Computerworld - Storage vendor NetApp said today it can now support all types of backup through a single interface as a result of a reseller agreement with CommVault and will offer its SnapProtect branded software, a package of CommVault's Simpana 9's snapshot copies, replication and tape management software.
Simpana is CommVault's flagship backup software. Through it, backups can be stored in a tiered fashion. For example, snapshots may be stored first on a primary disk array during the day and moved to a near-line array until it's time to archive them to a tape library at an offsite disaster recovery facility or into a cloud storage provider.
As part of the deal, CommVault's SnapProtect software will be closely integrated with NetApp SnapVault and SnapMirror products, the company's archiving and replication software.
