We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most important feature is that everything can be controlled using a single console.It provides us a good holistic view of everything that we have backed up so far. It also provides us all the recovery points. If we look at an an object that has been backed up, we can tell how many retention copies it has, how far we can go, and recover any data, if needed.The solution's interface is easy to use. For manageability, it doesn't matter where the resource is coming from or going to. That's the great power of the Control Panel: It's easy to use and does not matter if you manage on-prem or cloud resources.I'm a big fan of the reporting. You can build your own reports; it's very customizable. You can have individual reports going to groups of people or individuals. You can have them go out multiple times a day. It's basically a free-for-all as far as reporting goes. If anybody wants a specific job report every day, you can build it, schedule it, and have it go out and never touched it again. It's pretty nice.The solution provides us with a single platform to move, manage, and recover our data across on-premise locations. Some of the guys have been using it to move a virtual machine from VMware to the Microsoft solution, Hyper-V. They back it up and then they restore to the different virtual machine provider, and that works great.The multi-tenancy is the most valuable feature for us because it's the only software that is fully multi-tenant and that has all the features we need to provide to all our tenants. It provides us with advanced features for MySQL and Oracle, among other platformsThe most valuable feature is sharing data sets like they're in a private cloud. We call it our "private cloud" because we can share anything that is inside our backup set with our colleagues or with other people, and yet, everything is still in Belgrade, in Serbia. It's not somewhere else on cloud servers. Everything is in our environment.We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it.

The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues.The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency.All of the features are fantastic and also the management from Microsoft dealing with multiple machines is great. The whole package is excellent for me.The product has many valuable features for handling backup needs, including replication, live migration, and incremental disaster recovery.The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. The interface is also excellent.This solution is stable.The initial setup was simple and easy. Anyone without prior experience can install, configure, and use it.The intuitive interface allows you to set up and perform backups and restores easily.

The feature that I have found most valuable is its online backup capacity because you don't have to do an entire backup again and again, it just does whatever you type in, you type a, it goes a, you type b, it goes b. It doesn't take an entire site up again and again. So that incremental and bit by bit backup is important, it is a nice feature here.The solution is simple to use and easy to configure.Provides connectivity to a lot of different cloud storage solutions.It has allowed me to implement a cost effective, highly configurable solution.

Cons
I would like them not to push Command Center. It is good, but I would like them to enable all the features for the Java console. Some things are not in the Java console, like Office 365 agents. In fact, they are there, but one of the engineers had to show me how to configure it. It's not done the same as in the Command Center.It does not have an easy deployment. The deployment is not something that just anybody can go in and deploy.The solution's breadth and depth of cloud support are good, but could be better. Some cloud features that are common-sense, especially on AWS, are not completely integrated yet in the product. They are a work-in-progress.Command Center definitely gives us a complete view of our data. But finding some of the granular, very small items that we sometimes have to find, such as auxiliary copies for tapes, I still find that it's easier to navigate and, sometimes, only possible to find them using the CommCell tool.Just to keep it running is time-consuming. There are five people on my team. Commvault was supposed to be one of the less time-consuming solutions, but in reality it takes 60 percent of our time just to keep it running, and that's not even fine-tuning it; that's just to keep it running.There is room for improvement in its user interface and web console, called Command Center. They are improving it every year so if they continue in that direction, I think it will be a very reliable console.They can always improve the interface design to make it easier. Sometimes, you need to click two or three times to do something. They should look at what tabs are used most and make them more accessible, to cut the time it takes to get to that information.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 application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer.To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time.If you look into the performance of a virtual machine and you look to the performance of the physical machine, the correlation between these is totally unclear.Replication is not fast, the GUI could be more user-friendly, and technical support is lacking in Iran.The scalability of the solution is limited.The initial set up was complex, and I was not able to do the set up myself.Availability of physical server backup would be an added advantage.Migrating the physical through a backup and restore to a virtual environment would be very helpful.

As for what can be improved, some reports could be simplified so that you know how much backup you have done and what your backup details are. That report is available but it is very tough to get. I would like to know "today I have just uploaded 35 MB, tomorrow I have loaded 10 MB so my trend of backup is increasing."The graphics are looking a bit old and should be updated.Maybe implement an easier interface for basic users. For example, a set-up wizard with all the commonly used features as default.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Commvault licensing is a perpetual license so only the support is being renewed yearly.There is a bit of cost involved with signing up the entire solution. It's not a cheap solution.Our cost is around $20,000 per month. The previous year, it was around $30,000 per month. It now costs less because Commvault changed the licensing type for providers.Our yearly cost is around €20,000... The cost is based on the number of users and the amount of data. They sell it per terabyte.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.

The price is great for the utility you get and the licensing has never caused any issues with my company.Altaro had the best prices and ROI in the whole bunch that we evaluated.VMware is a little pricey, but it is a good solution and priced similar to other products.The pricing is okay,​By implementing the solution at multiple locations, significant cost savings were achieved.Altaro VM Backup is affordably priced. It is a best value for its price and has almost every feature that an expensive, popular product offers.

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.
