Commvault formally launches its as-a-Service portfolio, which has been on the market in some geos for several months. Three services are available now, with more to come.
Commvault is making several extremely significant strategic partnership announcements at their GO event. The one with HPE extends an existing relationship, so in terms of new business, may not be as significant in terms of new revenues, but it is still important as clear statement of their go-to-market strategy.
Cohesity has doubled the amount of dollars allocated to their partner program, with new perks like rebates for sales to very large customers and formalized and expanded MDF. They have also established a model for service providers within the program, which provides mechanisms like consumption-based pricing suited to this business model.
While the Spectra Logic TAOS system to improve LTO recall times is the high-profile news here, they also announced zoning to improve robot retrieval performance, a new tool to make it easier to load takes in bulk into libraries, a higher-end maintenance plan for customers who want to train their own people to do repairs, and a new lifetime media data integrity guarantee.
