The most important feature we've found is the Enscripts. That is one powerful feature that I, personally, love to use.It indexes much faster, and is more reflexive because of the Enscripts.Data Recovery: Its ability to repair damaged partitions and uncover hidden partitions from within the tool, and allow further analysis.The technical support is excellent.I like the processing feature on the product because it does everything at once, i.e, indexing, recovery, keyword searches, etc.It speeds up the process, so I can meet my deadlines.

Cons
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.The HTML interface is a remarkable improvement. However, there are still some features that are not available in that interface that are available in the Java console, but I'm sure that will come with time.I just wanted to compare the features, which are there in EMC NetWorker, which are not available in Commvault. We have things using Networker.

We have come across problems with the end-case. We could not find an email discovery type of module and there was not flexibility with the email.In the past, incident response time for tech support was slow.There were minor UI bugs.I would like to see a capability to ingest and absorb more data. That would be really good. It currently is lacking this function.Ease of use and learning curve need improvement.​Sometimes the application can take more time to complete the image processing or fail at the end of the process.​

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.Licensing could be better explained. Sometimes, it's unclear what features are available in different licensing models.
