Metallic’s portfolio of cloud solutions bring secure, scalable, compliant and cost-effective enterprise-ready data management to customers across the region
Commvault’s Metallic Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solutions are now available in the UAE and wider Middle East region.
The solutions include Metallic’s enterprise-grade offerings including Metallic Office 365 Backup & Recovery, Metallic Endpoint Backup & Recovery and Metallic Core Backup & Recovery.
With this expanded availability, customers are now better able to seamlessly address growing business concerns around cost, scalability, and security as they protect critical data.
Metallic Backup & Recovery has been engineered to offer data protection in support of customers’ Data Sovereignty and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance efforts.
To be GDPR compliant, companies must meet strict standards for accountability, security, confidentiality, and resilience. Metallic offerings deliver the capability to monitor compliance policies and the amount and types of data stored, providing users with the expertise and capabilities to fulfill stringent GDPR compliance obligations. Through a tight engineering collaboration with Microsoft, Metallic is able to integrate Microsoft Azure’s secure and compliant platform offerings and tools that help to address GDPR compliance at a foundational level.
Wael Mustafa, Area Vice President, Middle East, South Africa and Turkey (MESAT), Commvault said, “Businesses are making the move to the cloud, and while this provides them with agility and flexibility, it is critical that data and information is protected in line with regulations. Commvault’s backup solutions including Metallic, provide unmatched flexibility with a breadth of enterprise workload support and rapid pace of innovation.”
Designed for the modern enterprise as a truly cloud-native solution, Metallic uses Azure and Commvault’s Data Protection platform to deliver comprehensive BaaS solutions with single pane of glass management across SaaS, on-prem, public cloud native, and hybrid workloads.
“The Metallic cloud storage service combines the best of Commvault`s data management and Microsoft Azure`s infrastructure and platform services: providing global reach with worldwide coverage and local presence within the UAE regions,” said Necip Ozyucel, Azure Business Group Lead
He added, “I am excited to see this solution become available in our Azure UAE region, allowing our customers to store and protect their business-critical data without compromising data residency requirements. I look forward to our continued partnership with Commvault that will allow us to empower more organisations in the region and beyond on their digitisation journey.”
