Commvault says its enterprise backup, recover and archive solutions will get a significant upgrade following a new partnership with Lucidworks.

The two companies will work together to bring new innovations in artificial intelligence to the data backup and protection market, the company announced today. It will lead to faster discovery of valuable data, better information governance and risk mitigation, said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO for Commvault.

“As a combined offering, we will enable enterprises to be more progressive with their data and leverage it as a key strategic asset for driving digital transformation, managing risk, and achieving desired business results with better access to the right information,” he said in a statement.

Commvault says that when updated AI models from Lucidworks and search usage data are reapplied to data from Commvault, end users will have more context to the data they’re working with, and allow them to discover the relevant data they need much faster.

Will Hayes, CEO of Lucidworks, said their AI and machine learning capabilities is a perfect fit with Commvault’s analytics offerings and data platforms.

“With the integration of Lucidworks technology into Commvault software, customers will gain valuable insights from their data to make better strategic decisions for the business, while having the peace of mind knowing their IT infrastructure is protected and always self-learning to improve internal processes and drive increased efficiency,” he said.

According to Lucidworks, Reddit, Red Hat, Moody’s, the U.S. Census and now Commvault, are just some of the organizations they work with.
