US-based data protection and data management software company Commvault is rolling out its Metallic ‘Data Management as a Service’ (DMaaS) solutions in Qatar to provide enterprises with centralized storage for disparate data sources.

Metallic’s enterprise-grade portfolio includes cloud-based solutions for safeguarding a broad range of workloads from SaaS applications like Office 365 to VMs and containers, enterprise databases, endpoints, and more. With this expanded availability, customers are now better able to seamlessly address growing business concerns around cost, scalability, and security as they manage data across increasingly complex hybrid cloud environments, drive compliance and protect against growing cyber threats.

Metallic has been engineered to offer industry-leading data protection in support of customers’ Data Sovereignty and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance efforts. To be GDPR compliant, companies must meet strict standards for accountability, security, confidentiality, and resilience.
