Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

In my experience, Commvault is best designed for large enterprises with sparse or segmented data deployments. If all of your data is similar, and sitting in one data center or cloud storage solution, it isn't cost-effective. In a word, overkill. I had a client that was looking for a backup solution for unstructured data in separate and air-gapped data sources. My cCmmvault rep could not offer a solution that was cost-effective and did not require multiple copies of the data, so storage made the solution nonscalable or cost-effective.

Rubrik

It is by far the easiest and well thought out backup solution I've encountered. If you have requirements to archive into AWS, Azure, or GCP, it is extremely easy to configure. You will be up and archiving in minutes. The SLA based job scheduling is very intuitive. The only negative or less appropriate usage I can think of would be the instantiation piece. It takes several hours to instantiate one VM to a cloud environment. This could be our lack of bandwidth, but it is only feasible for a long term DR scenario.

Pros

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • You can do backups of your servers, PC, and virtual environments in just one console.
  • The policy setup is very granular, so you can do almost whatever you need.
  • The compression and duplication really save you a lot storage space, which means less hardware.
  • The backup time are really good, so the maintenance window for each backup is fast.

Rubrik

  • Simplified backup. Rubrik integrates well with modern data-center technologies. Rubrik backups are SLA-based, and you can apply SLAs to different levels of your infrastructure, e.g. from granular VM-based assignments to covering whole site with few clicks.
  • Simplified restore. Easy to use interface allows for delegation of restores to any user group.
  • Simplified backup to cloud makes replacing outdated backup targets, such as tape libraries, an easy task.
  • Simplified DR to cloud. In addition to the ability to mount restored virtual machines from the Rubrik appliances itself, Rubrik allows you to spin up backed up to the cloud instances in Azure cloud.

Cons

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • The management console still uses Java and often has compatibility issues. I would dump java in favor or a HTML5 web console.
  • CommVault is a huge solution capable of managing the most complex environments. It could benefit from some simplification and wizards to make it more approachable to smaller IT shops.
Daniel Hereford profile photo

Rubrik

  • I would like to have the ability to set expiration dates for relics. When VMs are deleted, the backups (relics) require manual intervention to remove, and I may not want them removed right away.
  • Integration of multiple clusters into a single dashboard.
  • I'd like to see more granular control of SLA retentions.

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.

Rubrik has a simple to use interface and day to day management is very simple yet it doesn't sacrifice flexibility. Expanding capacity as data grows is very easy and does not require downtime. Upgrading is simple and efficient. Setup and configuration are straight forward.

The cooperation with the support team so far has been excellent. We will be informed on every problem. The first line will help very soon after the ticket is opened. They always meet the appointment. Every problem is solved as soon as possible. When talking with the support team, they immediately indicated that they had the knowledge, and knew where to look. If the problem goes beyond their help frame, the second aid level is immediately activated, the case is raised to a higher level and another call/help meeting is scheduled immediately. The nice thing about this company is that you can follow every ticket online.

I have had nothing but great service from Rubrik's support. The support tunnel option is great as they can connect without the need for WebEx or JoinMe to work on your cluster. They are always willing to perform upgrades even though upgrading is super easy for the customer, but some would prefer support to do them.

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

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

IBM TSM has Commvault beat in true HSM, but TSM is so complex to mange and run and is probably a tad lighter on resources, but not enough to warrant using it. NetBackup was the speed king for years, but after Symantec virtually abandoned the product their are years behind in innovation. The NetBackup UI is ancient and the reporting is weak. Veeam has a very specific target audience and that is the purely virtualized SMB what does not have much to protect. Veeam's deduplication is barely works and their compression is just OK. Veeam underlying disk usage is very wasteful and can quickly add up, Commvault is far more space efficient for the backup target than any of the competitors that offer deduplication

Veeam is the closest to Rubrik but still cannot compare in its simplicity and success rates. The others just don't even compare, heck you have to have a PHD just to use CommVault

Return on Investment

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • With a successful DR test, Commvault has proven that our most critical systems could be recovered in a very short amount of time. Since these Tier One systems are the money makers, it is a relief to know they can be up and running within the SLA provided by the business.
  • With the large amount of client agents used for backups, we are backing up databases that we couldn't before with NetBackup. Right now, our environment is the most protected it has ever been.
  • Even though we have increased the amount of data we are backing up by a very large margin, the success rates have allowed us to work on other things than having to worry about backups not working. Productivity has certainly increased.

Rubrik

  • Increasing of service's request: old customers asked us backup service after they realized we were using Rubrik
  • New customers, came because of Rubrik, asked for new services
  • Old customers already using previous backup solution decided to leave the service since more expensive
  • Overall, ROI is positive
