Commvault and NetApp partner on new data protection platform

Cloud data specialist Commvault has announced the launch of NetApp Scale-out Data Protection (SDP). It says it is designed to provide expanded rapid recovery support for critical data across NetApp’s hybrid-enabled systems.

The pair say that the move is the latest development in a partnership that has lasted for over 20 years, providing 1,200 customers with  data protection through Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery and NetApp’s range of on-premises and cloud storage solutions.

Powered by Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery, the thing uses  the NetApp portfolio to provide people with snapshot management, backup and disaster recovery functionality.

NetApp SDP combines NetApp’s HCI, All-Flash-FAS and storageGRID with Commvault software to deliver a “complete package” that protects critical cloud applications – including quick and effective deployment, easy scale and on-premises object storage, it is claimed.

Commvault said its support for array and cloud snapshots, as well as a full set of application and VM APIs, help simplify the protection of hybrid cloud “environments” by delivering RPO/RTO, while also incorporating long-term retention in an integrated cloud tier.

Ranga Rajagopalan, Vice President of Product Management at Commvault said: “We’re proud to partner with NetApp’s entire storage portfolio to deliver a solution that meets today’s expectation for performance, simplicity, scale, and cost, integrating both on-prem and public cloud deployments.”
