Legacy data protection solutions overwhelmed by data growth and heightened recovery requirements are commonly addressed with array-based snapshots. This often requires time-consuming manual integrations with significant manual scripting and coordination across teams.

CommVault’s Simpana IntelliSnap was designed to address this challenge. It is an automated data protection solution that merges storage system hardware snapshots directly into the data protection process.

Among the benefits and features are:

  • Convergence of application-aware backup and snapshot management in multi-vendor storage environments
  • Elimination of scripting and automation of application-aware snapshot and recovery operations across a wide range of storage platforms
  • Reduction of risk by the elimination of multiple tools, processes and complex scripting
  • Capture clean, recoverable application images
  • Comprehensive reporting provides deep insight into storage and protection
  • Sophisticated user management and delegation allows the sharing of tasks without compromising security

In other news, Michael Stempf, a Senior Storage Solutions Engineer at Sirius Computer Solutions, was recently presented with an award for being the first partner to obtain CommVault’s Simpana Master Class and Certification.

The Master Certification designates the deepest level of technical knowledge attainable for CommVault Simpana software solutions. According to CommVault, about 1,000 people have taken the test, and only 16 have passed it—all of whom are CommVault employees except for two CommVault clients and now Michael Stempf of Sirius.

Stempf is a 25-year IT industry veteran. For the past 15 years, he has been designing disaster recovery solutions. His recent certifications also include IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Deployment Professional and EMC Proven Professional, Backup Recovery Associate. Stempf’s experience spans all areas of backup and disaster recovery, from pre- and post-sales to services and development.

Sirius is a CommVault Platinum Partner, the highest partner status for CommVault solution providers. That status, along with Stempf’s achievement, exemplifies Sirius’ commitment to providing the highest level of support to Sirius clients that are using CommVault solutions.
