They discuss how Commvault created Metallic as an internal startup using Commvault’s resources but running as a separate entity to the rest of Commvault.

Mirchandani explains who the new SaaS offering is for, and how it relates to the rest of Commvault’s products.

They also talk about the broader market trends in data protection and data management, and what the likely reaction from Commvault’s competitors will be.
