OCEANPORT, N.J., June 11, 2013

OCEANPORT, N.J., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) -- For
the third consecutive year, CommVault has been positioned in the "Leaders"
quadrant of Gartner Inc.'s "Magic Quadrant: Enterprise Backup/Recovery
Software[1]." According to Gartner, "The Magic Quadrant for Enterprise
Backup/Recovery Software presents the next step in the evolution of backup,
which incorporates new products, solutions and techniques for protecting,
backing up and recovering desktop, laptop, physical server and virtual server
files, applications and system images. These backup products provide features
such as traditional backup to tape, backup to conventional disk, backup to the
cloud, data reduction (compression and deduplication), snapshot, heterogeneous
replication, continuous data protection (CDP) and/or virtual tape library
(VTL) support, among other capabilities."

CommVault is leading this evolution by delivering innovative solutions that go
beyond the technology-based, IT-centric functions of backup, archive,
replication, and snapshot management to address much broader business needs.
With Simpana® 10, CommVault provides instant information access across all
current and historical data created by an organization – from servers to
laptops, in the data center and the cloud. Simpana 10 empowers workers with
self-service access, compliance search, data mining and reporting – all from a
single platform.

"Being recognized as a Leader by Gartner for three years running reinforces
our commitment to delivering unique, innovative solutions for data and
information management," said N. Robert Hammer, Chairman, President and CEO,
CommVault. "We believe it also confirms that CommVault's singular platform
approach is helping customers protect their data, provide simplified secure
access to their data, reduce compliance risk and make it easier to transform
data into valuable business information."

CommVault believes this designation reinforces our vision that the future of
storage is moving toward unified data and information as enterprises adopt
modern techniques to protect and recover their critical applications. Gartner
states that the industry continues to undergo significant change as
organizations embrace new technologies and techniques and show a propensity to
augment or switch legacy vendors and backup techniques. According to the
report, "between 2012 and 2016, one-third of organizations will change backup
vendors due to frustration over cost, complexity and/or capability."

CommVault is dedicated to helping customers improve efficiency and reduce
operational costs. With the recent debut of Simpana® 10, CommVault is
continuing to innovate through the addition of more than 300 new features that
combine to reduce risk, slash costs by up to half, reduce administrative
overhead by up to 80 percent and lower aggregate support costs by up to 35

Gartner also states that "by 2016, at least 20 percent of large enterprises
will abandon backup/recovery solutions using a traditional methodology and
adopt those that employ only snapshot and replication techniques, up from less
than 7 percent today."

CommVault anticipated this industry shift and, through its IntelliSnap®
snapshot management technology, provides automated recovery of applications
and virtual servers. Simpana 10 expands IntelliSnap management of snapshot,
backup and replication by adding new integration and use cases to extend
customers' existing investments and increase flexibility.

CommVault offers the industry's broadest support for integrating with and
exploiting storage hardware platform replication and snapshots, directly
supporting all the major storage arrays.
