Advanced backup with Commvault

The UK’s foremost Commvault managed service provider

As the UK’s foremost Commvault MSP, we provide enterprise-grade backup and recovery; all managed by our engineers here in the UK and supported 24/7/365.

In a nutshell, our partnership with Commvault enables us to look after your data, keep it safe and available, so you don’t have to worry.


We implement Commvault as standard within our eCloud and Enterprise solutions, to reduce your risk of data loss, improve your business’ efficiency and help save you money. Advanced Backup with Commvault is designed to help you protect, access and manage your data easily.

Compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems, and all server file systems – EXT3, EXT4, XFS, GFS and NTFS.

Suitable for use with clustered solutions and Business Continuity Platform (BCP)

Works synchronously with Microsoft’s Distributed File System (DFS), Exchange, Hyper-V and SQL Server, as well as MySQL and PostgreSQL

Allows for easy deduplication and compression of data; provides file-level backups and includes bare metal recovery.

Data encryption can be enabled, with a dedicated media agent.

Can back up your data stored in SQL Server and MySQL up to every fifteen minutes – other backup software will typically do this once a day.

Hyper-V and VMware VM snapshots backed up daily as standard.

Your data can be retained for three years or longer, unlike many backup solutions which may set a 30-day limit.

View the details of VM backups in ANS Portal, including your most recent successful and failed backups, and total backup storage used.

The shortest Return To Operation [RTO] possible.

Your data backed up as frequently as every 15 mins, not the usual every 24 hours.

Your data is retained for 28 days, not the standard 7 days.

Protect, access and manage

In addition, Commvault is entirely customisable to fit your unique needs, and has proven benefits for businesses; it can cut storage-related costs by up to 50%; can reduce administrative overheads by up to 80%; and can lower aggregated annual support costs by up to 35%.

Things to consider

  • Commvault supports virtual machine snapshots on the paid-for version of VMware. However, on the free version of VMware, only file-level backups are supported.
  • Granular restores are only supported on Linux OS if you use EXT3 file structures. For any other file type, you’ll need to do a full restore followed by a manual file extraction.
  • We suggest you keep enough space available on your hosting solution to restore snapshots, should you ever need to do so.

Managed detection, response and SOC

Managed detection

Deploy next-generation endpoint and anti-virus protection, baseline hardening assessment, proactive attack prevention (e.g. brute force blocking), virus scanning, detection rule management, external vulnerability scanning, dashboards, metrics, reporting and alerting directly to you, the customer.

Managed response

Proactive 24×7/365 incident response to detected threats, external threat intelligence feeds to detect bad actors, monthly security reporting, vulnerability remediation, proactive threat prevention through SOAR playbooks and a glossary of use cases to protect businesses.

Managed security operations centre (SOC)

All data is fed directly into Azure Sentinel, benefit from event correlation from multiple data sources, with Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning constantly updating and identifying ongoing attack patterns. Evolving security use case management to ensure new threats to businesses are detected, production of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) playbooks and rulesets, and built-in penetration testing throughout the contract lifecycle.
