CommVault is shipping an integrated cloud storage connector for its Simpana software platform designed to enable customers to move on-premises backup and archive data into, and out of, private and public cloud storage without complex scripting or the addition of disparate cloud gateway appliances. With the addition of this new connector, the Simpana software can treat cloud storage providers as simply another target storage destination, along with onsite disk, VTL, and optical devices.
The upgraded Simpana platform provides enterprises with a single platform to simplify the movement, protection, deduplication, archiving, and e-discovery of all types of data, including Oracle and SAP databases, Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint systems, and virtualized data, the vendor says. With Simpana, customers can deploy embedded data deduplication and encryption modules. To help meet compliance and e-discovery needs, CommVault says its customers can also add Simpana Search to index data prior to performing e-discovery analysis.
With the new cloud connector, all of these capabilities can now be extended to cloud storage architectures. Simpana now integrates with cloud storage providers including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and Nirvanix, and CommVault also says it plans to integrate these capabilities with EMC and Iron Mountain.
