- New consulting offering from CommVault enables enterprises of all sizes to develop a service-centric approach to data protection
- Helps accelerate customers’ transition from traditional IT environments to nimble private cloud services, delivering value to the business in approximately six weeks
OCEANPORT, NJ—September 23, 2014— To tackle a perennial weakness in private cloud implementations that has prevented enterprises from reaping the benefits of modern cloud architectures, CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) today announced a new consulting service that enables customers to rapidly design data protection services as a critical component of their private cloud infrastructure.
Better quality IT services, greater agility and reduced risk are the top business benefits expected from private cloud adoption, according to a recent IDG Research survey commissioned by CommVault. Using CommVault’s Private Cloud Services Design offering, customers can now design a service-centric approach for data management supporting the private cloud in approximately six weeks, achieving improved quality of service levels, increased security and faster market response times. The new service is ideal for organizations that lack the necessary skills and experience to design a data management strategy to accelerate their time to benefit and increase their return on investment from private cloud technology.
“The benefits and barriers to private cloud adoption are causing organizations to seek strategic data management approaches that can maximize the value of their data and technology assets,” said Robert Kaloustian, vice president, worldwide technical services, CommVault. “CommVault’s new Private Cloud Services Design offering addresses cost, time and risk - the Achilles’ heel of private cloud implementation – to speed the transition to cloud infrastructure and help improve agility, business alignment and service level transparency.”
The new Private Cloud Services Design offering leverages industry best practices and the expertise of CommVault’s seasoned consultants, architects and engineers to help IT organizations create data management and protection services that ensure successful private cloud deployments. These data management services are developed using industry-accepted ITIL (formerly known as Information Technology Infrastructure Library) methodologies, while focusing on key services catalog elements such as service definitions, cost management, internal billing, operations and process management, organizational alignment, and data security.
“Private cloud technology is now mainstream-ready and is increasingly being used for business critical systems,” said Tony Lock, program director and analyst at Freeform Dynamics. “While techniques to optimize workload provisioning and management have been developing rapidly, facilities and best practices to implement effective data management and protection in a private cloud environment have lagged significantly. Closing this gap is critical for ongoing success.”
Through the new Private Cloud Services Design offering, CommVault works closely with its clients’ IT and business leaders to understand their cloud services strategy and ensure alignment with business and strategic requirements. This translates into collaborative development of a comprehensive service offerings vision, prioritized services pipeline, and defined integration points, roles and organizational structure. Additionally, the new service ensures proper design architecture for multi-tenancy, direct user access, properly designed customer portals and automation of key processes.
