Highlights

Veeam Backup and Replication and Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery are both Data Center Backup Solutions built to archive and restore business data. Veeam Backup and Replication is most popular with mid-sized businesses, though it is also used by small and large enterprises due to its flexible pricing packages. Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery is most popular with large enterprises, though it is also used by mid-sized businesses as it is well equipped to handle complex technology environments.

Features

Veeam Backup and Replication and Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery both include essential data backup features such as disaster recovery, but they also have a few standout features that set them apart from each other.

Veeam Backup and Replication is simple to implement and use. Non-technical users will be able to use Veeam Backup and Replication to archive and restore information with ease. Veeam Backup and Replication also performs well when snapshotting virtual machines, allowing businesses to automate their backup process so minimal data is lost in a disaster. Lastly, Veeam Backup and Replication supports physical server backup.

Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery supports a wide variety of physical and virtual servers, including Windows, Linux, UNIX, and Oracle servers. Additionally, Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery allows for flexible backup and recovery, allowing users to restore data between virtual, physical, and cloud storage.

Limitations

Veeam Backup and Replication and Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery both offer essential data backup features, but they also have a few limitations that are important to consider.

Veeam Backup and Replication provides fast backup and archiving features, but restoration can be slow. For businesses that need to recover large amounts of data, Veeam Backup and Replication is significantly slower than other options.

Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery can be difficult to implement, particularly for more complex systems. Most businesses will need to take advantage of training and engineering services offered by Commvault.

Pricing

Veeam Backup and Replication is priced at $1,200.00 per year, though there are less feature-complete options available. The Veeam Backup Starter package is only $400.00 per year but lacks almost all analytics features included in the Veeam Backup and Replication Package. This package will be sufficient for users that only need data backup and recovery features.

Commvault does not provide exact pricing for Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery, though interested businesses can reach out to the vendor for a quote.

Likelihood to Recommend

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

I feel that Commvault's Active Directory Recovery and Testing of the recovery could be improved, but this could very well be a situation where I am not fully understanding the scope. Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery is spot-on in all other areas and will be a perfect fit for anyone with a decent-sized IT footprint.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Should you have a virtualization infrastructure based on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere, should you host several virtual machines some in production, some in acceptance, should you have a business model where you do regular upgrades and deploy new releases or just want to have a backup capability in case of business critical application requiring disaster recovery capabilities, should you keep backup footprint as small as possible, care for a community edition for smaller businesses and full edition for more corporate environment, this tool is for you.

Pros

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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It offers various backup types. If the infrastructure can handle the forever incremental or reverse incremental options, these are very efficient on space usage.
  • The interface is easy to use. There are a lot of options within the software, but it's never felt overwhelming to figure out and adjust job settings.
  • Restores are simple and offer great options. Even full VM restores are easy to do. File-level restores offer multiple ways to restore files, such as to a different location, or the same, then making copies of any collision files.

Cons

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery has developed the concept of plans that work great in smaller institutions but can hamstring large enterprises by the limited flexibility. There are situations where plans appear to be forced into decisions. Ideally, providing the ability to disable plans would be beneficial.
  • The security model is granular in respects to permissions and ability to implement it for a single object (client, user, job). Implementing the correct collection of permissions can sometimes feel like opening a padlock. This appears to be a great place to implement a wizard for guiding administrators through desired behaviors and building the appropriate security role.
David Lester | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam Backup and Recovery performance is particularly reliant on the performance capability of your backup infrastructure. Your network and disk resources WILL get taxed, so make sure to prepare properly. If your backup infrastructure is slow, your backups will be slow.
  • Backup and Recovery does have a wizard to make recommendations on how to build out the backup infrastructure for large environments, so you should have experts involved in the proper configuration.
  • Some backup/replication jobs do not process in one day. Example - We have some VMs that are quite large, so the processing of VMs can take several days when we change disk sizes.

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.

Commvault is an enterprise-level tool that we use to backup all kinds of workloads. I have implemented Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery in many Enterprise-level, Corporate banks and financial companies to mitigate their data loss and compliance with their audit requirements. I have implemented it across many platforms such as MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle, AIX, Exchange, VMware, Azure, Office 365, Hyper-V, Loutas Note, Windows FS/Unix FS backups and many cloud storage and virtual environments. Commvault DR option as well. We especially used Backup replication (Dash Copy), VM Replication (Live sync) and DB replication and VM life cycling process. Customers like the Commvault CommCell console, it is a single console solution.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery support is a Gold Standard for us. We are a ESP customer and have a designated Support Account Manager (SAM) & a Technical Account Manager (TAM) who we meet with every other week to go over any existing issues and upcoming version revisions release. But of course not all companies or organization will need this type of level of support but we have proven that this works for us due to the shear size of our environment and the number of offices we support.

Veeam support is good and the Net Promoter Score of +70 says so. However, in many cases the problems come from the hypervisor side or generation of snapshots that do not depend on Veeam and can corrupt the backup data. In general, the Veeam support does a good follow-up until determining the root problem and proceeding with the necessary remediation.

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.

(I assume this question should say "Veeam" and not "Crownpeak Universal Consent Platform")Planning is key. Planning your backup schedule, size, data restore points, replication if you're doing that, &c. Testing is also important; make sure you back something up and then do a test restore. Set up alerts so you know if things aren't working (or even if they are, always good to know that too).

Alternatives Considered

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

I was not part of the decision to adopt Commvault, and having developed and used many other backup/recovery tools I was a little skeptical that it could do everything that we needed, but I can say that I'm glad that they chose Commvault. It has delivered even more than we had counted on.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Unlike many of the vendors above, Veeam is providing a solution that scales from one workload to hundreds and fits comprehensively in any of the spaces between without compromising the core functionality and feature set that makes it such a great product. Veeam are confident in the solution they provide and with good reason, the tag line "It just works" is very appropriate

Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
enterprise storage.

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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Positive in compliance with DR and backup/recovery policies.
  • Positive ROI although smaller organizations may struggle to justify the cost.
  • Positive in terms of man-hours needed for support. Generally speaking, it doesn't need much support, once setup it can often be "forgotten."
