Commvault has announced enhanced capabilities for its Commvault Disaster Recovery solution. Commvault Disaster Recovery now supports recovery automation with continuous replication for VMware workloads. Additionally, the solution supports orchestration to, from, and between on-premises, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Commvault provides data protection and information management software to help organizations protect, access, and use their data economically. The vendor has a long list of supported public cloud providers, hypervisors, big data support, and database protection. The platform is primarily offered as a software-only solution, but Commvault also has an appliance option. Recently, Commvault acquired the data storage solution provider, Hedvig. Additionally, Commvault also recently launched Metallic, its division of SaaS solutions.
With this announcement, Commvault now offers disaster recovery automation for Microsoft Azure and AWS within zones or across regions, along with simple cross-cloud migration support. Commvault’s solution provides scalable replication and disaster recovery automation through a single extensible platform. Automated failover and failback deliver verifiable recoverability, as well as comprehensive reporting for both monitoring and compliance. The platform enables continuous data replication with fully automated disaster recovery capabilities.
In a press statement, Steven Hannah, Backup Recovery/Storage Solutions Architect at Meridian IT, said, “we’ve been impressed by Commvault Disaster Recovery from day one. The flexible recovery automation functionality paired with the simplicity of Commvault Command Center puts effective, near-real-time disaster recovery right at the customer’s fingertips. This addition of support for Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services as a Disaster Recovery target for VMware workloads is a natural and compelling evolution of the product.”
Further use cases supported by these enhancements to the solution include cloud migration, seamless integration with storage replication, ransomware protection, smart app validation in sandbox, instant mounts for DevOps with data masking, among others.
Rahul Pawar, Vice President of Product Management at Commvault, added, “business continuity, in the event of ransomware attacks or site disasters are top of mind for all businesses. The new additions to Commvault Disaster Recovery mark a big step forward in ensuring reliable recovery for our customers while taking full advantage of the agility and flexibility of public clouds.”
