Madrid, 24 October, 2017 – Telefónica Business Solutions, a leading provider of a wide range of integrated communications solutions for the B2B market, has announced that the object storage service (OBS) belonging to the Telefónica Open Cloud has been certified by Commvault as compatible with its backup and archive solution.

As use of the public cloud becomes more and more commonplace, our clients are having to navigate this period of transition and decide upon improved management tools and methods. Telefónica's strategy lies in guaranteeing the coexistence of local, traditional data centres with infrastructures such as the Telefonica Open Cloud service, thus allowing our clients to safeguard their data in a way that is secure, reliable, flexible and cost-effective

The certification of the Telefonica Open Cloud service to make use of Commvault's solutions will provide our clients with an array of easy, simple and flexible data backup solutions. The configuration of the OpenCloud Object Storage as Cloud Storage for the repository of backups on the cloud allows clients to:

  • Optimise costs: Reducing the space occupied on the local backup platform, moving certain backups to OpenCloud.
  • Ensure security and business continuity: Implementing Disaster Recovery solution by replicating certain backups to OpenCloud. These copies can even by used to restore on OpenCloud machines or in an alternative location in the event of a disaster of the client data centre.
  • Guarantee the availability and durability of their data and business systems on OpenCloud: Performing backups on virtual servers of Telefonica Open Cloud on the OBS by enabling an image of the Commvault backup solution.

In addition, Telefónica's Open Cloud offers an image with preloaded Commvault software to perform concept tests with minimal effort, with simple configuration guides available at the Huawei help desk.

Commvault is a leading provider in data and information management, thanks to innovation, advanced technology and the independence of its hardware.
