READING, England, July 30, 2012 PRNewswire/ -- CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) -- CommVault and Fujitsu today expanded their partnership to deliver integrated hardware snapshots and replication for Fujitsu ETERNUS DX storage arrays powered by CommVault® Simpana® 9 software. The integrated solution offers modern data management capabilities for enterprises of all sizes to protect their most demanding virtual and physical environments and enable nearly instant data recovery without impacting performance.
CommVault offers technology access and open, unified hardware snapshot management across multiple storage systems as part of its IntelliSnap™ Connect Program. As a result of these innovations and its Solving Forward® vision, CommVault is enabling high-performance storage vendors such as Fujitsu to integrate their array-based snapshot solutions with the hardware snapshot data protection module in CommVault Simpana® software.
CommVault® Simpana® 9 software's compatibility with Fujitsu ETERNUS DX S2 Series storage systems, reduces the cost, complexity and risk associated with hardware snapshot management by eliminating the need to create and maintain scripts or manage numerous storage array tools and consoles. By automating snapshot copies of data using the ETERNUS DX S2 Series and CommVault Simpana software, backup times can be slashed without impacting production. Fujitsu customers can also use Simpana software to copy data from ETERNUS DX systems to ETERNUS CS data protection appliances, delivering a powerful yet economical combination of short-term data protection with long-term data retention, on disk, tape or the cloud.The centralized management of application data across disk and tape storage also lets customers reap the efficiency and performance benefits of a tiered storage strategy by incorporating Fujitsu's scalable, ETERNUS DX disk storage family, which ranges from entry-level arrays to high-end data center-class systems. Customers can facilitate fast, granular recoveries of individual objects, files, whole volumes or entire applications with robust support for Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and SAP databases and Windows, Linux, and Unix file systems. As part of the partnership, Fujitsu – one of the world's largest IT service providers – offers pre- and post-sales services for Simpana software and collaborates with CommVault to provide maintenance services.
