Commvault broadens data management capabilities for service providers, enterprise users on Microsoft Office 365



Commvault expanded on Wednesday its portfolio with further integrations into Microsoft Office 365 to improve data protection, migration, security, eDiscovery and compliance for its customers.

Enterprise IT organizations can now extend their Commvault investments to protect their Office 365 assets. For Commvault’s growing ecosystem of Service Provider and Systems Integrator (SI) partners, today’s announcement enables them to expand their service portfolio to cover Office 365 migrations and protection, a key challenge that end user customers are investing in to address as a priority.

Commvault provides accelerated migrations by archiving redundant, outdated on-premises data prior to migrating to Office 365; and ability to enable a heterogeneous, storage-agnostic, polycloud eDiscovery and search solution for the enterprise that includes Office 365 content.

It also offers Office 365 data management to assist in meeting General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements; advanced data management practices and reduced storage costs as a result of built-in data deduplication and compression, and reduced operating costs through Commvault’s broad storage integrations and the use of commodity storage including Microsoft Azure Storage.

The data governance designs that support need for regulatory compliance and audit requirements with advanced archiving and retention rules, and enable Microsoft Azure Stack to be a hosting target for Office 365 data management.

Commvault helps customers and its partners maximize their investments in Microsoft 365 and Office 365 environments by delivering comprehensive data protection, enterprise search that includes Office 365 data and faster migrations while providing uninterrupted access to their information assets.

The migration from on-premises and hosted Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint environments to Office 365 requires customers to adopt their on-premises data protection, retention and security strategies to a cloud-delivered solution.

The Commvault Data Platform and Commvault’s Endpoint Protection enables customers to extend their on-premises policies to Microsoft 365, Office 365 and Windows 10. A common data platform reduces the risks and instability associated with point solutions.

As customers are navigating this change – often mandated from the C-Suite, they are increasingly looking to Service Provider partners to help them navigate. The Commvault solution enables its expanding ecosystem of Service Providers to address this need by cost effective and reliable service delivery through a multi-tenant service platform deeply integrated, with Office 365, Microsoft 365 and Azure. It also comes with the ability to meet the breadth of the customer’s data management needs, in addition to Office 365 and Microsoft 365, and therefore become a strategic partner to the customers.

Commvault provides comprehensive, policy-driven data protection and recovery for multiple Microsoft applications, including Exchange Online, Microsoft OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, Microsoft Project Online, Windows 10 and any other data located on-premises or across multiple clouds.

“Commvault extends Microsoft’s platforms to deliver additional value to our joint customers. Our history of deep support for Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft 365 is just the latest example of how Commvault embraces, integrates with, and enhances Microsoft solutions, whether it is data on endpoints clients, on-premises infrastructure or in the Cloud,” said Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist, Microsoft Products and Microsoft Partnerships, Commvault. “Our partner centered approach to delivering this solution is consistent with our strategy as well as in alignment with how customers are adopting this solution”

“Digital transformation is about helping customers reimagine what they do and to help them realize that vision,” said Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft. “Commvault’s latest integration with Office 365 and Microsoft 365 helps enable seamless adoption and is the next logical step in a collaboration that has helped shape enterprise transformations.”

“CURAit is helping guide customers through their journey to the cloud. Microsoft is a clear leader in intelligent cloud services. Coupling the capabilities of Microsoft Office 365 with Commvault’s solutions gives us the ability to securely and rapidly migrate and protect our customer data,” said Martin Phillip Maleshyn, CEO, CURAit. “This helps us unlock an additional opportunity to address our customers needs and thereby becoming a strategic vendor/partner to them.”

These latest enhancements to Commvault’s solutions for Microsoft 365 and Office 365 are available now.
