"As a result of our IntelliSnap Connect Program, CommVault and Nimble Storage will make the benefits of snapshot technology for data backup and recovery more accessible and practical for customers contending with too much data and too little time to back up and recover it," said Jeff Echols, Senior Director of Marketing and Business Development, CommVault. "As part of the IntelliSnap Connect Partner ecosystem, CommVault and Nimble CS-series storage arrays provide seamless data protection for enterprises, helping ensure their data is always available when they need it."
"Nimble's highly efficient snapshots have helped numerous customers circumvent the cost and complexity of dealing with traditional backup. With the CommVault partnership, customers can leverage the efficiency and performance of hardware based snapshots as well as benefit from the rich management feature set of the Simpana software," said
Suresh Vasudevan, CEO of Nimble Storage.
"ESG's research clearly shows that IT is looking to change their strategies for data protection. With an average of 86 percent backup success and only 80 percent of recoveries completing within RTO/RPO SLA's, folks have to change in order to get better results. For many, supplementing traditional backup and recovery with snapshotting and replication is the right approach," said Jason Buffington, senior data protection analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "Considering CommVault's pedigree in application protection, along with its long-standing experience of integrating with storage vendors, its introduction of the IntelliSnap program and partnering with newer storage players looks like a great fit for both sides."
"As a mutual customer of Nimble and CommVault, we are very excited about the integration of Nimble snapshots with CommVault's IntelliSnap technology," said Matthew Anderson, IT Director for RPI Print. "This gives us the ability to take frequent snapshot-based backups, and couple that with the ease of use and management capabilities that IntelliSnap provides, delivering a win-win."
