Back-up and archive specialist Commvault has announced a new strategic partnership with Google Cloud designed to to help enterprises leverage the range of cloud services available on the Google Cloud Platform.

Commvault says the partnership provides new opportunities for joint enterprise customers to scale “faster, innovate easier, and more securely protect, store and use data in the cloud”.

“Our enterprise customers are looking for support for their migration strategies to Google Cloud Platform,” said Adam Massey, director of Strategic Technology Partnerships, Google Cloud.

“And with that comes a requirement for comprehensive data protection. Commvault will help our customers accelerate their migration by making it easier and faster to move data to Google Cloud Platform.”

Commvault cites its recent executive cloud survey conducted in partnership with CITO Research, which showed that 56% of responding organisations are cloud-only or plan to move 100% of their workloads to the cloud.

And, in a separate cloud security survey commissioned by Google, research by MIT Sloan found that 75% of IT and business executives said data storage was their top workload deployed in the cloud today.

According to Commvault, these findings underscore the importance of cloud adoption for modernising IT processes, improving operational efficiencies and increasing business agility.

“Enterprise customers need flexibility to ensure high availability and reduced risk across their entire data infrastructure, which is why we support so many cloud storage options,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and chief executive, Commvault.

“Our analytics on cloud usage and recent surveys continue to reinforce the increasing need for the Google Cloud Platform as a high performance, flexible and reliable option for customers. Through the power of the Commvault data platform, we’re helping enterprise customers in both the public and private sectors take advantage of the capabilities of Google Cloud Platform as they continue on their multi-cloud journey.”

RECOVERING FROM RANSOMWARE

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.

Find out how one company used backup and cloud storage software to protect their company’s PCs and recovered all of their systems after a ransomware strike.
