Huawei and Commvault have released their Hybrid Cloud Backup Solution at CeBIT 2017, currently taking place in Hannover, Germany. The solution enables enterprises to efficiently and securely back up the core data of private data centres to a Huawei public cloud platform using Commvault software. The solution significantly reduces customer investment in data backup while simplifying backup data maintenance. In addition, the solution provides on-demand storage resources to support businesses that are growing rapidly, enabling enterprises to get planning- and maintenance-free backup storage while ensuring a high level of security and availability of all critical data.
In contrast to on-premises data backup, this off-premises solution provides remote disaster recovery, enabling Huawei public clouds to provide convenient, large-capacity object storage at a low cost and remarkable data durability. In addition, the solution supports encrypted transmission and static data encryption so as to guarantee the security of enterprise data. The Hybrid Cloud Backup Solution is currently applicable to the Open Telekom Cloud co-built by Huawei and Deutsche Telekom.
Meng Guangbin, President, IT Storage Product Line, Huawei, said: ''Data is crucial assets to enterprises. It’s always a tough issue to maintain and increase the value of data assets. Huawei and Commvault initiated partnership early in 2012. We have been working closely on technology innovation in the field of data protection. The joint solutions of Huawei storage hardware and Commvault backup software have achieved great market success all over the world for the past years. In order to guarantee that data floats between a private cloud and a public cloud freely and securely, and to satisfy business development at any time as required, Huawei and Commvault extended their backup capabilities to hybrid cloud scenarios. Now, this solution is ready for use on the Open Telekom Cloud”.
Osgar de Laat, Area Vice President, Advanced Solutions Group – Commvault EMEA also stated: ''With a hybrid environment likely to be the norm for some years to come, it is clear that the ability to move workloads between cloud(s) and on-premise data centres easily and simply is critical. The next couple of years will see companies go further into multi-cloud hybrid networking, with choice bringing complexity as well as business advantages. There are a number of benefits, well beyond just paying for what you use. Choosing the right software will allow you to backup to the cloud, and if necessary, restore into the same cloud, converting the VM format on the fly. This sort of functionality can significantly cut Disaster Recovery costs, enable cloud Dev and Test and also simplify and de-risk lift and shift operations for suitable workloads.''
