Metallic SaaS service is running on West Japan region of Microsoft Azure platform

Metallic is a cloud-native solution built leveraging Azure Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and native services. Leveraging Commvault industry-leading technology, alongside the durability and security of Microsoft Azure, backed by more than 3,500 security experts and more than 90 compliance certifications, Metallic delivers peace of mind for customers that their data is protected and recoverable.  With multi-layered security, advanced encryption, and zero-trust access controls built-in, Metallic offers a virtually air-gapped service that prevents unwarranted access, preserves and isolates data copies, and enables users to rapidly restore data to drive business continuity and minimize threats.

Price advantage

Because it’s a SaaS solution, Metallic reduces reliance on on-premises infrastructure and helps customers save on maintenance and administrative costs, as they move from capex to opex expenditure. Backups for Microsoft 365 (Office 365), Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Salesforce offer unlimited storage capacity and an indefinite data retention period at a base rate. Endpoint backups also offer unlimited storage capacity and a one-year data retention included.  For Hybrid Cloud workloads, customers can leverage existing investments, and bring their own cloud or on premises storage, or get up and running quickly with Metallic Cloud Storage Service, with flexible and cost-optimized tiers.

Simple and easy installation and management

By using Metallic  it is no longer necessary to build a new backup system as was done in the past, and backup can be started in a few simple steps. Not only is it easily scalable on demand, but backup management for all workloads can be centrally managed from the same web-based console.

Broad coverage across workloads for hybrid cloud and on-premises

Metallic protects remote, on-premises and cloud environments. It supports key workloads for SaaS applications, endpoints, file servers, DB servers, cloud storage, virtual machines, and Kubernetes.
