The cloud integration is a massive win for us, giving us a single backup service for all of our on-premise and cloud systems.

Global deduplication and the indexing of the data object are the most valuable features. It saves costs on the product side by doing compression and deduplication. It will help you and make your life easy to reach the data that you need within the minimum downtime when it's required.

A very stable and scalable platform (you can backup/restore/protect a couple of MBs or hundred of TBs as well from the same console/platform).

The new HTML5-based management portals are very nice, but do not yet have all of the features of the Java-based client.

The setup is not that straightforward or easy. Even the documentation is not generic or public like other products. You have to be a partner or you have to have a specific account and download it from the vendor themselves.

You need quite a lot of human resources to maintain a Commvault environment, to keep it operational. Also, it would be nice to if there were an easier way set up some Commvault components.
The HTML interface is a remarkable improvement. However, there are still some features that are not available in that interface that are available in the Java console, but I'm sure that will come with time.

Reduce the complexity for better understanding of the reports. There are a lot of variables in which you can get confused while elaborating on reports.

I just wanted to compare the features, which are there in EMC NetWorker, which are not available in Commvault. We have things using Networker.
