Commvault HyperScale™ Appliances, an integrated backup appliance, are a complete solution built exclusively with Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery Software. That means you’ll be able to take advantage of built-in coverage for over 200 platforms—spanning operating systems, applications, storage arrays, hypervisors, and public clouds—as well as application-aware backups, support for leading databases, comprehensive automation, and integration across all major cloud platforms.

Built on Commvault’s industry-leading technology, it allows you to significantly decrease complexity and cost while increasing both scalability and IT agility across the data center and the cloud. Because this solution is pre-designed, built, sold and supported by Commvault, you’ll save time in hardware acquisition, installation and integration, daily management and patching and updating. Plus, you’ll enjoy streamlined, single-call support for the entire solution.

Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance delivers the powerful simpicity of Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery with a highly available, scale-out integrated system. As a scale-out infrastructure, it delivers a single platform for sharing compute and storage resources, and is supported by the Commvault Command Center™ - a unified management interface, to reduce the total cost of ownership. Commvault HyperScale™ Appliances can seamlessly expand to meet customers demanding performance and capacity requirements.

The Commvault HyperScale™ architecture

The Commvault HyperScale™ Appliances consists of compute and storage blocks which form a hyperconverged scale-out storage pool. Each node has dedicated solid state disks (SSDs) for optimal performance of Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery and SAS hard disk drives dedicated for the Commvault data storage pool. The Commvault HyperScale™ Appliances utilizes a combination of erasure coding, redundant hardware components, and hypervisor layer CommServe integrity to provide a highy available and resilient architecture.

Solution Brief : Commvault HyperScale™ Technology

Commvault HyperScale™ technology consolidates all the roles performed by discrete servers in the traditional data protection architecture into a single software-defined stack.
