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