CommVault Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager Automates Snapshots for all Major Storage Systems
CommVault has announced the Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager, the industry’s first standalone software product that automates snapshot management and application-aware recovery across multiple storage arrays and physical or virtual servers. Businesses are beginning to use hardware snapshots more and more in order to support the recovery of critical applications and virtual server environments; however, existing solutions are missing the necessary functionality and integration to fully realize the full benefits of snapshots. Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager overcomes this complexity and limitations of current approaches by providing faster and more efficient access to data.
Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager has a point-and-click interface, simplifying management while automating the protection of applications from a single console. The minimalist software features embedded intelligence for granular, rapid recovery of individual files, messages, and objects. IntelliSnap Recovery Manager also minimizes downtime and enhances productivity--while freeing up IT resources to focus on other priorities--with its application-consistent recovery of data.
The Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager software supports the industry’s largest selection of storage systems without custom scripting, such as from Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM, NetApp, and Nimble Storage. Additionally, IntelliSnap Recovery Manager replaces multiple tools and manual processes, and improves flexibility, choice and value in storage investments with its broad range of hardware support. CommVault also allows disk array vendors to integrate their hardware-based snapshots with IntelliSnap technology with the IntelliSnap Connect Program.
Simpana IntelliSnap Recovery Manager provides channel partners a way to improve their solution capabilities and solve data protection and recovery problems by offering modern snapshot management with new arrays they sell or with existing and supported storage arrays within their customer base.
