Support for this product needs to be improved because I have seen a couple of cases where it is taking more than the required time to solve issues.

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.

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.

The back of virtual machines needs improvement. I know they're working on it. They're always doing new things but I think they still have a little bit more to do.

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.

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