to do was purchase one Hyper Converge appliance instead of getting servers, storage and licenses separately. I no longer need to deal with multiple vendors. I just work with Commvault and my backup infrastructure, now we complete our backup in less than 45 minutes and just fifteen minutes for critical application management
systems, thanks to power of Commvault HyperScale.” –
