Deployment for vCloud

Commvault uses the following components to support data protection and recovery operations:

  • CommServe host: Provides management, status, and reporting for protection operations. The CommServe user interface includes the CommCell Console and CommCell Browser.

  • Virtual Server Agent (VSA): The Virtual Server Agent can be installed on one or more machines, so that those machines can serve as VSA proxies. A VSA proxy manages backup and restore operations for guest VMs in your environment, eliminating the need to install agents on guest VMs.

  • MediaAgents: MediaAgents can reside in vCloud virtual machines or on servers in the physical environment.

You can deploy Commvault components on a single server or on different physical or virtual machines.
