As SharePoint continues to grow in size and stature, it is becoming increasingly critical for organizations to find ways to optimize, protect and manage vital SharePoint environments. To that end, CommVault's new Application Data Management (ADM) bundle, which is based on award-winning CommVault® Simpana® software and is available in a flexible capacity licensing model, is making it easier for both channel partners and customers to cost-effectively address the challenges of managing massive amounts of SharePoint data while streamlining migrations to SharePoint 2010.News FactsCommVault has announced an Application Data Management (ADM) bundle that provides integrated backup, recovery and archive in a single solution, eliminating the need to install and manage separate data management applications in Microsoft SharePoint environments. The ADM bundle integrates CommVault® Simpana® 9 software modules for Backup and Recovery and Archive    with pre-defined SharePoint reference architectures and operational guidelines to simplify deployment and protection.With CommVault's SharePoint ADM bundle, channel partners now can offer customers the benefits of enterprise-class backup, fast and reliable recovery, as well as low-cost retention of SharePoint databases and systems. Pricing for the software component of CommVault's ADM Bundle begins at $25,000 and includes extensive backup, recovery and archive functionality. The CommVault bundle is available as a software capacity licensing SKU, and includes reference architectures and leading practice guidelines to help channel partners and their customers quickly and easily match backup, recovery and archive needs with appropriate hardware and services for optimal data protection.As a longstanding Microsoft partner and recent recipient of the 2011 Microsoft Server Platform Partner of the Year, CommVault is committed to helping Microsoft customers better manage data in Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint Server, SQL Server, Azure and Hyper-V environments.

Fully automated archive policies drive the movement of stale, infrequently accessed data to secondary, less expensive storage tiers, which is a major consideration for customers with growing SharePoint databases and systems.CommVault's Application Data Management bundle also is ideally suited for Microsoft Exchange, SQL, Hyper-V, Azure    and VMware environments. Furthermore, the company's flexible capacity licensing model lets customers change scope, scale and protection methods for little additional cost or management overhead.Additionally, CommVault has further simplified archive data recall, enabling documents to be retrieved quickly in one step for an improved user experience. Migrations to SharePoint 2010 are simplified, thanks to "out-of-place recovery," which enables users to easily use separate, independent backup copies for migrating SharePoint documents to the latest version.Supporting QuotesMark Conley, senior director of North American channels for CommVault: "CommVault is making strides in protecting ever-growing SharePoint Server farms by providing our channel partners and their customers with a complete application data management solution. As a result, we're making it easier, faster and more affordable to purchase, deploy, set-up, operate, protect and archive SharePoint systems on a daily basis."
