Commvault HyperScale™ Technology


Your backup, archive, object storage and other uses of secondary storage have been consuming an alarming amount of IT resources. To manage this data, you’ve been relying on a traditional scale-up architecture frequently adding purpose-built hardware as needs dictate. It’s difficult to operate efficiently, cost-effectively and meet your service level agreements in this situation. Adding more hardware and IT staff isn’t a sustainable solution. Your growing data volume is overwhelming your resources and being locked in to a specific storage platform is accelerating your costs. Meanwhile, you’re moving forward without tackling the core issue: an outdated data protection and management strategy built on a scale-up infrastructure.

With Commvault HyperScale™ Technology, you can build a unified, modern data protection solution. Delivered as either a converged Commvault appliance or through our trusted network of partners, it provides on-premises scale-out backup and recovery for greater scale, flexibility and cost.

Scale-up challenges

Your scale-up strategy for protecting data on-premises or in the cloud is directly causing:

  • Overbuying capacity to address future growth or underestimating your storage needs
  • Missing service levels due to difficulty in scaling infrastructure for operational needs
  • Multiple data silos preventing the integration of applications, data and infrastructure
  • Inability to migrate to the cloud or deliver new and faster services
  • Complex management and operations require additional staff for even simple tasks

By shifting the data protection and secondary storage infrastructure to Commvault HyperScale™ Technology, a scale-out architecture, you can go a long way in transforming your environment to be as operationally efficient, resilient and scalable as a public cloud infrastructure.
