447,439 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:
"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."
"In the VM, we have Live Recovery, Live Mount, and Live Sync."
"It is much more scalable and flexible than everything else in the market."
"It's the leader in backup and archiving."
"It's very stable."
"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."
"We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it."
"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 initial setup is pretty straightforward, it's not complex."
"For regular backup and restore solutions, this product is fine."
"The product is very stable."
"The best part of this solution is that it just works."
"The most valuable features are compression and de-duplication."
"The fact that we can take the backup straight onto tape is the most valuable feature."
"This solution has improved our organization through better file and database recovery."
"The interface is easy to use."
"The archiving feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"Instead of taking three different backups of your systems, you're taking only one. You're able to crack that open and get what you need. The incident recovery, where it creates the VM and then you're running it, technically you're running it on Spectrum Protect. But then in the background, it's doing the storage motion and moving it off the Spectrum Protect back to your VMware environment. The users don't know the difference."
"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."
"We previously had difficulty with the support being foreign."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I think the one thing that could be improved is the customer experience. The interface should be more user friendly."
"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."
"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."
"The user interface, customer support, and the recovery time for the current customer query could use improvement."
"I would like to see better support for creating and working with archives."
"Sometimes we experience trouble with the backup transfer of the control files."
"The user interface needs to be improved."
"In the next version of the solution, I would like to see cloud support."
"We cannot take VMware backups for our banking data center environment."
"The deduplication must be perfect, and thus should be improved."
"Better integration with other tools and databases is needed."
"Although I am not a technical user, I would say the cloud integration features could be improved."
"Their support is lacking. I've talked to their developers and stuff in the last couple of weeks and they reassure me that some people have retired, and they're working on getting that bumped back up. But the support lacks a lot to be desired at this point."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Compared to other competitors and vendors the pricing is fair."
"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."
"The price could perhaps be lower as well."
"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."
"There is a bit of cost involved with signing up the entire solution. It's not a cheap solution."
"Commvault licensing is a perpetual license so only the support is being renewed yearly."
"The complete license gives us options for all the features. Commvault does not license based on storage or the management components. It can integrate with any storage vendor. That means that when we are out of storage and need more, we can integrate without additional licensing. In my opinion, Commvault needs to reduce the licensing cost by 20 to 40 percent to make it cost-efficient."
Information Not Available
"The pricing of the solution is high in comparison to other products on the market. For example, IBM and Symantec have less costly options."
"The licensing fees are on a yearly basis, which for us it is about R400,000 (approximately $27,000 USD)."
"The pricing is a little expensive for our current employer, so they want to move to a cheaper solution."
"The licensing fees are between $8,000 and $10,000 per year."
"IBM provides an open license policy, which is more like a gentlemen's agreement."
"One can go with either a PVU licensing model or a capacity based licensing model. Either solution does not block the usage, if over used."
"It is fairly reasonable as compared to other solutions in the market."
"We have capacity licensing. We use the front end. The capacity licensing is pretty okay on the licensing price. I used to use the old PVU-based licensing in the early environment, but now we use capacity-based licensing."
