Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It's the leader in backup and archiving.""It's very stable.""It's a complete software that can protect all the main applications. Perhaps that's the feature I like most. The integration with the NetApp and other apps is also very nice.""We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it.""The solution provides us with a single platform to move, manage, and recover our data across on-premise locations. Some of the guys have been using it to move a virtual machine from VMware to the Microsoft solution, Hyper-V. They back it up and then they restore to the different virtual machine provider, and that works great.""The multi-tenancy is the most valuable feature for us because it's the only software that is fully multi-tenant and that has all the features we need to provide to all our tenants. It provides us with advanced features for MySQL and Oracle, among other platforms""The most valuable feature is sharing data sets like they're in a private cloud. We call it our "private cloud" because we can share anything that is inside our backup set with our colleagues or with other people, and yet, everything is still in Belgrade, in Serbia. It's not somewhere else on cloud servers. Everything is in our environment.""I'm a big fan of the reporting. You can build your own reports; it's very customizable. You can have individual reports going to groups of people or individuals. You can have them go out multiple times a day. It's basically a free-for-all as far as reporting goes. If anybody wants a specific job report every day, you can build it, schedule it, and have it go out and never touched it again. It's pretty nice."

"The administration and management integrate with multiple solutions, not just with one or two environments, even if they're not VMware products.""The most valuable features are the fast replication and recovery of data.""The deployment is quite simple. Users are generally happy because of the familiarity they have with the features. The solution offers good transparency for the end-user.""The solution is already far more advanced than our customers require. It offers advanced scripting and automation pre-testing to support the custom library and custom tasks.""While there are some complexities, Veeam tries to keep the product simple and offers a good knowledge base. It's quite structured, so you can easily take one subject and learn about it simply by reading through the documentation.""The stability and restore options on the solution are very good.""the interface is the most valuable feature and for the client it's security.""This solution works really well and it is simple to deploy."

"It has enabled DR protection for virtual appliances with minimal administrator time.""The ability to fully test your entire environment without actually performing a failover is invaluable.""Implementing this solution has given us sandboxing and the ability to move VMs.""We now have the ability to replicate critical data to a secure, off-site location that can be brought back in seconds if needed.""The ability to have a RPO of seconds has enabled us to restore data to just before an incident has occurred, which certainly saves a lot of time and money.""The ability to perform DR testing to ensure data integrity is critical.""I really like how you can test the failover as often as you need.""The ease of failover and test environments has proven invaluable."

Cons
"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.""The back of virtual machines needs improvement. I know they're working on it. They're always doing new things but I think they still have a little bit more to do.""I think the one thing that could be improved is the customer experience. The interface should be more user friendly.""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.""Just to keep it running is time-consuming. There are five people on my team. Commvault was supposed to be one of the less time-consuming solutions, but in reality it takes 60 percent of our time just to keep it running, and that's not even fine-tuning it; that's just to keep it running.""There is room for improvement in its user interface and web console, called Command Center. They are improving it every year so if they continue in that direction, I think it will be a very reliable console.""They can always improve the interface design to make it easier. Sometimes, you need to click two or three times to do something. They should look at what tabs are used most and make them more accessible, to cut the time it takes to get to that information.""Command Center definitely gives us a complete view of our data. But finding some of the granular, very small items that we sometimes have to find, such as auxiliary copies for tapes, I still find that it's easier to navigate and, sometimes, only possible to find them using the CommCell tool."

"We were interested in investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in VMware. VMware right now is one of the biggest solutions in the world, in terms of the IT environment. But for Cloud Connect it's not. I think they need the cloud version to reach more customers, to enable the cloud version to be used by more people.""The security of encrypted data could be better.""It would be helpful if the enterprise edition was more complete. It's not as complete as the enterprise plus edition is. For instance, in the enterprise version, we can only use one accelerator with the cloud provider. It means if I have my Cloud Connect, I cannot connect another site of mine with another cloud connect and use an accelerator of Veeam. They should change this.""The pricing is much higher than what our clients expect it to be.""The solution should allow for interfacing with other public cloud vendors. They could work to build something around that concept.""We need the solution to offer IT storage.""Pricing could be improved and I also think archiving could be improved.""The biggest thing that Cloud Connect needs is native deduplication."

More Veeam Cloud Connect Cons »

"It would be helpful if the reports can be generated periodically, on a schedule.""There needs to be more flexibility in the licensing.""The backup functions are in need of improvement.""The email alerts can be excessive, so better control over frequency or resolution may be a worthwhile improvement.""We have had issues with licensing, where the license we've been given by Zerto support doesn't include VSS replication, which was a pain at the time.""Increased granularity in how long to keep the journal would be nice.""I think Zerto could do better with size planning because it would be nice to analyze a server for a week and give an estimate on sizing the Journal.""I would like to see better notifications when the sync is off for an extended length of time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"I think that this is one of the most cost-effective solutions.""The licensing fee is on a monthly basis.""We are looking into how we can extend the license of this product."

More Veeam Cloud Connect Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The solution is very cost-effective and very easy to set-up but does not compromise on features.""While we find the twenty-five VM license somewhat inflexible, the actual setup costs are minimal as the product is so easy to install.""You are getting what you pay for, as this is a solution that requires minimal management after it is configured.""We found that in an event that was massive enough to cause an entire cluster to go offline we would be happy with our core services up and running.""The cost is not dirt cheap but also is not terrible.""The cost per VM is a bit high.""You need to figure out how many critical servers and applications you have in your environment so you will know how many Zerto licenses to buy.""Zerto is not cheap but is an invaluable asset."
