So long, farewell.....
Fellow community members, Today is my last working day at Commvault, and I wanted to leave you all with a message of my appreciation and gratitude. 2 years ago, we were just about to launch an extremely ambitious project: a new and improved Commvault community. Our previous community never received much attention, so our expectations were a bit tempered. When the community launched, we could not have been happier! Fast forward 2 years and we have over 9000 members, with over 4000 topics! I'm beyond proud of everything we have all built together. Our world grows smaller every day. I have no doubt that this won't be the last time we speak with each other (there's always LinkedIn :-)). Keep helping each other and growing together. This community's best days are still ahead! Forever grateful,Mike
