Cloud Disaster Recovery

Friday, September 17th, 2010

CommVault’s new Cloud DR is offering businesses an economical method to perform full or partial recoveries of Linux and Windows archives and backup data stored on Rackspace Cloud Servers, according to CommVault.  “CommVault is redefining mid-market disaster recovery by offering a fully integrated Cloud DR solution, which reduces the financial challenges associated with traditional DR services that provide affordable and rapid recovery of backup and archive data residing in the cloud,” said Jeff Echols, senior director of cloud strategy and alliances at CommVault.

This flexible solution leverages the integration between CommVault’s enterprise cloud computing-optimized Simpana software and Rackspace’s cloud hosting services. Using CommVault’s integrated cloud storage connector for Simpana, joint customers can use CommVault’s single console to move on-premises backup and archive data to Rackspace Cloud Files, which provide online storage for files and media, according to CommVault. This allows customers to cut internal IT costs by moving archived or infrequently used files and email off their tier-one storage solutions, the company said.

Seems like the new CommVault Cloud DR could be very useful to all of us with cloud hosting websites.  I do think it a bad idea however that they have nothing up on their website that talks about this or has any pricing. No links, no nothing about Cloud DR. If you Google “Cloud DR” you will find nothing but news articles.  CommVault needs to step it up and release a product and have it available for pickup on their website. #fail
