Protecting Hybrid Clouds of Every Size: Commvault Named Frontrunner & Outperformer … TWICE

July 11, 2022

By David Ngo – CTO, Metallic

As digital transformation initiatives accelerate, the cloud provides opportunities for companies to reshape their processes, tools, and infrastructures. However, managing and protecting hybrid- and multi-cloud environments can be complex. That’s why today’s businesses need forward-looking data protection solutions that remove silos and protect data – no matter where it lives.

In the recent GigaOm Radar Report for Hybrid Cloud Data Protection for both Large Enterprises and Small and Medium-Sized Businesses, Commvault was named a Frontrunner and Outperformer. The reports highlight Commvault’s comprehensive protection for companies of all sizes – with Metallic specifically being identified as ‘best-in-class BaaS’.

To furnish each Radar report, GigaOm evaluates the maturity, innovation, and feature-set of over 15 of the industry’s top vendors. A detailed market sector analysis benchmarks key criteria (such as workload support, delivery model options, resiliency, and more), and every vendor is assessed upon existing functionality, as well as forward-looking roadmap and market position.

Here’s how Commvault, and our Metallic SaaS portfolio, stood out…

Leading Workload Coverage

With extensive coverage of multigenerational and modern workloads, Commvault and Metallic SaaS were specifically called out in this year’s Radar reports for our ability to manage and protect a wide set of ecosystems, applications, and workloads for both enterprises and small businesses. This includes broad-ranging support across multi-cloud environments (like Azure, AWS, and recently added OCI support), mission-critical applications (like SAP and Oracle), Kubernetes, VMs, and beyond. This wide coverage provides customers with elasticity to scale their protection to safeguard current and future investments, in unison.

Customer Choice

In addition to robust end-to-end hybrid cloud coverage, GigaOm noted Commvault’s portfolio offers flexibility of choice that customers need. With both self-managed software and appliances and Metallic SaaS-delivered solutions, customers can safeguard data on their own terms, without sacrifice. Whether consuming data protection on-premises or via the cloud, tight platform integrations empower users to manage and protect hybrid environments, SaaS apps, endpoints, and beyond – conveniently through a single pane of glass. Complemented with flexible cloud and on-prem storage options, customers have complete autonomy when considering how to (and where to) safeguard their hybrid environments.

Innovation & Speed

GigaOm also called out our hyper-focus on innovation, specifically our speed to market and commitment beyond backup. With an expansive and ever-growing footprint, Commvault and Metallic SaaS solutions enable customers to keep up with the pace of change. Stand out security, resiliency, eDiscovery, and newly launched ThreatWise™ cyber deception capabilities deliver integrated insights, ensure compliance, and improve overall security and ransomware posture – while keeping hybrid environments safe and recoverable.

We’re proud of the recognition that’s been given to us in the most recent GigaOm Radar reports. We’re even more proud of helping our customers sleep better at night by providing the unique combination of security, performance, ease of use, and platform coverage they need.
