What is most valuable?

The Commvault Console is very good, as it is capable of archive and backup in the same system. This solution is very successful at cross-platform replication.

What needs improvement?

This solution can be complex and difficult to administer because it supports all of the many platforms, so it would help if they could simplify it. Right now, replication is limited and we would like to see the limitation decreased.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Acronis as our backup solution in this company, but it is not a stable product. It fails as we need to restore a backup, and we needed a stable product. We also needed support for many different platforms. I had worked… more»

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I recommend because it is stable and has good support. However, it still has some limitations and can be improved. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before we switched to Commvault from Acronis.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is simple to use.

What needs improvement?

I would like to be able to limit the bandwidth in cases, for example, where we are uploading the backup. I may want to set it to a maximum of 128kb in the application itself. I would also like to be able to move from one licensed product to… more»

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

Our licensing fees are billed every four months.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Prior to using this solution, we were using Acronis. We switched to see what the performance and functionality would be like with this solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody researching this type of solution is to consider what it is that you need to have backed up. I would recommend this solution for those who are backing up documents for Windows or Mac. However, for Linux machines, this… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the replication to the cloud and the deduplication. The encryption and password protection options are very good.

What needs improvement?

Taking a snapshot level backup with this solution is very slow compared to other products. The speed of this needs to be improved. In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the… more»

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

Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used to provide Veeam Backup, as well as Acronis. The pricing for continuous replication is higher than for this solution.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution because it offers multiple hybrid options. The same product can support local backup, cloud backup, and backup a server to the cloud as well. It is a complete portfolio available in a single product. When comparing… more»
