1. Manages Rapidly Growing Data Storage Demand
The rapid growth of data and related storage is putting even more pressure on IT staffs grappling with too much data to protect. Backup and recovery is becoming increasingly complex, cutting into staff time and budgets and slowing operations. Numerous data consumers are demanding access to information, resulting in multiple data copies. It is time for a new strategy, for an approach that is robust enough to meet today's data and information management challenges, and those of tomorrow.
Modern Data Protection from Commvault, which has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner's “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances” report for five years in a row, meets the needs of the seemingly unstoppable data growth by starting with a single platform, rather than point-level products, to unify all data under management. By leveraging multiple data reduction methods along with easy data sharing, Commvault relieves the pressure on storage resources, improves efficiency and lowers overall costs.
2. Reduces Operational Complexity
Is there an IT manager today who wouldn’t want to simplify the data and information management process? Unfortunately, that can't happen with traditional backup and recovery systems developed in a time before big data. A holistic approach, based on a core platform, creates new efficiencies sorely needed to manage demands – and expectations – for solid data protection. Some of the ways in which Commvault software reduces complexity is by eliminating manual scripting and processes; automating tasks that discover, deploy, and protect within your environment, and leveraging policy-based data protection and management. And there is the ultimate benefit: less complexity frees you to focus more of your time and resources on your organization's broader business goals.
3. Understands Your Data Better
Another inevitable byproduct of the data explosion is the proliferation of redundant data that has occurred, leading to excessive demands on network, storage and management resources. Simply put, traditional backup systems are not equipped to handle the current volume of data that exists. More modern data protection solutions provide the granularity that is needed to understand and better protect your data, reducing the risk of loss, at the same time increasing efficiency by not “One point squarely in Commvault’s favor is the software’s ability to manage a wide variety of disk arrays, tape devices, and cloud repositories. That capability can help an organization to establish and maintain one data repository for all end-users, regardless of how heterogeneous existing infrastructure components may be.” Commvault’s in-depth knowledge of applications and file systems gives you the granularity needed for optimal data movement and storage and enabling consistent recovery of your data.
4. Lowers the Cost of Data Management
Systems cobbled together over time are rife with inefficiencies and processes that operate too slowly to accommodate a data world growing as quickly as ours. Commvault software gives you the dual benefit of a single platform from which to manage data and scale as needed, and the ability to also leverage your existing investments more efficiently, thus reducing storage and storage management costs. You will be able to delay costly storage and network upgrades, and enable additional storage options, such as more cost-effective DAS, SAN and NAS disk tiers, tape, cloud and object-based storage to meet your needs.
5. Easily Scalable Single Core Platform
Commvault’s modern data protection solution is the answer to scalability to accommodate growth. It contains individually licensable modules—all built on a single unifying code base and platform—to analyze, replicate, protect, archive, and search your enterprise data and information. By leveraging the strengths of a single platform, each module, deployed alone or in combination with other modules, delivers unsurpassed feature-for-feature performance against alternative point-level solutions. Commvault not only solves your current data management challenges but also builds in technology so you’re poised to meet future demands. If you and your IT staff are experiencing the stress of big data demand and requirements, pressure to streamline backup and recovery, and watch the budget, talk to Commvault about how you can move into a more efficient and cost-conscious data protection system.
