CommVault Introduces New Simpana Solution Sets Including Automated Cloud Data Management

- New automated provisioning and management of cloud infrastructure enables CommVault customers to quickly adopt private, hybrid and public clouds

OCEANPORT, N.J., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) today announced new Simpana® cloud management capabilities and Simpana Solution Sets designed to transform how companies of all sizes protect, manage and maximize the value of business information amidst a rising tide of data and compliance requirements. 

CommVault the leader in modern data and information management software.

As enterprises deploy private and hybrid clouds to increase business agility, the new Simpana Solution Sets are designed to speed cloud adoption and data center modernization by delivering next-generation software innovations. Supporting mobile productivity and improved self-service access, the Simpana Solution Sets help customers lower cost and reduce risk with enhanced data and information management for all leading cloud, hypervisor and storage platforms. 

With its industry-leading support of the most cloud storage platforms, CommVault has added capabilities for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure that include robust cloud reporting as well as end user self-service provisioning, recovery, software snapshots and virtual machine resource management.

"CommVault recognized the trend toward cloud computing very early on and has made significant investments in cloud computing over the past seven years. Today, we are the leading supplier for over 200 managed service and cloud providers," said CommVault CEO Bob Hammer. "Our extensive experience providing leading data and information management capabilities helps our customers as they transition to cloud-based and managed service-based environments. We make it easier and more cost effective for businesses to achieve data management, compliance and mobile computing objectives."

Simpana Software Solution Sets for any Infrastructure
The new Simpana solution sets can be individually deployed or combined as part of a comprehensive data protection and information management solution. The following new and cloud-enhanced Simpana Solution Sets are available worldwide today:

Simpana for VM Backup, Recovery and Cloud Management enables virtual machine administrators and end users to build, protect and optimize virtualized and cloud infrastructure.

  • In contrast to point solutions that only back up VMs, Simpana software enables application owners and tenants to manage their own VM provisioning, management, backup, recovery, retirement and archiving operations through a single interface across platforms. These include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Hyper-V and VMware and Citrix XenServer.
  • Pricing is available with new licensing options of per socket or per 10-VM pack. Unlike competitive offerings, the Simpana VM solution set includes metrics reporting, global deduplication, and deduplication-aware replication, instant VM recovery, and 1 year of maintenance.

Simpana IntelliSnap® Recovery unifies and streamlines application-aware hardware snapshot, replication and recovery to make data assets fully available as size and complexity grow.

  • Customers can automatically manage hardware-based snapshots for the largest physical and virtualized application infrastructures.
  • New Simpana software integration for arrays and applications, including NetApp, HDS and Oracle.
  • Pricing for data protection snapshot, replication and remote services options are based on usable capacity or array-attached bundles.

Simpana for Endpoint Data Protection helps protect and enable the mobile workforce by efficiently backing-up devices and providing secure access and self-service search capabilities.

  • New features for secure file and folder sharing, data loss prevention and device upload support secure data protection and collaboration.
  • Reduce risk and costs with integrated eDiscovery and legal hold across all managed data.
  • Endpoint backup, file sharing and search solutions are licensed per user.

Simpana for Email Archive increases productivity, reduces compliance risk, and improves insights by integrating self-service access, simplified eDiscovery and legal hold, and cost-effective long-term retention.

  • Built-in analytics improve storage planning and decision-making for email archiving policies.
  • The new solution set can be deployed in on-premises, private or hybrid cloud environments, with support for Microsoft Office 365, Outlook, and Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes.
  •  Email Archive is licensed per mailbox and includes flexible archive, search and compliance options.                  

In addition to new licensing options, traditional capacity licensing is also available. More information on new features, functionality and pricing can found in the Simpana Solution Set Fact Sheet.
