Information and Communications company Fujitsu has launched ‘Fujitsu Reference Architecture’ in a partnership with Commvault to provide the advantages of a cloud environment to on-premise storage. With this launch, businesses will be able to simplify public cloud and on-premise storage with complete data portability.
Fujitsu claim that the ‘Fujitsu Reference Architecture’ product will give organizations and enterprises an added advantage with respect to scale and performance as opposed to what an appliance-based approach will. They further added that this solution will reduce the integration time and risks related to multi-point solutions.
Explaining the sluggishness of integrating multi-point solutions, Olivier Delachapelle, Head of Category Management Data Center at Fujitsu in EMEIA (Europe and Middle East Africa) said:
Traditional heterogeneous point solutions for backup and archiving may have slowed down business process transformation due to limited flexibility and hardware choice. We are changing that with our new Fujitsu Reference Architecture for Commvault HyperScaleTM Software.
According to Fujitsu, their new data protection offering will allow organizations to save costs while upping the speed and performance of data storage. They further added that with this new offering, they will broaden their portfolio offering with Commvault for higher profitability.
Agreeing with this statement, Jonathan Howard, Director, Technical Alliances at Commvault, said:
Today’s enterprise customers want the agility and economics of the cloud on-premises, so scale out data protection software with Commvault HyperScale is highly attractive. Fujitsu’s experience in the enterprise, and the pairing of its world class hardware portfolio with Commvault data protection, provide customers with pre-validated solutions to help them gain a fresh approach to data protection and on-premises infrastructures.
