  • Streamlined installation process that speeds deployment and time to first backup
  • All centrally managed from a single place wherever your data lives via the Commvault Command Center (see below)

Optimized scalability

  • Incremental storage growth up to 5PB of capacity within a single deduplicated storage pool
  • Cost-optimized cloud data mobility to move data to, from, within, and between clouds, including Metallic® Recovery Reserve™ Cloud Storage
  • Data reuse via copy data management that provides instant recovery of VMs, DR testing of replicas directly from the hardware, and live production copies for DevOps and testing

Trusted security and resiliency

  • Ransomware protection with intelligent monitoring that detects anomalies and sends alerts, plus multiple layers of immutability that protect data against unwanted changes
  • Built-in resiliency that increases as you add nodes, including the ability to support multiple hardware failures
  • High performance backup and recovery with automatic load balancing and improved RPO/RTO

Added metadata storage for cloud copies

Enhanced immutability protects against ransomware attacks

It’s not a matter of if you will be hit by ransomware but when. Commvault’s multiple layers of immutability across the software, OS, and file system help protect against ransomware attacks by preventing protected data from being accidentally or maliciously encrypted, modified, or deleted.

Software (WORM storage policies)

  • Attempt: Backup admin tries to accidentally delete backup job, policy, or library
  • Action: Denied by WORM (write once, read many) storage policy

Operating System (Access controls)

  • Attempt: Authorized user tries to encrypt, move, or delete files or reformat a disk
  • Action: OS blocks users and/or ransomware attacks through access controls

File System (Immutability at the storage layer)

  • Attempt: Authorized or malicious user tries to modify or encrypt protected backup data
  • Action: Immutable file system prevents backup data from being modified/encrypted

Commvault HyperScale X for Metallic

Metallic delivers Commvault’s intelligent data services via software-as-a-service (SaaS). Now, customers looking for the benefits of HyperScale X have the option to deploy it as a cloud-delivered backup service.

HyperScale X for Metallic enables the Commvault-branded appliance or a validated reference design to operate as an on-premises backup target for hybrid cloud workloads protected by Metallic.

By putting compute and storage resources at the edge closer to the backup source, you get a local air-gapped copy that enables faster recovery and lower costs, while still enjoying the simplicity and flexibility benefits of a SaaS-delivered backup solution.

Whether you deploy HyperScale X as edge storage as part of a cloud-led SaaS solution or as traditional on-prem storage for data center workloads, you get a unified customer experience through Commvault Command Center.

Commvault Command Center

A single view to manage your entire data environment

Commvault Command Center™ offers a single dashboard to manage your entire data environment. Identify data you want to protect, monitor backups and restores, and easily access analytics. Default configurations and streamlined procedures save time and role-based access enables self-service capabilities, reducing the load on your IT staff.

A Commvault HyperScale X dashboard further simplifies management by monitoring all HyperScale-specific storage. Quickly and easily review the performance and health of hardware components and receive notifications if/when SLAs are not being met.
