This week Spectra Logic announced a collaboration with CommVault to significantly lower the cost of data protection, management and access. To remove the complexities of tiered storage, the combined solution provides data management and movement by CommVault Simpana software coupled with exceptionally affordable disk and tape tiers from Spectra Logic.
Organizations worldwide face continuing challenges in managing and protecting their data, particularly with the prevailing desire to retain data for longer, often indefinite periods of time,” said Jeff Echols, senior director, product and solutions marketing, CommVault. “Combining Simpana software, which allows organizations to protect, manage and access information regardless of where the data resides, with Spectra Logic’s highly reliable nTier Verde disk and T-Series tape library platforms, provides customers with very affordable storage and effective, easy to manage data protection, backup and archive.”
Optimized for data-intensive environments, the joint solution provides a scalable, cost effective data management platform that addresses the performance and storage requirements for secure, reliable backup and archive. On the front-end, CommVault Windows CommServe Server provides policy and configuration management, while CommVault Media Agent Servers (Windows, Unix or Linux) intelligently index data copies and serve as data transport engines between backup/archive clients and backend media. On the back-end storage tier, Spectra nTier Verde nearline disk storage and Spectra T-Series Tape Libraries provide dense, low cost, long term data retention, backup and archive.
Massive growth in storing and managing all types of data creates challenges that are driving many organizations to seek enhanced solutions for data protection and long-term storage,” said Bruce Kornfeld, acting chief marketing officer for Spectra Logic. “Pairing the powerful CommVault Simpana platform with Spectra Logic disk and tape technologies provides an extremely scalable, cost effective data management solution that will help organizations of all sizes spend less time and money today and into the future.”
