INFINIDAT Ltd, announced a partnership with Commvault Systems, Inc. to integrate Commvault’s IntelliSnap technology with the its InfiniBox enterprise storage array.
The partnership addresses the needs of the companies’ shared clients to ensure the availability of their most critical asset – their data. Integrating IntelliSnap with InfiniBox enables clients to centrally manage an unlimited number of snapshots without any performance impact to the production environment. As part of the integration, IntelliSnap is supporting InfiniBox’s snapshot capability through its next generation software portfolio and open data platform.
The companies point to the most recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Disk Based Backup and Recovery, which states: “By 2018, 40% of organizations will augment traditional backup and recovery with additional products or replace their current backup application.”
The report also states: “By 2016, 20% of organizations, up from 7% today, will employ only snapshot and replication techniques, abandoning traditional backup/recovery.”
“Looking at the market, we want to enable our customers to easily manage the full data protection process,” said Jacob Broido, chief product officer, INFINIDAT. “By integrating IntelliSnap from Commvault, InfiniBox ensures application consistent snapshots that can be leveraged for any business use case, including data protection, DevOps, analytics or reporting, while maintaining peak performance.”
