<p>SYDNEY, Australia, - April 3, 2008 – CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) today announced the appointment of SAN SystemsTM (a business unit of Distribution CentralTM Pty Limited) as the latest distribution partner for the CommVault® Simpana® software suite of data protection, replication, archive, search and resource management solutions in Australia.</p>
<p>“SAN Systems is a natural choice for us since they complement our existing distribution partners while adding significant technical expertise in the data management market,” said Gerry Sillars, managing director ANZ for CommVault. “The combination of their track record in the storage market, existing partners such as NetApp, and the outstanding technical support services offered to their channel makes SAN Systems an ideal partner for CommVault.”</p>
<p>As a national distribution partner in Australia, SAN Systems will offer its resellers comprehensive CommVault training, accreditation and certification, direct contact with dedicated CommVault sales and pre-sales teams including specialised archive resources, as well as professional services support to assist with lab testing, shadow engagements and pass-through services.</p>
<p>“Together, SAN Systems field expertise and CommVault's software are a natural fit for data management in multiple markets," said Nick Verykios, marketing director for Distribution Central and SAN Systems. “SAN Systems has considerable experience in offering complete IT solutions. As one of the leading software manufacturers in the storage market, CommVault makes a lot of sense to customers looking for end-to-end data management solutions. While there are a lot of choices on the market today, because of the reliability and value inherent in CommVault’s unique Simpana single platform approach, we can lead with CommVault software which greatly complements many of our existing storage infrastructure and services offerings. We look forward to optimising new market opportunities through our relationship with CommVault."</p>
<p>Commenting on CommVault’s continued investment in its channel, Sillars added, "As CommVault's channel program continues to evolve, channel partners are likely to see greater benefits from working with CommVault including improved sales, technical and marketing support. In turn, this provides CommVault a way to extend its market reach so that more partners can get access to CommVault's expertise, and customers can get access to the company’s products and services.”</p>
