CommVault has announced its immediate support for Hitachi Data Systems Virtual Storage Platform G1000 (VSP G1000) and Storage Virtualisation Operating System (SVOS).According to Commvault, customers can use Hitachi Data Protection Suite with CommVault Simpana IntelliSnap technology to manage array-based snapshots and accelerate recovery for applications, file systems and Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere environments."Building on our decade of engineering experience with Hitachi Data Systems, CommVault supports the new Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000 hardware and Hitachi Storage Virtualisation Operating System software platform from day one to automate snapshot management and application-aware recovery," said Brian Brockway, vice president of worldwide product management, CommVault. "CommVault is committed to offering our joint customers holistic solutions that minimise business disruptions."Available immediately, the new systems can be used to deliver backup, archive, recovery, eDiscovery and search capabilities in a single solution.

Simpana software integration allows VSP G1000 customers to simplify management to provision and manage Hitachi Thin Image snapshots and ShadowImage volume copies at the speed of the storage platform and without the need for scripting.

They can also automate management of Hitachi Open Remote Copy Manager (HORCM) tasks and replication pair management to reduce deployment time, maximise storage recovery options and minimise downtime. 

"The deep collaboration between Hitachi Data Systems and CommVault enables enterprises to simplify data recovery and simplify complex environments, as our customers move to a continuous cloud infrastructure," said Tim Durant, senior director of global ISV alliances and data protection at Hitachi Data Systems.

"Having CommVault support across our Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1000, Virtual Storage Platform, and Unified Storage VM means HDS and CommVault can help customers quickly realise value from the storage investments they're making to modernise the data centre and become more business-defined."
