Cloud Storage

Cloud Storage provides the ability to configure and use online cloud storage devices as storage targets. Cloud Storage reduces the need to maintain hardware resources such as tape or disk storage devices at onsite locations. It also provides the ability to easily increase your storage capacity as and when it is required. Cloud Storage provides centralized data access, better failover capabilities and reduces the day-to-day storage administration tasks.

As the data gets transferred over the network, protecting the integrity of data is an important aspect of any cloud storage implementation. Cloud Storage protects the integrity of the data using the following features:

  • By default, data is transferred through secured channels using the HTTPS protocol.

    HTTPS can be overridden to use HTTP during configuration, if it is required. For example, you can configure on-premise object storage that supports the S3 or SWIFT protocols, which connect using HTTP.

  • Data encryption feature further encrypts the data, providing data protection during network transfer as well as storage.

Commvault's Deduplication feature identifies and eliminates redundant data in the backup, thereby reducing not only the volume of data stored in cloud but also the bandwidth required for data transfer.
