Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It's a complete software that can protect all the main applications. Perhaps that's the feature I like most. The integration with the NetApp and other apps is also very nice.
It's very stable.
We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it.
It's the leader in backup and archiving.
It is much more scalable and flexible than everything else in the market.
In the VM, we have Live Recovery, Live Mount, and Live Sync.
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.
It's an enterprise product. It's a stable product. We have good support. Almost all databases are in the scope.
The most valuable feature is its consistency.
The ability to clone backups.
I have everything I need in the backup or in the partition.
It works with different types of partitions or different OSs.
Stability is always good. I have used Acronis for 10 years now, if not more. I have never had a problem with availability, etc.
It is a very fast and reliable backup, which requires less management and restores quickly.
The user interface (UI) is easy to use.
It is fast and easy for an image-based backup across all platforms.
Provides connectivity to a lot of different cloud storage solutions.
It has allowed me to implement a cost effective, highly configurable solution.
General ease of use and performance of the Windows version is the most valuable feature.
Client-side encryption minimizes worries about data being captured on the back-end.
Block level transfers have significantly reduced the amount of time for transfers over some other solutions
I think the one thing that could be improved is the customer experience. The interface should be more user friendly.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We previously had difficulty with the support being foreign.
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.
This is not a feature-rich solution.
I would like to see better centralized management, because I use it across multiple clients. To have a console that centrally manages them would be nice.
I would change the GUI a little to make it a bit more interactive. It should have a slightly more updated look, not something which looks like it was designed five years ago despite the fact it is easy to follow and very appealing.
It would be nice if it could support more types of storage: EMC, HPE, Veeam, etc.
If there was a wizard that would lead you down a road, when creating a backup, that would probably be better than having to go online or call somebody to actually do a backup. It's not intuitive...
I can't select a network location. I have to map a drive on the server, and then I have to select the mapped drive in order for it to put the backup out there.
Maybe implement an easier interface for basic users. For example, a set-up wizard with all the commonly used features as default.
The Linux GUI leaves a lot to be desired. It lacks many of the features of the Windows version and is buggy, but it is still usable.
The interface feels like it is targeted for end users who typically are looking for an all-in-one integrated push button solution. It would be better if the interface had a beginner mode and an expert mode.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The price could perhaps be lower as well.
In my experience, compared to solutions like Veritas and Veeam, while they do have their technical pluses and minuses, Commvault can save you on average forty percent initially, and then twenty to twenty-five percent annually.
Compared to other competitors and vendors the pricing is fair.
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.
I like the pricing, and that it is easy to use and has performed well.
It provides a good cost savings compared to our previous cloud backup.
We have a very good return on investment.
Pricing is reasonable although can be quite a large upfront cost.
