Commvault chooses IRENT as demo partner for HyperScale appliances

IRENT to handle logistics for HyperScale demo systems throughout EMEA.

UTRECHT, 30 January 2019 – Commvault, the supplier of enterprise solutions for backup and recovery, archiving and data management, has appointed IRENT as its demo partner in the EMEA region. IRENT will coordinate the full logistical process for the Proof of Concept (PoC) configurations for Commvault’s HyperScale™ Appliance. Besides sending and returning the demo units, IRENT will also handle the entire process of assembly, installation, data wiping, de-installation and the factory reset of the units.

Commvault has produced a wide range of HyperScale appliances with PoC configurations throughout the EMEA region. These appliances will be made available to potential customers for a period of two weeks. After that, IRENT will take back the units and get them ready for the next demo. For the duration of the demo, IRENT will remain in close contact with all the parties concerned and in that way manage the process between Commvault, the partner, the distributor and the customer. Commvault has trained specialists at IRENT to analyse the customer’s IT environment and, where necessary, play an advisory role.

Roderick Bijker, Business Manager at IRENT: “With the HyperScale appliance, Commvault is launching an innovative technology on the market that’s easy to install and that greatly simplifies a complex IT infrastructure. The best way to introduce companies to the power of the HyperScale appliance is by getting them to install it in their own IT environments with their own workloads and applications. Then they can test the possibilities and impossibilities themselves,” says Bijker. “The test results will help companies make the right choices so that they can be sure they’re investing in the right technology. By handling the demo process for Commvault, we can help potential customers to make an informed decision faster.”

“We want to give companies the opportunity to temporarily test the HyperScale appliance in a demo systems and experience first-hand the many benefits that the appliance has to offer,” says Arno van der Sijde, EMEA Senior Business Development Manager HyperScale at Commvault. “IRENT has an independent position in the market and is therefore the partner of choice to handle of the logistical process for the PoC’s for us. They have wide-ranging experience in leasing data center systems from numerous suppliers in the enterprise market in the EMEA region. IRENT can also supply extra components, such as switches and cables, for the demo systems. And it can install the HyperScale appliance in every possible IT environment in a very short time.”
