Commvault has announced enhancements to Metallic, Commvault’s enterprise-grade SaaS data protection portfolio. These new features include support for a range of new workloads and compliance needs, including expanded support for Microsoft applications, advanced eDiscovery capabilities, and compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Building on its strategic partnership with Microsoft, Metallic is leveraging the security and scalability of Azure PaaS, native services, and Azure Blob Storage to provide simple SaaS-based cloud data protection.
Metallic Core Backup & Recovery provides the ability to protect with physical and virtual servers on-prem, VMware and in-cloud virtual machines. It also features integrated application support for MS SQL 2008-2017 and scales as needed. Key capabilities include smart scheduling, compression and deduplication. There are a collection of preconfigured and recommended plans built off of some of the industry’s most well-known best practices as well. The product is available via three distinct offerings, including Core Backup & Recovery, Office 365 Backup & Recovery, and Metallic Endpoint Backup & Recovery.
Metallic is able to provide data protection for on-prem, cloud-native, and SaaS workloads, including new support for Microsoft Hyper-V, Azure Blob Storage, and Azure Files. Additionally, the platform is going beyond backup and into Intelligent Data Management with new eDiscovery capabilities coming later this month for both Office 365 and endpoint data. With eDiscovery, Metallic enables users to search and export data for regulatory and organizational compliance. Through a single, centralized search, Metallic customers can now identify and uncover relevant and sensitive data across Office 365 and Endpoint workloads.
In a press statement, Manoj Nair, General Manager at Metallic, said, “our goal is to be the trusted, enterprise-class SaaS solution for Intelligent Data Management. Our commitment to innovation is shining through as we continue to expand our portfolio with the simplest, cloud-based protection of mission-critical workloads for existing Commvault customers and new customers alike. Not only do our customers benefit from the predictable costs of a SaaS consumption model, with Metallic they can eliminate infrastructure management, big capital expenditures, and they can address local compliance requirements with cloud storage options.”
