Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

CommVault

Commvault's strength lies in its robustness and flexibility. It can protect workloads on many different platforms. The UI while intimidating is fairly quick to learn once you understand basic concepts and their terminology. There are very few products that can scale up into the largest enterprises and go low to medium sized businesses and Commvault is clearly one of them. Their SMB business has been slow due to heavy competition especially in VMware centric shops where Veeam has been a strong competitor, but Commvault quickly wins in any environment with more than a few dozen VMs or that has anything other than pure VMware of Hyper-V. Commvault really needs a smaller SQL express like build that supports say a very small SMB where Veeam is easier to set up and use, but far less space efficient on the backups. Commvault's support organization has had its ups and downs, but the last few years has been very solid. Unless you need a true HSM based solution then Comvmault is hard to beat. TSM is the better HSM based product for now, but I would not put it past Commvault to try and one up TSM over the years. We backed up over 500TB across 200+ locations and our main data center and can't think of a product that would have been any easier or more reliable to use. Version 11 is the version that is really a true Enterprise ready deduplication and protection system.

CommVault

  • Consistency - Commvault is not like other backup solutions which need countless hours of engineer time to babysit and troubleshoot. It just works!
  • Support - Commvault has an excellent team of support engineers when you need them the most. They resolve the issue right away which is nice.
  • Cloud Support - CommVault has a lot of support and ability to back up the data to the cloud. They even offer encryption backups to the cloud as well.

Cons

Able2Extract Professional

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

CommVault

  • Does not have any migration tools if a customer is migrating from a non-CommVault backup tool to CommVault.

Not a simple solution to use and one with a lexicon and vocabulary you will need to be familiar with in order to use the product to its potential.

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

We initially compared only the two solutions, since at the time (2008) were the only two companies to provide NDMP support for NetApp (on the QVL at least). We selected CommVault since it did that and showed a superior approach to email compliance. Server backup was usually be done the same by everyone.

Return on Investment

Able2Extract Professional

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.

CommVault

  • The IT ROI, especially in our law enforcement environment has been extremely beneficial. The time it takes for FOI requests for email have been cut down to at least half.
  • The management servers are difficult to host on virtual servers due to storage requirements, so this impact of limited data center space is less beneficial.
  • I usually only have to contact support about 2 or 3 times a year at most, so IT is save the time of having to troubleshoot with support.
