Commvault has announced another expansion of its Metallic Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) portfolio as it continues its global expansion.

On the heels of last quarter’s accelerated innovation, Metallic is adding new data protection solutions, features, and enterprise workload support. 

These include enhanced SaaS application protection with the introduction of Metallic Salesforce Backup and Microsoft Teams recovery enhancements; the addition of Oracle and Active Directory to Metallic Database Backup; and the expansion of its hybrid cloud capabilities with the addition of HyperScale X as a fully integrated appliance and edge offering for Metallic.

In addition, Metallic is now generally available in 23 countries in total, announcing support for nine new countries in the EMEA region, including Austria, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and Switzerland.

“As we continue our global rollout of Metallic, we’re finding more and more customers around the world are immediately grasping the value and inherent simplicity that cloud-native, as-a-service data protection can bring to their environments,” says Manoj Nair, general manager, Metallic. 

“With our new offerings like Salesforce and Oracle backup and our unique SaaS Plus capabilities, Metallic solutions offer customers what no other cloud-delivered backup service can match: the most comprehensive portfolio of BaaS solutions and the flexibility to backup each data source to the optimal storage target – whether that be cloud or on-premises storage, or the new HyperScale X for Metallic at the edge for ultimate performance with BaaS simplicity."
