PR Newswire

TINTON FALLS, N.J., Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has presented the company with a 2020 CRN Tech Innovator Award. Commvault was recognized for its new Commvault HyperScale X solution, which claimed top honors in the Data Management category, as well as its Metallic Backup & Recovery solution, which was named a finalist in the Cloud Data Protection/Disaster Recovery category.

This annual award program honors innovative vendors in the IT channel across 49 technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to security to storage to networking. CRN editors assessed hundreds of vendor products along multiple criteria, including uniqueness, key capabilities, technological competency, and addressing customer needs.

HyperScale X, the latest generation of Commvault’s integrated scale-out data management solutions, utilizes software-defined storage technology from Hedvig, which Commvault acquired in 2019. HyperScale X features major functionality improvements over previous versions of HyperScale, delivering companies an intuitive and easy to deploy scale-out appliance with unmatched scalability, security, and resiliency.

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards celebrate technology vendors that empower end users and promote business growth for solution providers with pioneering, purpose-built solutions,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Congratulations to each of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award winners! We are honored to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are powering IT transformation and innovation.”

“We are thrilled for HyperScale X to be named a leading data management solution by CRN,” said Mercer Rowe, Vice President, Global Partner Organization, Commvault. “With this solution, our partners gain a powerful tool to support customers’ needs to accelerate their digital transformation journey. Hyperscale X is an intuitive, easy to deploy appliance that offers customers unmatched scalability, security and resiliency as they move to hybrid cloud, container, and virtualized environments. Delivering a modern architecture, including software-defined storage technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning, HyperScale X allows customers to get up and running quickly and grow as their needs demand, all while keeping their data secure and available.”

“Commvault HyperScale X is the scale-out data protection appliance our customers need, especially as their data resides in a lot of places and requires protection, which can be hard in rapidly growing organizations with evolving IT demands,” said Murray Granger, EVP of Sales at Veristor Systems Inc. “HyperScale X easily solves that problem, offering optimized scalability to grow on-premises and in the cloud, along with trusted security and resiliency, including built-in ransomware protection. Ransomware is and continues to be a huge threat to all companies, and the fact that it’s top of mind for Commvault’s portfolio is a key part of why our customers love Commvault. HyperScale X is a compelling offering in a crowded market, and we’re excited to be a Commvault partner.”
