To be competitive in today’s IT environment, most of the organizations are migrating their IT infrastructure to Cloud. When it comes to cloud, especially On-premise IT, protecting and managing exponential data growth is a challenging task. But the current business demands and needs call for technologies that not only simplify the management of huge volumes of data but also transform that data into a strategic asset and show innovative ways to access, protect and use it anywhere and anytime.
Simpana Software Overview:
Simpana software is an enterprise level platform used for integrated data and information management solution. It is built from ground up on a unified code base and single platform. But the same back-end technologies are shared by all the functions to deliver the unmatched benefits and advantages of a comprehensive approach to managing, protecting and accessing data.
Simpana helps in investment protection with a software platform that is modular, flexible and ready to subjugate new challenges as they emerge.
Explore Key Features of Simpana:
? Recovery and Backup: Commvault’s Simpana software is redefining enterprise backup and helping companies in reducing costs, simplifying operations and speedy recovery of data.
? Snapshot Management: This feature enhances capabilities and broad coverage for managing hardware snapshots. As a rejuvenating approach to recovery and backup, companies can enhance data protection and access easily by narrowing the backup window and punch to production resources.
? Virtual Machine Integration: Beyond recovery and Backup of virtual machines to deliver advanced data management capabilities like automated protection based on the business value, disaster recovery, self-service access and application recoveries, all are designed to gear up virtual server deployment. Simpana allows deep integration into the virtual infrastructure in order to deliver advanced data management capabilities for platforms like VMvare vCenter, VMware vCloud Director and Microsoft Hybrid-V.
? Replication: Enable disaster recovery testing and planning, strengthening access and cost-competent information retention with capable and timely replication of backup data to various other locations and storage bank including tape, disk and cloud.
? Simpana Onepass Backup and Archive: This feature minimises costs, reduces risk and complexity with concurred backup, reporting and archiving. Simpana OnePass enables companies to solve their large files and e-mail growth problem with zero footstep archiving and no additional overhead.
? Deduplication: Simpana delivers installed, global deduplication at the source or at the target and adds greater performance and scalability with parallel deduplication. Source-side deduplication minimizes network traffic from backups by almost 90 percent. Whereas global-deduplication help in minimizing total storage footprint by 50 percent. These techniques are very well explained in detail in CommVault Training. DASH copy capabilities, off site copies and tiered storage are more efficient and faster than ever before.
