Actifio Enterprise

Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

Commvault works well in a large environments with a variety of client types and data classes. With its policy-based configurations, it makes administration of large environments easier when configuring storage and retention, copies, schedules, client configs, etc. Commvault also backs up just about everything you can think of, and works with almost all storage and compute platforms, so there are rarely any cases where Commvault cannot accommodate.

Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • For database restores, it has to restore the entire database in order to recover just one table.
  • Backups of virtual machines with direct attached storage is difficult.
  • I wish it covered cloud assets more thoroughly, like AWS ELBs and Security Groups.

It is serving it's purpose and for companies that have a smaller IT staff, it is not time consuming to manage. Support for the product when needed has been very good and they are responsive when tickets are opened for support. The product is scalable so as we grow we can easily increase the resources as needed on the backend.

Have a interface very user friendly. You do not need a lot of training, or any formal training really, to get up and going and use nearly all of the functionality of the product. This facilitates the post-implementation company as it reduces costs with backup specialists and any trained analyst can take care of its infrastructure. One negative point is not all the options and features are in the HTML view.

I would rate Commvault's support as an 'average' support.Now that we have a very experienced guy working with Commvault, most of the time we can fix or do anything by ourselves.We had some issues with their support taking a really long time to respond and fix some issues in the past.In most cases we ended up appealing to the community, other peers, or Commvault's SE team.

Plan well and make sure you collect all the required information and details before going for implementation. Organize it in step by step or break the setup into different modules to make it simple.

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.
Peter Dawe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

Both of these products work very well and are very simple. We continue to use Commvault [Complete Backup & Recovery] because of how it integrates with our tape library and the simplicity of how it works. Rather than have to rip and replace just to save a few dollars, potentially, we know this works and we know that we don't have to make any changes to continue to have reliable backups.
