Enterprises today are inherently heterogeneous, running applications and supporting workloads across on-prem, edge and multiple clouds. As businesses accelerate their IT transformation, this hybrid multi-cloud presence is set to further expand. It is imperative, then, that enterprise data protection and data management solutions excel in all of these areas – across on-prem, edge and multiple clouds.
Gartner Critical Capabilities report assesses these types of solutions on various key aspects such as security, efficiency, scalability and performance, Data Center ecosystem, and reporting and analytics across the key use cases of on-prem, edge and cloud. In my conversations with CIO’s, IT leaders, and architects, these are exactly the key aspects they are concerned with when architecting their data management strategy to protect their crown jewels.
This is why we are thrilled and honored that Commvault Backup & Recovery has scored the highest in all three use cases in the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions: Data Center Environments (4.23/5), Cloud Environments (4.18/5), and Edge Environments (4.22/5). With the highest scores in all three use cases – for the third time in a row – we believe this is yet another validation of our commitment to be a trusted partner to our customers in protecting their data and workloads – no matter where they reside.
Enterprises are continuously evolving and expanding to meet business needs. Therefore, another critical accelerator of IT transformation is a data management solution that can flexibly evolve with the rest of IT.
“Our continuous innovation is designed with ultimate flexibility when it comes to data management – offering not only an enterprise software solution but also the ability to manage and protect enterprise data with HyperScale X as an integrated solution or via Metallic as a cloud-delivered DMaaS solution.”
Unfortunately, flexibility and breadth are often offered at the cost of simplicity in our industry. In contrast, Commvault breaks this paradigm with our “infinitely scalable, radically simple” approach. We bring together all management – across our broad set of supported workloads, flexible form factors and array of Intelligent Data Services – through the single experience of Commvault Command Center. This simplicity – with no compromise to flexibility and breadth – empowers customers to fast-track their business transformation aligning their data management to their broader IT strategy. As businesses modernize and transform, transitioning applications and workloads from one form factor or location to another (from on-prem to cloud, for example), we ensure they remain protected no matter where they are in this journey.
As an eleven-time Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant and back-to-back years with the highest scores in all three use cases in the Gartner Critical Capabilities report, we are grateful to our customers for partnering with us in this journey of continuous customer-first innovation and to our partners in building a data ecosystem with no boundaries. Our journey to solve the hard data management problems with elegant solutions continues … together with our dear customers and partners!
