Commvault on Tuesday unveiled two cloud-ready data infrastructure offerings designed to provide customers with on-premises “simplicity, elasticity, resiliency, flexibility and scale” for managing and protecting secondary data.
Commvault HyperScale Software and Commvault HyperScale Appliance allow enterprises to replace legacy backup tools with cloud-enabled data management. The two are available as an all-in-one software and appliance bundle or as a reference architecture design with the software.
Ralph Nimergood, Commvault’s vice president of worldwide channels and alliances, tells Channel Partners there are new opportunities for partners to expand their portfolios to address the “extremely fast growing market for scale-out data management solutions.”
“This includes the flexibility to recommend a compute/storage platform to meet their customer’s choice, and streamline installation and professional services based on hardened reference architectures, installation and best-practice guides, or with the Commvault HyperScale Appliance,” he said. “Additionally, Commvault HyperScale solutions address the needs midsize and enterprise customers have to provide an ‘on premises, scale-out’ solution with cloud-like economics for those applications that either can’t move easily to the cloud or the business requires them to maintain in a local storage pool.”
The HyperScale technology is available directly through Commvault or through its global partner community. They are configured to make it easy for partners to quote, sell, support and implement, the company said.
The launch addresses the ongoing shift enterprises are making toward secondary storage as a means to drive key business and IT transformation initiatives, according to Commvault. About 70 percent of customer data is consumed as a secondary copy, and therefore these solutions are able to meet the increasing demands of the secondary storage market by delivering customers a data protection and management platform that delivers cloud-like services on premises, it said.
Commvault HyperScale Appliance integrates compute, storage, networking, virtualization, backup and recovery, full life-cycle data management and analytics into a single platform across the data center and in the cloud. Because it is pre-designed, built, sold and supported by Commvault, customers save time in hardware acquisition, installation and integration, daily management and patching and updating.
