Commvault, a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced the integration of its Commvault Data Platform and IntelliSnap® technology for FlashStack™, a flexible, converged infrastructure solution offered jointly by Cisco and Pure Storage, combining the latest in compute, network, and storage hardware into a single, integrated architecture. By providing the data protection layer for FlashStack with IntelliSnap integration, Commvault is working with Pure Storage and Cisco to address the ongoing shift from the traditional silo approach of separate servers, storage, and networking equipment to a predesigned, pre-engineered, tested and optimized solution that provides organizations a high performance, scalable infrastructure for deploying mission-critical workloads.
Commvault’s IntelliSnap integration with FlashStack is an ideal replacement over traditional data management and protection tools that are unable to scale and support critical enterprise applications and databases like Oracle, VMware SAP, and Microsoft SQL and Exchange, whether physical or virtual.
“Through our extended collaboration with Pure Storage and Cisco to provide Commvault’s IntelliSnap integration with FlashStack, we reinforce our ongoing commitment to support all flash data centers to enable business critical applications to perform faster, run more efficiently, and be more available for our shared customers,” said Ralph Nimergood, VP of Worldwide Channels and Alliances, Commvault. “
