Commvault is “in the zone” – a mindset and special place often reserved for athletes on a scoring streak.
While no one here will argue that customer success is one of the most important validations of our business, it’s hard not to be impressed with Commvault’s recent string of industry accolades for its products, services and people under Sanjay Mirchandani’s leadership. The recent wave of recognition and company momentum across all areas of the business speaks for itself.
Just this month, Commvault received word that its Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery solution had been named a finalist for TechTarget’s product storage awards in the category for backup and disaster recovery hardware, software and services. Judged by an impartial panel of analysts, consultants and users, TechTarget’s product of the year award program helps buyers identify the best products amid a crowded field. It’s kind of a big deal. While the winners in each category will be announced in February on SearchStorage.com, we feel we’ve already won.
Commvault was also included in Solutions Review’s Backup and Disaster Recovery and Data Management Software buyer’s guides while Hedvig – a company we recently acquired if you haven’t heard 😉 – was included in the Enterprise Data Storage guide. Solutions Review releases these guides to assist organizations during the research and discovery phase of buying business software. Editors compile each Buyer’s Guide using research, analyst reports, industry experts and product demos. These guides are scientific and well-respected. While it’s great to see Commvault recognized in two guides, it’s also noteworthy that competitors such as Rubrik, Veeam and Veritas were only recognized in one.
Last but certainly not least, taking center stage in our proverbial trophy room, just a few months ago Forrester named Commvault a Leader in Data Resiliency Solutions, while Gartner recognized Commvault as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. Forrester ranked Commvault the highest in its Current Offering category, while Gartner positioned Commvault furthest for completeness of vision in its Leaders quadrant and highest for ability to execute in its entire Magic Quadrant for the 8th consecutive year.
