Commvault has entered into a multi-year agreement with Microsoft that tightly integrates go-to-market, engineering, and sales of Commvault’s Metallic Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) data protection portfolio with Microsoft Azure – delivering ultimate scale and trusted security with simple SaaS management.
Metallic enhances protection of Microsoft Office 365 data in the case of accidental deletion, corruption, and malicious attacks. Metallic also offers a range of additional options from VMware and Microsoft SQL database backup to Endpoint protection.
This new phase of the collaboration builds on Commvault’s longstanding use of Azure capabilities including application and data migration, long-term retention, and Azure Blob Storage for its scale, durability and security.
The new agreement includes plans to build a SaaS offering of Metallic Cloud Storage on Azure Blob Storage and other deep product integrations with native Azure services.
As part of the agreement, Metallic will be a featured app for SaaS data protection in the Azure Marketplace for public cloud and hybrid IT customers. Commvault will also continue to support choice for customers who request alternative clouds based on business requirements. Metallic Backup & Recovery for Office 365 is now available on the Azure Marketplace.
