Pros
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 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.

The reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear.Veritas NetBackup Automatic Image Replication and CloudCatalyst features allow me to replicate deduped backup images from one site to a remote site, as well as duplicating deduped images to the Cloud (i.e. AWS S3, etc.)We were evaluating other products and getting confused between Commvault and Veritas NetBackup. The one reason that we started with Veritas NetBackup is the pricing of the license. There's no other reason from a technical perspective or even operation or capability of the two software. The main reason we chose Veritas NetBackup was that in our use case it is more cost-effective.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.

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.

This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface.This product would be improved with the inclusion of a Sandbox feature like Veeam Sandbox.Improvements can be made to the service by providing better and more competitive ratios on data backups. The functionality for backups is there with Veritas, but I would like to see them optimize and enhance this feature more.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).

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.
