OpenStack instances
combat challenges

The promise of a highly scalable, tenant-focused, and vendor-agnostic cloud framework is what makes OpenStack appealing to so many organizations. As more enterprises deploy this open source, community-driven solution, a need for enterprise-grade protection that is both OpenStack-aware and integrates with its native APIs becomes a requirement. This allows them to run OpenStack cloud instances as production workloads. Additionally, being conceived to run Mode 2 Virtual Machines (VMs), OpenStack is continuously evolving, making it a multi-mode cloud with diverse use cases and its own unique challenges.

Performs OpenStack instance protection of both traditional and next-gen workloads

Native “top-down” cloud integration using OpenStack Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

Tenant-aware self-service, via Commvault Command Center™ – a web-based admin console user interface

Simplified Service Level Agreement (SLA)-based protection plans

With great power
comes great responsibility

With a massively scalable and distributed nature, OpenStack environments often encompass thousands of VMs. Built-in self-service helps shift control to the end-user, resulting in administrators frequently not knowing which types of workloads are living in their OpenStack cloud. Additionally, traditional and next-gen VMs co-mingle within the same cloud with multiple differing storage requirements. To address these complex challenges, Commvault offers an SLA-based protection solution with multiple tiers of access (from tenant to admin) that can quickly scale-out to meet the demands of a fast-growing OpenStack environment.

Global management and proactive monitoring

Use a single interface to recover data to any managed OpenStack cloud

Cloud aware integration

Protection infrastructure is hidden from tenants, to minimize impact on quotas and tenant resources

Simplified deployment and administration

VMware-to-OpenStack conversions facilitate workload migration

Backup and recovery

Native snapshot integration with OpenStack Cinder and Nova, for uninterrupted protection from the cloud layer.

Easy peasy functionality

As a software-based solution, Commvault provides extreme flexibility in deployment options. Commvault also offers an integrated solution with its Commvault HyperScale™ technology that combines all aspects of the data management platform in a scale-out system. For OpenStack, Commvault utilizes a hot-add protection methodology, so additional protection proxies can be easily and quickly deployed to meet the needs of your business. A single management interface consolidates all configuration, management, and reporting tools into a simple-to-operate portal, greatly reducing your administrative burden.
