In our previous blog, we looked at tape and disk storage and how they have served a great purpose to IT, but that however uncomfortable the reality, time is starting to pass them by. Now we look ahead to what’s next, and while it’s often not good to have your head in the clouds, with backup and storage it might in fact be a good thing.
Is it all clear skies?
It must be said that introducing cloud into your backup strategy isn’t without its potential pitfalls, yet if you correctly manage the process it can actually help your IT department meet and surpass its goals.
How cloud is integrated into your backup strategy is, in our view, the key to whether or not it can be a success for your business.
How can you ensure your migration is seamless?
While some solutions simply bolt in cloud services as an add-on, our solution integrates seamlessly with your existing Commvault data management solution. Our experienced team of Commvault consultants will design the service based on your specific requirements and configure this from within your Commvault administrative console.
In practice, this means that you have full control of your cloud data from your existing Commvault administrative console, only you can access that data, you can change your storage policies at any time and browse and restore data seamlessly on demand and with no additional charges for egress or need for third party software. This integrated backup and recovery approach is also worth considering from the security perspective, since you don’t need to expose your network to any external gateways or appliances.
What’s the solution?
Unlike conventional flying, our cloud backup provides completely clear skies in order that you can see exactly what’s what. You can validate the status of your backups with real-time information, monitor your cloud storage target and the progress of the tasks, and receive confirmation and any next steps when the backup process has been completed.
With Cloud Store, there’s no ‘hoping’ your backups have worked – you’ll know exactly what’s going on throughout the process.
PAV provides a solution specifically for Commvault customers that is highly resilient, scalable and offers secure Cloud based Storage. It is simple, cost-effective and designed specifically for storing business data offsite.
