Commvault  has announced new innovations in the Commvault Data Platform to extend snapshot management capabilities to joint enterprise customers through integration with Pure Storage.
Through the innovation of Commvault’s new software, joint Commvault and Pure Storage customers can address the evolving challenges of managing data and information in highly changing, fast-paced global business environments.
The newly launched Commvault Data Platform features IntelliSnap integration with snapshots on the Pure Storage FlashArray, enabling joint customers to perform rapid online recovery from an extended library of application-consistent snapshots. With this integration, customers use Commvault’s Intellisnap technology to orchestrate snapshot management (including recovery operation) while leveraging space-efficient snapshots on the Pure Storage FlashArray for point-in-time copies. One seamless orchestration framework speeds recovery and simplifies administration.
“Line-of-business owners demand a reliable, flexible and resilient infrastructure for their business-critical applications,” says Michael Sotnick, vice-president: Global Channels and Alliances, Pure Storage. “The combination of Pure Storage all-flash arrays with Commvault IntelliSnap software ensures predictable high-performance and reliability across a wide spectrum of applications and operating systems, with minimal administration required by IT staff.”
With snapshot technology one of the fastest and most efficient ways to recover data and applications, customers are looking to integrate the speed of all-flash arrays with the built-in snapshot technologies to deliver on SLAs for recovery. Addressing the demand for extended snapshot management capabilities and all flash-array support, the Commvault Data Platform enables customers to improve production performance for critical applications and hypervisor environments.
“Our next generation software and platform provides customers with a completely orchestrated solution to snapshot and data management,” said Brian Allison, Vice President, Worldwide Alliances, Commvault. “Through this partnership, we’ve made it quicker, easier, and more affordable to harness the power of Pure Storage array-based snapshots, accelerating backup and recovery of applications, systems, virtual machines and data.”
