“I am excited to be leading this initiative to greatly extend Commvault’s global footprint together with partners and customers by aligning our tremendous innovation and leadership in data protection with world-class offerings from leading organisations,” said Taraniuk.

“I am grateful for the strong vote of confidence from Ron and Commvault’s executive team and look forward to driving new opportunities for growth and revenue with our current and potential partners, through ease of experience and winning solutions.
