BANGALORE, INDIA: Quantum Corp., a proven global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced it is extending its object storage offerings by joining with CommVault to provide a unique solution for converged backup and archive in the data center.
Based on Quantum' Lattus object storage technology and CommVault Simpana 10 software, the validated solution enables a comprehensive data protection and archive strategy that reduces primary storage costs and optimizes backup performance while minimizing management complexity, administrative overhead and capital expenditures in multi-petabyte environments.
Quantum Lattus provides nearline access to archived data across global locations in a highly scalable and cost-effective disk-based solution that never requires a "forklift" upgrade - a forever disk archive. Lattus offers much greater durability than traditional RAID offerings, including true self-healing and self-protection capabilities, and enables automatic multi-site protection without the need for replication. The result is a highly resilient, disaster tolerant, scalable archival repository that doesn't need to be backed up.
CommVault Simpana unifies backup, archive, reporting and disaster recovery (DR) on a single software platform, providing a converged data management solution to control cost and risk. With the combination of Quantum Lattus-D and CommVault Simpana, enterprises can now store a single instance of archive data on Lattus and be confident that it is retained in a manner that can exceed the protection offered by traditional redundant copy data protection schemes. Customers can also benefit from low-latency access delivered on a global scale.
Lattus-D capitalizes on Simpana's comprehensive backup, archive and DR management capabilities, easily integrating with Simpana via an S3 REST interface. In turn, Simpana software leverages the native Lattus REST API to offer cloud archive technology for petabyte-scale environments and simple, automated data movement and management. As a result, data center customers can realize the benefits of private cloud storage.
