FLASH-OPTIMIZED DATA PROTECTION FOR THE MODERN ENTERPRISE
By applying new thinking to decades-old storage problems, VAST has broken the long-standing tradeoff between performance and the cost of capacity to make affordable flash restores possible. VAST Data’s Universal Storage bucks the traditional model of purpose-built backup appliances (PBBA) that deduplicate data across spinning disks and are not designed for fast data recovery. Together, Commvault and VAST offer an all-flash scale-out architecture that can meet stringent recovery time objectives (RTOs) by providing rapid restore performance at a cost 40 percent lower than legacy PBBAs such as Dell EMC PowerProtect DD.
VAST and Commvault allow customers to protect any amount of enterprise data in a single cloud-scale platform and recover thousands of virtual machines in hours, not days or weeks. The VAST-Commvault partnership delivers a featureful data protection platform to help organizations simplify and manage the complexity of enterprise data while helping ensure the fundamental integrity of their business.
Unprecedented Data Efficiency
The industry’s most advanced data reduction, achieved by VAST’s Similarity-Based Data Reduction combined with the data protection tools in Commvault Complete, delivers an unprecedented level of efficiency to reduce storage costs to HDD-levels.
Users gain key data insights and analytics via VAST’s integration with Commvault’s Intelligent Data Services Platform, including e-discovery and audits of sensitive data and anomaly detection to mitigate future threats.
Indestructible Snapshots in VAST’s Universal Storage helps companies safeguard data by preventing critical backup copies and snapshots from being altered or destroyed by nefarious actors that are inside or outside of the organization.
LIMITLESS SCALE & PERFORMANCE
The world of data protection is changing, driven by events like ransomware and the need to deliver fast, concurrent and scalable restores. All-flash is now justifiable from an RTO perspective, but the financials still need to stack up. Architecture matters, and with efficient use of persistent memory and QLC flash, VAST Universal Storage provides a cost-effective all-flash solution that is faster on restore than backup, breaking the mold of secondary storage that has dominated for the last two decades.
