Commvault® Disaster Recovery datasheet

An easy-to-use Disaster Recovery solution with orchestration, automation and verifiable recoverability to help ensure business continuity across on-premises and cloud environments


Overview

Commvault Disaster Recovery provides an easy-to-use replication and disaster recovery (DR) solution from a single extensible platform, all managed through an intuitive, web-based user interface. Commvault’s standalone DR solution is both easy to implement and cost-effective. It provides orchestration and automated compliance reporting, flexible replication, cost-optimized cloud data mobility, and verifiable recoverability via copy data management.

Challenges

As the number and types of your workloads increase – the cloud, VMs, containers, applications, databases and endpoints – so too does the complexity of protecting and man-aging it all. And as data takes center stage for businesses both large and small, being able to easily protect and recover it becomes absolutely critical. Choosing the right DR solution can help ensure business continuity and avoid costly downtime. But to properly prepare for a DR event, you need to be able to verify the integrity of your data and validate for compliance. What you don’t need is to be retaining unnecessary copies of your datasets, which can add complexity and increase your storage costs. And that’s where Commvault can help.

Our solution

Commvault Disaster Recovery brings simplified, flexible and scalable disaster recovery to your organization, providing you with DR automation, replication and cost-optimized cloud data mobility. With support for multiple data types – including applications, containers, virtual machines and hypervisors – along with multi-cloud integration, one-click failover, multi-tenancy support, live replication and intuitive reporting, Commvault allows you to protect and recover your entire data environment, wherever it resides. And by enabling you to reuse your protected data through Copy Data Management, Commvault provides a cost-effective means to extract more business value from your data, for such things as DevOps, testing and analytics, helping to reduce storage cost and improving business outcomes.

Commvault simplifies Disaster Recovery to and from the public cloud

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.
