Commvault has been in use as a data protection solution for years and is now looking to replace its existing storage solution (EMC), for its entire customer environments.

Commvault provides data backup through a single interface. Through the gradual deployment of Ceph S3 in several expansion stages, the customer built confidence in Ceph as a storage technology and more and more backups are gradually being transferred to the new backend.

In the first phase, Ceph S3 was allowed to excel in its performance and scalability capabilities.

In the following phases, the focus will be on flexibility and use as unified storage for cloud computing and Kubernetes.

For all these scenarios, the customer relies on Ceph as an extremely scalable, high-performance and cost-effective storage backend.

Over 1 PB of backup data and more than 500 GBytes per hour of backup throughput can be easily handled by Ceph S3 and it is ready to grow even further with the requirements in the future.

After in-depth consultation, we were able to exceed the customer’s expectations for the Ceph cluster in production.
