Krista Macomber, analyst at Evaluator Group, added that maintaining and paying for ever-growing pools of archive data is something customers struggle with. While storing the data on premises might be less expensive than in the cloud, cloud cost management is a key benefit of Metallic File & Object Archive, according to Macomber.

Expanding options

Metallic File & Object Archive, which is available now and starts at $58.50 per TB, per month, offers immutable archiving and air-gapped protection, according to the company. The service uses Commvault’s intelligent data placement to ensure regulatory compliance.

With automated data movement, Commvault can meet compliance requirements from the customer, Yu said.

Commvault’s metadata cataloging for search or e-discovery and automated lifecycle management is another benefit for customers looking for an archive product, Macomber said.
