CommVault Teams With Riverbed

SAN FRANCISCO and OCEANPORT, N.J. -- Riverbed Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVBD), the performance leader in wide-area data services (WDS), and CommVault (NASDAQ:CVLT) announced today that the two companies have teamed to provide customers with solutions to accelerate enterprise data performance. The combination of CommVault’s SimpanaTM suite of enterprise data and information management software and Riverbed’s wide-area data services (WDS) solutions gives companies of all sizes near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) capabilities to reliably, cost-effectively and securely protect remote office data.

Zycko, which distributes both Riverbed® and CommVault products, is a firm believer in implementing the technology best practices that they preach to their customers. As a Riverbed/CommVault user, Zycko utilizes the joint solution to optimize its own inter-site network activity, enabling a centralized application strategy and delivering continuous data protection.

“We use Riverbed in conjunction with CommVault to deliver our own centralized backup strategy, in which Riverbed and CommVault provide a comprehensive data protection solution,” said David Galton-Fenzi, group sales director at Zycko. “Deploying Riverbed and CommVault significantly accelerates our data backup, decreasing the window from 39 hours down to eight hours for a full backup and as low as four hours for an incremental backup. This enables a far more efficient strategy for us, where we can complete full backups each night, rather than having a single backup take more than one and a half days. Now, using CommVault and Riverbed, our centralized backup strategy is a reality.”
