NetApp sympathetic to CommVault's Simpana

OEM or reseller deal next year

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Blog There is talk of a possible OEM or reseller deal between NetApp and CommVault next year.

CommVault's Simpana data management software suite was recently upgraded to version 9, which has an end-to-end deduplication capability. NetApp has also shown itself interested in expanding its deduplication offerings – witness its October deal with Fujitsu.

Stifel Nicolaus analysts Aaron Rakers and Matthew Nahorski issued a note recently citing conversations that seemed indicative of a deepening relationship between CommVault and NetApp. This comes after CommVault signed a master distribution agreement with Hitachi Computer Peripherals, which should increase its sales into Japan. There could be integration between CommVault's Simpana 9.0 and NetApp in the areas of snap replication and Snap Protect, particularly with the latter's ability to back up hundreds of virtual machines in a few minutes.

The analysts think it likely CommVault will announce the ability for existing Simpana customers to upgrade to version 9 later this month or in January. ®
