CommVault Live Sync Feature Eliminates Conventional VM Backups

sync-forOrganizations often face strict requirements to quickly recover critical servers and data, or they risk business health and bottom-line losses. And for business-critical applications, failure of any kind is not an option.

The ability to rebuild a server and restore its data is no longer enough when seconds count. So what are the options if your organization cannot tolerate application downtime?

The Live Sync feature of CommVault Simpana 10 for VMware takes a new approach to protecting applications in virtualized environments, because it no longer forces you to recover critical virtual machines from backup copies. With Live Sync, a remote copy of an organization’s virtual machines is regularly synchronized with its production counterpart. This twin enables organizations to power-on the standby virtual machine and have a copy that is perfectly in synch with production, without the need to go through a lengthy restore process. CommVault also built this process on top of their de-duplicated copies that leverage VMware’s change block tracking, making the amount of data that is transferred over the wire as small as it can possibly be.

Ultimately, this means your organization can fully leverage a standby virtual environment that is ready to use in a matter of minutes, without having to purchase an additional product to perform the replication.
