Commvault HyperScale X


Commvault HyperScale X delivers Commvault’s industry leading technology in a scale-out infrastructure that simplifies hybrid cloud data protection to provide the following features:

  • Simple, flexible data protection for all workloads including containers, virtual machines, and databases.

  • Optimized scalability to easily grow as needed, on-premise and cloud environments.

  • Trusted security and resiliency including built-in ransomware protection.

HyperScale X scale-out software provides for the creation of a storage pool for housing protected data. The initial creation of a storage pool, requires 3 similarly configured nodes. Expansion of the pool can be accomplished through the addition of individual or multi-node increments. The node configurations are optimized with sufficient resources to support all MediaAgent services, while ensuring resiliency and performance. The CommServe provides a consolidated view to create, monitor, and manage the storage pool and the HyperScale X nodes.


HyperScale X platform resilience is a function of system architecture and best practices implemented to deliver the required level of service. On HyperScale X platform, the inherent application level resilience of a distributed deduplication database and index cache is complimented by the scale-out architecture, which uses standard servers with redundant components. Data resilience on HyperScale X platform is based on (4+2) erasure coding, where each block of data is broken into 4 chunks of data and 2 chunks of parity and distributed across the nodes in the pool. The (4+2) erasure coding is the only method used and it provides for tolerance from multiple levels of hardware failure. Implementing industry best-practices such as mirrored root disk and separate subnet/VLAN for public data protection traffic and private storage pool traffic over bonded network interfaces, further enhances resilience at the node-level.

HyperScale X Deployment Models

HyperScale X is delivered in the following deployment models:

  • HyperScale X Appliance

    HyperScale X Appliances are pre-imaged with HyperScale X software, at the factory, before shipping. With only network and other site specific information required, the configuration is performed at the customers' location. Commvault is the single point of contact for support of the entire stack, for both the hardware and software on the appliance.

    For more information about HyperScale X Appliance, see HyperScale X Appliance.

  • Reference Architecture

    HyperScale X Reference Architecture servers are imaged with the HyperScale X software on-site, after initial server rack and stack. Commvault is the point of contact for support calls pertaining to the software stack. For hardware related issues, support is provided by the respective server vendor.

    For more information about HyperScale Reference Architecture, see HyperScale X Reference Architecture.

Remote Office Appliance

Remote Office Appliance RO1200 is a Remote Office Branch Office (ROBO) solution to protect and recover data wherever it exists; from remote offices to corporate offices and into the cloud. It provides a powerful, cost effective, fully-integrated solution that allows organizations to protect, recover, and access data at remote locations. Remote Office Appliance RO1200 offers remote and small offices flexible and streamlined backup and recovery through a scale-up infrastructure within an existing Commvault HyperScale environment. As a fully integrated appliance, the Remote Office Appliance RO1200 simplifies the acquisition, installation, and support that often hinders remote staff or requires expensive professional services.
