by August 26, 2016 0 comments

Customers can implement a unified data protection strategy for workloads running on Red Hat Virtualization 4 for a cloud centric environment with greater virtual server data protection and file level restorability from Commvault’s next generation software.

Red Hat Virtualization 4, the newest release from Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, helps address the increasing costs and complexities of proprietary virtualization solutions by providing a fully-open, high-performance, more secure and centralized management platform for both Linux- and Windows-based workloads. Built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Virtualization 4 is designed to more easily integrate with existing IT investments while providing a foundation for emerging technology deployments, including containerized and cloud-native applications.

With existing support for Red Hat Virtualization 3.6, Commvault’s expanded integration and support for Red Hat Virtualization 4 gives customers increased flexibility to manage data and workloads across the range of traditional, virtual, and cloud infrastructures. Through Commvault’s Data Platform, customers — using a single solution — can now better protect data and workloads across one the industry’s broadest range of hypervisor coverage, which includes Red Hat Virtualization, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Xen, and Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV).  In addition, these workloads can be better protected as they move from hypervisors to the public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS.

“We are thrilled to be launching Red Hat Virtualization 4 with greater virtual data protection and file level restorability from Commvault,” said Scott Herold, Product Manager, Virtualization Business, Red Hat Inc. “Through our integration with Commvault, customers can adopt virtual workload protection strategies that give them flexibility and scalability to be more fluid in today’s highly disrupted, fast-paced global business environment.”

A sponsor at Commvault’s inaugural customer conference, Commvault GO 2016, to be held October 3-5 in Orlando, FL, Red Hat will be highlighting the benefits of Red Hat Virtualization and its recent OpenStack developments at the show.

“Modern enterprises today are embracing open source virtualization strategies that give their teams the upper hand in workload customization and freedom while maximizing their existing hardware investments to run workloads more efficiently,” said Brian Allison, Vice President of Worldwide Alliances, Commvault. “Through our support of Red Hat Virtualization, we are expanding our partnership with an industry leader in open source solutions to give organizations a more efficient and effective infrastructure by providing greater virtual server data protection and file level restorability from Commvault’s award-winning software.”

Red Hat Virtualization 4 is available as a standalone offering, as an integrated offering with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and as part of the Red Hat Cloud Suite comprehensive solution. Existing subscribers can upgrade to version Red Hat Virtualization 4 through the Red Hat Customer Portal. Commvault support for Red Hat Virtualization 3.6 is already available. Support for version 4 is planned for Q2 FY 17.
