Commvault has launched its new VM (Virtual Machine) Backup and Recovery trial software for customers and partners.
The software from Commvault, a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, has significant enhancements on user experience, disaster recovery and cloud on-ramp.
Commvault’s VM Backup and Recovery software expands the company’s leadership in enabling customers to build, protect and optimise VMs throughout their lifecycle and migrate data and VMs to the public cloud of their choice, including AWS, Microsoft Azure and VMware.
Available as a free download to customers directly on the Commvault website, the VM Backup and Recovery software provides users the full experience of Commvault’s best-in-class software to back up and recover virtual machines, structured and unstructured data, as well as physical machines with speed and enterprise scale.
Commvault’s VM solution offers customers the simplicity and cost of down-market solutions while providing a far greater range of powerful capabilities and integration with cloud and on-premises solutions than any VM-only provider.
“Large organisations are increasing their reliance on backup and recovery solutions that will support their enterprise-class requirements, as well as leading technologies to fully exploit the cloud as a strategic business initiative,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO of Commvault.
“As data experts, we always want to be able to provide customers with data management solutions that scale as their business evolves and power their digital transformation to overcome complex data issues to drive value and insight out of their data.”
Commvault’s single, open data management platform was organically built with scalability in mind unlike complex competitive solutions that offer limited cloud support and require expensive appliances and third party add-ons to give enterprises the scalability they need.
Proven by many multi-petabyte installations in some of the worlds’ largest and toughest VMware, Hyper-V and Public Cloud environments, Commvault offers customers scalable data protection with the automation and tools to do so much more.
Commvault’s VM Backup and Recovery includes the following key features and benefits:
• Enables customers to future-proof their environment and be able to scale beyond 100 TBs with ease to meet the unique needs of the business as it evolves.
• Supports 20+ storage vendors, 10+ hypervisors and 40+ cloud platforms.
• Easily creates and re-uses protection plans that align with service level requirements.
