Hitachi Data Protection Suite (HDPS) HyperScale powered by Commvault® with Supermicro® SuperStorage 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. Hitachi Vantara is addressing today’s IT business challenges with Hitachi Data Protection Suite (HDPS) HyperScale powered by Commvault, a scale-out architecture solution built using HDPS powered by Commvault HyperScale software. Commvault’s Validated Reference Design Program makes it easy to work with HDPS and Supermicro servers for the compute and storage to deliver a robust data protection solution. By integrating the hardware and software, Hitachi 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 server

Hitachi has worked with Commvault to develop a reference design to support customers’ diverse needs. Built on the Supermicro server platform, HDPS HyperScale powered by Commvault is well suited to expand and transform capabilities for customers in today’s evolving software-defined world.

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 reference design has a number of options to ensure the acquisition, deployment, management and support are streamlined. By leveraging this solution, you can maximize your return on investment by reducing complexity, cost and risk over traditional scale-up solutions.

Taking the guesswork out of data protection

HDPS HyperScale powered by Commvault reference design

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

Built on a Validated Reference Design, HDPS HyperScale powered by Commvault provides enterprises with flexibility to design their scale-out infrastructure.

By building these services on a scale-out infrastructure and leveraging Commvault’s Validated Reference Design Program, you’ll be able to realize these benefits through 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, easyto-use graphical user interface for software, compute and storage
  • Easily scale to petabytes of data without incurring costly or complex forklift upgrades
  • Seamless support experience delivered and managed by Hitachi

By shifting secondary storage and data management to a scale-out infrastructure built on a 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 allow 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 the public cloud – independent of the underlying infrastructure – for true cloud-based data management.

HDPS HyperScale powered by Commvault and Supermicro servers – the bottom line

HDPS HyperScale powered by Commvault with Supermicro Validated Reference Design provides enterprises with a tested and validated design for their scale-out infrastructure. By removing the guesswork of a build your own solution, the benefits include having a hardware configuration identified to meet your needs and deploying tested configurations to speed implementation, management and support. With HDPS HyperScale powered by Commvault and Supermicro servers, you can build a unified, modern data protection and management platform that delivers greater resiliency, availability, and scale with predictable performance and economics.
