BANGALORE, INDIA: CommVault have started shipping an integrated cloud storage connector for its Simpana software.

Storage-as-a-service: Cloud Storage

This will enable customers to move on-premises back-up and archive data securely, reliably and transparently into, and out of, private and public cloud storage without complex scripting or the addition of costly, disparate cloud gateway appliances.

With Simpana software, customers can deploy embedded data deduplication and encryption modules to further reduce data management costs while securing the delivery and recovery of data stored in the cloud.

CommVault Simpana software will take advantage of native REST over HTTP connectivity to ensure tight integration with application programming interfaces (APIs) from Amazon S3, EMC Atmos, Iron Mountain’s Archive Services Platform, Microsoft Azure and Nirvanix SDN.

Additional cooperation between CommVault and its cloud storage partners enables seamless tech support for joint customers.

Shifting to a storage-as-a-service model is straightforward as CommVault customers simply create a storage policy to select cloud storage as a target. This eliminates time-consuming custom scripting or the need for disparate cloud-gateway appliances that lack application awareness.

CommVault’s modular Simpana software platform enables organizations to secure data in-flight or at rest within the storage cloud by adding embedded FIPS-certified encryption.

Existing customers with active maintenance contracts can download the latest CommVault Service Pack and immediately integrate with CommVault’s cloud service provider partners to streamline data tiering to the cloud.

N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, CommVault, said: “The new economics of IT are compelling organizations around the globe to consider cloud-based solutions to reduce ever-increasing data storage infrastructure costs.”

New and existing Simpana software customers can leverage cloud-based, Farline data storage with Amazon, Microsoft and Nirvanix immediately by simply purchasing a per-terabyte capacity license from CommVault that allows them to easily store data on-premises or in the cloud.

Customers will need to have an established account with one of the cloud providers of choice. Customers also will be able to take advantage of the cloud connector to utilize cloud storage services from EMC and Iron Mountain at a future date.
