Configuration Wizard for Setting Up the Commvault HyperScale Appliance HS1300

You can use the Commvault HyperScale wizard to detect and configure HyperScale nodes. The web-based wizard does not require a physical login to the appliance. In addition, the wizard collects all the information that is needed to detect and configure the appliance in advance, and uses this information to set up the nodes.

Admin Console Supports Virtualize Me for Windows and UNIX Computers

Admin Console supports virtualizing and cloning Windows and UNIX computers.

Key Features

  • You can easily, quickly, and reliably convert any computer into a virtual machine.
  • When the physical computer is unavailable because of a hardware failure or a network failure, you can use the backup that is available on the media to create a virtual machine.
  • You can use a backup operation that was performed at any point in time to create the virtual machine.
  • You can customize the client computer configuration—such as disk configuration, network configuration, or disk provisioning—before you create the virtual machine.

Admin Console Supports VMware Live Recovery for VMs

From the Admin Console, you can perform a live recovery of virtual machines (VMs) from a backup.

With the Live Recovery feature, you can recover and turn on VMs from a backup without waiting for a full restore of the VM. You can use this feature to recover a VM that failed and needs to be placed back in production quickly, or to validate that a backup can be used in a disaster recovery scenario.

Admin Console Supports Live Sync Direct Replication for VMware

Admin Console supports direct replication from VMware IntelliSnap backup snapshots.

Live Sync Direct is used for replication operations from IntelliSnap backups. Live Sync Direct mounts a snapshot from an IntelliSnap backup, then reads data from the mount directly to the destination VM. Using snapshots eliminates the need to create a backup copy for replication, provides faster replication, and minimizes the impact on the production environment.

The snapshot can be a hardware snapshot from a storage array or a VM snapshot stored on the source VM.

Admin Console Supports Failover Groups for Amazon

You can create failover groups for Amazon instances and initiate failover operations and failback operations for a group.

Failover Groups provide orchestration of disaster recovery (DR) operations for a group of instances, based on Live Sync replication to a DR site (also called destination site or secondary site).

Key Features

For Amazon destinations, you can use failover operations for the following scenarios:

  • Failback: Switch back to the primary site after a failover.
  • Planned Failover: Switch to a DR site for maintenance of the primary site.
  • Unplanned Failover: Make the DR site active in an emergency. After a failover, you can perform a failback operation to return operations to the primary site.

VMs can be replicated to VMware or Amazon destination sites from streaming VMware backups, or to a VMware destination site using Live Sync Direct from IntelliSnap VMware backups.
