Commvault in Healthcare

Business Challenge:


A large integrated health care system located in Pennsylvania was in need of a solution to backup and protect their Epic environment. The organization was utilizing a number of different point solutions to backup their environment.  

The Solution:

ComSource provided a full Commvault solution which allowed the customer to backup their business environment as well as clinical data with one product on a single platform.

Commvault is fully ratified and approved with Epic. Not only were we able to backup, protect and archive, but we were also able to utilize Commvault to protect data while decommissioning their PACS environment.

Like Epic’s EHR technology solution, Commvault software is built from the ground up on a single platform with a unifying code base for integrated data and information management. All functions share the same DNA and back-end technologies, delivering the unparalleled advantages and benefits of a truly holistic approach for protecting, managing and accessing healthcare data.

Simpana software offers protection with a core software platform that is flexible, modular, and able to conquer new challenges as they emerge. The software does the jobs of many point-level products, only better -- more cost effectively -- and much more simply.


By leveraging Commvault’s data protection suite the software can capture, protect, and backup the entire Epic environment. The customer now has an automated clinical and IT data protection system which allows them to meet the required backup windows and helps to keep them on the Epic Honor Roll.

As the health care system acquires additional hospitals they are migrated to Epic and Commvault.
