• De-duplication reduces data under protection by 83 percent
  • Improvements in available retention from 5 to 28 days
  • Restores are now serviced immediately, eliminating lengthy tape recalls

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – March 23, 2016 — / — Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in data protection and information management, today announced that New Zealand technology consultancy, ViFX has selected Commvault as its single data management solution to protect and manage the company’s strategic information assets. ViFX has recently enjoyed solid growth in its customer base, resulting in a need to rein in costs and complexity in the storage and management of its information, including better optimisation of IT resources to manage the primarily virtualised environment.

With Commvault’s de-duplication capabilities, ViFX has been able to reduce data under protection by 83 percent, translating to substantial savings in storage-related costs, network efficiencies and significantly reducing their reliance on tape. The decrease in data under management has also enabled ViFX to increase the number of backups stored locally on disk, improving their available retention from 5 to 28 days. This has injected greater reliability in ensuring restores can now be serviced immediately, while eliminating the previously lengthy tape recall process.

“As the single solution that underpins our data management, Commvault has enabled us to simplify our business, reduce operational burden and instill greater confidence that our strategic information is protected and available,” said Derek Leitch, Director and Co-Founder of ViFX. “Commvault is the recognised leader in data protection and disaster recovery and as a partner and customer of Commvault, we are proud to be able to practice what we preach. By living and breathing Commvault internally at our organisation, we are well positioned to show our customers how we can help them simplify their systems, reduce storage costs and drive resource efficiencies with Commvault.”

Commvault has also helped ViFX reduce the daily write outs to tape, which are now only 5% of the previous writes. This has been achieved through Commvault’s incremental snapshot replication, which reduces wear and tear of the tape assets, and ensures backups can be transported offsite on the same day, injecting resilience and reliability for ViFX.
