Fujitsu Delivers Cloud-like Scalability and Agility for On-Premises Backup Infrastructures
Fujitsu brings the benefits of the cloud – in terms of service, agility, resilience, scale and cost – to on-premises backup storage through its new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault HyperScaleTM Software, a new data protection solution based on pre-tested configurations and built with Commvault HyperScaleTM Software and Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY industry-standard server systems.
The new reference architecture is the third data protection solution2 developed by Fujitsu in collaboration with leading storage and data protection software provider Commvault. It simplifies the transformation into private cloud storage, withcomplete data portability for seamless integration between the public cloud and on-premises environments. It brings cloud agility, economics and service levels to on-premises data protection and recovery, enabling organizations to build a unified, modern data protection and management platform on a scale-out infrastructure.
Olivier Delachapelle, Head of Category Management Data Center at Fujitsu in EMEIA, says: “Protecting data against loss has become number one priority in a digital world. However, traditional heterogeneous point solutions for backup and archiving may have slowed down business process transformation due to limited flexibility and hardware choice. We are changing that with our new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault HyperScaleTM Software. This replaces legacy data protection architectures with a software-defined solution, based on economical, general purpose, server-based storage. The new architecture boosts agility by consolidating and eliminating data silos, and shrinking the footprint of on-premises hardware – as well as providing that all-important holistic, big-picture view of their data, wherever it’s stored.”
