Gartner Names CommVault a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving
-- Simpana 10 software's innovative approach to information management offers intelligent archive for search, compliance and business intelligence
-- Industry-leading software platform integrates backup and archive functionality with content-aware retention to reduce cost, risk and operational complexity
OCEANPORT, N.J., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) announced today that it has been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner Inc.'s "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving1." According to Gartner, "The term 'enterprise information archiving' (EIA) incorporates products and solutions for archiving user content, (for example, email, files, IM, text messages) and other data types (such as structured data, social media and Web page content). These products provide features such as data deduplication across content types, retention management, content indexing and at least basic tools for e-discovery (which, in this case, includes functionality for legal hold, advanced search, export and other features specific to managing data for eDiscovery within the archive)."
As an integral part of the Simpana® software platform, CommVault's Intelligent Archive capabilities help organizations classify, retain, and access information based on strategic business value. Instead of accumulating and sifting through volumes of useless data, Simpana software intelligently indexes and retains information based on automated compliance-driven retention policies. Simple and intuitive search and access mitigates eDiscovery and compliance challenges, and transforms enterprise data into insight, empowering organizations to make better business decisions.
"We believe this recognition demonstrates the value of a singular software platform that enables our customers to overcome their data and information management challenges and make better decisions," said N. Robert Hammer, Chairman, President and CEO, CommVault. "Simpana 10 builds on CommVault's leadership in enterprise backup and recovery to deliver intelligent archive and search capabilities that change the game for compliance, eDiscovery and Information Governance."
The CommVault Simpana 10 software platform offers converged backup and archive functionality, which allows organizations to mine critical business intelligence, cut costs and reduce operational complexity. Simpana 10 offers a smarter approach to manage and access information across its entire lifecycle, with features that support intelligent archive including:
- Simpana OnePass™, which integrates archive, backup and reporting into a single process to help organizations solve massive file and email growth problems without adding overhead.
- ContentStore, the hardware agnostic, virtual repository for all Simpana-managed information, that collects, organizes, indexes and classifies data based on user-defined policies, delivering unprecedented flexibility, efficiency and scale.
- Reference Copy, CommVault's content-based retention feature, which provides automated, granular policies for tiering, retention and classification and allows businesses to keep only the most relevant business and compliance data.
- Enterprise Search, CommVault's software leverages a single, intelligent index across both backup and archive data to empower users to quickly and easily search, classify, select and retrieve business critical information.
CommVault has also been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner Inc.'s "Magic Quadrant: Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software for three consecutive years.2" In addition to its Information Archiving capabilities, Simpana 10 helps companies slash costs and improve operations through advanced backup and recovery, replication, snapshot management, virtual machine integration, Edge protection and anytime, anywhere information access.
