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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Compared to other competitors and vendors the pricing is fair.""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.""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."

"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 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 licensing fees are between $8,000 and $10,000 per year.""IBM provides an open license policy, which is more like a gentlemen's agreement.""One can go with either a PVU licensing model or a capacity based licensing model. Either solution does not block the usage, if over used.""It is fairly reasonable as compared to other solutions in the market.""We have capacity licensing. We use the front end. The capacity licensing is pretty okay on the licensing price. I used to use the old PVU-based licensing in the early environment, but now we use capacity-based licensing."
