About the Acquisition

The promise of multi-cloud environments; cloud native applications; and DevOps, containers and microservices is here. With it, comes more complexity, silos and data fragmentation for IT professionals.

This acquisition is a game-changer. By integrating our software-defined storage capabilities with their industry-leading data management products, Commvault and Hedvig intend to create the industry standard solution for both passive and active data management in the cloud.

Together, Commvault and Hedvig will help you be ready to tackle the silos, vendor lock-in, and skill gaps you encounter along the way.


Press Release

“The combination of Commvault and Hedvig is potentially disruptive. Beyond the benefits of simplification and consolidation that come from the pairing of Commvault's data management and data protection and Hedvig's software-defined storage, Hedvig's ability to manage data for container and next generation application use cases will help Commvault give its customers the insight needed to better leverage the data in their repositories.”

“Gaining control over data is a top priority for companies, today. They need to know what data they have; where it’s placed; how it’s being used; and how effectively it’s being retained and secured. Companies must be able to link all of their data sets together and apply common rules around organizing, accessing and moving data. The combination of Hedvig’s distributed storage platform that works across companies’ own sites as well as leading cloud environments and Commvault’s extensive data management expertise can provide customers with a common data platform that speeds data-driven innovation without jeopardizing data control.”

Rick Villars

Research Vice President, Datacenter & Cloud, IDC

“With the acquisition of Hedvig, Commvault adds world-class software-defined storage that, thanks to its scale-out design, is ideal for secondary storage use cases. Commvault customers have the advantage of experiencing a modern, converged data protection solution that is also complete in its coverage of platforms, operating systems, and environments.”
