5 requirements for cloud backup and recovery

When it comes to using the cloud for backup and recovery of critical workloads, reliability and complete coverage are key. This demands a comprehensive cloud data protection platform like Commvault. Quickly backup and recover applications, databases, virtual machines and full workloads.

We recently asked Commvault cloud data protection customers for answers to a critical question: Which aspects of Commvault cloud data protection are most useful? Here’s how they ranked the top 5 requirements for cloud backup and recovery.

We are using Commvault deduplication to reduce the amount of data in the cloud, which helps us reduce budget costs.
