Commvault Delivers Pure Storage Reference Design For Data Protection and Rapid Recovery

Commvault, a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced a new reference design with Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world. This reference design leverages the simplicity, scalability, and agility of Commvault Complete Data Protection and Pure's unified and fast file and object FlashBlade platform to provide high-performance data protection and rapid recovery to customers. Together these solutions make it seamless to backup and manage data in the cloud.

As remote working continues to grow, so too does the increased risk of ransomware and malicious attacks, leading companies around the globe to seek data management solutions that offer protection, recovery, and storage capabilities. At the same time, companies must continue to address SLAs while keeping data accessible and safe, in a cost-effective manner.

To address this need, Commvault and Pure Storage have teamed together to offer a new Pure reference design. The solution leverages Commvault's data protection and Pure's FlashBlade file and object platform, providing customers with a complete solution for protecting, optimizing, restoring, and using data.

As the Data Control plane, Commvault's technology creates a single solution for customers to protect all their data, including VMs, SaaS, cloud workloads, physical workloads, and containers, across both public and private clouds. A cloud-native solution, Commvault also utilizes machine learning to help customers analyze and visualize their data, lowering risk and meeting compliance requirements. With Pure Storage FlashBlade, customers get a simple-to-configure and manage, unified, and fast file and object platform, reducing infrastructure and management costs to meet Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO). With the all-flash performance and high-throughput delivered by FlashBlade, coupled with its built-in SafeMode snapshots feature that creates read-only snapshots of backup data and associated metadata, customers can rapidly restore their data at scale in the event of a disaster or ransomware attack.

"This reference design addresses a critical need for our customers, delivering a cost-optimized solution for backing up, managing, and rapidly restoring data at scale that meets stringent RPOs, RTOs, and SLAs," said Michael Sotnick, VP, Global Alliances, Pure Storage. "In working with Commvault, we are aligned with a proven partner that makes this possible - a simple all-in-one platform, trusted recovery support, and the operational and financial flexibility of a hybrid cloud model."

"As a leader in data backup and recovery, Commvault consistently helps our customers meet the many demands of data management, whether on-prem, in the cloud, or through a hybrid approach," said Mercer Rowe, VP, Global Partner Organization, Commvault. "We are happy to take that one step further with Pure Storage to offer a solution that makes it easier than ever to address the many constraints of data management. With the reference design, customers get the best of both worlds - Commvault's enterprise-grade data management with Pure's modern FlashBlade storage - in a simple and cost-optimized model."
