Commvault redefines its Data Platform to include Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform

Commvault has announced new innovations in the Commvault Data Platform to extend snapshot management capabilities to include the Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP). Through the innovation of Commvault ’s new software, Commvault and Nutanix are able to help joint enterprise customers address the evolving challenges of managing data and information in highly changing, fast-paced global business environments.

“Our next-generation software and platform provides Commvault customers using Nutanix a completely orchestrated solution to snapshot and data management complemented with the partner’s solution. Further, IntelliSnap technology automates the creation of application-aware hardware snapshot copies across Nutanix environments and catalogs snapshot data to simplify the recovery of individual files, databases or virtual machines without the need for a collection of scripts and disparate snapshot, backup, and recovery tools. Ultimately, this provides customers with fast access and recovery, not just for data loss events, but also to drive development, test, and analytical queries,” said Don Foster, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing and Technical Alliances, Commvault.

While snapshots have long been recognized as the fastest and most efficient way to recover data, virtual machines and applications, the Commvault Data Platform integration with Nutanix XCP helps accelerate the use of snapshots in the hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) stack. As a result, the complex lifecycle of snapshot management is now integrated into one seamless framework within the new solution, streamlining service delivery to the business for improved disaster recovery and data access.

Now more than ever, customers are looking for partners to provide efficient and scalable services for data availability and recovery beyond what has been offered through more traditional IT infrastructures. By integrating the speed and convenience of Nutanix -based snapshots, with the automated index and search capabilities of Commvault, enterprise customers can ensure rapid recovery that meets business needs and ongoing continuity.

“Commvault delivers industry-recognized data protection and recovery solutions for Nutanix customers. Our relationship with Commvault is another clear example of our track record of working with strategic partners to deliver innovative solutions that solve customer problems to the market,” said Venu gopal Pai, Vice-President, Strategic Alliances and Business Development, Nutanix.

Commvault IntelliSnap on Nutanix is now available for VMWare v Sphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.
