Amazon Web Services (AWS) Data Management

Move, Manage and Use Your Data with Commvault on AWS

Your ability to achieve digital transformation depends on an effective cloud strategy. Whether your initiatives involve a cloud-first or cloud-only approach, you need to be able to move, manage and use data in a way that promotes business agility and contains costs. This includes optimizing both your data and infrastructure management operations to avoid service outages and security risks.

Your current processes aren't helping you achieve these goals in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment. Before you can spin up a cloud instance and securely move or backup data, you must find the data first. You have to manually search through separate storage, archive and other indexes to locate it. The result of this effort can be delays, errors and higher costs.


AWS + Commvault: Stronger Together


Leveraging Cloud to Its Fullest Potential

You need to consistently meet SLAs across your hybrid and cloud environment, so you can be more responsive to the business. To promote greater agility, you need to be able to spin up a cloud instance and move data to it without creating data management and security issues. It's also critical that you're able to easily and cost-effectively backup and recover data—wherever it lives. In the end, you need to employ cloud so that it seamlessly extends your data center and allows you to reap the full benefits.
