CommVault Simpana 10 is around for 5 months. I have working with version day from day 1.
This article will list my top 10 of new features.
- Smart client groups
- New software support:
Hyper-V 3.0 (including .vhdx)
- Staging area for the CommServe cache
With this feature, there is little chance the Software cache will get corrupt.
- New content indexing
The new content indexing is competly based on open source software from the apache foundation.
- Content store
Not really new, but now open to other software and vendors, the store where all data sits.
- VMware enhancements:
Failed Virtual machine backup
Check free datastore space
- CommVault Edge
This piece of software enables access to your (backup and archive) data from any place, device and time.
- partitioned DeDuplication database
The new version 4 of the DeDup engine has a nice feature: partitioned DeDup DB.
- One pass
Already present in version 9, but now the default and much better integrated.
Also available for several NAS devices.
- Desktop and laptop optiom
Auto backup of modified files (CDR)
Smart content definitions based on file type and content
