Commvault Stability

Head of Information Technology Group at Ministry of Environmental Protection
Every type of software, even Microsoft, has some problems. It's not possible to make something without some patches or little bugs. But until now, over the years we have been using it, we haven't had any big problem where we said, "Oh, this is not working." We have had some problems and opened tickets and support has helped us very fast. We can say we are generally happy with Commvault. It's not possible to expect to buy something and never have a problem with it. That's especially true when you add something new; it depends on your hardware environment. It also depends on your network and your users' backup behavior. It's not possible that something will be perfect. View full review »

Brijesh Parikh
Senior Architect, Cloud Infrastructure at a tech vendor with 501-1,000 employees
It has been pretty stable. We have not run into a situation where our systems were compromised. However, we have run into system corruption issues and were back in business within about two hours. Right now, we only have one primary administrator for this product. We have a couple of backups in case this person or another is on vacation. We have other people who have been provided good knowledge transfer on how this product works. This way, if either of them is unavailable, there is somebody who can do the job. View full review »

Datacenter Manager at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
It's very stable. To be completely frank, I beat the heck out of it, 24/7 and 365. We're a healthcare laboratory company that never closes. We're an around-the-clock operation in all of our locations. The backup jobs are running, and the reports are running, around the clock. Everything runs constantly but we have had zero downtime.

Sr. Network Analyst at a government with 5,001-10,000 employees
It's not very stable in our environment. Every day there is something weird going on. When we solve the "weird thing of the week," the next day something different goes on. View full review »

Sr. Enterprise Solutions Engineer at CMC
The stability is excellent. Once you install and configure everything the right way, there is only the infrastructure. If there is a problem with the infrastructure, it will reflect on your backup. If there are no problems with the infrastructure, then there will be no problems. I have been working with Commvault for two years and don't remember opening more than 10 cases for a lot of customers. View full review »

When you talk about backup it must be stable. If not, we would change the tool. View full review »

The stability is okay. It's stable. We haven't had many problems with the solution. If you know the solution and know what you are doing, the stability will be okay. But you must have a deeper knowledge of the solution. For this, they have good Education Services on their site, and they will help you a lot. If you do it yourself you will make mistakes and encounter some problems with configuration. It will be much slower and more painful for you. Or you can use help from Commvault Education or Commvault Services. View full review »

Enterprise Solutions Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The backup performance and management are ok. However, when something is not working, it is probably fifty percent due to product immaturity. View full review »
Michel Scheepers
Technical Consultant at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
It is very stable. We have some little issues with it, but when we have issues they're always related to the application we want to back up, not to the product itself. We ask a lot of the product; we use it in a fairly hard way on several things. Sometimes we hit the boundaries of the product and we encounter issues. But in day-to-day business, we don't see any real issues related to the infrastructure or the load we can give it. View full review »
Senior Technical Support Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
It's stable. Sometimes the Java console might not respond. It might happen one out of 20 times that the Java console might crash. And then we have to use Task Manager to end it and reopen it. Other than that, the server has never crashed nor has the database ever crashed. View full review »

The stability is really good. Once you implement it properly you can forget. It's an automated solution. You don't need to troubleshoot anything. View full review »
