Commvault has joined Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s reseller program.

The cloud recovery and backup company made the announcement March 5 and said it’s joining HPE Complete – HPE’s one-stop shop for validated HPE and third-party partner solutions – to make it easier for government, healthcare and other enterprises to purchase their Complete Commvault Software solutions through HPE channel partners.

“This announcement further strengthens the partnership between Commvault and HPE, providing customers with a one-stop-shop for Commvault’s backup, recovery and data protection software and HPE’s Storage products,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO of Commvault, in a press release. “By joining HPE Complete, we provide enterprises with yet another channel for them to secure the industry’s most powerful data platform, and with it, the control, flexibility and automation they need to implement digital transformation initiatives that use data to lower operational expenses, reduce risks and improve business outcomes.”

And digital transportation, at a low cost, is something enterprises chase all the time, in addition to migrating data between on-prem and the cloud, said Patrick Osborne, director of storage and big data product management for HPE. HPE Complete Commvault Software solutions fits that bill perfectly, he adds.

“With HPE Complete Commvault Software, enterprises can now minimize the risk, complexity and cost of deploying Commvault’s powerful data protection and backup solutions on HPE Storage products,” he said. “This allows them to more quickly and easily use Commvault’s Software to reduce data complexity, migrate data between on-premises and cloud infrastructure, ensure all their data is fully protected and recoverable and activate data to secure valuable insights.”

Commvault says the reselling agreement complements other existing partnerships between the two companies, such as HPE’s selection of the Commvault Data Platform to power its new HPE GreenLake Backup solution. That announcement, made back in January, helped simplify the experience for customers, said HPE.

HPE Complete Commvault Software solutions are available through HPE’s direct and global reseller channels worldwide. Last week, Commvault announced that Bassam Hemdan will be the company’s new vice-president for their Canadian business.
