Commvault is a publicly traded data protection and information management software company headquartered in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. It was formed in 1988 as a development group in Bell Labs, and later became a business unit of AT&T Network Systems. It was incorporated in 1996.[3]

Commvault software assists organizations with data backup and recovery, cloud and infrastructure management, and retention and compliance.


Commvault's business is split between software licensing and services.


Commvault software is an enterprise-level data platform that contains modules to back up, restore, archive, replicate, and search data. It is built from the ground-up on a single platform and unified code base.

Data is protected by installing agent software on the physical or virtual hosts, which use operating system or application native APIs to protect data in a consistent state. Production data is processed by the agent software on client computers and backed up through a data manager, the MediaAgent, to disk, tape, or cloud storage. All data management activity in the environment is tracked by a centralized server, the CommServe, and can be managed by administrators through a central user interface. End users can access protected data using web browsers and mobile devices.

In 2018, Commvault began to sell the Hyperscale Backup appliance.[4] The appliance has Commvault software pre-integrated with hardware, so customers can install it directly in their data centers.


Commvault provides consulting services for customers. Commvault advises customers with setting up new data management systems from the architecture design to the implementation and monitoring. In the remote managed service, Commvault manages the software in production for their customers.[5]
