For every company which is too big for MailStore. MailStore is much cheaper and easier...so mostly enough for 5 to 20 people companies. But for all bigger companies with 200 plus users it is the right solution. Please be sure, that it is not easy to get it running. But when it runs, it is mostly stable.

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.

Pros

Barracuda Message Archiver

  • Archiving with journaling.

  • Stubbing.
Michael Bayer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Commvault is the Swiss Army knife for data protection in an Enterprise environment. You name the environment and Commvvault has something to protect it. Very helpful in this on-prem/off-prem world that is developing into a DevOps world.
  • Improves our Disaster Recovery
  • Starting to utilize for data migration for VMware in places where Zerto is too expensive

Cons

Barracuda Message Archiver

  • In Archiving there should be a "Header only" download for users with offline stores.
  • Single sign-on in WebClient.
  • Single sign-on in Outlook Add-In.
  • More performance to the boxes.
Michael Bayer | 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.

The product is good but for this specific product there are often some technical problems. Mostly support in Vienna can solve them soon. The development is very, very slow. I have asked for some changes. They gave the okay to make it with a feature request...but 3 years later there is still no code for my problems. Not even one feature request was done.

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.

The support in Vienna is very, very great. They are fast and can support almost all problems by themselves. Especially Mr. Michael Holzer is a very high specialist and you can ask him almost everything. Just write a mail to emeasupport and you will be sure, that some minutes or hours later you will get a kind and professional call.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Barracuda Message Archiver

For us it is important that it is stable. Because of this we thought it is a good idea to buy a clustered station. Barracuda can do this and we bought 2 1050 boxes and linked them. At the end the price was also okay...we also evaluated Symantec and at the end both were candidates but Barracuda made better price.
Michael Bayer | 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.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Message Archiver

  • Long term archiving is good.
  • Integrating of many PSTs cost extra money for PST Enterprise. This should be included.
Michael Bayer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery has allowed us to sunset several specialized products that are no longer needed. These application-specific backup solutions were necessary for certification. Now that Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery provides the same protection, consolidation was an easy decision.
  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery was able to provide like-kind replacements for in-house solutions. Custom backup solution functionality could be mirrored in Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery while gaining the management layer for auditing, reporting, monitoring and trending.
