Cisco HyperFlex 4.0 with CommVault v1

January 2020

Commvault’s enhanced integration with Cisco HyperFlex™ enables customers to leverage these new capabilities with performance optimized for Cisco HyperFlex 4.0 and geared toward mission critical enterprise applications. This enhanced integration includes snap assisted backups using Commvault IntelliSnap technology, ensuring that critical workloads are easily recoverable when needed and reducing the time for enterprise recovery operations. This protection for Cisco HyperFlex is available as ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS, which combines Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery and Commvault HyperScale software integrated with Cisco UCS (Unified Compute System).

ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS provides confidence in three key areas, making sure data within Cisco HyperFlex 4.0 is protected and recoverable:

  • Coverage: Commvault is optimized for the demands of Cisco HyperFlex providing support for all file systems, enterprise applications and virtual platforms with policy-based data protection – now with AI-optimized backups for improved performance.
  • Flexibility: Commvault provides the control to migrate data to where it’s needed, when it’s needed – achieving complete enterprise workload protection. Integration with 60-plus cloud providers enables cloud flexibility, and ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS enables cloud economics with on-premises workloads. Enterprises avoid cloud lock-in and gain maximum visibility into their data, along with complete workload portability (often avoiding hefty cloud provider egress charges).
  • Agility: With scale-out and scale up options, customers gain the agility the enterprise demands while leveraging the combined power of Cisco HyperFlex and ScaleProtect with Cisco UCS.  When other data protection solutions fail to scale at the enterprise level, Commvault delivers with a single platform, eliminating data silos and point solutions, thereby decreasing cost, risk and complexity.


  • Scenario 1. Initial setup, Backup and Recovery operations
  • Scenario 2. Backing up to and restoring to S3 compatible storage
