New, deeper integration of Hitachi Data Protection Suite, powered by CommVault, with Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) and Unified Storage VM systems helps increase storage efficiency and automates data backup and recovery for application, file systems and hypervisor platforms. The high-speed recovery of data can lower operating and capital expenses, reduce complexity and risk for Hitachi Data Systems storage customers. They can also deploy Simpana-based hardware snapshot and copy management as a standalone option or integrated with the complete Hitachi Data Protection Suite, which also embeds backup, content-aware retention, deduplication, eDiscovery and search functionality into a single software platform.
“CommVault is committed to driving up efficiency and driving out costs for the enterprise through our vision for modern data management and single software platform architecture,”
“CommVault continues to deliver innovative data protection technology that our customers demand for emerging use cases and data-intensive environments, whether on premises or in the cloud,” said Mike Walkey, senior VP of global partners and alliances at Hitachi Data Systems. “The enhanced Simpana software features and flexible deployment help Hitachi Data Systems storage customers increase the availability of their data while reducing risks and costs for their business.”
