Commvault Complete™ Data Protection

A comprehensive, all-in-one solution for data protection and disaster recovery that allows you to protect and recover your entire data environment, across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments


Overview

Commvault Complete Data Protection helps ensure data availability and business continuity across both your on-premises and cloud environments. It provides simple, scalable and comprehensive backup, replication and disaster recovery orchestration for all your workloads. And it’s easily managed through an intuitive, web-based user interface with role-based access control, enabling fully-permissioned self-service, freeing-up your IT staff to focus on higher-value activities.

The Challenge

As data takes center stage in business operations, workloads are becoming more complex and increasingly distributed. Traditional approaches to backup and recovery are no longer adequate for even smaller organizations. And as more and more companies recognize that their existing tools can’t keep pace with the rapid change occurring in their data center environments, they’re struggling to find a solution that is both flexible enough to accommodate new workload types and scalable enough to accommodate unprecedented data growth.

Our Solution

Commvault Complete Data Protection is a single, powerful backup software solution for data protection – wherever your data lives. You need a backup and recovery solution that can keep up with you. Say goodbye to point products that increase complexity and costs. Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery can meet all your needs.

  • Cloud Backup. More than 80% of companies are using multiple clouds today. So if you’re not already using multi-clouds, you will be. And Commvault has you covered, with support for more than 40 cloud storage options across public and private clouds. This gives you the flexibility to create a hybrid cloud environment where you can back up (and recover) data to the cloud, within the cloud and even between clouds.
  • Virtual Machines. Virtualization offers a powerful and flexible way to accommodate the explosion of data and applications. But creating and deploying virtual servers, storage and applications across private and public clouds can create its own challenges. Commvault allows you to back up, recover and manage your VMs across your environment, regardless of where they live. No more standalone point products, no more data silos, no more redundant infrastructure and no more VM sprawl.
  • Applications and Databases. You’ve got a lot of databases and applications across your environment – some old, some new. What you don’t want is a lot of products to protect them. Commvault’s breadth and depth of support for database and applications, including distributed applications, is unmatched. You can migrate workloads to the cloud, back up databases efficiently and speed up access to data, all using a single solution.
  • Endpoints. Protecting databases and enterprise applications is critical, but what about endpoints? Almost half of your data – including important customer information and intellectual property – lives on desktops, laptops and mobile devices. Many times, these devices are targeted for cyberattacks like ransomware, making protecting them a must. Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery for endpoint protection can be easily installed on these devices, enabling users to recover files on their own.
  • Disaster Recovery. Natural disasters, hardware failures, data breaches, and ransomware attacks are inevitable. The key is to be prepared and have a good disaster recovery plan in place for when they do happen. But not all data is equal; you need to be able to balance your recovery requirements and costs against the service level agreements unique to your business. And while your recovery timeframes should be tied to the importance of the data, you still need a single solution to reduce complexity. Commvault’s easy-to-use solution tackles that complexity, and allows you to recover your data, wherever it is.

A single view for managing your entire environment

The Commvault Command Center™ is a web-based user interface for managing your data protection and disaster recovery initiatives. It provides default configuration values and streamlined procedures for routine data protection and recovery tasks.

You can use the Command Center to set up your data protection environment to identify content that you want to protect, and to initiate and monitor backups and restores. The main navigation pane allows you to easily access various components including downloads, forms, analytics, monitoring and more. The Global Search Bar allows you to search for specific CommCell entities and navigation items. And role-based access control allows you to restrict access so that your employees have access to only the information they need to do their jobs, and even limit actions they are allowed to undertake. This provides a controlled foundation for self-service, helping to reduce the load on your admins and IT support staff.
