Big Data doesn’t have to be a big deal

For many organizations, Big Data apps like Cassandra, Greenplum, and MongoDB have become new critical enterprise applications. However, big data has posed big challenges, specifically in the area of data protection and recovery.  The reason – they are trying to apply old data protection logic to a new challenge.  The reality is, it simply won’t work – a modern data protection solution is required.

A disciplined approach to big data protection

Due to complexity, performance and cost issues, most companies neglect to apply data protection and disaster recovery to their big data environments. As a result, those massive volumes of data aren’t being protected from disaster – and can leave companies out of compliance with data governance requirements.

Data management for big data can be a challenge, but Commvault can help. With an intelligent approach to protecting the complex infrastructure of big data initiatives, Commvault automates disaster recovery and ensures business continuity for multi-node environments with huge data sets.

Big data portability and rapid recovery

Using a unique combination of technologies for extending management into the public cloud, Commvault will dramatically reduce the cost of your disaster recovery strategy. Big data sets can be replicated into a public cloud for cost effective storage at scale. And, to contain costs, cloud compute is provisioned only when required for regular disaster recovery testing or an actual event. If a disaster recovery event occurs, Commvault can automatically provision the required compute nodes and recover the big data environment in a public cloud infrastructure ensuring business continuity and flexibility like never before.
