Published: Wednesday, 16 October 2019 08:47

Commvault has announced the launch of Metallic™, a new Commvault venture. Metallic offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) portfolio that enables companies to affordably protect their on-premises, cloud-based and hybrid file and application data. Metallic is a fast, flexible, powerful SaaS solution aimed at the most popular application workloads with enterprise scalability that can be up and running in 15 minutes.

Available through Commvault partners, Metallic comes in three distinct offerings:

Customers can purchase each offering on an annual or monthly subscription basis. It is available in the US at launch and will be rolled out globally. The design of the core backup and recovery offering allows customers to choose whether they want to back up their data leveraging Metallic's cloud storage, or to a mix of their own existing on-premises or cloud storage.

For partners, Metallic is designed to drive business without complex sales cycles and attaches easily to what they sell today, including cloud storage and SaaS application licenses.

A 45-day free trial of Metallic can be accessed at metallic.io, and subscription-based plans are available through select launch partners.
