SCALE-OUT DATA PROTECTION FOR SOLVING TODAY’S CHALLENGES
A new approach is needed for organizations to solve their needs for greater resiliency, availability, scalability, and predictable performance for data management. No longer are traditional, scale-up infrastructures able to keep pace and meet the challenges of today’s businesses. Stop risking your business by not being able to recover your data in the time it requires. Commvault is addressing today’s IT business challenges with Commvault HyperScale™ Software, a complete solution built exclusively with Commvault software on a scale-out infrastructure. Through Commvault’s Validated Reference Design Program, working with Cisco for the compute and storage is easier and delivers a more robust data protection solution. By integrating the hardware and software, Commvault ensures the right infrastructure is in place to deliver a unified, modern data protection and management platform for you to better manage, protect, and use your data.
CISCO UCS® SERVERS
Cisco UCS® C-Series Rack and S-Series Storage Servers drive IT transformation in the data center. They represent a well-suited platform for Commvault HyperScale™ Software to expand and transform capabilities for customers in today’s evolving software-defined world. Cisco UCS® S3260 Storage Server is a modular dual node x86 server designed for investment protection. Its architectural flexibility provides high performance or high capacity for data intensive workloads. Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers deliver unified computing in an industry-standard form factor to reduce TCO and increase agility. Both Cisco UCS servers have a number of options to ensure that the acquisition, deployment, management, and support are streamlined. By leveraging Commvault HyperScale™ Software and a Validated Reference Design with Cisco UCS Servers, you are able to maximize the return on investment by reducing the complexity, cost, and risk over traditional, scale-up solutions.
COMMVAULT HYPERSCALE™ SOFTWARE WITH REFERENCE DESIGN
With Commvault HyperScale™ Software, you can build a unified, modern data protection and management platform that delivers greater services on-premises.
By building these services on a scale-out infrastructure and leveraging Commvault’s Validated Reference Design Program, you’ll realize these benefits through greater software and hardware integration:
- Eliminate complexity and time-consuming steps of identifying, testing, and optimizing the configuration for data management
- Simplify management with a single, easy-to-use graphical user interface for software, compute and storage
- Reduce capital expenditures by leveraging your existing hardware partner agreement and provide greater standardization
- Easily scale to petabytes of data without incurring costly or complex forklift upgrades
- Seamless support experience delivered and managed by Commvault
Through shifting the secondary storage and data management to a scale-out infrastructure and built on the Commvault Validated Reference Design, enterprises can go a long way in transforming their data centers to be as operationally efficient, resilient and scalable as public cloud infrastructure. Lower hardware costs, operational efficiencies and simplified support allows the replacement of limited and legacy backup tools at the cost of replacing proprietary secondary storage or legacy purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA). More importantly, this architecture, which extends natively into public cloud, allows enterprises to offer consistent sets of services to all workloads running on-premises or in public cloud, independent of the underlying infrastructure for true cloud based data management.
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. Commvault HyperScale™ spans multiple storage nodes running on general purpose servers, creating a massively addressable storage pool with built-in enterprise class data management capabilities.
COMMVAULT HYPERSCALE™ SOFTWARE AND CISCO UCS – THE BOTTOM LINE
Commvault HyperScale™ Software with a Cisco UCS Validated Reference Design provides enterprises with the freedom of choice for designing their scale-out infrastructure. The benefits include choosing the hardware configuration sizes and models to meet your needs, leveraging your existing hardware partner relationships for consistency throughout your environment, and tested configurations to speed implementation, management, and support. With Commvault HyperScale™ Software and the Cisco UCS server, you can build a unified, modern data protection and management platform that delivers greater resiliency, availability, and scale with predictable performance and economics.
