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.Reverse Delta is Altaro proprietary backup deduplication technology. With Reverse Delta, the latest version of a file is always made available in its entirety, not as a delta file.We frequently use the granular restore option for when our users accidentally delete files or to recover emails from mailboxes. We have found that to be a must-have feature and it comes with the solution at no extra cost.

Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.Very flexible, all-in-one solution.We get a lot of features with Veeam and we are happy to use this solution. After shutdown, the servers here automatically turn off and Veeam is keeping up all this. It's tension free work.It has helped us transfer the solution in two days instead of working for a minimum of one week to ten days.

Cons
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.

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.It would be nice to see a feature that backs up the host so that, in case of a server failure, an entire server could be restored all at once.

Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there.Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.Needs better integration with cloud service providers.We try to compare Veeam with other solutions because we are the operations. Then we can give the answers for improvement which is the specific additional system features that other solutions provide.

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.

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.

The price of Veeam is much lower than the IBM solution.We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.The product is competitively priced.The pricing is good and affordable.The price is slightly higher than its competitors.The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill.I would suggest to others that they buy the full license when purchasing this solution.Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.
