CommVault and Mezeo Partner on Cloud Enablement Solutions to Help Service Providers Accelerate & Monetize Emerging Cloud-Based Service Offering
LAS VEGAS, September 14, 2010 – CommVault and Mezeo Software™ (www.mezeo.com) today announced they have partnered to provide enterprises and service providers with secure, reliable and cost-effective cloud-based data management solutions by seamlessly integrating CommVault’s cloud-optimized Simpana® software with the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform. CommVault’s integrated cloud storage connector for Simpana software simplifies data movement and management for the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform. CommVault and Mezeo will discuss their strategies for streamlining cloud storage deployments at the Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit North America, continuing through September 15th at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas (Booth Nos. 8 and 9, respectively).
Purpose-built for service providers, the rapidly deployable Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform with built-in data management capabilities enables IT service providers to offer branded cloud storage solutions to end users for disaster recovery, business continuity and compliance requirements. With the combined CommVault and Mezeo cloud-enabled storage solution, infrequently accessed archive and backup data can be moved easily to the cloud for reduced reliance on expensive, on-premises disk and tape storage. Simpana software’s singular platform and embedded functionality, including data deduplication and encryption, further reduces costs and extends security while easing data tiering to the cloud.
CommVault Simpana software takes full advantage of native REST connectivity and Mezeo’s Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to accelerate the deployment and monetization of value-added cloud storage services.
As a Mezeo Ready Partner solution, the CommVault solution integrates seamlessly with the Mezeo platform to create complete, customized cloud storage offerings. CommVault has expanded its Service Provider Program by offering a monthly usage based program where service providers avoid incurring heavy capital expenses by only paying for what they use. As a result, CommVault enables service providers to drive new, higher-margin revenue opportunities while minimizing administrative and infrastructure costs by leveraging Simpana software’s singular platform and integrated product functionality to support a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) commercial business model. CommVault’s technical support can meet the specific needs of service providers with the Remote Operations Management Service (ROMS®) offering, which provides integrated alerting, reporting and data verification functionality based on standard Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
“CommVault is committed to working with our technology and service provider partners in helping enterprises embrace a cost-effective cloud computing model," said David West, vice president of marketing and business development for CommVault. "Our Simpana software and modular approach to data management integrates transparently with Mezeo’s service-enabled cloud storage platform to streamline customer deployments and quickly monetize new managed services.”
“Together, CommVault and Mezeo are making it easier for service providers to rapidly deliver robust cloud storage services with fully integrated data management capabilities," said Steve Lesem, president and CEO of Mezeo Software. "As a member of our Mezeo Ready community, CommVault has seamlessly integrated Simpana software with the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform, enabling our customers to further differentiate their cloud-based offerings.”
According to Keith Archibald, product development specialist for Revera, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider based in Wellington, New Zealand, the partnership between CommVault and Mezeo enables Revera to provide its customers with a scalable cloud platform delivering managed services that address emerging backup, archive, disaster recovery and compliance requirements. “With the combined Mezeo cloud storage and CommVault Simpana software solution, we can offer our customers a fast and flexible solution for moving, managing and storing data securely and reliably in the Revera Cloud while opening up new revenue streams from value-added services.”
