Commvault has announced Commvault integration and support of the Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor, including Commvault IntelliSnap snapshot management capabilities to simplify protection and recovery for data and virtual machines running on Nutanix.
Today, organizations are looking for datacenter infrastructure for tier 1 applications that can make infrastructure truly invisible, so that IT can focus on the applications and services that power their business. There is also a growing need for modern data protection that aligns to this new infrastructure architecture with a single solution for all hyper visors that is easy, scalable and secure.
The latest enhancements mark the latest step in this partnership, enabling organizations to easily increase predictability, scalability and efficiency when deploying infrastructure in a virtualized environment while leveraging the flexibility to deliver customer-fit SLAs for recovery and easy data access from the Commvault Data Platform. By adding support for the Nutanix Acropolis hyper visor alongside capabilities already available for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, Commvault will be the only data protection software platform that provides hardware snapshot integration and agent less protection for all three hyper visors on Nutanix. This integration, leveraging Commvault IntelliSnap and Nutanix Acropolis Distributed Storage Fabric snapshot functionality, provides customers with the ability to optimize costs by seamlessly leveraging the most appropriate hyper visor, reducing risk and effort in scalable and high-performance solutions.
“Building on our industry-leading work with virtualized environments and snapshots, Commvault is uniquely positioned to bring enhanced data protection and recovery to hyper converged customers using Nutanix Acropolis,” said Brian Allison, VP of Worldwide Alliances, Commvault.
“Commvault has been an early and strong supporter of the Acropolis hypervisor since its launch. IT organizations need holistic data protection and management for their critical enterprise applications. We see Commvault as an ideal partner to provide these important capabilities. Today, Nutanix and Commvault are addressing a critical need in the datacenter”, said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Business Development, Nutanix.
