Rapid, Simplified Data Protection and Recovery from Any Storage Tier

  • A core Simpana software feature, CommVault's SnapProtect enabler for Dell Compellent SANs can be leveraged by both new and existing customers to enhance protection of Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, and Windows, file system environments. Automated storage policies drive secondary protection copies to deduplicated disk, tape or cloud storage for longer-term retention while reducing data lifecycle costs and compliance demands.
  • With automated policies and tight API integration developed jointly by Dell and CommVault, users simply select the Compellent Replay option, eliminating the traditional complexity of coordinating actions, mapping application structures, creating, validating and aging off expired snapshots. Users also can monitor a consistent set of application and file system protection policies within a centralized management console to minimize operations, alerting and reporting efforts.
  • Leveraging SnapProtect for Virtual Server Agent, Simpana software and Dell Compellent delivers the performance needed to protect even the largest, most demanding virtual server environments. Protecting hundreds of VM's in a matter of minutes while creating rapid-fire, persistent, recovery copies. These Dell Compellent hardware snapshot-based recovery copies are created with minimal impact on production systems.
  • End-to-end policies simplify the creation and automate the movement of selective copies across tertiary tiers of disk, tape and cloud storage to meet organizational needs while reducing total cost of ownership. Users no longer need to track uncoordinated data movement across legacy backup tools as every data copy is accounted for under Simpana software's singular approach to data management and embedded reporting capabilities to streamline auditing, costing and charge-back reporting.
  • The Simpana SnapProtect client ensures application-consistent recovery copies to simplify recoveries from any copy of application data while eliminating the traditional complexities of recovering applications from snapshots, transaction logs and offline copies. To accelerate recoveries, users simply pick a point in time from the protection client collection to restore the application without the need to rewrite files and data into a usable application instance.
  • SnapProtect offers one-pass backup with multi-option restore operations and one-click recovery features expedite restores of entire storage volumes, distinct application stores and critical folder/file groups. Simpana software's offline mining tools also support the ability to select granular messages, documents or Active Directory components from database snapshot copies.
