Huawei and Commvault Jointly Launched the Hybrid Cloud Backup Solution

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 low cost and remarkable data durability. In addition, the solution supports encrypted transmission and static data encryption to guarantee the security of enterprise data. So far, Deutsche Telekom Open Telekom Cloud launched under the partnership between Deutsche Telekom and Huawei has been certified by Commvault.

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 the partnership in early 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”.

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 centers 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 back up 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 development and testing and also simplify and de-risk lift and shift operations for suitable workloads.''
