This capability is being demonstrated at the Microsoft Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in Seattle April 25-27, 2005.

The CommVault QiNetix Windows-Centric Unified Data Management suite has been designed and integrated to fully leverage the new x64 versions of Windows. CommVault's Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition significantly enhances the performance of enterprise data management components, including the writing of data to various media devices connected to x64 servers.

The QiNetix product suite, which runs on both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows, unifies backup and recovery, point-in-time replication, HSM, archiving for compliance, SRM and service level management. CommVault customers can add 64-bit servers as needed because QiNetix can seamlessly mix and match both chipsets in a single enterprise. Since Microsoft requires that data management applications must support 64-bit, CommVault customers can proceed with confidence in using the new x64 versions of Windows, knowing that CommVault's QiNetix suite is filly compliant with Microsoft's requirements.
