Judges call Metallic SaaS data protection ‘cloud-based backup done right for a change’

Tinton Falls, N.J. – October 7, 2020 – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced that Metallic™, Commvault’s enterprise-grade SaaS data protection portfolio, has been named a winner in the Best of VMworld 2020 Awards in the Resilience and Recovery category for its Core Backup & Recovery solution. Announced at this year’s VMworld conference, the awards program recognizes the most innovative new products in the server virtualization, cloud and end-user computing markets.

Built as a cloud-native solution leveraging the best of Commvault’s market leading data protection IP, Metallic Core Backup & Recovery delivers proven, enterprise-grade data protection from the cloud for hybrid workloads such as VMware and Hyper-V virtual machine workloads, file servers, and SQL server data, as well as public cloud native workloads such as Azure Blob and Azure File object storage. With it, IT managers can reduce risk of downtime from ransomware or other attack. They can stop spending hours waiting for a backup to complete, nimbly recover lost files, and scale data protection seamlessly to petabytes – all in as little as 15 minutes, thanks to pre-configured backup & recovery plans. With a unique SaaS Plus model for hybrid workloads, customers have the ability to enjoy all the benefits of cloud-delivered data protection, but still keep an active local copy of their data for the fastest recovery, which matters especially for the large multi-petabyte data stores.

Metallic Core Backup & Recovery was selected as the winner for its ability to meet the demands of resiliency and recovery, while also providing security, scalability, and ease to customers. Feedback from the judges, which can be found on include: “Cloud-based backup done right for a change. Metallic took the time to figure out what worked in the cloud and what didn’t. The company ended up creating an app that was actually designed for the cloud — a SaaS-based solution for the modern enterprise.”

“The importance of resilience and recovery solutions has never been more critical than it is in today’s current climate, with rapidly diversified hybrid workloads, rampant ransomware and cyber security risks, and a remote and distributed workforce,” said Manoj Nair, General Manager, Metallic. “With Metallic Core Backup & Recovery we wanted to create a solution that makes it seamless for customers to backup and recover their foundational enterprise data with an easy to use SaaS environment. We are thrilled to be recognized for the success of this solution and are excited to see what’s next as we near year two of Metallic.”

Open to all vendors associated with this year’s virtual conference, the Best of VMworld 2020 Awards was judged by a panel of experts that evaluated nominated products and named winners in seven categories. To learn more about the Best of VMworld Awards, please visit:
