At Cisco, we’ve enjoyed a long relationship with Commvault, working together to combine expertise and provide better, smarter solutions to customer data protection challenges. We collaborate closely to help organizations ensure business continuity and uninterrupted operations more simply, more effectively, and more cost-efficiently.

Our latest solution is called ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS: It’s a new combination of Commvault HyperScale Software running on Cisco UCS hardware, built to address the growing concerns of unprecedented data growth and secondary-but-critical workloads such as analytics, compliance, business intelligence, archiving, and more. You can learn more about the new Commvault data platform here.

Combining high-performance storage with a powerful data management platform, ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS offers a lot of unique value for secondary storage workload needs:

  • Reduce data footprint by up to 60% by breaking down data silos and delivering scalable data protection
  • Simplify data ecosystems and help organizations more easily extract value from data
  • Optimize environments for flexibility, and bring cloud economics to on-premises environments, complete with deep hybrid cloud integration
  • Reduce costs and accelerate performance—on average, it costs 65% less than competitive solutions and performs 30% faster

If you’re curious about what you can use this solution for—the answer is a lot. It’s agnostic to legacy storage/appliance refresh cycles. But here are just a few use case examples:

Infrastructure modernization: It’s a great fit for your digital transformation initiatives. ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS can help ensure the move to next-generation IT isn’t hindered by overwhelming complexity or soaring secondary storage costs.

Application protection: Whether you need to ensure performance or modernize your applications for cloud, ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS can help. It’s also a great fit for remedying underperforming backup windows or managing copy data/multiple snapshots.

Development and testing: With optimized performance and flexible data management, this solution can simplify and accelerate your entire development lifecycle. It helps ensure developers can always get the data they need, when they need it—helping make them more agile and productive.

ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS runs on Cisco UCS S3260 hardware to enable a global view of all your data, with complete data portability and robust automation and orchestration features that help reduce operational complexity.

In closing: We couldn’t be more excited about ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS. It’s a solution that puts you back in control of your data with highly elastic, rapidly scalable secondary data protection—plus a unique and proven architecture that provides copious advantages over existing solutions.

We’ll soon share more about how this solution can help you remove data silos, increase data visibility, and enhance cloud integration at significantly lower costs.
