Synopsis

Many enterprises have turned to array-based snapshots to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions. Compared to traditional solutions, snapshots offer faster recovery (data stays within the array), faster capture of data (snapshots happen in seconds), less disruption (almost no impact to applications), and the added benefit of lower costs for non-production copies (can run data copies from snapshots). Despite the benefits they provide, if you’re managing snapshots manually or with ‘script-it-yourself’ solutions, there may be several reasons they aren’t working well. These challenges include integrating applications, OSes, and hypervisors with the storage arrays across your environment; difficulty automating protection and recovery in scripts; changes to your software and hardware environment that break scripts; a lack of visibility across your environment; and/or routine personnel issues.

An effective, efficient snapshot management solution lets you accelerate protection and recovery, simplify operations, and scale with your environment. Commvault IntelliSnap technology streamlines and simplifies snapshot management making snapshots more valuable and effective at protecting and recovering data and applications.
