We are a partner for Commvault and our role is to implement the solution for our customers. Our customers in Egypt are in the banking and financial sector. They use Commvault to back up their data. We help in sizing the workload of the customer, designing the solution and implementing it. We also support the customer if they face any issues. We have a hybrid implementation. The first target for the backup is on-premises and the offsite backup is on Azure cloud.
We are a systems integrator and we sell Commvault to our customers. One of our customers has Oracle Cloud and we needed to create a backup for that. Only two solutions can do that, Commvault and Veritas. Our customer compared Commvault and Veritas by doing a PoC of each. We displayed the features of each one and the customer chose Commvault. We have another customer with a different environment. They have virtualization and they have a physical infrastructure and many operating systems and environments. They compared different backup solutions like Commvault, Veeam, and Veritas, and Commvault was the only solution that could cover all the operating systems and the whole virtual and physical environment. Another customer is in the petroleum sector. They have different sites and they need replication between the sites and they also need to back up their main sites and their remote sites. Commvault is one of the best solutions for this scenario.
Right now we are using on-premise and cloud backups. We run 300 to 400 jobs per day.
We are mainly using it for backing up our VMware environment, some file servers, and some SQL databases. We also use it for some replication.
We use it in the most traditional way: for backup and restore. We don't use it for all the other things that are also possible with it because we are quite a big company. We have all the specific tools we need for specific purposes. We tested Commvault in the past for archiving, but in those days it was not really stable yet. So we selected other solutions for that. We use Commvault on everything. We are using it in our own data centers but also in the cloud. We use Azure for most things, but we also are working on testing some things on AWS.
Commvault is our primary solution for all backup and recovery; for index, for analytics, for everything.
We use it to backup and protect our virtual environments. We do Active Directory, SQL, file server, and some application levels backups. We do Office 365 and SharePoint backups too. We back up everything locally first, then store it in the cloud.
We use it for backup as a service for our tenants. We are service providers. We host Commvault partially on our cloud and we also use some physical servers for a part of the Commvault infrastructure.
How we implement this solution in a government institution is a little tricky; it's more closed. One of our most important use cases is how we protect and back up documents and files from users outside of our building because we must follow security standards. We use only HTTPS protocols, a special proxy server, etc.
We use it to back up NetApp shares, servers, and virtual servers. We also use it for Active Directory and databases. We used to use it to back up Exchange servers, but we're moving that to the cloud. It has a lot of features but we mostly use it to back up and recover stuff.
This solution is mainly used for virtualization and Oracle data protection. The customers I work with use it to protect their machines and active databases.
Our primary use case is for backing up the .NES file system. I backup VMware and Windows cloud servers. It's deployed on-prem.
Our primary use case for Commvault is to archive our files. It allows us to move images from temporary storage to permanent storage. Commvault moves everything from the source to the destination, with categorization of the image archive.
We are using this solution to backup our public and private cloud data. It is very compatible with all backup types and environments. It backs up our databases, as well as other systems such as email and files. We are using a KVM system in our cloud, and this solution works very well with it.
We provide our clients with this solution. Most of my customers use Commvault as a backup solution only.
For the past five years, I was part of a big team as a solution architect that was designing Commvault as a solution for different connector projects and enterprise sectors within the region: the Middle East, North Africa, and so on. Commvault is unique in the backup and recovery category. It has many features. If you are using the Commvault as a backup, you don't need any additional software to have an archiving solution. While with other products, you do. We use Commvault for backup, recovery, and archiving.
It's for the file system backup, reel backup, and databases. We have been using the solution for four years.
We have it in our data center, and it's primarily used for our servers. We take backups of the data to protect ourselves. If by mistake we delete some data from the primary storage, we can restore the data from the backup. For the last six months, we have been providing a graphical user interface for our customers for Commvault so they can, themselves, restore files and folders.
