407,845 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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 platforms
The 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.
It's very simple to configure which is very useful. It's not complex to configure it.
The fact that Azure Backup is integrated is one of its biggest advantages.
One of the most valuable features is security and connectivity to the data.
The backup features are very useful.
The storage backup is very efficient.
This solution allows me to restore either the VM or the data, depending on what is needed.
It is very capable of scaling and very good for heterogeneous environments.
We have good data backup coverage.
The most valuable feature is that the backup and restoring process is very fast.
Compared to a homemade installation, this appliance is very stable.
We rarely need their help. I would give their technical support an 8.5 out of ten. We are satisfied.
They are a large company with good best practices, and they give good support.
The intelligent policies feature is used in order to protect the VMware infrastructure. One of the things that makes a big difference for our company is the usage of these intelligence policies. The system automatically provides extra protection for any VMware server application or service. From a backup administrator's point of view, this is what we call peace of mind. It reduces the workload and therefore reduces resources needed from the company.
The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can be used in many different kinds of systems.
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.
To make it a ten, it should have the ability to extend the retention and to perform a copy of the data outside of the subscription - with no additional costs.
In the next release, I would like to see the ability to back up to different cloud providers.
We would like to see some kind of notification given to the user that a file was not synchronized well or what may have happened.
The solution is still in its infancy; it's not a mature product yet.
The support for Office365 backup is atrocious and is something that has to be improved.
The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better.
I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB.
This solution has to have better integration with the cloud, as well as with other solutions such as Business Intelligence products.
We had some problems with the backup of the physical server.
The scalability isn't great. Every time you want to add storage, you can't just add a little bit, you need to add a lot.
They need to make the licensing more clear. They should give all of the licensing details for the portals and be more clear. I have accidentally purchased the incorrect license because it's not clear.
I would like to see a product that requires less expertise to manage it.
The only drawback for NetBackup, and of course for Veritas, is that they have stuck to the same environment and to the same UI - User Interface. This needs to be improved in future releases. It needs to be more dynamic.
Technical support for this solution needs to be improved.
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.
Support payment works by the level of partnership and the number of shares.
The pricing of this solution is good, and it is one of the easiest things that you can sell Azure with.
The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future.
It costs more to license support for this solution, compared to others.
The price of this solution is very high compared to other solutions.
The licensing costs are approximately 150,00 Saudi Riyals.
The licensing costs for this solution are very high.
