanned failover while prioritizing what is most important to the business – recovery time or data types
  • Efficiently replicate data, saving time and bandwidth, especially with cloud-to-cloud disaster recovery

Harnessing Multi Cloud Disaster Recovery

Harnessing the power of multi cloud disaster recovery is essential in order to meet increasingly strict data compliance rules, combat the prevalence of ransomware and maintain business continuity.

Reduce costs and accelerate recovery with cloud disaster recovery

Save time, budget and efficiency by managing your multi cloud disaster recovery strategy with Commvault. Align your organization’s unique data needs with your own custom business-continuity plan.

  • Speed up work by starting in your public cloud interface. Native integration means backup and recovery jobs can run from the cloud interface or your Commvault Command Center™ .
  • Choose your fastest continuity route – full recovery or rebuild and populate data.
  • Reduce costs with power management. Automatically power on Commvault cloud-hosted agents for backup, restore or pruning, and gracefully power down resources when the job is complete.

Best of all, reduce the cost of maintaining multiple point technologies. Consolidate and streamline your on-premises and cloud-based disaster recovery strategy with a single point of management.

University of Canberra automates disaster recovery, saves time and cost, improves data availability with Commvault and AWS.
