Commvault powers HPE GreenLake backup offering to deliver data protection, reliability to enterprise users



Commvault, provider of enterprise backup, recovery, archive and cloud, announced on Monday that its Commvault Data Platform has been selected by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to power its new HPE GreenLake Backup solution.

Currently available and managed through HPE’s outcome-based flexible IT consumption service, Commvault Software, which is pre-integrated on HPE servers, storage and networking technology will provide customers with enterprise-class data protection and reliability covering the entire lifecycle of a backup environment.

Through its support of HPE GreenLake Backup, Commvault is simplifying the backup experience for customers by providing the required hardware, software, and services to meet evolving data protection and compliance challenges, tightening resource requirements, and expanding data growth.

HPE GreenLake Backup is an on-premises deployment but priced like a cloud offering. It combines the best in HPE hardware and services with Commvault’s data management and protection software, deployed in own data center, but delivered as a ‘pay-as-you-go’ managed service. It delivers instant backup capacity on-demand so that users get agility and economics of the public cloud with necessary security and performance benefits of an on-premises backup environment.

“Today’s announcement brings together two industry leaders in Commvault and HPE for the benefit of our mutual customers with an end-to-end back up service, deployed and delivered in the privacy of their own data center,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO of Commvault. “Through this strategic technology partnership, we are delighted to extend our presence in the vital enterprise market with HPE with a new service offering that enables IT staff to focus on more strategic initiatives, while lowering operational expenses and reducing risks related to security, business continuity and regulatory compliance.”

“We are excited to partner with Commvault to deliver a complete ‘pay as you go’ backup solution that removes the complexities inherent in capacity planning and the burdens of provisioning backups and managing data growth. Instead we deliver a successfully executed backup, the outcome that our customers care about,” said Ana Pinczuk, SVP and GM of HPE Pointnext. “With HPE’s metering technology and management services to run our customers storage needs on either HPE StoreOnce or HPE 3PAR Storage, organizations are able to gain instant backup capacity, within the control and security of their own data center, deployed ahead of time and ready to be activated when needed.”
