CommVault has expanded its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer support for the Cloud services company’s petabyte-scale data transport solution, Snowball.

CommVault’s support looks to enable faster migration of large amounts of data and will provide disaster recovery options in the Cloud.

The company said by using AWS Snowball with CommVault software, customers can also overcome challenges associated with large-scale data transfers such as high network costs and security concerns.

"CommVault shares in our vision to give customers differentiated options for mapping their journey to the Cloud by using AWS Snowball as a new alternative model for simplifying Cloud adoption and data transfer to increase operational efficiencies, mobility and speed," AWS vice-president of engineering, Bill Vass, said.

CommVault senior director and general manager of Cloud business unit, Sabrinath Rao, said AWS is an "important collaborator", with Snowball a "natural fit" and extension of integration with the company’s portfolio.

“Accelerating our customers’ journey to the AWS Cloud and removing friction from the process is core to CommVault’s value proposition," he said.

"It is a testament to our commitment to our mutual customers in accelerating new and innovative ways to leverage the power of the Cloud across all stages of the experience while keeping their data protected and accessible at all times."

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
