Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) backup offering

Solution highlights

  • Cost-effective and reliable modern data protection for IaaS workloads
  • Predictable data protection costs through well-defined service plans
  • Enhanced capabilities and reduced administrative overhead with self-service restore
  • Eliminate the need to acquire, implement and absorb costs associated with acquisition of backup software and subject matter expertise in-house

Overview

While customers’ reasons for choosing an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) environment differ, the expectations generally remain the same – a highly available, protected, managed environment with predictable costs, and subject matter expertise bundled as part of the service.

However, many do not look at their data protection needs until a disaster occurs. Opting instead to operate an expensive backup environment against the Managed IaaS offering, this creates unnecessary consumption of resources, administrative overheads and additional hidden costs. In many cases, customers do not realize they can save both time and money, and improve their ability to restore data and services by switching to an IaaS backup offering.

Infrastructure as a Service Backup offerings, powered by Commvault, present an opportunity for customers to address critical infrastructure pain points by packaging the technology and expertise into a single offering,
