Recently, CommVault (News - Alert), a provider of email hosting solutions, expanded its relationship with Microsoft (News - Alert) Corp. to provide a cloud storage capability that combines the power of Simpana software with the benefits and flexibility of storing data on the Windows Azure cloud platform.
CommVault Simpana software offers integrated source-side deduplication, data encryption and integrated reporting and chargeback functions. It also supports backup, recovery and archiving for the full range of Microsoft application environments, including Microsoft Files, SharePoint 2010, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server and others.
An effective tool for email hosting, sharing and collaborating, Microsoft SharePoint helps businesses easily set up websites to share information within the entire organization, manage documents from start to finish, and publish reports to help team members make better decisions.
Starting at $50,000, the new combined data management solution for Windows Azure offers enterprise organizations a highly cost-effective solution that can be leveraged to archive, index, search, and access massive amounts of data for long-term retention and compliance.
It also provides up to 62 TBs of cloud storage capacity and the data and information management capabilities of Simpana 9 Express.
N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, CommVault, said in a statement, "Big Data keeps getting bigger and enterprise IT organizations are in need of simple, cost effective solutions for storing and managing massive amounts of data over long periods of time. CommVault and Microsoft have worked closely to enhance the capabilities of the Windows Azure platform, while adding substantial value to Microsoft applications. This new level of collaborative focus on cloud computing will bring tremendous value to our customers."
The new solution is available in two configurations - 62 TB of non-geo replicated Azure Storage or 41 TB of Standard Azure Storage.
