Commvault, a global enterprise leader in intelligent data services across on-premises, cloud and SaaS environments, today announced that leading industry research firm GigaOm has named Commvault a “leader” and “outperformer” in the new GigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection for the third year running.

Commvault was evaluated along with 14 other vendors based on execution, roadmap and ability to innovate. According to GigaOm, Commvault is “doing very well by combining solutions for SaaS applications, on-premises (VM-based) infrastructure, containers and databases efficiently”.

“In general, the market is very dynamic and vendors are striving to build a consistent experience across multiple clouds while providing advanced application and data mobility,” said Joep Piscaer, GigaOm Analyst. “Commvault’s broad support for VMs, containers and (cloud) data services and databases in a single platform make it a great choice for hybrid and complex applications. Its security and ransomware controls are very extensive, making it suitable for larger enterprises.”

Kubernetes and containers have not (yet) replaced all cloud and traditional applications – they have integrated into the application landscape and need to be protected accordingly. Over the last year, Commvault has significantly advanced its protection for Kubernetes workloads by integrating fully automated management, replication, migration and security enhancements across its portfolio of Intelligent Data Services. According to the GigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection, Commvault provides effective protection for “hybrid applications that run across Kubernetes, VMs and cloud services, consolidating backup operations on a single platform”.

“We are thrilled to receive recognition as a leader and outperformer in the GigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection for the third year in a row, and just as proud of the investments and rapid progress we’ve made in expanding our leading data protection technology to support the widest range of workloads in the industry,” said Ranga Rajagopalan, Vice-President of Products, Commvault. “By natively integrating with Kubernetes, Commvault fully protects customers’ modern application environments across full clusters and at the namespace level, giving complete and scalable protection, no matter where the application is running.”
