Data protection is a challenge for most organisations and many are very dissatisfied with their current solutions – common issues tend to be:
To address the problem NetApp and CommVault have created joint reference architectures that consist of NetApp E-Series storage and CommVault Simpana software – just add virtual or physical servers and away you go.
So how do these joint reference architectures solve these issues?
So we know it is good, but how much does it all cost?
|Hypervisor licenses||Non-hypervisor licenses||Replicated Disk Libraries||Price|
|Small||6 CPUs||1 Tb||2x31 TB NL-SAS usable||£23,000|
|Medium||12 CPUs||2Tb||2x103 TB NL-SAS usable||£63,000|
|Large||24 CPUs||4Tb||2x181 TB NL-SAS usable||£85,000|
The beauty of this solution is that it includes two disk libraries therefore backing up to tape will often not be required, unless very long term retention is needed and even then it is likely to be very infrequent.
The above table is designed to demonstrate the affordability of the solution, in reality most organisations would want to customise both the software licenses and the amount of storage capacity to meet their exact needs.
