Commvault, HPE Expand Alliance with Commvaults inclusion in the HPE Complete Resell Program

Posted 03/06/2018 by Mark Bridges

We’ve enjoyed a long partnership with HPE, and I'm excited to announce that Commvault is included in the HPE Complete program. HPE Complete is a worldwide resell program that enables the purchase of "best-in-class," third-party solutions, such as Commvault software - from HPE via a single HPE purchase order. It's backed by HPE Complete Assured interop testing and validation, which means Commvault software has been tested and validated with industry leading HPE storage and server hardware.

With this agreement, government, healthcare and other enterprise customers can easily purchase HPE Complete Commvault Software solutions optimized for HPE storage and servers – including HPE StoreOnce Systems, 3PAR StoreServ, Nimble Storage, and HPE Apollo and ProLiant servers – anywhere in the world through the choice of their HPE representative or channel partner. As a result, HPE customers can simplify backup and recovery, management and activation of their data, whether it is located on-premises or in the cloud, all while accelerating their digital transformation.

As part of the HPE Complete program, HPE customers will not only have access to the comprehensive Commvault Data Platform but also to Commvault HyperScale™ technology that provides a scale-out solution for today’s modern cloud-like architectures. This combination provides a truly "complete" enterprise backup and recovery solution available from HPE partners.

Customers also get additional benefits from the association including:

  • The confidence of the HPE Complete Assured interop assurance validation to know the products will work together
  • Superior customer experience, knowing that HPE will help resolve any issues that may arise
  • The convenience of purchasing from a single HPE partner at a competitive price (versus having to buy from separate vendors)

Similarly, HPE partners have the benefit of being able to sell HPE storage and server platforms along with Commvault software as a complete solution on a single invoice, with the confidence of knowing the hardware and software work together.

Organizations of all sizes are facing increasing data management challenges, spurred equally by an exponential growth in the amount of data to store, manage and analyze, and a high risk of security breaches. To manage this challenge: customers require a robust, proven backup and recovery solution that can help them respond to the growing variety of threats; can flexibly and reliably manage data stored on-premises and in the cloud; and offer automation and policy-based capabilities to scale seamlessly while handling the continuing influx of data.

The Commvault Data Platform is built to address all of these requirements. And now that it is available on the HPE Corporate Price List, it is easier for customers worldwide to acquire and deploy these solutions with the design flexibility to meet their unique deployment needs. Whether customers are refreshing infrastructure with new HPE servers, migrating workloads to and from the cloud, or designing a converged system with performance-optimized flash arrays like 3PAR StoreServ or Nimble Storage, the Commvault Data Platform is available to deliver proven enterprise-class backup and recovery, and data management. Offering the most expansive support for public cloud providers, hypervisors, big data support and database protection, Commvault software on HPE hardware can accelerate customers’ adoption of, and transition to, a hybrid cloud strategy across business-critical and secondary application use cases.

By expanding our partnership with HPE, Commvault will make it seamless for customers to adopt the "best of breed" solutions in a unified stack that enhances the already strong value proposition of the HPE data center portfolio.

We continue to work with HPE to develop innovative data management solutions for the modern data-driven enterprise, including HPE GreenLake Backup powered by Commvault. HPE could have chosen anyone to partner with its GreenLake Backup solution, but it chose Commvault based on our history of innovation - and being recognized as an industry leader in the backup and recovery space. Learn how HPE along with Commvault makes it easier to backup, recover, manage and optimize your data.
