That is the main benefit for us.It integrates well with calendar, scheduling, etc. It's easy for employees to make meetings and plan their agendas.

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.

I think that improvements should be made in creating greater abilities for Microsoft Exchange in terms of Reasearch and Development.In terms of probability, every now and then there are changes coming and going. The changes are not that frequent because every month they got updates back, so that is an issue.Deployment should become a bit easier, the process is a bit complicated. You have to have done it one or two times before you get it right. The first time you do it, it won't be perfect. There are a lot of complications compared to Gmail For Business, which is a bit easier when it comes to configuration.

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.

They are flexible when it comes to pricing, unlike most of the other vendors I have dealt with.
