Cut IT costs and improve resiliency

Data volumes are increasing, but IT budgets are not. Dispersed data and multiple backup products cause coverage gaps, cost extra money, and waste staff time.  It doesn’t have to be like this.

Enterprises choose Commvault for best-in-class efficient data management practices to realize significant gain in time, cost, and headcount.

Efficiently managing data is about reducing operating costs while also meeting data protection SLAs. Cost savings can be found in simple areas like integrated deduplication on-premises during a cloud migration, or in the cloud. IT budgets can also find efficiency in more complex initiatives, like cloud storage autoscaling, saving effort when workloads are ready to move to lower cost cloud services.

Each time-saving measure can free up IT staff for more strategic projects. Other IT projects can benefit from the money saved through smarter data management practices. 

“We’ve had a reduction of around 60% in dedicated storage costs and improved service response times around 70%.”

– Acens, a Telefonica company

Eliminate data silos across complex environments

Complex enterprise environments introduce risk when there are data silos – pockets of data not well managed. The enterprise approach to data management has to become more efficient.

This unmanaged data introduces a business integrity gap.

The business integrity gap is where the organization’s data environment is today and where the data environments should be in order for the organization to thrive, accelerate, and digitally transform.

Commvault solves the business integrity gap with the Intelligent Data Services Platform.  A flexible, forward-looking architecture for comprehensive and secure data management, the Intelligent Data Services Platform helps enterprises thrive, accelerate, and digitally transform.

Commvault best-in-class technology empowers organizations to quickly and easily protect diverse workloads ensuring data is available for business users.

Why other products don’t compare

Purchases of appliances or extra storage capacity adding more cost and IT operations time.

Multiple products, multiple licenses, multiple headaches. Point products that cover just one workload or storage – SaaS or email or cloud – increase expenses and complexity.

Slow to introduce new critical technologies and use cases, point products restrict busy IT teams.

Save time on data protection

IT teams need to spend less time keeping the lights on and more time supporting new technology initiatives.

Data silos, inefficiently tiered storage capacity, and repetitive operational tasks all add risk, increase costs, and consume IT staff time.

From faster backups at scale to rapid recovery of data, Commvault customers are able to save time on data protection. Speed is important. Recovering an entire data center or a single file, Commvault makes overall data management faster, simpler, and more efficient.

Reduce IT workload with data protection innovation

Choose innovation over tedious work. Commvault data management eliminates manual tasks like maintaining enterprise SLAs in disparate systems, writing scripts to move workloads to the cloud, or hunting for data across silos.

Commvault innovation continually delivers effort-saving features and support for the latest technologies. With Commvault, enterprises customers confidently automate and streamline data management, saving weeks of work and 2-3 full-time equivalents of staff.

Enterprises who use Commvault see results:

  • Unmatched breadth of coverages across on-premises, hybrid and cloud
  • Consistent SLAs across workload types, regardless of location, saving time and effort
  • Clear, accessible reports to show the data protection environment
  • Scalable coverage as new technologies come online
  • Faster RTO and RPO
  • Reliable, proven backup

Enterprises find efficiency, more time for IT teams to focus on business initiatives, and extra budget to reinvest in strategic projects.

Supported Technologies

Commvault innovation supports the technologies you need today and what’s in your future.

Eliminate backup products for cost savings

Older backup products may hold back enterprise goals and increase costs. Commvault data management helps you eliminate backup products to find efficiency and cost savings.

Customers using other vendors encounter high costs due to the need for multiple tools, products that have complexity and are not necessarily well integrated. This lack of alignment restricts scalability and creates silos that decrease visibility to the data – reducing IT productivity and increasing overall risk.

Challenges of traditional backup

Hidden costs

  • Additional cloud gateways to transfer data to the cloud
  • External appliances for cloud deduplication
  • An entirely different product for SaaS backup
  • Additional backup products for specific locations


  • Multiple interfaces
  • Limitations in cloud coverage
  • Multiple products
  • Gaps in coverage for critical SaaS applications

Lack of innovation

  • Coverage gaps for enterprise SaaS
  • Limited or no support for DBaaS
  • Limited or no support for containers

Commvault supports the technologies you need today – and the strategic technology goals in your future. With flexible delivery options – including SaaS – Commvault data management gives today’s enterprises options for comprehensive coverage and unmatched efficiency.
