Commvault, a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, has launched new reference architectures for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable customers to simplify data protection and management with a pre-optimized, easy to deploy, and validated solution.
Available through Commvault direct and on AWS Marketplace, the reference architectures provide enterprises with clear guidance on how the Commvault Data Platform can help organizations optimize their use of the AWS Cloud for backup, archive and recovery. Commvault also announced that existing customers can apply their licenses to applications enabled through AWS Marketplace. Additionally, customers will have the ability to easily direct data storage to specific AWS services – such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon S3 Standard – Infrequent Access (Amazon S3-IA) and Amazon Glacier.
The validated Commvault reference architectures with AWS further simplify hybrid infrastructure data protection for Commvault customers while also reducing cost, improving agility and speeding deployment of Commvault Software with the AWS Cloud for backup, archive and recovery.
“AWS and Commvault share a commitment to helping enterprises incorporate the cloud into their data protection strategies,” said Terry Wise, Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “The launch of these new validated reference architectures from Commvault further simplifies the use of the Commvault Data Platform with the AWS Cloud for our joint customers, helping them to accelerate the implementation of data protection projects that lower operating and capital expenses while still providing reliable, secure and quick access to their business data.”
Dow Jones, a subsidiary of News Corp and global provider of news and business information, was one of the first Commvault customers to go through a business transformation workshop and review the reference architecture guide.
“Customers are increasingly migrating applications to the cloud, adding complexity to the existing infrastructure. Commvault’s improved reference architecture helps organizations to simplify and manage their existing cloud infrastructure, enhance data protection and minimize data duplication during backup and recovery processes,” said Owen Taraniuk, Theatre Vice President, APAC & Japan, Commvault.
