At Commvault, we are constantly looking for ways to solve hard data management challenges in the most elegant way. In reviewing our current quarterly feature release cadence and observing customer upgrade patterns, we have found an excellent opportunity to improve on the customer experience while continuing to innovate and extend our leadership position in the industry.As some of you might recall, about three years ago we introduced “Long-Term Support” (LTS) releases for our customers who wanted to remain on a supported release for a longer period of time. This option has proven to be very popular – in fact, most of our customers are currently using LTS releases today.Therefore, beginning this year, Commvault is moving from a 3-month to a 6-month release cadence, where new software releases will become available every six months instead of every quarter. Please note the following with respect to this change:Simpler customer upgrade experience: With this move to semi-annual releases, we
