Commvault HyperScale™ Technology for Data Protection


You don't want to constantly worry about data risk and complexity because your legacy architecture can't keep up. Instead, you want to evolve your on-premises environment so that it mirrors the business benefits you've achieved using cloud. When that happens, you'll have a modern data protection platform that can store and protect your data for years to come.

To get here, you need to deal with some key challenges.

Webinar: 5 Benefits of Scale-Out Data Protection

Inefficiencies From An Outdated, Scale-Up Strategy

Your scale-up approach to managing and protecting data, including secondary storage, can be directly linked to:

  • Constrained services to business users as single-purpose devices and data silos limit capabilities and growth
  • Complicated management, tools and operations due to disparate point products and no integration among applications, data and infrastructure
  • Rising costs and resource utilization as IT staff spend more time designing and building resiliency and availability for storage devices or data silos
  • Inflexible scaling that results in time-consuming and risky forklift upgrades involving manual steps
  • Confusion about where data is, who's using it and whether or not it's protected

Adding more hardware and IT staff isn't a sustainable solution. You may be overbuying capacity to address future requirements or underestimating your needs, which leads to more spending down the road. Meanwhile, you're moving forward without tackling the core issue: an outdated data protection strategy built on a scale-up infrastructure.


Many IT departments do not realize that more that 70% of their data lives in secondary storage.1

A Fresh Approach to Solving Data Protection Challenges

With Commvault HyperScale solutions, you can build a unified, modern data protection and management platform that delivers cloud-like services on-premises.

By building these services on a scale-out infrastructure and leveraging Commvault capabilities, you'll enable:

  • Cloud-like agility, resiliency and availability to on-premises data and applications
  • Greater end-user efficiency with automation and self-service capabilities
  • Improved hardware utilization and optimized costs from general-purpose hardware
  • Seamless storage scalability with predictable performance without requiring forklift upgrades
  • Better, more secure data protection, utilization and movement by eliminating point product and data silos

You can implement your scale-out data protection solution in one of two ways:

Commvault HyperScale™ Software

You can implement Commvault HyperScale Software on a scale-out infrastructure based on your own hardware preferences. You have a choice of hardware configuration sizes and models from leading technology companies. This frees you to leverage your existing hardware partner relationships and ensure consistency throughout your environment. You'll also benefit from Commvault Validated Reference Designs, which deliver tested configurations that provide validated designs complemented by best-practice configurations. This simplified approach helps you accelerate ROI, reduce complexity and add greater customer value. Meanwhile, Commvault HyperScale Software seamlessly scales, stores and protects petabytes of data to support your environment.

Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance

Commvault HyperScale Appliance is a data protection solution that tightly integrates compute, storage, full lifecycle data protection and analytics into a single platform across the data center and the cloud. Built on Commvault's industry-leading technology, it allows you to significantly decrease complexity and cost while increasing both scalability and IT agility. Because this solution is pre-designed, built, sold and supported by Commvault, you'll save time in hardware acquisition, installation and integration, daily management and patching and updating. Plus, you'll enjoy streamlined, single-call support for the entire solution. With the Commvault HyperScale Appliance, you'll have a simple, easy-to-use solution for data protection starting at 48TB.

Bringing a scale-out infrastructure to the Commvault Data Platform, HyperScale Software integrates with storage arrays, hypervisors, applications and the full range of cloud provider solutions to support the most diverse and dynamic environments.
