"We received hundreds of entries this year, and the Excellence Awards judges were impressed by the extent to which the products and services reflect today's increasingly complex challenges," said eWEEK editor Debra Donston. "The winners, including the CommVault Simpana software suite in the Storage Software category, rose to the top for their innovation, their cost-effectiveness and their ability to help companies align technology with business needs."

CommVault's Simpana software suite, adopted by thousands of customers since its introduction in July of last year, addresses the problems end-users face as they try to manage data to fulfill their current risk mitigation, disaster recovery, or archive and compliance requirements. With CommVault Simpana software, storage management technologies are unified to meet customer demand for a single data and information management platform rather than having the user be the integrator for multiple point solutions. By giving businesses a single, holistic view across multiple data silos and storage tiers with its unique Singular Information Management® approach, CommVault Simpana software enhances an organization's ability to remain competitive by helping to maximize business resources and reducing costs, while improving the responsiveness and agility of the IT organization.

"We are honored to be recognized by eWEEK for our innovations in delivering next-generation data protection and information management technology," said Bob Hammer, CommVault's chairman, president and CEO. "Today's award is a significant endorsement of CommVault's leadership in the data and information management market and reaffirms our commitment to delivering best-in-class enterprise software solutions to our customers."

This award is the seventh notable industry accolade CommVault has won since the company launched the Simpana suite in July 2007, including the Diogenes Labs/Storage Magazine Quality Award, Storage Magazine Product of the Year Gold Medal in Backup and Recovery, SNW Fall Best Practices in Storage Awards, SearchServerVirtualization Product of the Year Silver Medal Award, and ServerWatch Best Compliance Automation Tool.

The eWEEK Excellence Awards program provides enterprise professionals with a comprehensive benchmark for assessing a wide range of technology products and services.
