Commvault HyperScale™ Software with Supermicro Servers

Scale-out data protection for solving today’s challenges

A new approach is needed for organizations to solve their needs for greater resiliency, availability, scalability and predictable performance for data management. No longer are traditional, scale-up infrastructures able to keep pace and meet the challenges of today’s businesses. Stop risking your business by not being able to recover your data in the time it requires. Commvault is addressing today’s IT business challenges with Commvault HyperScale Software, a complete solution built exclusively with Commvault software on a scale-out infrastructure. Through Commvault’s Validated Reference Design Program, working with Supermicro for the compute and storage is easier and delivers a more robust data protection solution. By integrating the hardware and software, Commvault ensures the right infrastructure is in place to deliver a unified, modern data protection and management platform for you to better manage, protect and use your data.

Supermicro® SuperStorage Servers

The Supermicro SuperStorage servers improve upon their existing extensive portfolio of modern solutions to drive IT transformation in the data center. The highly optimized SuperStorage 6029P-E1CR12L ensures that the acquisition, deployment and upkeep are streamlined. The 6029P-E1CR24L is Supermicro’s Simply Double 2U SuperStorage that includes twice the number of hot-swap driver bays as a standard 2U system. This configuration provides a superior storage density for customers to realize a greater efficiency in their storage deployments. The 6049P-E1CR24L is Supermicro’s 4U SuperStorage server that provides the same infrastructure as the 2U system. However, it has the added expansion capabilities of external optional I/O cards when required. These three systems represent a suited platform for Commvault HyperScale Software to expand and transform capabilities for customers in today’s evolving software-defined world.

Commvault HyperScale Software with Reference Design

With Commvault HyperScale Software, you can build a unified, modern data protection and management platform that delivers greater services on-premises.

By building these services on a scale-out infrastructure and leveraging Commvault’s Validated Reference Design Program, you’ll realize these benefits through the greater software and hardware integration:

  • Eliminate complexity and time-consuming steps of identifying, testing and optimizing the configuration for data management
  • Simplify management with a single, easy-to-use graphical user interface for software, compute and storage
  • Reduce capital expenditures by leveraging your existing hardware partner agreement and provide greater standardization
  • Easily scale to petabytes of data without incurring costly or complex forklift upgrades
  • Seamless support experience delivered and managed by Commvault

Through shifting the secondary storage and data management to a scale-out infrastructure and built on the Commvault Validated Reference Design, enterprises can go a long way in transforming their data centers to be as operationally efficient, resilient and scalable as public cloud infrastructure. Lower hardware costs, operational efficiencies and simplified support allows the replacement of limited and legacy backup tools at the cost of replacing proprietary secondary storage or legacy purpose-built backup appliances (PBBA). More important, this architecture, which extends natively into public cloud, allows enterprises to offer consistent sets of services to all workloads running on-premises or in public cloud, independent of the underlying infrastructure for true cloud-based data management.

Commvault HyperScale Software and Supermicro Servers – the bottom line

Commvault HyperScale Software with a Supermicro Validated Reference Design provides enterprises with the freedom of choice for designing their scale-out infrastructure. The benefits include choosing the hardware configuration sizes and models to meet your needs, leveraging your existing hardware partner relationships for consistency throughout your environment and tested configurations to speed implementation, management and support. With Commvault HyperScale Software and the Supermicro SuperStorage server, you can build a unified, modern data protection and management platform that delivers greater resiliency, availability, and scale with predictable performance and economics.

Solution brief: Commvault HyperScale™ Technology

Commvault HyperScale Technology consolidates all the roles performed by discrete servers in the traditional data protection architecture into a single software-defined stack. Commvault HyperScale spans multiple storage nodes running on general purpose servers, creating a massively addressable storage pool with built-in enterprise class data management capabilities.
