It's an enterprise product. It's a stable product. We have good support. Almost all databases are in the scope.
Backup and archive with a single window, with a single backup job. You only need to type "c".
Great archive feature, OnePass, for the file system and Exchange servers.
A very stable and scalable platform (you can backup/restore/protect a couple of MBs or hundred of TBs as well from the same console/platform).
One-Pass (Archive) DataBase backup (Online Backup and Granular level restore), VM backup and restore.
Well documented SQL views and customizable reports, together with scripts and workflows provides ability to automate processes and ensure proper controls are in place.
The cloud integration is a massive win for us, giving us a single backup service for all of our on-premise and cloud systems.
It has reduced our backup time and simplified our backup processes across all the servers.
The compression, because it drastically reduces the disk space.
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.
Reduce the complexity for better understanding of the reports. There are a lot of variables in which you can get confused while elaborating on reports.
Mostly controls, visibility, cost allocation.
The new HTML5-based management portals are very nice, but do not yet have all of the features of the Java-based client.
Make sure you check your backups on a regular basis. Backups do get missed with this tool, for whatever reason.
I would like to see the pieces that they have put in the web only to be put into the thick client sitting on the desktop client.
The way the filtering goes, if you filter on your view, there is no indication that you have made a selection.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing could be better explained. Sometimes, it's unclear what features are available in different licensing models.
New licensing is easy and affordable.
There is now a subscription based licence option that, depending on your environment, could offer a more efficient method to licence the solution if you are OPEX cost driven rather than CAPEX.
If budget allows using the per socket license and not the agent based with per GB counter for Dedup is the way to go.
The product's pricing is a good value. They have a straightforward licensing model.
