CommVault’s data management software receives VMware Ready Data Protection Status

Ensures that Simpana 8 is ready for deployment in joint customer environments

By CBR Staff Writer

CommVault has revealed that its Simpana software and Simpana Universal Virtual Server Agent have now achieved VMware Ready Data Protection Status. The status indicates that Simpana software has passed a detailed evaluation and testing process defined by VMware and is now listed on the VMware partner product catalog as an offering that delivers optimised levels of integration, functionality and performance.

According to the company, passing the VMware Ready Data Protection testing helps ensure that CommVault Simpana 8 is tuned to leverage VMware platform functionality and is ready for deployment in joint customer environments.

The company claims that its customers can take advantage of VMware Ready Simpana software to reduce the administrative challenges and costs of managing explosive data growth and growing virtualised environments.

The company said that with Simpana software’s Universal Virtual Server Agent, backup, recovery and retention of data hosted within VMware vSphere 4 environments can be simplified through integration with the VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) framework.
