Commvault simplifies cloud protection for enterprise Kubernetes workloads

Nigel Poulton, Kubernetes author, trainer and evangelist

Commvault, a data management provider across on-premises, cloud, and SaaS environments, expanded protection for Kubernetes workloads, including fully automated management, replication, migration, and security enhancements, across its entire portfolio.

How are Commvault solutions helping organisations?

The new features, delivered through Commvault Complete™ Data Protection and Metallic® offerings, provide customers with simple management and enterprise-grade protection for hybrid, multi-cloud environments. Organisations are increasingly adopting Kubernetes to modernise their environments and accelerate the migration of applications to the cloud.

According to Gartner, by 2025, 85% of enterprises will be running containerised applications in production. By integrating Kubernetes protection into its portfolio, Commvault is enabling enterprises to innovate. The latest Kubernetes data protection enhancements include: 

  • Complete, cloud-native protection and recoverability for the entire Kubernetes ecosystem, including full clusters, namespaces, and ETCD and SSL certification protection 
  • Faster, simpler development testing and lifecycle events with seamless migrations of Kubernetes applications between clusters, distributions, versions, and storage 
  • Cost-effective disaster recovery by replacing business-critical applications offsite for on-demand application recovery – with no long-running infrastructure  

What were the executives’ thoughts on the solutions?

“Using Commvault’s single platform, we are able to proactively monitor and assess risks, mitigate cyber threats to the business, and protect all workloads, including Kubernetes, in multi-clouds – reducing our OPEX by up to 40% compared to previous solutions,” said Bruno Bianchini, Head of Infrastructure & Technological Services – Global Digital Solutions, ENEL.

“Commvault proved to be the most effective to support our growth strategy and continue our digital transformation journey, without impacting productivity and customer service.”  

Named a leader and outperformer in GigaOm’s 2022 Radar report for Kubernetes Data Protection, Commvault’s Metallic portfolio is the only Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) solution to meet FedRAMP Ready High status, addressing a critical gap in the market. Partnering with NetApp, Commvault delivers Metallic Government Cloud, providing much needed Kubernetes data protection to federal and government agencies.

“I’m excited that Commvault’s announcements are bringing world-class data management solutions to Kubernetes,” said Nigel Poulton, Kubernetes author, trainer and evangelist.

“Having spent a lot of time in this space, it’s exciting to see industry leaders taking it seriously – something that’s essential for industries like banking and healthcare where the full spectrum of protection must be in place before they can deploy any workloads into the enterprise.”
