Over the past five years, the storage software industry has faced consolidation. Large incumbents have acquired innovative technology from start-ups and emerging companies. However, a common result has been a series of legacy product lines and offerings with typically loose integration with the newer technologies. Compounding this problem, adjacent storage software markets such as data protection and recovery, storage replication, and archiving continue to consolidate and merge, offering another set of point products from suppliers. Legacy solutions and new technology approaches to protect, recover, find, and retrieve information are frequently based on different architectures. Point products with dissimilar architectures and only loose integration increase management, deployment, and cost overhead for a firm. CommVault Systems (CVLT) is a data and information management software provider challenging traditional incumbents. In addition:
- Rather than requiring a firm to purchase and deploy a series of point products and acquired technologies, CommVault offers customers a single architectural framework upon which they can deploy one or many different data management applications. These applications share a set of underlying service components for tasks such as policy, data movement, and cataloging. The benefits of this architecture include lower TCO, improved management, and greater deployment flexibility.
- This unified architecture is a point of differentiation for the company and has contributed to CommVault's market share increases and fueled growth, which has outpaced the overall market. CommVault's breadth of application offerings, its common architecture, and its expanded routes to market through strategic partnerships increasingly make the company a threat to larger data management suppliers.
