Migration to azure

  1. Deduplicated backup via Commvault Media Agent (standard deduplication building block design)
    Backups can be written directly to Azure, or also stored on-premises for the lifecycyle of the migration project to provide an additional locally-based fast restore method to de-risk the migration strategy per host/dataset/application.
  2. VM restore & convert into new Azure VM’s, or application out-of-place restores (ie. SQL, MySQL, Exchange, File) to existing instances. Backups post-migration performed in-cloud to Azure via Media Agent.
