CommVault, a leading developer of Singular Information Management solutions that strives for top tier data protection, availability across a universal platform and simplified data management on complex networks, recently introduced a new channel incentive program that well assist VMware resellers in delivering a converged virtual infrastructure that adds value and solutions.

Virtual server technologies are a growing trend with CommVault’s new program, the Viral Infrastructure Reference Architecture Leaders (VIRAL), for channel enabling translating to a combination of Simpana, Dell and VMware software building blocks to utilize integrated backup and recovery to transcend virtual server deployments.

“CommVault’s new VIRAL channel enablement program and Application Data Management bundle for VMware are the latest examples of how we’re helping channel partners and their customers fit the missing piece to the data protection puzzle for both large and mid-market converged virtual infrastructures, said Mark Conley, senior director of North American channels at CommVault. “Together with Dell and VMware, CommVault is helping companies of all sizes on their journey to virtualization and cloud computing.”

The scramble for companies looking for the most in the efficient and flexible frameworks for their information technology framework requirements in an effort to adequately support important business operations has led CommVault to develop a channel program that addresses the need to eliminate risk by putting data protection to the forefront.

“As IT organizations move from deploying dedicated physical servers to virtual machines, demand for providing protection of critical data has increased,” said Travis Vigil, executive director of storage marketing for Dell. “This collaboration among Dell, CommVault and VMware has resulted in a fully integrated and tested solution based on Dell Fluid Data architecture that helps to reduce the risk, cost and complexity of deploying virtual environments. With this solution, customers can rapidly reduce the time to benefit from their virtual infrastructures.”

Randy Weis, dreictor of solutions architecture for GreenPages Technology Solutions said the ability to maximize benefits and improve the agility and flexibility of hybrid clouds has made joining CommVault’s VIRAL program a no brainer.

According to eChannel Line, CommVault also recently added a new application data management bundle that uses a single solution to target small business and mid-market customers for VMware.
