Find out what your peers are saying about Commvault vs. Veeam Backup & Replication and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
371,917 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:
It's very stable.
We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it.
It's the leader in backup and archiving.
It is much more scalable and flexible than everything else in the market.
In the VM, we have Live Recovery, Live Mount, and Live Sync.
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.
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".
The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.
The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.
Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.
Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.
Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.
Very flexible, all-in-one solution.
We get a lot of features with Veeam and we are happy to use this solution. After shutdown, the servers here automatically turn off and Veeam is keeping up all this. It's tension free work.
It has helped us transfer the solution in two days instead of working for a minimum of one week to ten days.
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.
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 would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.
It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there.
Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.
Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.
One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.
Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.
Needs better integration with cloud service providers.
We try to compare Veeam with other solutions because we are the operations. Then we can give the answers for improvement which is the specific additional system features that other solutions provide.
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.
The price of Veeam is much lower than the IBM solution.
We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.
The product is competitively priced.
The pricing is good and affordable.
The price is slightly higher than its competitors.
The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill.
I would suggest to others that they buy the full license when purchasing this solution.
Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.
