ORIIUM enhances data governance and security with Commvault
Data Security / Compliance Project of the Year
Entry Description
Commvault, a recognised global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, has announced that ORIIUM, one of the UK’s leading providers of data and application management solutions, has integrated Commvault HyperScale™ Appliance with its Azure and AWS environments, as well as its own cloud infrastructure. The integration will empower ORIIUM’s customers to manage and control their data and applications independently. ORIIUM also deployed Commvault Activate™ to leverage its file storage optimisation and data governance features, thereby reducing data sprawl and minimising the potential for data loss.

ORIIUM, a Commvault Service Advantage+ partner and the UK & Ireland’s only Commvault Advanced CASP partner, helps customers manage risk by delivering fully managed application control, data protection, governance and rapid recovery solutions. The company supports some of the largest multinational and public sector organisations — including the NHS — with round-the-clock protection and control of data and applications.

With growth projected to continue, ORIIUM needed a simplified and cost-effective solution to back up a wide range of systems, such as Salesforce, Microsoft 365, Oracle, and various proprietary cloud services. ORIIUM’s management team also wanted to move away from its collection of legacy tools, which utilised different interfaces and caused issues around reliability and scalability. The combination of Commvault HyperScale X Appliance and Commvault Activate made these objectives possible by delivering a single scalable, cost-effective, and secure solution for file storage optimisation, data governance, eDiscovery and compliance.

Using Commvault’s live sync and rapid recovery features, ORIIUM has enabled customers to cut data management costs by up to 30% while drastically reducing Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Deploying Commvault’s solution has also made it easier to search for sensitive data and respond faster to compliance requests. In addition, Commvault’s data insight capabilities have enabled ORIIUM’s customers to make informed decisions about where data should reside and what security measures need to be considered.

Chris Kiaie, Managing Director at ORIIUM, comments:“We rely on Commvault’s continuing innovation to take our products and services to market. It has the breadth of capability and the support for technology such as public cloud, software as a service, and hyperconverged, and also capabilities supporting information governance such as Activate and rapid ransomware recovery such as live sync. We use all of these Commvault products both internally and for our customers to ensure that they get the best experience and a market-leading capability when it comes to data control, management, protection, and recovery.”

Commvault Activate enables ORIIUM’s customers to take a more proactive, responsive approach to data management, reduce the risk of data theft or breach, and make more data-driven decisions. This integrated approach combines Commvault Data Governance, Commvault File Storage Optimisation, and Commvault eDiscovery & Compliance. It ensures ORIIUM has a single access point to a family of data solutions that are optimised for ease-of-use and able to deliver tangible customer benefits.

Kiaie explains: “Data governance is not a nice to have, it’s a necessity. Commvault Activate enables us to govern customer data universally and reduce risk. The beauty of Commvault Activate is that it helps us govern data no matter where it resides and reduces data sprawl.”

Jonathan Bowl, AVP UK&I and Nordics at Commvault, concludes: “We’re thrilled to support ORIIUM, one of the UK’s most innovative managed service providers and the country’s only Advanced Commvault Authorised Support Partner. This installation, together with ORIIUM’s dedicated customer commitment and tireless innovation, means ORIIUM customers can be confident that their data is secure and available regardless of platforms or cloud service providers. It also ensures ORIIUM customers have the tools they need to respond faster to compliance requests and can mitigate against potential data-associated risks.”
