 Xsky object storage is officially certified by CommVault, a global leader in the field of backup


For customers, the use of Certified Solutions and deployment in accordance with best practices will help smooth project implementation and improve deployment efficiency. Moreover, once there is a problem in the implementation process, through the joint communication mechanism of xsky and CommVault, it can quickly locate and solve the problem, and solve the users worries.

From business data to data assets, for todays enterprises and organizations in rapid transformation, it architecture of enterprises must be further simplified, data isolated islands should be broken, and data center modernization should be realized through smooth docking of ecology. In order to achieve this goal, we have actively established a close technical cooperation relationship with xsky, the leader of Chinas software defined storage market, and are committed to transforming the collaborative achievements of both sides into a key boost for the digital transformation of enterprises.

With the explosive growth of enterprise unstructured data, the complexity of data protection and storage is greatly increased. In order to meet this challenge, we have established a research and development level partnership with CommVault, a global leader in data protection. We have continuously deepened our mutual product certification, platform docking, customer scenario verification, etc., and quickly applied these fruitful work results to customer projects to fully release the value of customer data.

01 strong cooperation

Because of its low cost and good scalability, object storage has become an ideal choice for modern enterprise backup target storage, and even many enterprises use it to replace the traditional physical tape library. However, backup software does not necessarily support all object storage. Although the object storage adopts the standard S3 interface, the functions of backup software are complex, such as supporting re deletion, direct pull-up of virtual machine and other advanced functions. In fact, there are certain requirements for object storage.

The mainstream backup software in the industry has a set of strict object storage authentication system, through which the object storage can obtain the official support of backup software.

Communult is recognized as the world leader in data recovery. According to Gartners latest magic quadrant of data center backup and recovery solutions 2020, CommVault is in the leadership Quadrant for the ninth consecutive time.

Xsky object storage has been ranked first in China market for three consecutive years. According to IDCs Q1 report, the market share of xsky object storage is as high as 1 / 3, which is close to the sum of the second, third and fourth manufacturers.

Through authentication, xsky object store can not only be used as backup target storage of CommVault, but also backup data in xsky object store.

02 massive small file backup scenario verification

In many advanced enterprises, object storage is not only used as backup storage, but also as primary storage, especially for cloud native applications. In other words, the data stored in the object also needs to be backed up. CommVault is one of the few mainstream backup vendors that support backup objects to store data.

In order to verify the backup capability, xsky and CommVault built a massive small file backup test environment in Beijing. They found that under the multitask concurrent scenario, the backup speed can reach about 220mb / s, about 4500 50kb objects are backed up per second, and 18tb data can be backed up 24 hours a day, about 380 million objects. Since CommVault supports the mode of always incremental backup, this performance can basically meet the needs of most enterprises for massive file backup.
