Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognised global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, announced today the availability of Metallic SaaS Backup & Recovery in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). This marks the first global expansion for Metallic, a Commvault venture, outside of the North America. Metallic delivers a new SaaS portfolio of proven enterprise-grade data protection solutions that better enable companies to protect their data with an affordable, low-maintenance, scalable and flexible platform whether their data sits on premises or across hybrid and cloud-based environments.
Australia and New Zealand continues to be a priority market for Commvault, as cloud adoption across the region leads global averages.

Gartner also predicts that software as a service (SaaS) will be the largest market segment with a forecast to reach $116 billion worldwide in 2020 due to the scalability of subscription-based software.
