CommVault highlighted research from TheInfoPro's (TIP) independent Wave 10 Storage Study today that showed that customers continue to switch from Symantec, HP, and IBM to CommVault software. In addition, CommVault is cited most often as being an alternative for those organizations considering switching from Symantec to a competitor, the company said.

"Our most recent storage study indicates that CommVault continues to build a strong constituency within the data management community as they were frequently mentioned as an alternative vendor amongst our interviewees," said Robert Stevenson, TheInfoPro's managing director of Storage Research. "In addition to its appeal to prospective new customers, CommVault was equally impressive in sustaining brand loyalty amongst its current customer base, who are happy with CommVault's future vision."

Of the over 250 organizations interviewed for the TIP Study, CommVault was found to have won over the largest percentage of new customers versus Symantec, HP and IBM, with 40 percent switching to CommVault from a competing vendor. Additionally, CommVault continues to enjoy strong customer loyalty - with 86 percent of CommVault users indicating they have no plans to switch to a competing vendor.

"It just makes sense to have one product handle all your data management needs versus multiple point products. CommVault's Simpana software just works, and with its singular approach to data management, it was an easy decision for us to make the switch," says Bob Gilley, global systems administrator, Southco, Inc. "CommVault offers the data protection we need and helps us ensure that we are meeting our retention and availability mandates. Ultimately, our business needs drove our decision to switch and we are already beginning to see our choice pay off."

When compared against Fortune 1000 ratings of backup and recovery technologies, CommVault has the best backup software promise and fulfillment ratings in a tightly clustered peer group-comprised of IBM, EMC, HP and Symantec-according to the TIP backup software market window. In addition, all of the CommVault users interviewed indicated they were spending the same or more with CommVault in 2007 as they did in 2006.

"The launch of CommVault Simpana 7.0 software provided the market with a fundamentally new approach to storage and data management, one that simplifies the data center environment and provides best-in-class data protection in a highly efficient and economical manner," said David West, CommVault's vice president of Marketing and Business Development. "The TIP study results demonstrate that the industry fully agrees. CommVault has been identified as a clear vendor of choice for customers looking to switch from their current storage vendor."
