We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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".Cloud integration.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.

This is the best solution that I know of.It saves time for the backup needs of our organization.The most valuable feature is that it is basically a replica of our SAND data. We archive the SAND data for recovery, if there is an issue on the fence.It is essential. We can't do without it.Its most valuable features are flexibility and reliability.Logs are very easy to read, parse, and use for diagnostics.Ease of installing, configuring, upgrading, and troubleshooting.AIR and duplication, overall management and troubleshooting.

Cons
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.Training.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.Endpoint backup.

Endpoint backup capability is needed.The interface should be improved.I would advise not to use this tool. I think between the licensing issues and the older solution mentality it is not a great solution.Some of the hardware is out of support.It needs support for Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVMs).The product is not able to keep up with other competitors in the market.I have been involved in upgrades. They have not been straightforward. Some of them have required us to make changes to our architecture and production environment.The restore tool is not friendly to newcomers.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.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.

This is an affordable solutionThe licensing model is cost-prohibitive as you scale out.Acceptable if you need to implement it for larger environments, e.g. over 1000 clients. For smaller setups it might be too expensive.Pricing is pretty costly as compared to the other products but worth investing for the long term and high ROI.The software and license are very expensive.If you have a complex environment with dozens of different servers and apps, I recommend you look for TB licensing.So far I can only say that the license structure could be looked at to be aligned as either capacity-based or traditional.Smaller virtualized environments will want to stick to a traditional licensing model if possible. It will likely be cheaper, but it is a pain to manage all the individual licenses for each client.
