Fujitsu offers cloud-like agility to protect business-critical data - New Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance


Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance lets you protect a wide range of applications as well as virtual and hyper-converged infrastructures with a single integrated solution. Based on PRIMERGY hardware and manufactured by Fujitsu in Germany, the appliance is the ideal solution for data centers and remote and branch offices. It allows you to significantly decrease complexity and cost while increasing both scalability and IT agility. Installation, management and upgrades of the pre-designed and integrated solution are all very easy.

Imagine that you have unified and simple data protection – with one management platform built on a scale-out infrastructure that delivers cloud-like services on-premises. Such a solution would simplify data protection tasks considerably. For example, you could offer your business units cloud-like agility, resiliency and availability for on-premises data and applications. You could boost efficiencies with automation and self-service capabilities, in addition to optimizing hardware utilization and costs at the same time. Now also imagine that your data protection could scale seamlessly with predictable performance, but without re-quiring forklift upgrades. This are all advantages of the Scale-out Architecture, a fresh and increasingly demanded approach to solve data protection challenges. In opposite to the Scale-up Architecture, where capacity is achieved by adding more storage to the same existing system, when a scale-out system reaches its storage limit, another node can be added to expand the system capacity and also performance. Does that sound too good to be true? Then it’s time for you discover a fresh approach to resolving data protection challenges.

Fujitsu is giving customers the widest choice of backup solutions to suit their individual business needs and budgets, with the addition of Commvault HyperScale™ Appliances to its storage portfolio.


Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance is a hyper-converged data management solution that tightly integrates computing, storage, life cycle management and analytics in a single platform across the data center and the cloud. This appliance is designed for customers who want a simple, easy-to-use solution for data protection and management. Thanks to its scale-out architecture with Fujitsu’s powerful PRIMERGY servers at their core, the appliance delivers services with cloud-like economics in an industry-proven data management solution. Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance provides a unified platform that supports data services for indexing, storage, data security, automation, reporting, and native access without the need for extra storage or additional hardware infrastructure.

Designed to scale out to handle growing storage demands, they provide cloud-like economics and full scalability for both performance and capacity, as well as making sure business-critical backup data stays on-premises. Scalability makes the appliances particularly suitable for midsize to very large environments and provide Managed Service Providers with valuable agility in protecting fast growing amounts of data.

Tightly integrated with Fujitsu hardware, Commvault HyperScale Appliances greatly reduce the complexity of implementing an end-to-end data protection and management solution. The pre-tested, unified appliances offer built-in coverage for over 200 technology platforms – spanning operating systems, applications, storage arrays, hypervisors, and public clouds – as well as application-aware backups, support for leading databases, and comprehensive automation. Customers can seamlessly add compute, storage and software licenses via a modern subscription agreement. The appliances natively manage online backups across hybrid IT environments and supports all the leading cloud storage platforms.

The Commvault appliances are also compatible with Fujitsu ETERNUS CS200c integrated appliances. These offer seamless extensions for system capacity plus a wide range of perpetual and flexible licensing options that are decoupled from the appliance hardware – allowing customers to upgrade hardware as required, and transfer existing licenses to a new system. For more details read the blog: Flexible in Every Way.

Together, the Commvault HyperScale Appliances with subscription licensing and the Fujitsu ETERNUS CS200c appliances with perpetual licensing give customers the widest range of options regarding scalability and commercial models, providing even more choice to combine appliances into a tailored, cloud-ready infrastructure for backup and recovery.
