Commvault has announced ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS, a scale-out data protection solution combining Commvault HyperScale Software with Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS). ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS provides enterprises a single, integrated solution that delivers infrastructure simplicity, elasticity, resiliency, flexibility and scale for managing secondary data, while replacing legacy back-up tools with a modern cloud-enabled data management solution.
According to the firm, the announcement builds upon the recent launch of Commvault HyperScale Technology, two powerful, cloud-ready data infrastructure offerings – an all-in-one appliance and a reference architecture model – that provide customers with a new level of management simplicity and scale for managing secondary data on premises. As the first solution launched as a Commvault HyperScale Software reference architecture, ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS delivers these benefits as well as seamless integration with storage arrays, hypervisors, applications and the full range of cloud provider solutions to support the most diverse and dynamic enterprise and hybrid cloud environments.
“The combination of Cisco and Commvault continue to deliver world class Data Protection solutions to our customers leveraging our extensive Data Center Portfolio,” said Satinder Sethi, VP, Unified Computing System and Datacenter Solutions, Cisco. “For the new Commvault ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS solution, Cisco brings a proven Fabric Based Data Centre architecture and turn key management that has delivered exceptional value to our customers and partners in their data centre modernisation journey.”
ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS is available to customers through the Cisco SolutionsPlus programme and will be available directly from Cisco’s Global Price List, making it easy for Cisco and its network of resellers to sell and deliver to the market. Commvault joins the Cisco SolutionsPlus Programme at a time when enterprise and midmarket customers are facing increased data challenges fueled by the exponential growth in the amount of data to store, manage and analyse, and the ever-increasing risk of security breaches.
“We are excited that the industry leader in data centre infrastructure and the industry leader in data protection have worked together to create a solution that delivers a new level of simplicity, elasticity, resiliency, flexibility and scale for managing secondary data,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, Commvault. “ScaleProtect with UCS, the powerful combination of Commvault HyperScale Technology and the computing and networking power of Cisco UCS, provides unparalleled performance and cost effectiveness for a range of use cases, including data centre consolidation, infrastructure modernisation, digital transformation, growing multiple location footprints, and business-critical application and dev/test performance.”
