Simpana Offers Increased Scalability, Performance and Support for Large Enterprise Physical and Virtual Environments

  • Organizations need solutions that deliver high-performance at scale and support heterogeneous operating environments and applications. CommVault Simpana software delivers the unparalleled advantages and benefits of a truly holistic approach to modern data protection. It is one product that contains individually licensable modules – all built on a single unifying code base and platform – to Analyze, Replicate, Protect, Archive, and Search data.
  • Leveraging the strengths of this unified platform, each module, deployed by itself or in combination with others, delivers unsurpassed feature-for-feature performance against alternative point-level solutions. And because modules are individually licensable, users have the flexibility to choose those that meet their current needs and activate additional modules as new needs emerge.
  • With a rapid-fire, persistent, hardware-based snapshot capability fully integrated, Simpana SnapProtect technology delivers the performance capability to protect the largest, most demanding virtual and physical server environments – and recover them in minutes. By creating hardware snapshot copies internal to the storage array, high speed recovery copies can be created with minimal impact on the production servers. In just a few minutes, hundreds of systems and their associated business applications can be protected.
  • Additionally, Simpana 9 dramatically reduces the complexity of managing and protecting sprawling VMs with advanced, automated discovery and more granular restore capabilities.
  • CommVault's single console offers unique integrated visibility into resource consumption and storage utilization for both virtual and physical environments resulting in simplified lifecycle management, protection and retention of data across all tiers.
