CommVault's new release of its data management platform Simpana 9 provides more granular recovery options, reduces network traffic and also offers migration tools from competitive platforms such as those from Symantec and IBM.
Commvault's Simpana 9 data management software "bridges the physical storage world and the rapidly emerging virtual one" by adding four major new functions including generation three deduplication extended to the source level, support for Xen virtualization platforms, simplified migration tools, and better protection of snap backups.
The result is Simpana 9, which Commvault is launching this week, a platform that enables channel partners to speed up recovery of virtual machines, eliminate redundant data, produce faster back up and recoveries, cut storage-related costs and migrate from competitive systems such as Symantec NetBackup and Tivoli Storage Manager, the company said.
