5 Requirements for Cloud Backup and Recovery

By March 12, 2020March 8th, 2024Blog

Commvault recently asked cloud data protection customers for answers to a critical question: Which aspects of Commvault cloud data protection are most useful?

Here’s how they ranked the top 5 requirements for cloud backup and recovery.

1. Integrated deduplication and compression

    • Save time and cost by moving backups to the cloud in a compressed format.
    • Reduce storage space and save money.
    • Commvault stores data in readily usable formats, critical for fast recovery.

“We are using Commvault deduplication to reduce the amount of data in the cloud, which helps us reduce budget costs.”

2. Native integration with public clouds

      • Forget about complex and expensive cloud gateways. Native integration with public clouds streamlines the work.
      • The Commvault platform natively integrates with Amazon AWSTM, Microsoft AzureTM, Google Cloud PlatformTM, Oracle CloudTM and more.

“We recently replaced all of our onsite tape libraries with AWS S3 storage. We couldn’t have done this without the seamless integration between Commvault and AWS.”

3. Breadth and depth of workloads supported

      • Use cloud backup and recovery for a wide variety of critical applications, databases, virtual machines and SaaS workloads.
      • Commvault helps you be prepared for what’s next with deep integration across a wide range of supported cloud, storage, application and database technologies.

“It gives you the possibilities that other backup tools do not provide. Especially when you have workloads in the cloud.”

4 . Confirming backups are complete

      • It sounds simple: did my cloud backup work? Not every backup product can confirm if your backup was successful.
      • With Commvault, a dashboard shows live backup status. Clearly see how well data is protected.

“Commvault provides an easy setup to use cloud services for backups.”

5. Reporting and alerting

      • Understand the current cloud backup and recovery status with built-in alerting, monitoring and reporting.
      • Commvault uses AI-driven alerts and dashboards so that you know what is happening in your cloud and on-premises data protection environment.

“It has a robust set of features and tools that makes backups, reports, and self-service easier to use.”
