NaviSite adds CommVault Simpana software to offer data protection capability

CommVault has signed an agreement with NaviSite, a provider of enterprise-class hosting and managed cloud services, to extend the data protection capabilities of Simpana software to NaviSite’s NaviCloud portfolio.

Under this agreement, CommVault will provide data protection and management capabilities for customers using NaviCloud Director, an enterprise-class cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution offered directly to customers.


The service will be delivered as part of NaviSite’s broad portfolio of managed services.

CommVault’s Simpana software provides a great degree of flexibility, while resulting in less complexity and costs for their internal organizations, said David Grimes, chief technology officer, NaviSite.

Simpana software is an open cloud data management platform offering broad integration with multiple applications, operating systems, hypervisors, and storage systems. Currently, more than 200 service providers deliver cloud and managed solutions powered by CommVault.

Paul McClure, chief technologist, cloud solutions group, CommVault, stated, “With CommVault, service provider partners can support a comprehensive catalogue of cloud data services – across backup, archive, disaster recovery, and search – all with a single software platform.”
