CommVault has announced Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager, a software product for automating snapshot management and application-aware recovery.
The introduction comes as the company attempts to support recovery of critical applications and virtual server environments.
“Large enterprise organisations with complex storage environments and the solution providers that advise them need holistic snapshot management for instant recovery of applications and data,” said David West, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Business Development at CommVault.
“Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager’s ease of use cuts recovery times from hours to minutes and reduces cost by eliminating the clutter that customers often have to face in the administration of snapshots.”
Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager offers a point-and-click interface that simplifies management and automates protection of applications from a single console. The lightweight software provides embedded intelligence for granular, rapid recovery of individual files, messages and objects.
With application-consistent recovery of data, IntelliSnap Recovery Manager minimises downtime and enhances productivity, while freeing up IT resources to focus on other priorities.
“Large server virtualisation environments, in particular, have seen a high adoption rate of storage controller snapshots. Many storage system snapshot implementations that are not used in conjunction with additional management modules lack some of the basic features that are taken for granted in a backup application,” said Dave Russell, Vice President of Storage Technologies and Strategies at Gartner.
To meet the demands of today’s heterogeneous environments, the Simpana IntelliSnap Recover Manager software supports the industry’s broadest selection of storage systems without custom scripting, including systems from Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM, NetApp, and Nimble Storage.
IntelliSnap Recovery Manager replaces multiple tools and manual processes, and the breadth of hardware support dramatically improves flexibility, choice and value in storage investments. CommVault continues to expand this growing ecosystem by enabling disk array vendors to integrate their hardware-based snapshots with IntelliSnap technology through the IntelliSnap Connect Programme.
