AWS Disaster recovery with Commvault

Comprehensive, cost-effective AWS disaster recovery in the cloud. Pay for what you need, when you need it.

Eliminate the need for costly multi-year DR contracts

The challenge with disaster recovery is the cost to keep a DR site active, powered up and ready to go live. Commvault’s AWS disaster recovery solution allows you to move and manage your disaster recovery in the cloud, eliminating the need for expensive secondary data centers or multi-year DR contracts. We’ll help you be ready—while reducing costs.

Single solution addresses all your DR requirements, making sure your data is ready

Commvault’s policy-driven data platform manages the RTO/RPO requirements across your most critical applications to your less critical data and applications. You select the policies and Commvault software does the rest.

On-demand recovery for testing and incident response

Commvault DR orchestration keeps your data on low cost AWS storage until it’s time for monthly testing or when you need to recover from an incident. Why pay for cloud services when not using them? With Commvault DR orchestration, you’ll recover TBs of data and hundreds of servers in hours, not days or weeks1 and only pay for services when you need it. DR Testing happens in minutes, not hours, and Commvault orchestration automates failback, simplifying testing and minimizing manual intervention.

Ransomware protection

AI and in-depth analytics monitor your risk profile and data pool. Alerts warn you of potential ransomware/malware attacks so you can quickly isolate the attack, ensuring minimal impact. Automation reduces risk of human error and foundation and application hardening halt attacks in their tracks. With Commvault ransomware protection, both you and your data will be ready.
