Commvault Launches Remote Managed Services to Support Customer Investments in Commvault Integrated Portfolio
Commvault, a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, today launched Commvault Remote Managed Services to give customers the option of supporting and managing Commvault software environments through Commvault's dedicated Remote Managed Services team. As customers adopt new technologies to align and meet the needs of their business with cloud, virtualization, deduplication, search and replication technologies, Commvault Remote Managed Services helps IT leaders focus on core business priorities, maximize their investment in Commvault's technologies, and entrust management and monitoring activities to a dedicated team.  

While most customers today are easily managing their Commvault environments with in-house resources, there are companies that want the option to engage directly with Commvault or a certified partner for remote management. By giving customers the ability to focus on their strategic priorities without overwhelming IT staff with demands for data management, Commvault's Remote Managed Services increases confidence through continuous solution optimization, installation and configuration of Commvault software and troubleshooting and resolving backup, restore, replication, archiving and more.

"It was clear from conversations with customers that additional support options are important to their growth and business. Now, our customers have the flexibility they need, whether that's support from an internal team, a certified partner or through Commvault directly," said David Ngo, director of Managed Services at Commvault. "Commvault Remote Managed Services provide the IT support necessary to drive a results-oriented, SLA-based utility model that aligns with an organization's business focus, without having to find and train internal personnel on new tools and technologies available in the marketplace."

The Commvault Remote Managed Services offering includes the skilled personnel, monitoring facilities, optimized processes, reporting and best practices necessary to manage customer data. All features of Commvault software are supported, including backup, archiving, virtual infrastructure management, disaster recovery, analytics, eDiscovery, IntelliSnap, content indexing and search and endpoint backup. The Managed Services team also supports all types of infrastructure and storage supported by Commvault software, and is vendor-neutral to virtual machines, hypervisors and cloud storage.

In addition to offering the service directly for customers, Commvault has an offering available to resellers that have attained the Remote Managed Services specialization within the Commvault Service Advantage Program.  Commvault Remote Managed Services provides partners a turnkey approach with incremental business opportunities and the ability to combine additional, value-add services (hardware managed services, hardware resale, financing/leasing, etc.) as a complete packaged offering for their customers.

"While Commvault's platform and software portfolio is highly regarded within the industry for its simplicity and ease of use, some organizations prefer to have their data management environments run by dedicated third parties to free up their IT staffs and resources for company tasks - the new offering from Commvault now provides this option for us and our customers," said Tim Nedom, Senior Solutions Consultant, Integrated Archive Systems.  "With Remote Managed Services now added to our portfolio of existing value added services, we now have a great opportunity to meet the unique needs of these customers with secure, reliable remote monitoring and management of their Commvault Software environment, while alleviating IT management burdens so they can focus on their core business. As a result, Commvault is enabling us to accelerate the core business success of our customers by activating their data and turning it into a strategic advantage."

Commvault Remote Managed Services is available for U.S. customers immediately. For more information, please visit
