Deploying a Commvault Access Node from the AWS Marketplace

From the AWS Marketplace, you can deploy an AWS instance as a cloud access node from the Commvault Cloud Access Node BYOL, which contains all the components that are required to support Linux operations in the Commvault environment.


  • The cloud access node can be any of the following:

    • MediaAgent with FREL (file recovery enabler for Linux)

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

    • Media Agent, FREL, and access node

  • After the deployment, you can subscribe to the BYOL packages on the AWS Marketplace. To review the terms and conditions agreement before subscribing, see:

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


  1. From the AWS EC2 Console, go to Instances, and then click Launch Instance.

    AWS opens a wizard to guide you through the deployment.

  2. Search for "Commvault".

  3. Display the search results for AWS Marketplace.

  4. Select Commvault Cloud Access Node BYOL.

  5. Select an instance type.

  6. Identify a network and subnet that are available for the deployment.

  7. If necessary, add additional storage.

    By default, the Commvault Cloud Access Node BYOL provides 100 GB of storage.

  8. From the Command Center navigation pane, go to Manage > Servers.

    The Servers page appears.

  9. Click Add server.

    The Add servers dialog box appears.

  10. Select Complete the installation if software packages are already installed on your computer.

  11. In Host name, enter the IPv4 address of the AWS instance.

    The IPv4 address must be reachable by the CommServe server in one of the following ways:

  12. In Server name, enter the server name.

  13. Click Install.

  14. On the Linux machine, perform a remote install of all currently available Commvault feature release maintenance releases.

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