Virtual Machines | Files & Operating Systems | Applications & Databases

Options for remote recovery of systems in the event of a disaster, have dramatically opened up with many Service Providers around the globe offering IaaS for your organization to use, as and when needed, negating the need to procure racks of hardware which lay dormant for 99% of their lifetime.

Clear leaders in the IaaS industry Microsoft Azure, offer incredible savings in time and cost with use of their IaaS platform for DR purposes. Commvault’s industry leading data and information management close the gap in leveraging these facilities. With deeply integrated technology into Azure services, Commvault has made moving, updating and recovery of systems to the cloud, in a controlled and secure manner a reality, allowing organizations to refine the process of recovering their systems.

Cold/Warm disaster recovery to azure

FY17CLD_DRToAzure_Diagram
  1. Deduplicated backup to Commvault Media Agent (standard deduplication building block design). Short term recovery points are retained on-premises to deliver fast, local-based restores.
  2. Deduplicated assisted copy to Azure (DASH copy) over direct Internet IPsec VPN tunnel and/or ExpressRoute. Recovery points in Azure become an independent, discrete second copy of the data. No gateway/specialist hardware required (all software-driven).
  3. VM restore & convert into new Azure VM’s, or application out-of-place restores (ie. SQL, MySQL, Exchange, File) to existing instances. Destination MA can be powered off when not in-use for cost savings.
