"CommVault recognized the trend toward cloud computing very early on and has made significant investments in cloud computing over the past seven years.

Simpana Software Solution Sets for any Infrastructure
The new Simpana solution sets can be individually deployed or combined as part of a comprehensive data protection and information management solution. The following new and cloud-enhanced Simpana Solution Sets are available worldwide today:
Simpana for VM Backup, Recovery and Cloud Management enables virtual machine administrators and end users to build, protect and optimize virtualized and cloud infrastructure.
-- In contrast to point solutions that only back up VMs, Simpana software enables application owners and tenants to manage their own VM provisioning, management, backup, recovery, retirement and archiving operations through a single interface across platforms. These include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Hyper-V and VMware and Citrix XenServer.
-- Pricing is available with new licensing options of per socket or per 10-VM pack. Unlike competitive offerings, the Simpana VM solution set includes metrics reporting, global deduplication, and deduplication-aware replication, instant VM recovery, and 1 year of maintenance.
Simpana IntelliSnap® Recovery unifies and streamlines application-aware hardware snapshot, replication and recovery to make data assets fully available as size and complexity grow.
-- Customers can automatically manage hardware-based snapshots for the largest physical and virtualized application infrastructures.
-- New Simpana software integration for arrays and applications, including NetApp, HDS and Oracle.
-- Pricing for data protection snapshot, replication and remote services options are based on usable capacity or array-attached bundles.
Simpana for Endpoint Data Protection helps protect and enable the mobile workforce by efficiently backing-up devices and providing secure access and self-service search capabilities.
-- New features for secure file and folder sharing, data loss prevention and device upload support secure data protection and collaboration.
-- Reduce risk and costs with integrated eDiscovery and legal hold across all managed data.
-- Endpoint backup, file sharing and search solutions are licensed per user.
Simpana for Email Archive increases productivity, reduces compliance risk, and improves insights by integrating self-service access, simplified eDiscovery and legal hold, and cost-effective long-term retention.
-- Built-in analytics improve storage planning and decision-making for email archiving policies.
-- The new solution set can be deployed in on-premises, private or hybrid cloud environments, with support for Microsoft Office 365, Outlook, and Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes.
-- Email Archive is licensed per mailbox and includes flexible archive, search and compliance options.
In addition to new licensing options, traditional capacity licensing is also available. More information on new features, functionality and pricing can found in the Simpana Solution Set Fact Sheet.
-- Ryan Sinnwell, Infrastructure Manager, The Weitz Company:"Our business depends on being able to mobilize new project sites remotely within 7-14 days, while being able to overcome the challenge of controlling costs related to transient IT operations at these locations. CommVault enabled us to keep project costs low by consolidating equipment through a comprehensive approach to VM protection and enabled us to maximize the value of existing IT resources through flexibility in choosing our hardware."
-- Dave Simpson, Senior Analyst, Storage for The451 Group: "Today's data management complexities, particularly the adoption of cloud technologies, are prompting more enterprises to look for ways to quickly and easily modernize their environments. CommVault's new, modular approach allows customers to address specific pain points, with the flexibility to upgrade to the full Simpana software suite. Specifically, the new snapshot recovery offering will be of interest to organizations looking to get the most value from their existing storage arrays and meet increasingly stringent SLAs, as the adoption of snapshot and replication technology accelerates to replace traditional data protection methodologies."
-- Jason Buffington, Senior Data Protection Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group"CommVault has been a leader among heterogeneous data protection solutions for years, having continually evolved its platform across backup, archive, replication and snapshotting scenarios for a myriad of production assets. By offering a modular approach for consuming the breadth of capabilities in the Simpana solution set, customers can start with their most pressing data protection modernization needs and grow into the rest of the Simpana platform as other aspects of their IT environment need better protection."
