Distributed Storage

Existing customers can transition to migrating from Distributed Storage to Hyperscale X.

One storage solution for your environment

Infrastructure on your terms. That is Commvault Distributed Storage. Tailor your storage environment to your applications using cloud-native, software-defined, scale-out distributed storage. The distributed architecture writes data simultaneously across multiple locations, from on-premises datacenters to the cloud. This enables native multi-site resiliency, improved application portability, and enhanced data sovereignty and compliance.

Distributed writes storage

  • 3-site HA cluster
  • Active-active cluster across all 3 locations
  • If site fails, apps seamlessly migrate to remaining site
  • All I/O operations continue without any interruption
  • No downtime from storage

Built on industry-standard servers, Commvault Distributed Storage provides the multi-protocol support you require across block, file, and object storage with native application, hypervisor, container, and cloud integration to consolidate your storage siloes. This reduces data fragmentation, simplifies operations, and lowers costs.


  • Enable predictable performance, scale, and costs using scale-out
  • Support non-disruptive upgrades
  • Deliver automated and dynamic storage provisioning


  • Synchronize data across sites as it’s written, from on-prem to cloud
  • Provide fault tolerance against an infrastructure failure from a disk to a node to a site
  • Improve DR in the event of an on-prem or public cloud outage


  • Manage block, file, and object storage with a single solution
  • Run on industry standard servers
  • Configure and track storage using Commvault Command Center

Cloud native containers storage

Containers help accelerate application modernization. Commvault’s cloud native, software-defined, distributed storage provides programmable storage that allows DevOps to use next generation storage building blocks for containerized applications, regardless of where the applications live across your hybrid multi-cloud environment.

Private and hybrid cloud virtualization storage

Most enterprises have a mix of on-premises infrastructure and public cloud(s). This requires supporting multiple applications and hypervisors to move VMs from on-premises to the cloud. You also want to speed up provisioning to simplify managing VMs throughout their lifecycle. Commvault software-defined distributed storage provides VM storage throughout the entire VM lifecycle across hypervisors and decreases time spent provisioning storage by 75% vs. legacy solutions.

Commvault Distributed Storage is integrated into Commvault Command Center

Native integration with Commvault Command Center means you can unify storage and data management using a single pane of glass. Simply navigate to the ‘Distributed Storage’ option in the ‘Storage’ drop down menu from the main page. From here you can easily configure and track your storage, whether it’s for copy data management or using distributed storage as a disaster recovery target.

Modern storage infrastructure with lower costs

Software-defined distributed storage provides a more predictable infrastructure that helps simplify your environment while lowering your storage costs.

Scale-out provides predictable costs versus over buying capacity upfront with traditional scale-up solutions.

Deduplication, compression and erasure coding optimize storage efficiency.

Block, file and object storage support consolidate your storage infrastructure, enable pay-as-you-grow scaling and eliminate data silos.

Distributed storage designed for hybrid cloud

Distributed storage provides a unique disaster recovery policy for your applications. A highly available storage cluster that spans multiple data centers or clouds simplifies your adoption of a truly hybrid cloud. Deploy software on-premises and in public clouds to create an implicitly hybrid storage system.
