Commvault UDI – a new CPUU

[Preamble: I am a delegate of Storage Field Day 14. My expenses, travel and accommodation are paid for by GestaltIT, the organizer and I am not obligated to blog or promote the technologies presented at this event. The content of this blog is of my own opinions and views]

I am here at the Commvault GO 2017. Bob Hammer, Commvault’s CEO is on stage right now. He shares his wisdom and the message is clear. IT to DT. IT to DT? Yes, Information Technology to Data Technology. It is all about the DATA.

The data landscape has changed. The cloud has changed everything. And data is everywhere. This omnipresence of data presents new complexity and new challenges. It is great to get Commvault acknowledging and accepting this change and the challenges that come along with it, and introducing their HyperScale technology and their secret sauce – Universal Dynamic Index.

I am beginning to see Commvault taking a page from their past to drive their new vision – Powerful Simplicity – for the future. Earlier, in my previous blog, I spoke about Commvault’s Common Technology Engine core foundation as the key enabler and catalyst to put Commvault as the leader in the backup and recovery today.

As things change, as the cauldron of data swirls across organizations, data silos appear everywhere. New challenges push the limit of managing data for the organiation. The Commvault Universal Dynamic Index should become the core of CPUU of all organizations.

CPUU? Not Central Processing Unit like the x86 processor. I call it CPUU – as Central Protection Universal Unit.. Organization must start to leverage of a centralized data platform like Commvault. The CPUU, the Central Protection Universal Unit, should be the heart and soul of all data in all organizations. Addressing the needs of data protection, data recovery, data search, data compliance, data analytics and so much more is key to drive data confidence and trust in the data in all organizations. Data silos, data duplications, multiple versions, disjointed versions of data will be a thing of the past to drive new applications and workloads and new businesses and innovations with a centralized data platform such as Commvault.

Universal Dynamic Index, presented right here by Bob Hammer right now, is the new CTE of the Commvault Data Platform. It, in my point of view, is Powerful Simplicity.

I am a technology blogger with 20+ years of IT experience. I write heavily on technologies related to storage networking and data management because that is my area of interest and expertise. I introduce technologies with the objectives to get readers to *know the facts*, and use that knowledge to cut through the marketing hypes, FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) and other fancy stuff. Only then, there will be progress.

I am involved in SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and as of October 2013, I have been appointed as SNIA South Asia & SNIA Malaysia non-voting representation to SNIA Technical Council. I was previously the Chairman of SNIA Malaysia until Dec 2012.

As of August 2015, I am returning to NetApp to be the Country Manager of Malaysia & Brunei. Given my present position, I am not obligated to write about my employer and its technology, but I am indeed subjected to Social Media Guidelines of the company. Therefore, I would like to make a disclaimer that what I write is my personal opinion, and mine alone. Therefore, I am responsible for what I say and write and this statement indemnify my employer from any damages.
