The Silicon Review
“Highest ability to execute. Furthest in completeness of vision.”
Commvault was formed in 1988 as a development group within Bell Labs, and later designated as a strategic business unit of AT&T Network Systems. In 1996, it was incorporated as an independent company. In the 20 years since, Commvault has experienced tremendous growth, pioneered numerous industry-shaping innovations and established itself as a respected data and information management leader.

Success story of a happy customer: Rackspace Rackspace delivers fanatical support and growth in managed backup with Commvault.
Challenge: Rackspace needed infrastructure and functionality that could continue to manage explosive growth. Backup operations were taking days, rather than hours to complete and its legacy system was attempting to run all backup jobs at the same time, rather than in queue. A modern data protection solution that would accommodate integration with all leading storage platforms was needed.
Solution: With its ability to work on all the leading storage platforms, Commvault software provided the flexibility that Rackspace needed to protect customer data no matter where it resides.
Benefits: Rackspace has benefited with cost savings in the millions of dollars by avoiding the need for more storage capex. Further, staff productivity has soared so that it can support rapid customer growth without the need to hire additional staff. Finally, Commvault’s ability to deliver faster restores has led to customer satisfaction levels that were previously unattainable, without having to face a “rip and replace” scenario.
