Helping you get more from your Microsoft environment

Commvault has been a close partner of Microsoft for more than 15 years. Commvault has built a single platform that unifies and automates data management across all the Microsoft operating systems and applications your organization relies on every day — simplifying the way you protect, access and share data.

Powered by Microsoft technology

Our data management platform was built with Microsoft Windows Server and SQL Server at its foundation. That integration makes it seamless and easy to protect data, ensure compliance and facilitate sharing across your Microsoft environment — whether your infrastructure is on premise or off premise, in a private cloud or Azure, or anything in between.

Our longstanding collaboration with Microsoft on technology development, sales and support is a key reason we’re a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner — and why we were named 2014 Microsoft Server Platform Partner of the Year.

Commvault provides the only data management platform you need to move, manage and use data across on-premises and cloud locations – the new hybrid IT.

With your existing Azure Subscription and our Azure Marketplace trial, you can quickly and easily setup Azure as a target for Commvault. Try us for 60 days and learn how Commvault can help you seamlessly extend your datacenter to the cloud and enable a new level of business agility.

One platform for your entire Microsoft environment

With Commvault, you no longer have to use individual point products to manage the data in each of your Microsoft applications. Our single platform unifies data management throughout the entire application lifecycle, from test/dev and production to archiving and retirement — speeding up backup and recovery, simplifying snapshot management, making deduplication more efficient, and making eDiscovery more robust.

Version independence for
easy migration

Our deep integration with the full range of Microsoft products lets you migrate with confidence to the latest version of Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, Windows Server and more. The virtual content repository built into our software lets you and your end users search for any file from any version of any Microsoft application — on disk, on tape or in the cloud — and restore it into the latest version of that application. Your virtual repository is accessible anywhere, from any device, with plug-ins for direct access from Outlook or Windows Explorer.

Trusted by Microsoft

Microsoft uses Commvault’s data management platform to backup, restore and replicate the nightly builds and source code for its Office suite of products, and to protect both the Xbox Live environment and the Microsoft Global Foundation Services that power the company’s data center network. Microsoft also calls on members of the Commvault team to share their expertise at many conferences and events each year, including Microsoft Ignite.

Virtual machines and the cloud

Commvault has relied on Microsoft Azure for its own data protection, disaster recovery and archive strategies since 2008. This experience, combined with our Microsoft-centric architecture, helps you get more value from your virtualized resources.


We make it easy to integrate with and manage data and workloads in the Azure cloud. With Commvault, you get a single solution to backup and restore both to and in the cloud — including on premise VMware, Hyper-V and Amazon Web Services (AWS) virtual machines. Combined with our simplified Azure provisioning and management, this level of workload portability allows seamless migration and disaster recovery to the Azure cloud.

Our centralized approach to VM management combines provisioning, archiving, backup and recovery with hardware snapshots and cloud management in one solution — letting you protect and manage thousands of Hyper-V VMs while getting a consistent view of all your VM data.

Microsoft Exchange

Simplify email archiving while enabling self-service access to backups of individual emails, calendars and documents. Our Outlook plug-in lets users quickly find and recall messages from the Commvault archive natively in the latest version of Exchange — no matter how old or which version of Exchange the message originally came from. Plus, powerful search and eDiscovery allows for faster and more cost-effective response to litigation and compliance demands.
