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 features are the replication to the cloud and the deduplication.
The backup is the most valuable feature. It also makes storage very easy.
The data protection functionality is the most valuable feature of this solution.
The most valuable features of this solution are that I can by just one click, copy and paste anything that I would want. I do not have to restore the whole virtual machine.
It is very stable.
It allows us to back up all the servers and centrally manage them.
The predictive analytics are great and the reporting is awesome.
It is fairly stable.
If you are a large organization, this is a product for you.
Unitrends has helped us cut down the time that it takes to restore a server to its original configuration.
Iinstant recovery (allows a spin-up of your image as a VM on the appliance).
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.
In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the solution.
The only problem with the solution is that when I change the drive capacity, it has to do a full backup. It's a problem when I have five servers to backup. When I only want to change the size of the drive, I have to do a full backup that can take one week.
It should be easier to switch between backup locations. We have multiple data storage locations and sometimes one of those storages need to be replaced. It would be nice if they made it easier to reconfigure the backup configuration.
Every time I change the disc, I have to do a full backup.
We cannot restore each user's mailbox. Each user's mailbox should be independently restorable. Also, this solution is very slow. If you select all of the servers, it runs for a long time... It needs to be faster. Finally, If anything happens to one server we should be able to switch to another server.
If the interface could be less complex, it is would be great.
There are some questions as to how safely they are storing backup data.
The amount of updates which are being released. Updates should be limited to two or three a year, focusing more on quality instead of a rushed bug release.
No appliance update notifications.
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.
Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options.
We only have the maintenance of three standard UDP licenses. Each license is 50 Euro. There are some additional costs for the storage and software but it has nothing to do with the UDP.
I do not work with the pricing or licensing issues of the solution for our organization.
You should be aware how much the monthly costs are to use, what the initial costs for hardware are, and what the options to expand are, if needed.
