CommVault, a provider of Unified Data Management solutions and Bull, have signed a multi-year original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement that will enable Bull to market and sell Bull-branded versions of CommVault's full suite of data management software through its channels worldwide. The addition of CommVault software products, which will be sold by Bull under the Calypso name, will also round out Bull's StoreWay line of storage offerings for IT enterprises in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Bull provides companies with global, available, and reliable storage infrastructures. Bull will position Calypso as its preferred data management partner and Bull's partnerships with storage vendors including Brocade, EMC, and NetApp will be complemented by CommVault's suite of products. This is designed to enable heterogeneous IT enterprises to leverage the use of disk and library devices, shared server and network infrastructure, and a single unified console for data management.
The new Bull-branded software will include data replication, data protection, archive, data classification, and content indexing, and can be combined to protect and manage data across heterogeneous systems, data centers, and remote sites. Calypso will be available to Bull customers in the summer of 2007.
