- Company recognized for the fourth consecutive year for its completeness of vision and ability to execute
- Organizations continue shift toward snapshot-based data protection and unified data and information management to backup and recover applications, devices and virtual machines
OCEANPORT, NJ, June 23, 2014 – CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances for the fourth consecutive year.
According to Gartner, the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances “describes the evolution of backup, which incorporates new products, solutions and techniques for protecting, backing up and recovering physical server and virtual server files, applications, system images and remote offices and endpoint devices. These backup products provide features such as traditional backup to tape, backup to conventional disk or virtual tape library (VTL), data reduction, snapshot, heterogeneous replication, and continuous data protection (CDP). These solutions may be provided as software only, or as an integrated appliance that contains all or substantial components of the backup application, such as backup management server or a media server.”
CommVault believes it is at the forefront of this evolution to unlock business value from backup data and, with its Simpana® 10 software, has unified archiving, backup, reporting, snapshot management, eDiscovery and secure data access within a single software platform. CommVault is also at the forefront of providing the automated management capabilities to securely move data in and out of the cloud. CommVault’s technology provides users with instant information access across all data – from endpoint devices to the data center and in the cloud – CommVault Simpana 10 software empowers organizations and their employees with self-service access, compliance search and analytics tools for improved productivity. Using Simpana 10, customers can slash costs by as much as half, reduce administrative overhead by up to 80 percent and lower aggregate support costs by up to 35 percent.
“It gives us great pride that CommVault has been recognized as a Leader by Gartner for four years running and we feel it reinforces our commitment to helping customers transform the value of their business data,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, CommVault. “We believe this is continued validation that our comprehensive, singular approach to data and information management is where the industry is heading and that Simpana software is uniquely capable of reducing risk and costs as companies virtualize and extend their operations into cloud infrastructures.”
The rapid growth of data, virtual machines and the adoption of cloud have raised a new set of challenges that overwhelm traditional data protection methods. Gartner states that “by 2018, 40 percent of organizations will augment with additional products or replace their current backup application,” and that “by 2016, 20 percent of organizations, up from 7 percent today, will employ only snapshot and replication techniques, abandoning traditional backup and recovery.” CommVault’s single platform approach to modernize data management delivers automated protection and rapid recovery of applications and virtual servers and drive complexity out of today’s application-centric environments. Through Simpana IntelliSnap® snapshot management technology, CommVault currently supports all the major storage arrays – the industry’s broadest support for integrating with and leveraging array-based replication and snapshots without custom scripting.
