Commvault Backup for NetApp Systems and HCI Solutions blogIn this digital world, it’s all about data—not only at the enterprise level but at the individual level as well. And as we all know, data is growing rapidly in both structured and unstructured forms, To manage and maintain that data is costly affair.

 

Have you ever lost a lot of really important data? Or, short of that, have you ever felt a moment of panic when you thought you had? Data loss can happen to any company or to any individual.

 

Backing up data should be a regular part of your cyber hygiene. If you lose data due to a hardware defect, physical disaster, or ransomware attack, having a backup could be your only recovery option.

 

According to reports from tech industry leaders like Cisco and Microsoft, cyberattacks against businesses of all sizes are on the rise, and they’re doing more damage than ever before. The large number of businesses that are victims of these attacks lose revenue, which can result in losing customers and brand reputation.

 

To deal with these risks,  NetApp and Commvault have come up with a solution for backing up data in NetApp® storage using Commvault software.

 

When organizations implement any solution, they need an enterprise backup and recovery solution, such as Commvault software, to ensure that their data is available and protected, and that it supports the business requirements.

 

An enterprise backup and recovery solution should do the following things.

 

Reduce costs. The solution contains tools and resources to curtail both capex and opex. It lessens storage costs, with tools like source-side deduplication, to move data across storage tiers to align the value of the data with the cost of the storage. In addition, it includes automation, self-service, and policies to reduce IT management time.

 

Minimize risk. The solution provides the resilience, availability,  and scale to meet your service levels. It allows backup data to be moved, managed, and protected across different storage tiers and locations. It prevents a single event—such as losing multiple disks or nodes, or even the entire the site—from wiping out all of your data and the ability to recover it.

 

Realize greater efficiency. Through a web-based interface, a modern backup and recovery solution provides the tools to index, back up, deduplicate, make snapshot copies, and manage and move data. It backs up to wherever the data resides and restores it anywhere.

 Why Commvault?

Commvault offers functions that minimize risk, reduce costs, and deliver greater efficiency. Many businesses are migrating to the cloud, or running software and systems remotely via the internet. And backup solutions are no exception.

 

A cloud backup is a secure offsite copy of data, stored on remote servers that can be accessed at any time via an internet connection. Cloud backups provide additional redundancy security for businesses that want to make sure that their important data is available if an onsite or physical disaster strikes. The following Commvault features ensure the ability to use the cloud in the best way possible.

 

Smart native integration with cloud technology. Commvault’s cloud-native integration makes the cloud an extension of the data center. It does it not require any cloud infrastructure, reducing storage and access costs.

 

Built-in multicloud support. Customers are free to  use one cloud provider or multiple providers, with easy multicloud management.

 

Multicloud  migration to, from, and across clouds. Commvault offers fast conversion, replication, and migration of virtual workloads to and from the cloud and across multiclouds.

 

Multicloud disaster recovery. Commvault’s multicloud disaster recovery makes it easy to responsibly manage the cloud.

 

Cloud resource management and control. Commvault provides the elastic control you expect for your cloud workloads.
