By Metallic Press Release
October 14, 2019

Tinton Falls, NJ and Denver, CO – October 14, 2019 – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a leading provider of software for the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today launched Metallic™, a new Commvault® venture. Metallic delivers a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) portfolio that enables companies to affordably protect their on-premises, cloud-based, and hybrid file and application data. Launching at Commvault GO 2019, Metallic is a fast, flexible, powerful SaaS solution aimed at the most popular application workloads with enterprise scalability that can be up and running in 15 minutes.

Available through Commvault partners, Metallic comes in three distinct offerings:

  • Metallic™ Core Backup & Recovery
  • Metallic™ Office 365 Backup & Recovery
  • Metallic™ Endpoint Backup & Recovery

Customers can purchase each offering on an annual or monthly subscription basis. It is available in the US at launch and globally over time. The design of the core backup & recovery offering allows customers to choose whether they want to back up their data leveraging Metallic’s cloud storage, or to a mix of their own existing on-premises or cloud storage.

Metallic provides data protection and recovery on a cloud-native, flexible SaaS architecture. Whether protecting 1TB or multiple petabytes of data, Metallic customers have the power to grow. The offering’s pre-configured backup and recovery plans combine 20 years of best practices with fast onboarding, along with flexibility for custom configurations.

“There is an unmistakable need for data protection solutions that will scale seamlessly, eliminating the need for disruptive forklift upgrades or changes in infrastructure platforms,” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “Metallic data protection extends to both on-premises and cloud workloads. For many organizations, this will equate to simpler data protection operations with less downtime and seamless scaling.”

Metallic offerings also mitigate the risk of data loss, security threats and other issues like losing access to data in Microsoft O365 or poor backup performance.

“Many of our mutual customers are migrating their applications and data to the cloud. One of the really interesting use cases for Metallic is providing additional protection for individual user information within Microsoft Office 365,” said Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President, AI & ISV Engagement, Microsoft. “It’s exciting to see this new SaaS service coming along on top of Microsoft Azure that brings together the best of what both companies have to offer.”

“It’s simple. If you lose important data you can lose your job. We designed and built Metallic with that in mind. When data loss hits, Metallic gets it back fast and without any surprises,” said Robert Kaloustian, SVP and General Manager of Metallic, A Commvault Venture. “Metallic is fast, secure, reliable and targeted at the most commonly used workloads in the midmarket, with enterprise-grade scalability. Combine these attributes with the ease and flexibility of a SaaS delivery model and we have a game-changing solution.”

For partners, Metallic is designed to drive business without complex sales cycles and attaches easily to what they sell today, including cloud storage and SaaS application licenses. A 45-day free trial of Metallic can be accessed on, and subscription-based plans are available through select launch partners.
