OCEANPORT, N.J., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) –

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a teaching hospital of Harvard
Medical School that is consistently named a "Best Hospital" in US News & World
Report's annual rankings, has deployed CommVault® Simpana® software to
guarantee quality patient care through increased data protection, simplified
HIPAA compliance, and expedited access to vital medical records.


Simpana software replaced the hospital's legacy data backup solution to better
safeguard nearly 2 PB of crucial medical and patient data. The newly protected
data includes more than 400 clinical and business applications, and a BIDMC
custom clinical application called Center for Clinical Computing (CCC) that
leverages InterSystems CACHE, an advanced object database that handles huge
volumes of transactional data.

BIDMC reports that its decade-old data environment was fraught with
performance and reliability issues, and major gaps in reporting that made it
difficult to manage backups, requiring an inordinate amount of administrative
overhead. To address these problems, and an annual storage growth rate between
25 and 33 percent, BIDMC confidently deployed Simpana software and several
tiered storage solutions, including EMC CLARiiON CX4, Celerra NS-960 NAS,
Atmos cloud-based storage, and VNX. BIDMC uses Simpana 9.0 SP6 to support 411
virtual guests on VMware vSphere® 4 and 5 (hosted on 37 physical servers) and
about 300 physical machines. The team currently enjoys a backup success rate
of 99 percent.

Simpana software's single platform, centralized management and policy
automation has enabled BIDMC to significantly enhance staff productivity and
reduce overall administration costs through more efficient data and
information management. The BIDMC team now spends 40 percent less time on
backups, and more time planning and strategizing for the future.

"We had a lot of problems over the years and we weren't getting the right
answers or assistance. Our old platform didn't scale well and we had recurring
issues with memory usage. We also tried four different reporting approaches
and none of them worked very well," said Michael Passe, IT storage architect
for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. "We chose CommVault this year
because it was just a better solution. Instead of spending 60 to 70 percent of
our time on clinical, operational and business application backups, we're
spending 20 percent of our time on backups, and we spend the rest of the
timing thinking about what's next. When backup flares up in our industry, it's
critical, and we're spending a lot less time in emergency mode than we used
to…CommVault's technology has proven that it can handle anything we bring in."

"The team at Beth Israel has embraced modern data management and values its
impact on compliance, reporting and, ultimately, patient care excellence,"
said David West, senior vice president of worldwide marketing and business
development, CommVault. "They've leveraged CommVault's Simpana software to
integrate with VMware and Atmos cloud-based storage, and protect hundreds of
clinical, business and custom applications. They're saving time and money, and
now they can confidently plan for the future instead of spending their days
maintaining infrastructure."
