Commvault has recently announced a partnership with SoftwareONE. As a provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, SoftwareONE will become Metallic’s first Managed Service Provider (MSP) global design partner for providing Metallic-based SaaS data protection solutions in the form of ‘BackupSimple powered by Metallic’.
SoftwareONE’s cloud-based managed service, BackupSimple, is dedicated to providing critical data backup and recovery capabilities for organizations of different sizes. Developed on Commvault Metallic solutions and delivered by SoftwareONE, BackupSimple would provide safety and manage data from SaaS applications to endpoints to hybrid cloud workloads.
Talking about Commvault, it is a well-known organization in the data backup and recovery industry. The solutions provided by the organization would completely redefine the meaning of backup for progressive enterprises via solutions that tend to manage, protect and use their most important asset, their data. The headquarters of Commvault is situated in Tinton Falls, New Jersey in the United States. The company employs more than 2,600 “highly-skilled” individuals across markets worldwide and is publicly traded on NASDAQ (CVLT).
SaaS Backup and Recovery
On the other hand, Metallic is a venture by Commvault that was built to bring next-generation SaaS data protection into the market. It provides Commvault’s core technology via the cloud. With the help of its partners, Metallic delivers a growing portfolio of SaaS backup and recovery solutions to help today’s organizations by keeping their data protected. To be clear, Metallic serves as a division of Commvault.
BackupSimple would offer an easy entry point for service providers like SoftwareONE to provide top notch data management capabilities, enabled by the simplified cloud-based SaaS model. SoftwareONE would leverage the simplified management with “minimized infrastructure, fast time value to customers, and rapid customer onboarding”.
Other MSP partners can also smoothly provide Metallic capabilities, with the breadth of coverage for SaaS applications, endpoints, hybrid cloud datacenter workloads, and unique Metallic SaaS Plus flexibility, removing the need for disparate point solutions and siloed data.
“Partnerships like the one between Metallic and SoftwareONE help accelerate customer adoption of SaaS while giving MSPs greater choice in how they purchase and manage DPaaS at scale,” said Kevin Rhone, Senior Partnering Consultant, ESG. “Because MSPs of all sizes can leverage Metallic to onboard customers directly and quickly without adding infrastructure, they can accelerate time to revenue, and realize the impactful cost-efficiencies, reduced management and radical scale Metallic can provide.”
Metallic worked with the SoftwareONE Managed Services team to create a model that enables MSPs to choose the engagement model type that works most appropriately for them – whether it using the integrated power for the new Metallic MSP portal and Metallic operational portal, Metallic Hub, to operate all end-user management requirements or developing a customer interface that provides Metallic solutions via an API.
