Commvault Valuable Features

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 retention of data in the cloud for us. We have also been very impressed with the integration with public cloud services. We have deployed our Commvault environment on-premise and into Azure and this has given us the ability to not only make use of cloud storage for long tern retention, but also achieve the same level of protection as our on-premise systems for our Azure hosted IaaS VMs. We have also deployed backups from Commvault in Azure to our Office 365 install base too. The cloud integration is a massive win for us, giving us a single backup service for all of our on-premise and cloud systems. I have also been very happy with the automated updating of the platform. Since we have been running the platform we have had around five service packs released. These are automatically updated after a period of time (we set the system to defer updates for one month). The updates run without service disruption and patches the central management system, the media agents and the client agents too. Compared to our previous vendor this is another huge operational saving for out IT staff and ensures we get to utilize the new features that are dropped with each new SP. View full review »

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 it easier to reach the data that you need within the minimum downtime when it's required. View full review »

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. View full review »

* There are many features that I value Commvault for, but to name only a few: * Wide support for different OSS and applications. You can backup almost anything with Commvault. * Policy-based configuration, which allows for easily configurable policies for even larger environments. * Central administration: Management and deployment are done from one administration console. No need to login to clients neither during configuration nor during installation. Upgrades and SP installation can also be done automatically or manually from the administration console. * Great working global deduplication which saves a lot of space and bandwidth if you want to use replication. It can be configured as a source or target side. * Ability to easily configure data flows between primary and secondary storage using different storage (disk, tape, or cloud) with different policies for each storage. * Built-in reports provide better visibility with almost zero effort put into the configuration. * Great archive feature, OnePass, for the file system and Exchange servers. * Great stability and resiliency, and many others.

There are a lot of good features. Here are some of them: * Capacity-based licensing * 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). * Relatively easy to use GUI * You can protect/backup virtually any kind of data from virtually any corporate type application (in-house or commercial) from one management console. * Has the highest backup/restore granularity that I have seen in any data management tool. * An extremely fast search engine for restoring and securing data and is hardware agnostic so you do not depend on excessively expensive storage hardware.
