Commvault has announced that its data platform has been selected by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to power its new HPE GreenLake Backup solution.

Managed through HPE’s IT consumption service and pre-integrated on HPE servers, storage and networking technology, Commvault software will provide customers with enterprise-class data protection and reliability covering the entire lifecycle of a backup environment.

HPE GreenLake Backup is an on-premises deployment that promises cloud-like prices.

This is the first announcement from Commvault since the appointment of their new head of worldwide partnerships and market development.

Through its support of HPE’s backup solution, Commvault aims to simplify the backup experience for customers and assist them in keeping up with compliance challenges, tightening resource requirements and data growth.

“Today’s announcement brings together two industry leaders in Commvault and HPE for the benefit of our mutual customers with an end-to-end backup service, deployed and delivered in the privacy of their own data centre,” says Commvault chairman, president and CEO N. Robert Hammer.

“Through this strategic technology partnership, we are delighted to extend our presence in the vital enterprise market with HPE with a new service offering that enables IT staff to focus on more strategic initiatives while lowering operational expenses and reducing risks related to security, business continuity and regulatory compliance.”

HPE Pointnext SVP and GM Ana Pinczuk comments, "We are excited to partner with Commvault to deliver a complete ‘pay as you go’ backup solution that removes the complexities inherent in capacity planning and the burdens of provisioning backups and managing data growth."

"Instead we deliver a successfully-executed backup, the outcome that our customers care about. With HPE’s metering technology and management services to run our customers storage needs on either HPE StoreOnce or HPE 3PAR Storage, organizations are able to gain instant backup capacity, within the control and security of their own data centre, deployed ahead of time and ready to be activated when needed.”
