Amsterdam, Netherlands and Tinton Falls, NJ: Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced that it will be providing full cloud backup and recovery solutions for Randstad across their global infrastructure. Randstad is using AWS cloud infrastructure as the basis for its new central Shared Service Centre (SSC) to deliver global IT services, and will be utilizing Commvault to maximize this offering.

Their IT infrastructure is currently being consolidated and centralized across 30 IT departments providing services to 40 Operating Companies in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. This transformation will increase efficiency, reduce risk and provide better service from an IT infrastructure perspective in alignment with Randstad’s global digital vision.

“Given the scale and business criticality of this AWS deployment, we needed a trusted provider to support this transformation with a robust and compatible solution,” said Bernardo Payet, General Manager for Randstad Global IT Solutions.  “Commvault was chosen based on their ability to deliver the scalability and flexibility of service necessary to complete the task in exact accordance with our requirements.”

In addition, the Commvault platform delivered deduplication and compression functionality, which will reduce storage consumption and save significant costs. Another critical reason for the selection was the proven integration between Randstad’s AWS based public cloud strategy, managed by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Commvault’s solutions.
