by CXOtoday Staff    Nov 11, 2010

challengerCommVault (NASDAQ:CVLT) has been positioned in the ‘Challengers’ quadrant in Gartner’s (NYSE:IT) magic quadrant for enterprise information archiving (EIA). Growth in CommVault’s information and access management business, including Simpana Archive revenue, has come primarily from the increased awareness and use of functionality contained in the unified Simpana data and information management software, informed the company.

“We believe the fact that CommVault is positioned as a challenger to long-standing industry leaders in the archive arena is a testament to the strength of our engineering expertise and proven ability to control storage costs, improve information governance and boost business agility,” commented Simon Taylor, senior director, information management, CommVault.

Gartner’s view regarding vendor placement is influenced by the more than 1,500 conversations on the topic of EIA during the past 18 months with its clients. Intended solely as a research tool, the magic quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace for a specific time period. It depicts Gartner’s analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner.

Simpana software, as stated by CommVault, delivers management and infrastructure efficiencies while providing a growing customer base with a set of capabilities and features that meet the demands of their legal and compliance archiving needs.
