Fujitsu Launches New Data Protection Solution

Data digital flow

Fujitsu today brings the benefits of the cloud to on-premises backup storage through its new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault HyperScale Software, a new data protection solution based on pre-tested configurations and built with Commvault HyperScale Software and Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY server systems.

The new reference architecture is the third data protection solution developed by Fujitsu in collaboration with data protection software provider Commvault.

Olivier Delachapelle, Head of Category Management Data Centre at Fujitsu in EMEIA, says: “Protecting data against loss has become number one priority in a digital world. However, traditional heterogeneous point solutions for backup and archiving may have slowed down business process transformation due to limited flexibility and hardware choice. We are changing that with our new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault HyperScaleTM Software. This replaces legacy data protection architectures with a software-defined solution, based on economical, general purpose, server-based storage. The new architecture boosts agility by consolidating and eliminating data silos, and shrinking the footprint of on-premises hardware – as well as providing that all-important holistic, big-picture view of their data, wherever it’s stored.”

The Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault HyperScale Software is designed for organisations that require greater capacity or performance needs than available from an appliance-based approach. Fujitsu uses pre-validated configurations that provide hardware sizes and models for Commvault Hyperscale Software on a unique scale-out infrastructure. This simplified approach reduces both the integration time and risk associated with multiple point solutions, while injecting scalability with predictable economics and performance. Customers gain a fully-tested, easy-to-set-up data protection solution for backing up and archiving data in physical, virtual or cloud-based data centres.

“We welcome Fujitsu to the reference architecture program for Commvault HyperScale Software,” said Jonathan Howard, Director, Technical Alliances, Commvault. “Today’s enterprise customers want the agility and economics of the cloud on-premises, so scale out data protection software with Commvault HyperScale is highly attractive. Fujitsu’s experience in the enterprise, and the pairing of it’s world class hardware portfolio with Commvault data protection, provide customers with pre-validated solutions to help them gain a fresh approach to data protection and on-premises infrastructures.”
