LAS VEGAS (BUSINESS WIRE) CommVault is redefining mid-market disaster recovery by offering a fully integrated Cloud DR solution, which reduces the financial challenges associated with traditional DR services that provide affordable and rapid recovery of backup and archive data residing in the cloud.

CommVault is introducing "Cloud DR," a mid-market disaster recovery offering that enables customers to realize higher levels of business continuity without the large capital investments typically required by traditional, off-premises disaster recovery solutions. CommVault will provide small and medium-sized businesses with an affordable, flexible disaster recovery solution that leverages the seamless integration between CommVault's enterprise cloud computing-optimized Simpana software and Rackspace Cloud Hosting services.

With CommVault's integrated cloud storage connector for Simpana software, joint customers can use CommVault's single console to move on-premise backup and archive data securely and reliably to Rackspace Cloud Files, which provides online storage for files and media. The result gives customers the opportunity to reduce internal IT costs by moving infrequently accessed files and email data off expensive, tier-one storage to lower-cost cloud storage. CommVault is further reducing costs while bolstering business continuity with Cloud DR, which offers a simple, economical way to perform full or partial recoveries of Windows and Linux archives and backup data stored in Rackspace Cloud Servers.

In lowering the barriers to entry for mid-market disaster recovery, CommVault helps its customers meet ever-increasing recovery time and recovery point objectives (RTO/RPO). In addition, the solution reduces reliance on costly and cumbersome on-premises and offsite tape management and can improve DR testing.

For CommVault channel partners, this expanded program enables them to deliver hosted, off-premise solutions to their customers without investment in additional infrastructure and resources.  CommVault's partners can grow their respective businesses by leveraging this new avenue to simplify the movement, protection, archiving and disaster recovery of all types of physical and virtualized data stored in the cloud, including Oracle and SAP databases as well as Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint applications. For more than four years, CommVault has worked with Rackspace to support its managed services business while protecting more than 45,000 servers encompassing over 24 PBs of vital customer data. Recently, Rackspace was given the top ranking in a cloud infrastructure report produced by Info-Tech Research Group.New and existing CommVault Simpana software customers can leverage Rackspace's cloud-based data storage by purchasing a per-terabyte capacity license from CommVault, which enables them to easily store data on-premises or in the cloud. CommVault customers can purchase Cloud Files storage for approximately 15 cents per GB/month.
