Commvault, a recognised global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced enhanced managed service provider (MSP) and aggregator partner advantage programmes, tailored and refined to support the way Commvault’s MSP and aggregator partners operate while fulfilling their unique needs for delivering Intelligent “Commvault Powered” Data Services to customers of all sizes around the world.

With a fundamental shift in the IT landscape, organisations are increasingly looking towards managed service providers for consumption-based solutions that span the entire IT stack and are cost-effective, scalable and easy to consume. Seeing this as a fast-growing and clear market direction, Commvault has further evolved its industry-leading Partner Advantage Program to now offer MSPs and aggregators the critical elements they seek to be successful – multiple ways to partner and earn incentives that drive profitability, deep ecosystem relationships centred on joint selling, and tools like in-region support, expansive training and marketing resources to drive partner growth and win more deals.

“One of Commvault’s main objectives is to always provide our partners with Intelligent Data Services that help organisations protect and manage data and applications in an increasingly hybrid and multicloud world,” said John Tavares, Vice-President, Global Channels and Alliances. “The enhancements to our MSP and aggregator programmes help our partners achieve these goals, meet challenges head-on and future-proof their business. Our solutions are industry-leading and we provide the tools, benefits, experience and support that enable partners to help their customers safely protect and manage their data in any environment – on-premises, cloud or SaaS.”

Centred on Commvault’s four key pillars for a winning partnership, the MSP Partner Advantage Program offers a range of benefits that allow partners to easily build on existing services and create new ones for their customers. The simple, modern programme offers two tiers with clearly identified tier promotional requirements and incentives, rewarding partners for driving consumption. MSP partners are also provided with flexible licensing and consumption options that include both subscription and utility agreements to align with customer demand. With partner success as a key foundation, Commvault offers free training resources and curriculums designed to build competency, helping both MSPs and aggregators operate and grow their “Commvault Powered” practice.

In addition, Commvault will be adding Metallic for MSPs to its Partner Advantage Program later this year, enabling its MSP partners to broaden their service catalogues and grow their business with the agility of SaaS.
