CEO Sanjay Mirchandani On Commvault's Future: Metallic, Hedvig, Data Management

Mirchandani told CRN that the speed at which Commvault built its Metallic SaaS data protection and data management application and acquired software-defined storage developer Hedvig are proof points that his company is not the stodgy vendor of old.

Commvault Moving Like Never Before

When Sanjay Mirchandani joined Commvault as CEO about a year ago, Commvault was no one's idea of a data protection and data management software star. While the company was acknowledged to have leading edge data protection technology, it seemed more like one of the old guard of the industry when compared to a growing list of smaller startups that seemed, via their marketing if nothing else, to be running circles around Commvault and its older peers.

Mirchandani in the past year has moved to change that perception. And he and his team have moved with a speed not possible before his taking over. He reshaped Commvault's sales and channel teams. He detailed a team to act like a startup to develop Metallic, Commvault's SaaS data protection and management offering focused on SMB and midrange clients. And he led Commvault's first acquisition, that of Hedvig, a developer of software-defined storage technology that gives his company new abilities to work in heterogeneous storage environments.

CRN recently sat down with Mirchandani to talk about these and other major changes Commvault has seen since he joined the company, as well as the expected impacts those changes will have on the company and its channel partners going forward.

To learn more about why Commvault probably should not be put in the "stodgy vendor" category any longer, turn the page.
