Listening to our partners and evolving to meet their needs is one of the most important characteristics of a good partner. This past year especially, while the world was grappling with a devastating and unprecedented situation, two goals stood out for the entire Commvault team: to be resilient and to be a good partner. We understood that our partners needed us more than ever.
As we were all taking critical steps to weather the crisis and continue to be resilient, we connected with our partners, talked about their goals, and discussed how we can best support them. Their feedback was immeasurable, contributing greatly to the roll out of our enhanced Partner Advantage Program last fall, which centers around supporting our partners and customers in their business continuity efforts. And in less than a year, we have been honored to receive multiple recognitions from different industry peers and partners about our program and offerings.
Our once envisioned partner program that was built to accelerate partners in their digital transformation journey has earned us back-to-back accolades. After getting included in CRN’s Cloud Partner Program Guide 2020 and getting recognized as one of the Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Companies of 2021, our newly enhanced partner program has received a 5-Star rating in the 2021 CRN Partner Program Guide.
Proud and Grateful for the Recognition!
Every year, CRN publishes its annual guide, an ultimate listing of the most distinguished partner programs from different technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best services by going above and beyond in their partner programs.
I am thrilled to share that Commvault has, yet again, received a 5-Star rating in the 2021 CRN Partner Program Guide for our continuous efforts to support our partners in their journey.
Strength in Numbers
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” – this quote by Hellen Keller mirrors the philosophy of Commvault, and I am grateful to our Global Partner Organization for working so hard toward making this program fruitful to our partners’ success. Together as a team, we continue to focus on strengthening our global partnerships by empowering and accelerating our partners with our cloud initiatives.
What’s New in PY’22
This award came at a great time as we are currently rolling out enhancements to the PY22 partner program, which is built on four important pillars: innovation, collaboration, profitability and growth.
Innovation. We continue to offer our partners the industry’s most innovative portfolio of intelligent data services that are partner-ready to sell. This will enable our partners to stand out in the marketplace.
Collaboration. We rely on a strong collaborative selling model that positions our partners to win more often throughout the customer journey to hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Profitability. We keep our partners motivated through a modern, profitable, and predictable program that helps us earn more together.
Growth. We simplified the program with tools and resources, like marketing support, that will help our partners learn, grow and ultimately future proof their business with multiple choices that align to the greater good of their success and enable them to best meet the needs of their customers.
Partners, today, want to work with technology providers that offer all-in-one services: financial, sales, marketing, and technical resources. Commvault’s 5-star rating partner program has it all covered. We encourage our partners to take full advantage of the many tools and resources we offer through our globally recognized partner program.

Like you, we do not know how long this current situation will last or what might be the next “new normal,” but we do know one thing for sure – we are committed to supporting and standing by our partners through any given situation and dedicating our time to jointly building an ecosystem of the future.
