Commvault Data Domain Boost Storage Library feature is an integration between the Commvault data protection software and the Dell EMC® Data Domain® and PowerProtect DD® deduplication storage systems. Commvault is a Dell DD Boost ecosystem partner and has incorporated the DD Boost SDK into the Commvault platform, which now allows advanced levels of integration and feature support with no additional software or plug-ins required.
When using the Commvault Data Domain Boost Storage Library feature, the software makes a direct connection to the Dell EMC® Data Domain® device through the SDK to move data directly and securely without the need to expose mount points or use network shares.

SDK integration also provides access to the full set of Dell DD Boost APIs and features.
