CommVault launches Simpana 10, adds Cloud support

Back-up vendor releases latest edition of its data management software platform

CommVault has released version 10 of its data management software platform, Simpana.

The solution enables businesses to repurposes data and values from mobile devices, Cloud computing and Big Data to enable collaboration and better decision making.

While the latest version of Simpana is said to have more than 300 new features, CommVault A/NZ systems engineering director, Michael Porfirio, selects OnePass as the standout capability, especially since email and Exchange support has been added.

“One issue that customers have had with archiving in the past is that they felt they needed separate infrastructure, a separate agent on top of the back-up one, manage two different environments, and then run two different scans to pull data out,” he said.

“So while they say they see value in archiving, they found the whole process too hard.” OnePass is supposed to gets rid of all of those concerns, with Porfirio quoting a 50 per cent reduction in doing a back-up and archive with Simpana 10.

“You’re going to back up the data anyway, and the data you back-up is the one you want to archive as well,” he said.

For that reason, Simpana 10 has been designed to “take the pain out” of archiving.

“It’s not really like archiving, as people just need to tick boxes on what items they want to archive,” Porfirio said.

Simpana 10 then moves the data into storage, even if it is in the Cloud on services such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

With this level of Cloud support in Simpana 10, Porfirio said a lot of channel partners and MSPs are building their Cloud environments based on the product.

“The reason they are doing it is that the amount of services they can offer back to their customers, and it makes life a lot easier,” he said.

Simpana 10 is available now through CommVault’s PartnerAdvantage network of Australian distribution, channel and OEM partners.
