Software company extends relationship to power managed backup services
CommVault today announced that it has extended its relationship with open cloud company, Rackspace Hosting.
The Rackspace managed backup service which is powered by Simpana software, is said to help customers reduce risk and enable them to back up data for rapid recovery in the event of an outage or data loss.
Alan G. Bunte, executive vice president and chief operating officer at CommVault said: "We work closely with our partners to quickly and effectively deliver new data and information management services that provide long term strategic value both to ourselves and our service provider partners. Our relationship with Rackspace is a perfect example of how CommVault collaborates with a broad ecosystem of global providers to help more customers rapidly adopt modern data information management for improved costs and agility."
The newest features found in Simpana software include workflow automation and global reporting, which were developed as a result of the collaboration with CommVault and are now part of Simpana 10.
"CommVault has made some important changes in Simpana 10 that will help us scale with our customers and their business needs as they grow," said Tim Symchych, senior director of supply chain operations at Rackspace. "We back up approximately 66 petabytes of customer data per month using Simpana software and CommVault has become a trusted advisor."
