Deploying a Commvault Windows Access Node from the AWS Marketplace

From the AWS Marketplace, you can deploy an AWS instance as a cloud access node from Commvault Cloud Access Node for Microsoft 365 BYOL and select a Windows image . After the deployment, you can subscribe to the BYOL packages on the AWS Marketplace.

The cloud access node can be any of the following:

  • Access node (that is, it has the Virtual Server package and the Cloud Apps package)
  • Media Agent and access node

The Commvault Cloud Access Node for Microsoft 365 BYOL contains all the components that are required to support Linux operations in the Commvault environment.

To review the terms and conditions agreement before subscribing, see Commvault Cloud Access Node for Microsoft 365 BYOL.


  • If your CommServe system is a more recent release of Commvault than the MediaAgent, update the MediaAgent to the same feature release after deployment.

  • Obtain the host name or IP address of the CommServe host. You will enter the host name/IP address during the procedure.

  • When you launch the instance, you must provide a key pair. You can use an existing key pair or create a new key pair as part of the deployment.
