Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Commvault can actually come in and assist you with aspects of the implementation - and they are quite helpful.""The solution is easy to use and the duplication is quite good.""It is easy to use and stable. It delivers what has been promised. When it says it can do something, it can actually do it, as opposed to some of its competitors.""Scalability, as well as stability, are a couple of important parts of this solution.""Commvault's Command Center is one of the best solutions out there. You can rely on Commvault solutions for the most complex and most demanding environments.""Commvault's many features can be explored to get more value from more solutions.""The recovery features are useful. It is easy to recover data. If something happens, we can easily recover data. We have faced ransomware issues twice, and we recovered because of Commvault.""Commvault helps to ensure broad coverage with the discovery of unprotected workloads. This is important. From the moment that we set it up, we mostly have customers telling us what they need to back up. Then, you can list the machines that are not yet protected. Sometimes, we can see that they are unaware of this, and say, "We didn't know that those servers were not protected yet," or "We did not back them up yet.""

"I like the incremental backups and their failover.""Veeam has a "next, next, finish" installer, and the overall deployment is straightforward. The deployment is easy because Veeam is compatible with all our VMware services and VMs. Veeam Backup and Veeam ONE are integrated into vCenter or vSphere site deployments, so we don't need to deploy each server one by one.""The most valuable feature is the ability to pick up individual files.""The initial setup and deployment are easy. It's straightforward.""Veeam Agent for Linux's most valuable feature is the compatibility with virtual machines, such as VMware."

Cons
"The only problem is that some of what we snap most of is the VMs. We found about 10% of the VMs that we can't snap because they're too interactive. It actually causes the application to crash.""It would be a bit unfair to say that it's complex, due to the fact that it supports so many different workloads, however, if there's anything that is a bit of a shortcoming, then it's the fact that there's a bit of complexity involved when dealing with the product.""Could be easier to implement.""There are two ways to use it and I prefer the web-based one over the app. I wish they were a little bit more matched in what they offer because the features aren't as available in the web-based interface as they are in the app.""The main area for improvement is that we sometimes experience negative effects from their updates. If they had a larger test area for their updates, that would help.""I would assess the Command Center as a very useful but sometimes difficult tool. It is multipurpose. It has all the features of logging and monitoring, especially for the actual setup. For us, it is easy because we work daily with it, but for customers who only use it once a week, they sometimes have some difficulties. Command Center is not user-friendly for beginners.""The product could be more convenient in terms of working with different solutions and having more integration between the different products in the market.""Commvault is a rich system that might scare somebody the first time they see it because it feels so huge."

More Commvault Complete Data Protection Cons →

"The integration needs improvement.""The price of Veeam Agent for Linux could be reduced.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.""They could be more customer-friendly."

    Overview

    Commvault® Complete Data Protection is a data protection and information management solution that runs on a single platform with a unified code base. Commvault enables companies worldwide to protect, access, and use all their data, anywhere and anytime, turning data into a powerful strategic asset. Commvault provides the resources and expertise to accelerate the return to normal business operations after a data loss event or an attack.

    After installing the Commvault software, the data is processed by the agent software on client computers and backed up through the “MediaAgent” (Commvault’s data manager) to a hard disk or to cloud storage. All activity in the environment is backed up by a centralized server. Commvault users can then access the protected data using web browsers from desktop or mobile devices. The Commvault software is available across both cloud and on-premises environments.

    Commvault Complete Data Protection Features:

    With Commvault, users can easily back up, restore, archive, replicate, transfer, and search data. Commvault offers its customers:

    • Data protection and security: Commvault protects and rapidly recovers data from ransomware attacks and other security breaches.
    • Data transformation: Commvault effectively moves and repurposes data across environments, enabling flexible data usage for management, testing, and other IT needs.
    • Data insights: Commvault provides its users with insights that can be used to apply machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize and automate IT processes. Data insights can be applied to data protection to mitigate security breaches.
    • Manageable data environment: Commvault Command Center offers a dashboard for management of the entire data environment. Users can identify data for protection, monitor backups and restorations, and view analytics. Saved configurations and procedures reduce the load on IT staff.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Commvault stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Some of the major ones are its backup, recovery, and data protection features as well as its centralized management.

    Sheron B. a systems engineer at PAREXEL International Corporation writes, “I like that you have complete hooks into and total control of your data. The data is well-protected. It doesn't age off until it's copied. That's a big feature right there. When you reach the end of your retention, it does not expire until the secondary copy is completed. That allows you to hold onto data that otherwise would have aged off by retention. I like that feature. It's hard to just delete or lose data using the Commvault platform.

    PeerSpot users note the effectiveness of Commvault. An engineer at a tech services company writes, "When it comes to recovery, Commvault is undeniably one of the best technologies out there. It's got all the different granularity levels that a business requires to get your information back to production. For example, we have their commission discovery, individual items recovery, mailbox recovery, databases, and different tables. Some databases can be recovered individually. This level of granularity enables us to get the most value out of the product."
