Commvault Review

A leader in backup and archiving, but the solution should have higher availability

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for Commvault is to archive our files. It allows us to move images from temporary storage to permanent storage. Commvault moves everything from the source to the destination, with categorization of the image archive.

What is most valuable?

Archiving and storage are very good.

It's the leader in backup and archiving.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs higher availability.

Its competitor, Veeam, includes backup and replication in the same product. I don't know if Commvault has it or not, but they should if they don't.

Also, they should have a module for reporting and supervising, like Veeam. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for about six months now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing for the solution used to be very expensive, but over the last year or so it's been lowered. 

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

Commvault is an industry leader. Also, the price is competitive with other solutions, like Veeam. In Morocco, all customers chose Veeam because it's very simple and also their price is not expensive. Now that Commvault has adjusted pricing, they are another solution that people should consider.

I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
