CommVault, a provider of Unified Data Management solutions, has announced that it has introduced active migration of data for Novell NetWare server systems in its QiNetix 6.1 software suite. This capability reduces the amount of active data residing on primary storage, freeing primary storage to protect more business-critical data, increasing its useful life to the enterprise and reducing the time required to protect and recover NetWare data.
Through the QiNetix 6.1 unified data management solution, CommVault provides integrated backup, recovery and active migration of Novell NetWare data as well as object-level protection for eDirectory objects, including users and trees. CommVault also enables users to manage and protect data on Open Enterprise Server (OES) SUSE Linux with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and Novell Storage Services (NSS) volumes and properties on OES and SLES9 systems. Data protected on NetWare today can be restored into OES, ensuring the availability of critical information as customers retire and repurpose older systems.
For CommVault users evaluating OES and SUSE Linux and NetWare users looking for a migration path from NetWare 6.5, CommVault QiNetix 6.1 for Novell Open Enterprise Server SUSE Linux provides unified control with one console, a combined index, and support for device sharing in mixed NetWare, Open Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux environments.
CommVault QiNetix 6.1 for Novell adds key operating advantages and cost savings to users."For our heterogeneous environment, we chose CommVault's software because it included support for Novell," said Mike Campbell, director of PC systems and support, University of New Mexico Hospitals. "We use CommVault to manage the data in our heterogeneous environment, which includes approximately 60 Novell servers running a variety of clinical applications as well as GroupWise, eDirectory, iFolder, EGuide and Virtual Office. We are moving to OES, primarily to support applications,"
"With QiNetix 6.1, Novell users can be assured that a clear migration path to Novell Open Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux will include superior data protection and availability," said William Hurley, senior analyst, Data Mobility Group. "CommVault QiNetix makes it simple for administrators migrating to OES to improve data management and realize the total cost of ownership benefits of consolidation to a shared storage infrastructure that offers comprehensive data protection for heterogeneous environments."
