Cons
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.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.

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.There have been issues with performance and some features.DDBoost.Setup implementation.

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.If budget allows using the per socket license and not the agent based with per GB counter for Dedup is the way to go.

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.Licensing was very expensive and did not scale well if needed to move between license models.
