datamgmt210CommVault (NASDAQ:CVLT) introduces Simpana 9 to enable companies to deploy modern data management that bridges the physical storage world and the rapidly emerging virtual one.

As enterprises transform their IT landscapes to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs, legacy data management products lack the intelligence, automation and scalability to protect, store and recover vast amounts of data proliferating across physical, virtual and cloud computing environments, states CommVault. Therefore, Simpana software solves these IT challenges with technology advancements, including increased virtualization scalability and performance, integrated source and target data deduplication, automatic and transparent integration with hardware array-based snapshots, as well as new tools that ease migration to CommVault’s next generation Simpana 9 platform.

“With Simpana 9, we’re changing all that by building on the strengths of our singular platform while delivering industry-leading automation, integration and scalability. Now more than ever, Simpana 9’s unified platform, advanced functionality and software migration tools make it incredibly easy, efficient and economical to choose CommVault as the de facto standard in modern data management,” commented N. Robert Hammer, CommVault’s chairman, president and CEO

With Simpana 9, CommVault aims at delivering its forward-looking vision of a better way to manage data, making it easier for customers to buy, deploy and support a data and information management strategy built on the industry’s first modern data management software.

“With its new Simpana release, CommVault is breaking barriers with improved scalability, increased levels of protection, faster recovery, and greater efficiency for managing physical and virtual server environments. With new licensing options and migration enablement, CommVault is also making it more feasible for organizations to replace inefficient point solutions with Simpana 9 and realize the lower overhead and increased efficiency benefits CIOs care about most,” remarked Lauren Whitehouse, senior analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group.
