As data growth and operational complexity continue to outpace IT budgets, organizations are looking for modern backup and recovery approaches to lower costs and improve operational efficiency.

To provide enterprises more flexibility in protecting, managing and accessing their data, CommVault and Nimble Storage are teaming up to integrate Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays with CommVault Simpana snapshot management software as part of the CommVault IntelliSnap Connect Program. As an IntelliSnap Connect partner, Nimble Storage gains access to CommVault’s snapshot management API’s to enable customers to extend their SAN investments while accelerating backup and recovery performance, reducing operational complexity and minimizing risk.

Together, CommVault IntelliSnap technology and Nimble Storage CS-series enterprise storage arrays provide data protection for enterprises and data recovery. Simpana software’s built-in application intelligence allows customers to recover data at a granular level such as individual files and emails or entire applications. The solution scales to support thousands of snapshots and integrates application-aware protection and data deduplication for a range of hypervisors, operating systems and applications, including VMware, Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and SAP databases and Windows, Linux, and Unix file systems.
