OCEANPORT, N.J. -- CommVault (NASDAQ:CVLT) today announced that Rackspace, a specialist in the IT hosting market delivering enterprise-level managed services to businesses of all sizes and kinds around the world, has reported increased efficiency and reliability of its IT operations and added to the number of data management services available to its customer base by using CommVault Simpana® software. Committed to providing high levels of data availability to its customers, Rackspace selected CommVault software based on its single management and reporting interface, full-featured capabilities, scalable architecture, and ability to support and centrally manage the heterogeneous data and applications of Rackspace’s distributed customer base.

Rackspace hosts the IT infrastructure for more than 16,000 customers, ranging from large enterprises to SMBs. Because its customers depend on 24/7 data protection, Rackspace turned to CommVault Galaxy® Data Protection software to help protect against application downtime and data loss, as well as provide the scalability to support several thousand backup clients without adding layers of operational complexity.

“When making the decision to switch to CommVault, we estimated we would see a 50 percent time savings in configuring complex customer applications for backup with CommVault as compared to other backup software we were using,” said Shannon Ward, Senior Product Engineer, Rackspace. “Because of CommVault’s singular approach to data management, we’ve been able to significantly reduce the level of complexity in our data centers, while also increasing the accessibility of mission critical applications, such as our customer’s Oracle databases. Overall, CommVault software has reduced the number of hours required to manage our environment, improved reliability and service levels to our customers and reduced the cost of protecting our customer’s IT infrastructures.”
