Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery is well suited for our environment, which has a huge number of different Operating Systems that need protection. One less appropriate scenario for Commvault is trying to improve as a DATA mover instead of just a backup/restore/DR. CommVault has all our data, but the tools to manage data such as legal searches and migration of VMware is lacking--it's there, but other tools do a much better job. If Commvault is going to become a leader in DATA and not just backup/restore, they need to really improve these data tools to be industry leaders, not just an add-on to backup.

I can't think of scenarios it would be less appropriate or suited for, but it is well suited for an organization looking to keep their files in a safe environment with version tracking and audit trails. That is pretty much any organization in this day and age. Computers are great but hardware breaks down intermittently so knowing you have your files in a secure location that won't ever fail is fantastic

Pros

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery provides complete auditing. Having worked with many products in the past, most fell short on reporting. In particular reporting on restores. Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery provides detailed information on operations that were performed, the account performing the operation and where was the data placed.
  • The flexibility of the product allows it to be more of a framework than a rigid application. By leveraging vendor specific API's, such as NetApp SnapVault/SnapMirror access, stronger integration and a more reliable service is produced. The workflow functionality and ability to utilize personal scripts helps administrators perform developer functions.
  • Support for aging technologies is a challenge for any large institution. Maintaining the ability to support old solutions, even in a limited capacity, is more desirable than bringing in a secondary solution or not support it at all.

  • Restoring users and deleted files from both Cloud and desktop applications, with only a few button click.
  • The InSync dashboard allows me to see where all my assets are and when their last backups occurred.
  • The installation process was VERY easy. So getting everyone up and running was painless.
Marty Goldstein | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Additional workflow template and not so much the canned reports that comes with it.
  • Pricing, it does get pricey when you start adding new features not purchased before hand.
  • Licensing structure, should be more flexible especially in for an enterprise level customers.

  • As part of the initial setup, we had a few issues surrounding large numbers of accounts being backed up at the same time. This was more a Microsoft issue than anything, and with help from support, we resolved the issue.
  • The email reports can be a little useless on occasion. For example, I don't need an email every day with a failed backup report if there are no failures.
  • Again with email, the weekly backup report has so much information in it that the email sometimes fails to load. A simple email with a link to click would be better.

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.

They product is built very well with all the features and support to different types of data but as an end user it is not simple to explore the server. Not easy to setup the features and make it operational as compared to the other competitor in the market.

Aside from Druva taking away the Share feature just to push folks to the cloud, it's perfect for what it does and should have just continued to grow not have clueless management decide they wanted to migrate the on-premise customers to the cloud version and offer the share tool for them, this was just wrong and remains wrong.

We get quick response to our queries, and the documentation is more complete and accurate that I expected. The really hard problems can take a while, but Commvault does not hesitate to connect the end-user with the engineering and development teams to solve those problems. They also do not seem to have the tendency that you see in many vendors to close the case as fast as possible (to make the closure stats better) even when you do not yet have the full answer that you need. They keep at it until every issue and question has been explored.

Most issues I have can be solved without opening a ticket. But if I need to get in touch with a support agent, I can open a chat request and within minutes have a tech on the end assisting me. The few tickets I had to open were resolved on the first call.

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.

In consultation with a Druva support person we configured a few policies first for several groups of users. Once that was done it was easy to add users and generate emails that contained links and instructions to download/install the app. Once installed, the app applied the appropriate policy and the sync of data began. We had 40 or so devices to protect, and in a week or less they were all protected. The delays usually were on the part of the user who needed to schedule some time (15-30 minutes at most) to accept the invitation and download/install the app.

Alternatives Considered

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

The Ministry’s previous backup environment was comprised of Veeam, BackupExec, and Acronis solutions, which were complex and time-consuming to manage. The team turned to IT partner Fractal Dimension to help it select and deploy a single solution that could simplify protection for its disparate environment.

After analyzing its requirements, a local partner suggested Commvault as a cost-effective, comprehensive, and flexible data management solution. They demonstrated that the Commvault solution would suit our needs and reduce ongoing management costs.
Vladan Kojanic | TrustRadius Reviewer

My biggest requirement for looking at Data Protection as a Service is security, both in transit and at rest. Druva inSync offers one of the best security models where if a key is chance it does not affect the current session. Furthermore, we did not see the same dedupe savings with other services.

Return on Investment

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • The ease of use and reliability of Commvault have enabled us to support the entire environment with less personnel than other products. We can support hundreds of clients and 500TB of protected systems with a single person.
  • Their per TB pricing can get rather expensive often forcing you into an agent based pricing model and that can be less that ideal to mange.
Keith Luken | TrustRadius Reviewer

Druva inSync

  • Anytime a user does his/her own restore it has saved his or her own time in not having to redo the lost changes made and it doesn't involve IT staff to do a restore for them or to try looking for or recovering the lost/deleted/corrupted file. This savings in money and time spent is apparent, numerous and possibly priceless.
  • Druva is an affordable product; it's per user cost is acceptable and is affordable for even small businesses
