@CommVault Automates Data Protection for Workloads Running on Amazon Web Services
CommVault - CommVault today announced it has added data management and protection support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) that includes robust cloud reporting as well as self-service virtual machine provisioning, recovery and resource management with snapshot-based data protection. CommVault will be showcasing its cloud capabilities at this week's AWS re:Invent 2014 conference at the Venetian Sands Resort and Convention Center in Las Vegas, November 11-14, in booth No. 1215.

As customers and partners rapidly adopt cloud architectures, CommVault has continued to invest in features that help them manage and protect workloads in the cloud, with particular emphasis on AWS. In addition to existing support for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Glacier, CommVault has introduced automated virtual machine (VM) provisioning and lifecycle management for workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

"CommVault recognized the trend toward cloud computing very early on and made significant investments over the past several years. As a result, we support a very broad set of cloud storage options within our software platform," said CommVault chief operating officer, Al Bunte. "Our automation and optimization features for AWS allow customers, resellers and service providers to further take advantage of the flexible, scalable, pay-as-you-go AWS Cloud to reduce their costs, complexity and risks."

CommVault has also been designated by Amazon Web Services as an Advanced Technology Partner, and a Storage Competency Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN).

"The AWS Partner Network is an extremely important resource for our customers," said Terry Wise, Director of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc.  "CommVault is one of our Advanced Technology Partners with the AWS Storage Competency in backup and archive, and we are excited to see them continue to innovate and improve the capabilities of their storage offerings for AWS customers."

Backup, Archive, and DR with Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier

CommVault Simpana software allows customers and provider partners to unify data protection operations including backup, archive, and disaster recovery (DR) of workloads on AWS. With support for Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier, users can seamlessly migrate data into AWS storage solutions with just a few clicks. Built-in tiering capabilities also allow users to automate data management and retention with AWS, based on pre-defined customizable policies. These solutions enable customers and provider partners to spend less time provisioning capacity and refreshing hardware products, and more time focusing on strategic projects that bring value to their businesses. 

"We have been using AWS as an integral part of our newly implemented disaster recovery strategy, and the unique way that CommVault Simpana software was able to give visibility across all of our on- and off-premise data management processes holistically, was critical for us," said Justin Mason, Information Technology and Web Officer, University of Canberra. "Simpana software is the leading data management solution for AWS integration and has a strong value proposition from a breadth of service perspective that will enable us to scale our services to match the future needs of our staff and students."

VM Backup, Recovery and Management for AWS

CommVault's recently announced Solution Set for VM Backup, Recovery and Cloud Management enables virtual machine administrators and end users to build, protect, and optimize virtualized and cloud infrastructures. While alternative solutions only backup VMs, Simpana software enables application owners and tenants to fully manage their own VM provisioning, management, backup and recovery, retirement and archiving operations on the AWS Cloud - all through a single interface.

CommVault at AWS re:Invent

CommVault will showcase these solutions at AWS re:Invent 2014, AWS' premier technology conference for IT professionals and enterprise developers, in Platinum sponsor booth #1215.

Conference attendees can benefit from CommVault expertise with the presentation of a technical session: "Automating Backup and Archiving with AWS and CommVault," at the Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 11th-14th.
