Overview

Azure Stack — Microsoft’s hybrid cloud solution — brings the benefits of the Azure public cloud to on-premises data centers. It enables such Azure services as Virtual Machine Scale Sets in your private data center with the same administrative tools and experiences you’d find with Azure Resource Manager in a public cloud environment. At Commvault, we believe that protecting, recovering and managing all the data in your Azure Stack environment should be simple. As part of the Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery product, this solution offers native integration with the Azure Stack API and provides a solid foundation for comprehensive backup and recovery, migration, and DR for all the data layers in your Azure Stack environment.

Comprehensive data protection for Azure Stack

Protecting a VM might seem simple; protecting thousands of VM’s, protecting non-VM data, migrating data onto your Azure Stack, and deploying a DR solution is not as simple. Commvault can help simplify these tasks by using SLA-based protection plans to protect your VMs, leverage our VM conversion to easily migrate data to your Azure Stack with just a couple of clicks, and deploy Live Sync Replication to meet your unique DR requirements.
