SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) – At this week's VMworld 2012 conference, the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) will discuss the agency's selection of CommVault® Simpana® software and VMware server virtualization technology as part of its new "Cloud-First Policy" that now requires every application, networking, server and storage system to be cloud-ready. The CCSF is transforming the way it delivers IT services to its constituents through the citywide adoption of virtualization, which has increased its ability to scale its cloud infrastructure and provide faster, more reliable services to meet business needs. As a result, the CCSF has significantly decreased capital and operational expenses to achieve nearly $2 million in cost avoidance and ensured its cloud services can grow with the business.
Gina Tomlinson, CTO for the City and County of San Francisco, will detail the agency's journey to the cloud alongside CommVault COO, Al Bunte, in a VMworld Super Spotlight session on Tuesday, August 28 th, from 12:00-1:00PM; attendees can register here.
The primary charter of the CCSF's Department of Technology is to consolidate data center, server and email systems across its approximately 60 agencies and close to 30,000 employees and to serve as a centralized IT organization for the City and County. The CCSF uses CommVault to back up approximately 100 terabytes of data daily across ten agencies. The City and County standardized on Simpana software because of CommVault's single platform, hardware-agnostic approach to data management and its ability to protect applications in physical, virtual or cloud environments.Tweet This: .Learn how the City and County of San Francisco is driving #Cloud-First mandates w/@CommVault at #VMworld http://bit.ly/MRgiH2 The CCSF Benefits from a "Cloud-First" Strategy Based on CommVault:
