Commvault can bring greater level of data protection to datacentre environment running on Red Hat Virtualization 4 software

US headquartered Commvault, world’s leading enterprise backup, recovery, and archive software provider, has signed up with Red Hat— world’s leading provider of open source software platform—for supporting information infrastructure powered by Red Hat Virtualization 4 solution. By integrating Commvault, customers can implement a unified data protection strategy for workloads running on Red Hat Virtualization 4 for a cloud centric environment.
“Modern enterprises today are embracing open source virtualization strategies that give their teams the upper hand in workload customization and freedom while maximizing their existing hardware investments to run workloads more efficiently,” said Brian Allison, Vice President of Worldwide Alliances, Commvault.
Red Hat Virtualization 4, the newest release from Red Hat helps address the increasing costs and complexities of proprietary virtualization solutions by providing a fully-open, high-performance, more secure and centralized management platform for both Linux- and Windows-based workloads. Built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Virtualization 4 is designed to more easily integrate with existing IT investments while providing a foundation for emerging technology deployments, including containerized and cloud-native applications.
“We’re thrilled to be launching Red Hat Virtualization 4 with greater virtual data protection and file level restorability from Commvault,” said Scott Herold, Product Manager, Virtualization Business, Red Hat Inc. “Through our integration with Commvault, customers can adopt virtual workload protection strategies that give them flexibility and scalability to be more fluid in today’s highly disrupted, fast-paced global business environment”, viewed Herold.
Red Hat Virtualization 4 is available as a standalone offering, as an integrated offering with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and as part of the Red Hat Cloud Suite comprehensive solution.

Commvault’s repertoire for Red Hat Virtualization includes:

• Integrates with the Red Hat Virtualization Manager and uses native APIs to perform all necessary functions.
• Offers the ability to perform complete VM image backups without disruption of the running workloads.
• Protection operations are policy driven and leverage an auto discovery mechanism that intelligently maps the right VMs to the correct policy.
• Protection operations automatically and dynamically distribute the load across the KVM hosts. Backup proxies (which are VMs themselves) can more easily scale as needed, and as an aggregate are able to intelligently allocate streams to process VMs in a more efficient manner.
• Client side deduplication enables customers to reduce the data transfer to the Commvault backup library, helping to expedite the backup process and reduce impact to networks and the space required for virtual machine backup data copies which can be stored to disk, tape, or a cloud library.
• Commvault’s hot-add methodology for protecting virtual machines makes it easier for customers to deploy and to scale-out while still being centrally managed through a single operational console.
• There are no explicit limits on the size of backups, number of virtual machines, or size of virtual machines that can be backed up.
