--Commvault seamless integration with SAP HANA® database enables Hitachi, Ltd to back up and move on-premises customers to their cloud service more efficiently--
--Hitachi, Ltd is able to scale cloud data protection needs with Commvault backup solutions for faster, more granular restores of data--
Tinton Falls, N.J. and Singapore – April 10, 2018 – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced that Hitachi, Ltd has selected Commvault as one of its backup solutions for Hitachi’s SAP HANA Cloud Service in Japan. Commvault’s solutions enable Hitachi, Ltd to maximize data availability and strengthen data protection through a single, unified intelligent backup and management platform.
Hitachi’s SAP HANA Cloud Service is an industry-leading, fully-managed service that enables enterprises to migrate business-critical data systems on-premises to the cloud, with high reliability and scalability. Commvault’s seamless integration with SAP HANA enables Hitachi, Ltd to back up and recover all SAP data while delivering an effortless user experience.
Trends such as big data and higher cloud adoption will require businesses to pay more attention to data protection. Commvault brings several key advantages to Hitachi’s SAP HANA Cloud Service:
- Increased integration: Businesses may now back up their SAP HANA database through Commvault directly, rather than first obtaining a separate database backup by console. Commvault Data Platform also provides data deduplication of these backups, therefore decreasing their overall size.
- Unified platform: Commvault IntelliSnap has also been integrated tightly into Hitachi’s storage, allowing businesses to obtain a hardware snapshot that can further be stored, all from a single platform. With Commvault supporting Sybase and VMware databases, businesses have a unified user interface they can use to manage their backup requirements consistently.
- Scale as you grow: With licensing available in 1TB capacity units, customers who select Hitachi’s SAP HANA Cloud Service have the flexibility to select the capacity that fits their business needs and scale as their business needs change.
- Improved support: Customers who select Hitachi’s SAP HANA Cloud Service will have access to support from Hitachi, Ltd as well as Commvault’s engineering and customer support teams.
Takeshi Sone, General Manager, Solutions Business Promotion Department, IT Platform Products Management Division, of Hitachi, Ltd said: “By 2020, SAP HANA is expected to be widely used by enterprises. To support this trend, Hitachi, Ltd is expanding our SAP HANA infrastructure and strengthening our cloud service, empowering Japanese on-premise[s] SAP HANA users to move to the cloud. This shift will reduce day-to-day resource requirements for system setup through operation for SAP HANA implementation and improve application performance, minimize system downtime and drive greater business process automation and efficiency. The partnership Hitachi, Ltd has with Commvault allows us to meet the growing demands for cloud solutions and maintain quality customer satisfaction levels.”
