Gartner names CommVault Magic Quadrant leader for second year running

25 Nov 2014

Gartner has positioned CommVault in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving” for the second consecutive year.

According to Gartner, “the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving profiles vendors that offer, at a minimum, integrated email and some other content archiving utilised predominantly for information governance and eDiscovery, with storage capacity management as a secondary benefit. Leaders have the highest combined measures of ability to execute and completeness of vision. They have a proven track record of financial performance and established market presence.”

“It gives us great pride that CommVault has been recognised as a Leader by Gartner for two years running and we feel it reinforces our commitment to helping customers transform their business data into business value,” says N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, CommVault.

“We believe this is continued validation that our comprehensive, singular approach to data and information management is helping customers solve their biggest challenges. CommVault software goes beyond backup to reduce risk and costs to help companies seek new ways to derive value from their information.”

Gartner states that “by 2019, 75 percent of organisations will treat archived data as an active and ‘nearline’ data source, and not simply as a separate repository to be viewed or searched periodically, up from less than 10 percent today.”

The firm notes that Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) is emerging as a commonly used technology underpinning for higher-level use cases supporting compliance, information governance, eDiscovery and historical preservation of data.

“Originating as a technology solution targeted specifically at email applications, the EIA market has expanded to include broad support for multiple content types,” Gartner says.

CommVault’s technology provides users with instant information access across all data – from endpoint devices to the data center and in the cloud.

CommVault software provides organisations and their employees with self-service access, compliance search and analytics tools for improved productivity. CommVault says its solutions enables its customers to “slash costs by as much as half, reduce administrative overhead by up to 80 percent, and lower aggregate support costs by up to 35 percent”.

As part of its EIA solution, CommVault recently announced the Simpana for Email Archive Solution Set, which CommVault says increases productivity, reduces compliance risk, and improves insights by integrating self-service access, simplified eDiscovery and legal hold, and cost-effective long-term retention.

Simpana for Email Archive features built-in email analytics to improve storage planning and decision-making for archiving policies and can be deployed on premise, or in private or hybrid cloud environments, with support for Microsoft Office 365 and Exchange.

The software is licensed per mailbox and includes flexible archive, search and compliance options. The Solution Set can be used as an entry point into the Simpana platform.
