Shanghai (Huawei Connect), Shenzhen, China and Tinton Falls, N.J., Aug. 31, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, and Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced plans to create a joint lab in Chengdu, China that will be used to develop data backup, recovery, archive and cloud solutions based on both companies technologies. Commvault Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Ron Miiller, and Huawei Technologies Co, Ltd. President, Storage Product Line, Ruiqi Fan, were both present for the signing at the opening of HUAWEI CONNECT, Huawei’s integrated conference for the global ICT ecosystem. Chengdu is the headquarters of Huawei’s storage business.

Commvault and Huawei will commit personnel, software and hardware to the lab, which features both a testing and development center and an executive briefing center. In addition to ensuring full compatibility between the companies’ latest products, work at the lab will focus on incubating, testing and demonstrating cloud backup, Data Protection-as-a-Service and other innovative solutions that extend the companies’ ability to address their customers’ critical data protection and management needs.

The joint lab further expands Huawei and Commvault’s strong partnership, which was initially established three years ago when Huawei agreed to distribute Commvault’s software with Huawei OceanStor data storage systems. After that initial agreement, Huawei and Commvault collaborated to create an integrated offering with bundled service agreements. More recent, Huawei and Commvault started to collaborate for the Huawei Cloud Data Center Offerings, which include Data Protection-as-a-Service capabilities. Worldwide customer response to the Huawei and Commvault partnership has been very positive. For example, Brennan IT recently announced that it is using Commvault Software and Huawei OceanStor to deliver a scalable and flexible Backup-as-a-Service solution to its customers in Australia.

“Over the last few years Commvault and Huawei joint backup solution has been very successful, and we are very pleased to announce the establishment of the joint lab,” said Huawei Technologies Co, Ltd. President, Storage Product Line, Ruiqi Fan. “This represents a significant milestone on the path toward even closer collaboration. This lab will function as a platform for our continuous joint innovation, incubating Data Protection as a Service and data management solutions.”

Both Commvault and Huawei are leaders in their respective fields: Gartner recently named Commvault a leader for the sixth straight year in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software, and also named Huawei the fastest growing vendor of External Controller Based (ECB) storage in the world in 2015.

“We’ve been very impressed with Huawei’s advanced storage technology, strong customer relationships and global footprint as we have expanded Commvault’s presence in both China and around the world over the past five years,” said Commvault Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Ron Miiller. “This new lab further strengthens the Commvault-Huawei partnership by helping us develop new solutions that maximize the value of our customers’ data management and storage investments.”

More than 15,000 industry leaders will come together in Shanghai to envision a Better Connected World, welcome the smart society and shape the digital transformation of industries.
