What is most valuable?

One of the biggest features is the global deduplication of our data sets. AWE have deployed a disk-to-disk-to-cloud solution for our on-premise backups. The capacity savings of this approach lead to significant cost savings on the long term... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have changed out approach to our ROBO backup solution. Utilising Commvault we can now automate the decommissioning of our remote project sites and convert these on-premise backups into Azure hosted VMs. This not only brings the service... more»

What needs improvement?

The new HTML5-based management portals are very nice, but do not yet have all of the features of the Java-based client. I’d like to see all of the features move over to HTML5 so that we do not have to use Java ideally.

What is most valuable?

It's an enterprise product. It's a stable product. We have good support. Almost all databases are in the scope. I can't really say anything bad about it. It’s a good, stable product.

How has it helped my organization?

They are evolving. Any time we encounter a problem, an issue, we have a good relation with the development of Commvault, and they work tightly with us together to solve the problem. The fix then becomes available in the new service pack.

What needs improvement?

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. I don't know exactly when they came out with the new... more»

What do you think of Commvault?

Improvements to My Organization We have covered all our important applications by backup policy and ensure that application owners are aware, how data is backed up and what RPO is expected, as well as cost of such backup implementation. • Valuable Features A wide range of application-specific agents with very flexible options related to backup, recovery and data management. Also, pretty we  • Room for Improvement Mostly controls, visibility, cost allocation. Other general features like backup protection (via multiple copies), storage optimization (like compression/deduplication, tape refresh etc.) were in place before we switched to CommVault. • Stability Issues Previously, with versions 8 and 9 yes.

What do you think of Commvault?

Improvements to My Organization Backups happen over night instead of 3 days. Storage for backups has been reduced by 60%. • Valuable Features The most valuable feature is the ability to backup over the dedicated Fiber Channel directly from SAN. There's no impact to the network or users. • Room for Improvement Bare-metal restore needs some work. It's not intuitive and seems to have been an afterthought. • Stability Issues We've had no issues with stability. • Scalability Issues As we have used and scaled out the product SQL integration with the companies automated scripts proved to be a challenge. The Work Flow feature is your only solution and therefor you end up with a mix of scripts then relying on the products work flow to run and return expected results...
