Joins Cisco SolutionsPlus Program to sell Commvault Software for the modern data center
In August, Commvault announced that it joined Cisco’s SolutionsPlus program, resulting in the Commvault Data Platform being added to Cisco’s Global Price List. With Commvault on the Global Price List, it is now easier for Cisco and its global network of resellers to sell and deliver Commvault’s data management solutions to customers.
Commvault joins the Cisco SolutionsPlus Program at a time when enterprise and mid-market customers are facing increased data challenges fueled by the exponential growth in the amount of data to store, manage and analyze, and the ever increasing risk of security breaches. Commvault mitigates this challenge through its robust data platform that defends against the growing variety of threats, while providing customers the flexibility to reliably manage data stored in the data center and in the cloud.
Independent third-parties agree: Commvault’s a leader
In September, Commvault announced it had been positioned by Forrester as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Data Resiliency Solutions, Q3 2017, receiving the highest score in the Current Offering category.
The previous month, Commvault announced it was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions – marking the seventh consecutive year Commvault has been named a leader in Gartner’s market evaluation for backup and recovery. Among Leaders, Gartner positioned Commvault furthest on completeness of vision.
As these reports from independent research firms demonstrate, Commvault has established a leadership position in the data management market by directly addressing enterprises’ evolving data backup and recovery needs with innovative solutions that allow them to move data to the cloud, avoid vendor lock-in and quickly scale to support rapid growth.
Expands partnership with Oracle to support Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
At this month’s Oracle OpenWorld 2017, Commvault extended its longstanding partnership with Oracle through its support for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to help customers protect and recover data workloads in and to the cloud.
Using Commvault Software with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, customers can leverage the power of the cloud while still managing data as if it never left the physical data center. Customers can also use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a disaster recovery target to mitigate risk and potential loss of business and reputational damage.
Accelerates the digital transformation for customers within the Microsoft enterprise
At September’s Microsoft Ignite, Commvault showcased its ability to help customers accelerate data migration through its support for new Microsoft technologies and features, such as Azure Archive Blob Storage and Azure Data Box.
Commvault’s support of Azure, now including Archive Blob Storage, advances the digital transformation for customers as their need for data management, including protection, archive and disaster recovery become increasingly impactful. Through the Commvault Data Platform, customers can accelerate data migration to the cloud, enabling them to use and manage their data in the cloud to gain strategic business value and insight.
Strong customer momentum
Commvault is seeing growing traction for its solutions, especially from financial services, healthcare and SLED customers. This momentum has been fueled by the growing need to protect and use data to drive digital transformation, the accelerated shift to the cloud to drive increased agility, innovation and collaboration, and increased GDPR and other data privacy regulatory demands.
For example, over the past year Commvault has announced the global growth of new and existing customers and MSPs that have expanded their investment into Commvault’s portfolio of data management solutions, including financial services companies (Alfa-Insurance, Foshan Rural Commercial Bank, SK Sberbank Insurance), healthcare organizations (Medline Industries, University of California San Diego Health, Alaska Native Medical Center) and state and local government agencies (Washington State – Department of Licensing (DIS), Wollongong City Council).
