CommVault today announced immediate support for Hitachi Data Systems Virtual Storage Platform G1000 (VSP G1000) and Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS). Customers can use Hitachi Data Protection Suite with CommVault Simpana IntelliSnap technology to manage array-based snapshots and accelerate recovery for applications, file systems and Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere environments. This development, the industry’s first application-consistent hardware snapshot support for the Hitachi VSP G1000, enables storage customers to more easily adopt modern data recovery techniques that reduce cost, risk and complexity.
As data sets grow in size and business value, hardware snapshot integration plays an increasingly important role in delivering instant application protection and recovery. Together, CommVault and Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) provide enterprises of all sizes with a single view of their data environment, allowing users to easily virtualize and manage disparate silos of storage and data. Global systems integrators are able to simplify design and speed implementation of their complete HDS solution for customers, with backup and recovery software powered by CommVault.
“Building on our decade of engineering experience with Hitachi Data Systems, CommVault supports the new Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 hardware and Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System software platform from day one to automate snapshot management and application-aware recovery,” said Brian Brockway, vice president of worldwide product management, CommVault. “CommVault is committed to offering our joint customers holistic solutions that minimize business disruptions.”
“The deep collaboration between Hitachi Data Systems and CommVault enables enterprises to simplify data recovery and simplify complex environments, as our customers move to a continuous cloud infrastructure,” said Tim Durant, senior director of global ISV alliances and data protection at Hitachi Data Systems. “Having CommVault support across our Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000, Virtual Storage Platform, and Unified Storage VM means HDS and CommVault can help customers quickly realize value from the storage investments they’re making to modernize the data center and become more business-defined.”
Instant Backup and Recovery for Hitachi Enterprise Storage
Next-generation Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform systems and Unified Storage VM systems work with Hitachi Data Protection Suite, powered by CommVault, to deliver backup, archive, recovery, eDiscovery and search capabilities in a single solution, reducing the complexity of managing multiple products. Additionally, Simpana IntelliSnap technology provides an automated approach to protecting data within the array and speeding recovery for applications, file systems and hypervisor platforms to increase application uptime in heterogeneous environments.
With deep Simpana software integration, VSP G1000 customers can simplify management to provision and manage Hitachi Thin Image snapshots and ShadowImage volume copies at the speed of the storage platform and without the need for scripting. They can also automate management of Hitachi Open Remote Copy Manager (HORCM) tasks and replication pair management to reduce deployment time, maximize storage recovery options and minimize downtime.
Hitachi Data Protection Suite, powered by CommVault, for Hitachi VSP G1000 is available immediately from Hitachi Data Systems and a joint network of global resellers, systems integrators and solutions providers. Customers that want to quickly deploy modern data protection integrated with HDS systems can purchase a standalone licensing option for snapshot management today.
