The Commvault Competitive Advantage

Commvault leverages Azure Stack APIs to directly protect and recover data in Azure Stack. Native integration enables backup and recovery of VMs and their configuration (along with Azure Blob storage) without the use of 3rd party tools, directly into Azure and Azure Stack. Other vendors deploy agents in each VM, increasing cost and complexity, and requiring multiple-step backup processes. Commvault deploys agents only when data-aware application recovery is required.
