Commvault GO 2018

Data Received : 10-Oct-2018:

Commvault today announced its latest innovations that upend the “status quo” of the backup and recovery market, which in the past has required customers to acquire many point solutions, inclusive of new emerging backup vendors. The four product announcements address one of the key hybrid IT challenges faced by todays’ global digital enterprises – how to protect and manage data in ways that meet the needs of the business across locations, infrastructures, data types, and at scale.
  1. Commvault Command Center: Allows customers to track, analyse, and understand key performance indicators monitoring the health and status of all Commvault solutions, the customers’ data environment, and defined user objectives and outcomes. Powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), the Command Center offloads repetitive tasks with intelligent automation that learns and adapts to users’ interactions, focusing on operational and business outcomes. The solution features innovative capabilities such as proactive alerting via voice, text, email and through human interface devices like Amazon Alexa. The Commvault Command Center works across Commvault’s full portfolio as no charge, value-add upgrade for existing and new customers.

  2. Commvault Activate Enhancements: Enables customers to discover and gain knowledge about their data across all environments, whether managed by third-party tools, managed with Commvault tools, or not under management at all. With the enhanced portfolio, including the newly unleashed open and dynamic Commvault 4D Index, AI learning methods and the Sensitive Data Governance application, customers can successfully “activate” their data for significant returns across areas such as improved business decision-making, lowered data storage costs, compliance readiness, risk management, and other customer-critical use cases.

  3. Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery as-a-Service (B&RaaS): Three outcome-driven data protection and management offerings that are delivered through consumption-based and cloud-friendly pricing models: Commvault Complete B&RaaS (for Virtual Machines (VM), applications and native cloud applications), Commvault Complete B&RaaS for VMs and Commvault Complete B&RaaS for Native Cloud Applications. The new portfolio packages all the features of Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery in convenient offerings suitable for organizations of any size. These offerings provide customers with the flexibility to select specific outcomes that best fit their business needs and use cases, thus driving increased simplicity, ease of use and cost savings.
    • Commvault Complete B&RaaS includes service options for data management and protection of VMs and applications on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, as well as native cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365 and Salesforce.

  4. Commvault’s Appliance Portfolio: New additions of combined hardware/software vehicles deliver benefits across cloud environments, and modern, on-premises infrastructure.
