CommVault Recognized for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) OCEANPORT, NJ December 14, 2011
- CommVault has been positioned in the Challengers quadrant in Gartner's report, "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving."1
- According to Gartner, enterprise information archiving "is the next step in the evolution of archiving that incorporates new products and solutions for archiving user files (email and files on file shares) and, optionally, other content types such as instant messages, structured data and social media content. These products provide features such as data deduplication across content types, retention management, content indexing and at least basic tools for eDiscovery, such as search and legal hold."
- Archiving is becoming an increasingly critical component of a data management strategy driven by cost containment, eDiscovery and compliance. CommVault® Simpana® software delivers a revolutionary approach that converges backup and archive into a single, scalable product which ensures that however data is copied or moved, managed and stored, it is unified to deliver a true lifecycle approach to the protection, retention and access of data.
- For the first time, organizations can protect, archive and search enterprise information through one software platform. As a result, IT departments can achieve up to 50 percent cost savings and improved operational efficiencies.
- Simpana software's intelligent index, classification and retention capabilities further enable access, discovery and recovery of data across all captured production data from hardware snapshots to application archives. Redundant data across both protection and archive copies is eliminated and the policy driven retention and search of indexed data is streamlined across disk, tape or cloud storage.
- More than 2,500 leading organizations around the world have deployed Simpana software for archiving to address both storage optimization and the retention and disposition of information to support regulatory, legal and corporate policy.

- Simpana software, which includes both archive and search capabilities, provides a cost-effective and efficient approach to managing space by moving stale data off expensive primary storage to lower cost tiers of storage.
- With built-in compression, deduplication and aging managed from a single interface, Simpana software allows users to easily define which data is archived and how, as well as the length of time data should be retained, regardless of infrastructure. This single point of management reduces overall complexity and lowers cost.
- Integrated analytics and reporting of file and application data growth trends provide a way to drive the policy management of unstructured archive deduplication. This capability spans all tiers of storageboth disk and tape to cloudto seamlessly deliver efficient, long-term archive retention management.
- For organizations that need to meet compliance requirements, built-in content indexing across the Simpana intelligent archive framework ensures enterprise search and eDiscovery of data regardless of source or stage in a data lifecycle helping to form the foundation of a sound information governance strategy.
- With CommVault's flexible capacity licensing model, Simpana software provides an affordable entry point and seamless growth path when compared to standalone backup/recovery and archive solutions. Organizations can change scope, scale and protection methods at will and for little additional cost or management overhead.
