Trusted Partners

Strong vendor relationships and multi-vendor solutions

We’re proud of the strong relationships we’ve built with our vendor partners, which enables us to add maximum value to you as our customer. Each of our carefully chosen partners is a technology leader, that has a unique range of solutions and typically strong technology integration with many of our other vendors – examples of this include NetApp’s partnerships with VMware, Commvault, Veeam, Fujitsu and ProLion.

As no single vendor has the best of everything, our ‘deep and broad’ understanding of our partner’s portfolios allows us to use a blend of technologies from multiple vendors to build the optimal solution for your organisation – this is something that is not possible to achieve if you are working directly with the vendors.

SNS have been a Commvault partner for over a decade, during this time they have evolved from being a supplier of enterprise-grade backup technology for physical servers and VMs, to supplying the most feature rich data management solution on the market – providing backup, disaster recovery, archiving, compliance, eDiscovery and data governance for all major hypervisors, clouds, operating systems, applications and storage platforms.

Unlike their competitors, who struggle to deliver equivalent functionality from numerous separate products, Commvault delivers all of its capabilities from a single extensible platform.
