CommVault today announced it has added data management and protection support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) that includes cloud reporting; self-service virtual machine provisioning; recovery; and resource management with snapshot-based data protection.

In addition to existing support for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Glacier, CommVault has introduced automated virtual machine (VM) provisioning and lifecycle management for workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

"CommVault recognsed the trend toward cloud computing very early on and made significant investments over the past several years," said CommVault chief operating officer, Al Bunte.

"As a result, we support a very broad set of cloud storage options within our software platform. Our automation and optimisation features for AWS allow customers, resellers and service providers to further take advantage of the flexible, scalable, pay-as-you-go AWS Cloud to reduce their costs, complexity and risks."
