Case Study: Federal Government Agency

Introduction

This case study of a federal government is based on a January 2012 survey of Commvault® Simpana® software customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“CommVault is a one stop enterprise solution and a great fit for our organization. With one interface and one product, we can effectively safeguard our file and print data and servers, email databases and servers, SQL, Oracle, SharePoint, Windows, servers and desktops, and most recently, we have added a Mac server.
