Commvault joins powerful Business Avengers Coalition to deliver on global goals for sustainable development

Oct 18th, 2019

Commvault, a leading provider of software for the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, announced today at Commvault GO 2019 its participation in the recently formed “Business Avengers” coalition.

In a historic tour de force, the coalition unites 17 global companies together representing over $500 billion in revenue and 900,000 employees, to deliver on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agreed to by every UN nation by 2030.

Leaving the elaborate costumes, long colourful capes and catchy superhero names at the door, each one of the Business Avengers will be committed to addressing one of the 17 goals to help drive awareness and, ultimately, change. For its part, Commvault is proud to take on the mantel of SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.

“Joining forces with other global leaders as part of the Business Avengers Coalition is a perfect way to drive positive changes and help protect the environment,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, Commvault CEO. “As a longtime advocate of combining science and technology to manage the carbon footprint, responsible consumption and production is an initiative that hits very close to home. We are excited to take part in this powerful consortium of leading companies.

The Business Avengers initiative is being coordinated by Project Everyone, a team of communications and campaign specialists that has embarked on a mission to ensure everyone on the planet knows what The Global Goals for Sustainable Development are, so that they stand the greatest chance of being achieved.

“Commvault is showing its leadership and enthusiasm for protecting the environment at a time when the IT industry has surpassed the airline industry in terms of carbon footprint,” said Gail Gallie, Co-Founder of Project Everyone. “Commvault is leading by example to drive awareness on how innovation and technology can improve efficiencies in an environmentally-conscious way to better protect our planet. We look forward to working with Commvault to educate the world on how to use and produce energy in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm we have inflicted on the planet.”

“From powering an epic expedition to the South Pole through sustainable energy sources, to driving employee wide conservation and ‘plastics free’ programmes, Commvault is no stranger to championing greener eco-friendly approaches to protecting the planet,” said Chris Powell, Commvault chief marketing officer. “We are excited to join this dynamic, global effort, which brings together technology innovators, scientists, companies and non-governmental organisations to address ways specific industries can work to achieve the Global Goals set forth by every UN nation a few years ago.”

The full lineup of Business Avengers includes: Arm, Avanti Communications, The Coca-Cola Company, Commvault, Diageo,, Mars Inc, Mastercard, Microsoft Corp., Nike, RB, SAP, Salesforce and Unilever.

New Hedvig capabilities enable Commvault to unify multi-cloud storage and data management

Oct 18th, 2019

Commvault, a leading provider of software for the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced at Commvault GO 2019 new capabilities for its Hedvig software-defined storage solutions.

The enhancements expand Hedvig’s value and use cases and demonstrate how Hedvig, which was recently named a “Hot Startup to Watch” in Startup50’s Big50-2019 Startup Report, will enable Commvault to realise the unification of storage and data management.

“New capabilities converge many of the latest storage, container and cloud technologies, allowing enterprises to automate manual infrastructure management processes and simplify their multi-cloud environments,” said Avinash Lakshman, Chief Storage Strategist, Commvault. “These capabilities enhance Commvault’s value to enterprises today. They also show how the integration of technologies into Commvault’s solutions portfolio will deliver enterprises the industry standard solution in a multi-cloud world.”

The innovative software-defined storage capabilities introduced today will enable enterprises to automate and simplify storage administration, reduce storage costs and accelerate time to value. They include:

  • Container Storage Interface (CSI) support, which enables enterprises to use Commvault for the management of Kubernetes and other container orchestrators (COs).
  • Built-in data centre availability, which helps enterprises improve data resiliency.
  • Support for erasure coding, which improves storage efficiency.
  • Comprehensive support for multi-tenant data centres, including the ability to manage tenant level access, control, and encryption settings, which will allow managed service providers (MSPs) to deliver storage solutions across hybrid cloud environments.
  • Multi-data centre cluster management, alerting and reporting, empowering enterprises and MSPs to configure and administer all their data centres’ software-defined storage infrastructure from a single location.

In addition, Commvault’s recently formed Hedvig leadership team is moving forward on other initiatives to increase supported use cases, while also integrating Hedvig’s technologies into Commvault’s portfolio of data protection solutions.

Plans are underway to use Hedvig’s technologies to enhance to its data management automation and storage provisioning capabilities and expand its support for application containers and microservices.

Together, these and other Hedvig integration initiatives will support Commvault’s strategy to reduce multi-cloud data fragmentation and complexity by unifying storage and data management.
