CommVault Partnership


Dell and CommVault have joined forces to create a fully integrated, automated and flexible approach to data and information management. Combining CommVault's unified Simpana® software with Dell technologies has enabled a scalable, agile architecture for even the most heterogeneous environments. Integrating Dell™ EqualLogic™, Dell Compellent™, Dell DX Object Storage Platform and PowerVault™ backup appliances with CommVault Simpana software delivers a cohesive, high-availability solution to your data management and protection needs.

  • EqualLogic
  • DX Object

From initial write to offsite archive, Dell Compellent and CommVault ensure high availability and continuous data protection. Granular block- and file-level intelligence combine for optimal storage efficiency, flexibility and control. Dell Compellent Thin Provisioning and CommVault Deduplication maximize storage resource utilization. Dell Compellent integrates with CommVault to provide time- consistent snapshots using Data Instant Replay for Windows applications and VMware virtual machines (VMs). Indexed archive allows administrators to recall data on demand. And dynamic tiering of primary and secondary storage fine-tunes data placement throughout its lifecycle.

From a single interface, Simpana software and the Simpana SnapProtect™ module leverage the EqualLogic™ PS Series array to provide unified creation, access and control of application-consistent snapshots. Simpana software’s unique integration with the PS Series array enables customers to initiate the creation of multiple snapshot recovery copies and select any one of these copies to execute off-host nightly protection to deduplicated disk, tape or cloud storage tiers for long-term retention. This unique ability is driven through a single policy without the need for scripting.

CommVault® Simpana® software and the Dell™ DX Object Storage Platform delivers a Retention Lifecycle Management (RLM) solution providing a policy-driven approach to the archiving of data. In other words, Simpana and DX can preserve records of business, deduplicate them from the source, classify and align them to retention policies. All your data protection and information management needs are managed through a single architecture, single pane of glass across all locations. No need for multiple products, interfaces, and data sets to handle your archiving for compliance and storage consolidation needs.
