Fujitsu announces new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault Hyper Scale Software. The new rollout is sought to upfront the benefits of the cloud -in terms of service, agility, resilience, scale and cost – to on-premises backup storage.This new reference architecture is known to be the third data protection solution developed by Fujitsu with Commvault.
Fujtsu confirms that the new enhanced software is a data protection solution based on pre-tested configurations and built with Commvault Hyper Scale Software and Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY industry-standard server systems.
Key Nuggets Include
- Itsimplifies the transformation into private cloud storage, with complete data portability for seamless integration between the public cloud and on-premises environments.
- It brings cloud agility, economics and service levels to on-premisesdata protection and recovery, enabling organizations to build a unified, modern data protection and management platform on a scale-out infrastructure.
Citing on the new rollout, Olivier Delach apelle, Head of Category Management Data Center at Fujitsu in EMEIA, said, “Protecting data against loss has become number one priority in a digital world.However,traditional heterogeneous point solutions for backup and archiving may have slowed down business process transformation due to limited flexibility and hardware choice.We are changing that with our new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault Hyper Scale Software. This replaces legacy data protection architectures with a software-defined solution, based on economical, general purpose, server-based storage. The new architecture boosts agility by consolidating and eliminating data silos, and shrinking the footprint of on-premises hardware – as well as providing that all-important holistic, big-picture view of their data, wherever it’s stored.”
The Fujitsu Reference Architecture for CommvaultHyperScaleSoftwareis designed for organizations that require greater capacity or performance needs than available from an appliance-based approach. Fujitsu uses pre-validated configurations that provide hardware sizes and models for Commvault Hyperscale Software on a unique scale-out infrastructure. This simplified approach reduces both the integration time and risk associated with multiple point solutions, while injecting scalability with predictable economics and performance. Customers gain a fully-tested, easy-to-set-up data protection solution for backing up and archiving data in physical, virtual or cloud-based data centers.
“We welcome Fujitsu to the reference architecture program for Commvault Hyper Scale Software,” said Jonathan Howard, Director, Technical Alliances, Commvault. “Today’s enterprise customers want the agility and economics of the cloud on-premises, so scale out data protection software with Commvault Hyper Scale is highly attractive. Fujitsu’s experience in the enterprise, and the pairing of it’s world class hardware portfolio with Commvault data protection, provide customers with pre-validated solutions to help them gain a fresh approach to data protection and on-premises infrastructures.”
The new reference architecture complements Fujitsu’s wider portfolio of data protection appliance solutions, such as the ETERNUS CS200c and the Commvault Hyper Scale Appliance.
Pricing and availability
The new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault Hyper Scale Software will be available to order in the EMEIA region as of March 2018, and can be purchased directly from Fujitsu and via distribution partners.Pricing depends on system configuration and may vary by country.
