CommVault honours partners at first Worldwide PartnerAdvantage Awards

CommVault recently honoured several valuable partners in a variety of categories at its first annual worldwide PartnerAdvantage Awards program.

The Awards recognise partners that have exceeded sales and business goals, made significant contributions to customers’ success and demonstrated its highest commitment to providing superior sales and support of CommVault Simpana software, the company said.  The winners were announced during CommVault’s worldwide Sales Kick-off Meeting held last week in Orlando.

Ron Miiller, senior VP of worldwide sales, CommVault said, “CommVault partners are essential to our business and represent the most dedicated and knowledgeable solution providers in the industry. The 13 partners honoured have gone above and beyond over the last year to meet the ongoing demands of their customers. We applaud our partners for their commitment to excellence, quality and service in helping our customers embrace change and transformation on the path to modern data management.”

CommVault’s PartnerAdvantage program serves the company’s partner ecosystem, which includes OEMs, resellers, value-added distributors and system integrators, by providing them with the necessary tools to broaden their product knowledge and implementation capabilities as well as incentives to drive additional revenue opportunities, representatives said.

Historically, more than 80% of CommVault’s worldwide software revenue is transacted through channel partners, the company confirmed and therefore, CommVault’s commitment in building mutually-beneficial partner relationships is stronger than ever.

Over the past year, CommVault has bolstered its channel program with the addition of a service provider partner component designed to assist managed service providers in streamlining the deployment and management of cloud-based services.

CommVault has also launched the VIRAL program to give resellers a simple solution for deploying scalable virtual infrastructures along with data protection best practices to safeguard VMware environments. In addition, CommVault has introduced Application Data Management (ADM) bundles for SharePoint, Exchange and VMware.

The company also recently appointed Scott Skidmore as its VP of channel sales for the Americas to further strengthen CommVault’s partner ecosystem.
