Backup Appliance

Our purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) simplify data protection and management by combining storage hardware with backup and recovery software in a single, integrated package.

Forget about the complex task of building your own solution. Commvault’s integrated backup appliances provide pre-packaged solutions that are easy to deploy and manage. Our region-specific solutions combine award-winning Commvault software with storage hardware from industry leaders: NetApp in North America and Fujitsu in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa. We also provide reference architectures if you’re looking to deploy our software with your existing storage array.

Grow. Adapt. Simplify

Providing an easy, flexible way to introduce Commvault software into your environment, our backup appliances address a wide-range of business needs and use cases, ranging from support for remote or branch offices (ROBO) with limited IT staff up to large corporate data centers, delivering:

Powerful scalability

Plug-and-play scaling lets you add additional capacity or compute power without having to reconfigure your environment: simply add disk shelves or nodes as needed. Parallel deduplication - combing deduplication pools into a single storage pool - provides additional scalability, failover and load balancing, meaning your software is never a potential single point of failure.

Broad flexibility

Start with a single node for smaller sites or combine multiple appliances to serve larger environments. When you’re ready to expand beyond just backup, adding new features to your appliance is easy: simply add optional licensing to integrate snapshot management, email archiving and more.

Simple management

Because every Commvault solution is built on a common enterprise-class platform, multiple backup appliances can be deployed and managed from a single centralized console — significantly reducing operational costs and complexity.

Pre-packaged backup appliances

We’ve partnered with two leaders in storage hardware — NetApp and Fujitsu — to offer pre-packaged backup appliances that are easy to buy, deploy and manage.
