On the heels of its most recent expansion into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Commvault unveiled Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solutions known as Metallic, which is now globally available across 30 countries, including in Asia, with portfolio availability in India, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore. Metallic is also now generally available in additional geographies through Metallic managed service provider (MSP) partners.
Bringing Metallic innovations to more parts of the world is an ongoing priority for Commvault, as is constant innovation. Metallic recently added to its arsenal with all-new Metallic™ Backup for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Azure Active Directory protection solutions, and enhancements to the Metallic Cloud Storage Service. With the addition of Metallic Backup for Microsoft Dynamics 365, Metallic supports all three Microsoft cloud platforms – Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365, and Azure.
Commenting on the launch, Anshuman Rai, Area Vice President, India and South Asia, Commvault said, “India’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) industry has the potential to be valued at $1 trillion by 2030 and the continued increase of cloud adoption by customers in India especially mid-market and small enterprises, makes it one of the largest markets for us to capture. We are excited to bring Metallic’s SaaS data protection technology to India as it offers every digital enterprise, proven enterprise-grade performance for cloud data protection and backup as a service, ensuring flexibility and scalability in today’s hybrid cloud market.”
Manoj Nair, General Manager, Metallic, commented “As enterprises across APJ adopt cloud services faster than ever, the demand for agile, cloud-delivered data management to mitigate cyberthreats, ensure recoverability, and drive compliance is rising,” “With today’s news, customers and partners around the globe now have access to Metallic’s unmatched portfolio of cloud-native SaaS offerings to protect all major enterprise workloads at massive scale. Not only that, but Metallic also ensures customers won’t be waiting up to 10 days for a restore – with unique flexibility to protect data close to the source – on-prem, in the cloud, or to the Commvault HyperScale X appliance.”
Metallic provides simple, flexible, and integrated data protection for cloud and hybrid cloud workloads as opposed to point products that solve only part of the problem. Metallic’s capabilities, including breadth of coverage for SaaS applications, endpoints, hybrid cloud datacenter workloads, and its unique SaaS Plus storage flexibility eliminate the need for disparate point solutions and siloed data. With simplified management, reduced infrastructure costs, and fast time to value for customers, Metallic provides quick and easy protection for all data with a simple, easy-to-use SaaS model.
