CommVault Signs in Mid East

LONDON -- CommVault(r) (NASDAQ: CVLT), a leading provider of Unified Data Management(r) solutions, today announced a distribution agreement with the Middle East division of Getronics.

A global provider of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions and services, Getronics is CommVault's first channel distribution partner specifically focused on the Middle East and North Africa regions. An established presence since the early 90s, Dubai-based Getronics Middle East will market, sell and support CommVault's full suite of data management solutions throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

"We believe that an important way to penetrate the data protection market is by working with distributors in the local market areas," said Steven Rose, CommVault's vice president of EMEA. "Through an extensive network of qualified service partners, Getronics has established a solid reputation in the Middle East and North Africa and has a full-service organization to provide immediate local support. By tapping into these strengths, CommVault can accelerate the sales process in reaching key customers. We are delighted to partner with Getronics to introduce the features and benefits of our unified data management approach and suite of backup, archiving, replication and storage resource management solutions to partners and end users in the region."

The agreement furthers CommVault's commitment to investing in its channel programme. According to Said Khoubbach, software sales director for Getronics Middle East, "Getronics is very motivated to deliver both technical and consultancy expertise to support CommVault's existing customers and channel partners. As the trend toward vendor consolidation continues, prospects are increasingly looking to work with data management specialists that possess an undiluted focus on this space. We believe that CommVault is well-positioned to meet this demand. The combination of Getronic's expertise and resources including support and training services will enable Value Added Resellers (VARs) in the region to offer CommVault's comprehensive data management solutions to their customers more easily."
