CommCell Scalability Guide
Certain guidelines associated with the design, deployment, and support of large CommCell® environments must be followed.
Benefits of Multiple CommCells
The following list outlines the benefits gained by deploying Commvault® software across multiple CommCell groups in an extra large environment:
- General IT Maintenance
Allows for partial downtime of backup operations. For example, when a CommServe group is taken offline for software updates/upgrades or hardware upgrades and maintenance, the other CommCell groups will continue to function without impact on data movement operations.
- Reduce Risk Associated with Unreliable IP Networks
The strategic placement of CommServe within the shortest network distance to the servers it protect, dramatically reduces issues associated with slow or unreliable network connectivity between LAN clients and the CommServe.
- Improved CommCell® Group Activity Monitoring and Performance
By balancing data protection activity load across multiple CommServes, a smoother operation of the CommCell group is allowed, with better response time in each individual CommCell console GUI.
- Load Balancing on Resources
As the data protection infrastructure evolves, Commvault® provides an easy-to-use method for maintaining the balance of resources across CommCell groups via CommCell Migration.
