HPE and Commvault: United to defeat downtime


Learn how HPE and Commvault are working together to defeat downtime with simplified backup and recovery solutions. And check out the new ESG white paper for insights on why it’s more important than ever to deploy a robust, resilient storage and data protection infrastructure.

HPE CommVault_defeat downtime.jpgData is a double-edged sword. It can create a lot of business value—but it can also represent significant liability. As we speak, your organization is gathering data faster than ever from many different sources. Keeping pace with this unprecedented data growth poses a huge challenge.

The bigger challenge lies in securing the data so that it can be effectively utilized without fear of unauthorized access or data loss. Any breach in data security can severely damage the reputation and performance of your company. Client information, payment data, personal files, bank account details—all are some examples of data sets that can be hard to replace and potentially dangerous if it falls into the wrong hands. Data lost due to disasters such as a flood or fire is crushing, but losing it to hackers or a malware infection is catastrophic to any business.

Enter HPE and Commvault, working together to simplify your backup and recovery

Last year, Commvault became a part of HPE Complete at a time when enterprises are increasing their reliance on simple, powerful comprehensive data protection and backup solutions to reduce complexity in their IT environments. Fueled by rising amounts and types of data, enterprises need to store, manage and analyze this growing trove of data, while mitigating risk associated with sophisticated and widespread ransomware attacks and other threats. What HPE and Commvault offer is much more than a resale agreement—because your data needs our combined data protection more than ever.

As part of the HPE Complete program, HPE customers will not only have access to the comprehensive Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery software solution, but also to Commvault HyperScale™ technology that provides a scale-out solution for today’s modern cloud-like architectures. This combination provides a truly "complete" enterprise backup and recovery solution available from HPE partners. Similarly, HPE partners have the benefit of being able to sell HPE storage and server platforms along with Commvault software as a complete solution on a single invoice—all with the confidence of knowing the hardware and software work together.
