Pricing and Cost Advice
There is a bit of cost involved with signing up the entire solution. It's not a cheap solution.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.The price could perhaps be lower as well.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 licensing fees are on a yearly basis, which for us it is about R400,000 (approximately $27,000 USD).The pricing is a little expensive for our current employer, so they want to move to a cheaper solution.The pricing of the solution is high in comparison to other products on the market. For example, IBM and Symantec have less costly options.The product is low cost. It is very cool when we design it to using licensing based on post capacity.There may be an advantage to going with IBM in terms of pricing. They have a pay-as-you-grow policy, so there is no need to take one license for the entire datacenter. You can start with small licenses and then grow, and pay, as you use more.The different license models can give good benefits to the end customer.Regarding retro-compatibility of the product between versions, your data is always available and the ROI is unquestionable.The licensing is varied. If we have small environments (not many TB being managed) it is best to license by PVUs (depending on the number of cores of the machine). If we manage many TBs we look at licensing by capacity which allows us to use all the agents of the product.
