We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The price could perhaps be lower as well."
"Our cost is around $20,000 per month. The previous year, it was around $30,000 per month. It now costs less because Commvault changed the licensing type for providers."
"Our yearly cost is around €20,000... The cost is based on the number of users and the amount of data. They sell it per terabyte."
"There is a bit of cost involved with signing up the entire solution. It's not a cheap solution."
"Commvault licensing is a perpetual license so only the support is being renewed yearly."
"The complete license gives us options for all the features. Commvault does not license based on storage or the management components. It can integrate with any storage vendor. That means that when we are out of storage and need more, we can integrate without additional licensing. In my opinion, Commvault needs to reduce the licensing cost by 20 to 40 percent to make it cost-efficient."
"We went from Veritas NetBackup to Commvault. We switched due to upfront licensing and costs. We have more visibility into what we're actually purchasing. It seemed like, overall, the cost of Commvault was cheaper."
"It is cheaper than Veeam."
"The price of this solution is on the expensive side."
"The cost of SRM is a little bit high, especially for smaller companies."
"The cost of SRM is on par with market rates."
"The licensing costs are increasing."
"It is about $3,000 a year for the 25 pack. The package gives you the ability to protect up to 25 virtual machines."
