Huawei and Commvault unveil joint solution for hybrid cloud backup

Huawei Commvault hybrid cloud

Huawei and Commvault have released their hybrid cloud backup solution that enables enterprises to efficiently and securely back up the core data of private data centers to a Huawei public cloud platform using Commvault software.

Huawei says the solution, unveiled at CeBIT 2017, 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 low cost and remarkable data durability. The solution also supports encrypted transmission and static data encryption to guarantee the security of enterprise data, Huawei says.

Huawei adds that the Deutsche Telekom Open Telekom Cloud – launched via a partnership between Deutsche Telekom and Huawei – has been certified by Commvault.

”Data is crucial assets to enterprises. It’s always a tough issue to maintain and increase the value of data assets,” said Meng Guangbin, president of Huawei’s IT Storage product line.

Meng noted that Huawei and Commvault’s partnership has been a successful one since it was initiatied in early 2012. “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.”

”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,” commented Osgar de Laat, area VP for Advanced Solutions Group at Commvault EMEA. “The next couple of years will see companies go further into multi-cloud hybrid networking, with choice bringing complexity as well as business advantages.”

De Laat added that there are a number of benefits to this approach, well beyond just pay-as-you-go. “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.”
