Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
If you have a problem with your primary site and can't access your primary database, you can continue working with the database that you have as standby on the other site, by changing its role to primary.
Another valuable feature is the possibility of backing up the database from the standby database instead of the primary database, to avoid backup process overhead in the primary system.
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.
I think it would be great to have a graphical interface assistant (like DBCA, ASMCA, NETCA, etc.) for initial configuration, monitoring, configuring Oracle Data Guard Broker and all the Data Guard Broker commands, without needing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control installed.
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.
Oracle Data Guard is a feature available only in Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, and is available for extra cost.
