CommVault - Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances five times in a row.
Looking at the competition in the market, big names comes up; so how possibly CommVault has maintained this position in the last five years? Let us go over a few points that stands out in the Simpana 10 software suite:
1. Deduplication - this leads to a reduction in data being written to the selected storage for your backups. You can have deduplication on your primary as well as your secondary backup copies (tape, cloud, disk).
2. Bug fixes and hotfixes - Commvault has build their software from scratch; no acquisitions were made to build the suite up. We can therefore say that they have a very talented R&D and global team. Added to that their support centers operates around the clock from corners of the world, and for those with a support contract I must say you will be blown away by the number of things these support guys can actually teach you.
3. Partnership and integration: So how come CommVault push to the forefront its support for multiple platforms and vendors(storage etc)? I have been to a few CommVault events, webinars and have noticed how the list of partners have been growing; Software partners, hardware/storage, Cloud.
4. What else have we noticed about CommVault? Single software platform; right!
With Version 11 release this year, lets see what else Commvault has for us.
