    We're planning to used HyperScale solution, based on the reference architecture we have some misunderstanding about encryption platform.

    We would like to know if data disks are natively encrypted by using scaled out storage, or do we need to enabled encryption on deduplication database to protect all data on brick disk?

    On documentation, reference guide, lot of informations about this.

    Thank you in advanced for your help

    "All data has value and it is imperative to have versions of data to track changes over time and recover from corruption, whether inadvertent or malicious. Commvault’s data verification and integrity checks ensure all managed data is accessible and valid. Data verification confirms the health of data written to the HyperScale platform. Verification is performed immediately after data is transferred or on a scheduled basis. Data integrity is ensured during data transfer to and from the platform and when read. All data on the platform is protected by NIST FIPS 140-2 certified encryption for date in-flight, at rest or both. Encryption keys are managed by Commvault software and stored in the meta-data database."

    If your disks are self-encrypting (SEDs) then you should not need to enable encryption on the DDB. Otherwise, you will need to enable encryption on the DDB to take advantage of Commvault software encryption. There is no native encryption on the ScaleOut storage library in Commvault.
