Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

Dell Adds AppAssure to Its Storage Portfolio

March 05, 2012 09:00 AM
Dell recently announced the acquisition of AppAssure, which it describes as a next-generation data protection solution because it deals not only with physical IT assets, but also with virtual and cloud environments. Dell plans to integrate the AppAssure software product with its Fluid Data architecture. AppAssure is the first acquisition that Dell has made since the creation of its new Software Group and will be part of its enterprise storage and software portfolio. This acquisition is another significant signpost that Dell is aggressively attacking the storage and storage management market, and the software market overall, more broadly.

Commvault Turns Snapshots Into 'Proper' Backups

March 21, 2011 09:00 AM
As we discussed a few weeks ago, you can certainly argue that snapshots, when combined with replication, could serve as an adequate backup system. My biggest objection was that snapshots lack the catalog that conventional backup applications build as they back up data. Commvault's SnapProtect fills that gap by providing catalogs and a management console for snapshots across a variety of arrays and other snapshot providers.

CommVault Releases Results Of IT Storage Spending Survey

January 12, 2011 08:00 AM
The economy is improving, and backup and recovery is the function that is both the most and least costly, compared to expectations, according to a recent straw poll that Commvault Systems performed with its customers to determine how they saw their budgets and resource allocation shaping up for 2011. Other major priorities determined by the non-scientific survey included managing the growth of data and spending on networks and equipment, particularly in the context of consolidating data protection. While the economy itself may have stalled, the growth of data has not, and IT organizations are expected to do more with the same or fewer resources.

CommVault's Simpana 9: Making Information Governance Actionable

November 11, 2010 09:00 AM
IT organizations are becoming more and more aware of the need for information governance but if their concerns only result in collaborative planning efforts there is no mechanism to actually put the plans into execution. However, there are solutions designed to help overcome this hurdle. The information management side of CommVault's Simpana 9 turns the planning exercise into actions that can achieve measurable results in such areas as eDiscovery and compliance.

Dell and CommVault Partner On New Backup Appliance

September 16, 2010 11:30 AM
Dell and CommVault Systems have introduced the Dell PowerVault DL Back-to-Disk Appliance, the latest in a line of backup and archiving appliances. It has storage capacity of up to 300TB and throughput of up to 3TB per hour, double the capacity and throughput of previous versions. The device, which runs CommVault's Simpana 8 software, can deduplicate data to maximize storage. It can also serve as an edge device in the cloud to let organizations back up and archive data off site. The product is available now starting at $17,000 for 3TB.

Bank Invests In Dedupe To Shrink Backup Windows

July 07, 2010 12:16 PM
If time is money, then First National Bank of Pennsylvania was spending way too much to back up critical applications. A full weekly backup would take 90 hours, and nightly incremental backups were taking around 24 hours. The bank, which has over 220 branches in PA and Ohio, was also bogged down with a tangle of products: 13 different backup systems were employed to service 570 servers. The company had to devote an IT staff person full time just to maintain all these backup products. When the bank decided to migrate from direct-attached storage to a SAN, it also decided to streamline its backup operations and embrace deduplication.

Cloud Storage Enabled Applications

February 12, 2010 03:20 PM
CommVault's recent announcement of enabling cloud storage as an additional backup target for their application created a bit of buzz in the cloud storage community. As it should. CommVault along with Atempo, Symantec and others that are making cloud storage just another button to click will go a long way in its adoption. I think what is more interesting is the use of cloud storage by Independent Software Developer's (ISV) that are not your typical storage guys.

CommVault Delivers A Cloud-Enabled Platform

February 05, 2010 01:00 PM
Everybody wants to go to heaven someday, but nobody seems to want to go now. Why so? Perhaps it's mere uncertainty. If we substitute the cloud for "heaven," the same seems to be true today. That is why it is so important for vendors to create products and services that can actually get clients to the cloud today while still keeping their feet on the ground. With that in mind, CommVault's ability to effectively extend its data management platform into the cloud provides a positive illustration that the cloud can provide real value today and not just someday. Such examples are important so that the cloud is not just dismissed as hype.
