Workflow Automation

The more systems you have, the more time it takes to manage and maintain them — and the more you could benefit from a workflow automation tool that streamlines and automates critical data management tasks like disaster recovery.

Commvault software makes it easy to automate repetitive or highly complex data management tasks by combining individual process sets in a specific order or decision tree. Customizing our software to meet your company’s specific IT needs couldn't be simpler — whether you deploy our pre-built workflows or design your own with our intuitive graphical user interface.

Save Time and Reduce Risk

Save time and reduce risk by automating routine IT operations

Applying the same processes to hundreds or even thousands of systems is costly, time-consuming and creates the risk of human error. Our workflow automation capabilities let you merge multiple manual processes into a single automated workflow, ensuring the same task can be repeated seamlessly and error-free regardless of the scale of your operations. That means you can fully automate your traditional runbooks, eliminate hours of shell scripting and make more efficient use of your valuable time.

Build your own workflows with drag-and-drop ease

Commvault’s drag-and-drop visual interface simplifies and streamlines the process of creating custom workflows. Choose basic tasks and activities from our built-in library and arrange them in whatever workflow best suits your business processes. It’s this easy:

Commvault provides a library of pre-built workflows to carry out common tasks including:

  • Connectivity checks for all computers in a client group
  • Storage policy changes for all default file system subclients in a specific client group
  • Virtual machine creation, renewal or deletion
  • Disaster recovery setup testing
  • Command execution on each computer in a specific client group
  • Configuration changes across multiple clients in a single stack
  • Automated system registration during initial client setup

Any of our built-in workflows can be modified and executed to perform customized tasks. And new workflows are continually being developed for downloading from our cloud-based store.
