Cloud data specialist Commvault has announced the launch of NetApp Scale-out Data Protection (SDP), designed to provide expanded rapid recovery support for critical data across NetApp’s hybrid-enabled systems.

Powered by Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery, the solution leverages the NetApp portfolio to provide users with snapshot management, backup and disaster recovery functionality.

NetApp SDP combines NetApp’s HCI, All-Flash-FAS and storageGRID with Commvault software to deliver a “complete package” that protects critical cloud applications – including quick and effective deployment, easy scale and on-premises object storage.

Commvault said its vast support for array and cloud snapshots, as well as a full set of application and VM APIs, help simplify the protection of hybrid cloud environments by delivering fast and reliable RPO/RTO, while also incorporating long-term retention in an integrated cloud tier.

“When downtime occurs, access and recoverability of critical data, specifically in a cloud environment, critically impacts an organisations ability to maintain business operations and meet SLAs,” commented Ranga Rajagopalan, Vice President of Product Management at Commvault.

“We’re proud to partner with NetApp’s entire storage portfolio to deliver a solution that meets today’s expectation for performance, simplicity, scale, and cost, integrating both on-prem and public cloud deployments.”

The move is the latest development in a partnership that has lasted for more than 20 years, providing 1,200 customers with critical data protection through Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery and NetApp’s range of on-premises and cloud storage solutions.

The pair say the combination of technology allows customers to migrate, simplify, as well as convert their critical data and workloads to their preferred cloud provider, helping to maximise their investment.

“Commvault and NetApp’s Longstanding partnership offers customers the reliability and simplicity of an engineered backup and recovery solution leveraging the strength of the NetApp portfolio,” said Brett Roscoe, vice president of Product Management at NetApp.

“The launch of SDP provides our joint customers with a simple, turn-key solution that uses NetApp HCI to enhance the scalability and robustness of the Commvault software in protecting their most critical data across hybrid cloud environments.”
