Empowers NetApp Customers With the added option to expand to Commvault’s full range of data protection solutions while receiving Commvault’s world class support
Commvault, a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, today announced Commvault IntelliSnap® for NetApp, a new array-based snapshot management solution that accelerates and simplifies data protection and recovery for NetApp customers. The Commvault IntelliSnap for NetApp offering replaces NetApp SnapProtect®, enables customers to expand to the full range of Commvault’s data protection solutions and shifts support responsibility for the deployed solution to Commvault’s world-class customer support organization.
Available for customers immediately, Commvault IntelliSnap for NetApp simplifies snapshot management of NetApp storage arrays across all business-critical applications, enabling full application recovery while eliminating the need for complex scripts and manual processes. By combining high-speed snapshot copies and disk-to-disk replication with traditional tape backup processes in a single solution, NetApp customers can accelerate data protection and customize strategies based on cost, compliance, and recovery objectives.
As part of the expanded Commvault NetApp relationship, NetApp and its reseller partners can sell the Commvault IntelliSnap for NetApp solution together with NetApp storage to customers in a single transaction and provide a clear path to add Commvault software modules for existing and new NetApp customer environments.
“In order to meet today’s SLAs, organizations of all sizes should be combining the rapid agility and restorative capabilities of snapshots and backups, respectively,” said Jason Buffington, Data Protection Analyst at ESG. “The longstanding partnership between Commvault and NetApp, including this evolution and expansion, is a great example of two market leaders coming together for the best interest of their joint customers. Having customer support for IntelliSnap for NetApp come from Commvault’s world-class support organization is a natural fit that benefits everyone, while opening up new opportunities for both companies.”
“Commvault IntelliSnap for NetApp, coupled with the innovations built into clustered Data ONTAP, delivers exceptional performance and availability for our customers as they transition to the hybrid cloud,” said Tim Russell, Vice President, Product Management, Data Fabric Group, NetApp. “Our partner ecosystem and collaboration with companies like Commvault provide the integrated solutions and services that enable our customers to protect their data across their on-premise and cloud infrastructures, delivering optimum performance and cost.”
“For customers, Commvault IntelliSnap for NetApp delivers leading snapshot management uniquely suited for their NetApp environment, single accountability for support, and access to Commvault’s full integrated solution portfolio,” said Ralph Nimergood, Vice President, Worldwide Channels & Alliances, Commvault. “We believe our expanded partnership with NetApp builds on our momentum and is indicative of our commitment to empower customers with innovative technology and award-winning support. We have a long history of working with NetApp and expect this new partnership alignment to expand revenue opportunities for both companies while increasing quality assurance for our customers.”
Today’s announcement with NetApp follows Commvault’s recent unveiling of its next-generation integrated solution portfolio, including software products and the Commvault Data Platform and services, which help customers address the increasing challenges of managing data and information in highly changing, fast-paced global business environments. The growing relationship between Commvault and NetApp also builds on the success of the Commvault Backup Appliance with NetApp, which integrates Commvault Software with NetApp E-Series storage to deliver a purpose-built, pre-configured data protection solution.
