1. Summary

Commvault is one of the leaders in traditional data protection solutions, and it has been expanding its product line with new solutions for data management and software-defined storage for quite some time now. The company is also modernizing its approach to the market with simpler licensing while integrating different products to propose end-to-end solutions able to cover efficiently pressing data management and data governance needs for organizations of all sizes.

Market positioning: Commvault data protection products are designed for large enterprise needs. Still, with the new Software as a Service (SaaS) offer (Metallic), the company is now able to propose an interesting solution to smaller organizations too. New solutions like Hedvig and Activate are expanding the reach of the company to new markets and allow them to address new use cases. Multi-tenancy capabilities, extended feature sets, and dedicated licensing models can be of help for MSPs to build back up and Disaster Recovery (DR) as a service solution on top of Commvault products.

Deployment model: Most Commvault solutions are usually deployed on-premises. They can also be hosted in the cloud, following specific best practices for cloud-friendly deployments. On the other hand, Metallic is a cloud-native SaaS application tailored for Service Management Enterprises (SMEs) with a better focus on modern infrastructures and OSes, cloud, and SaaS.
