Highlights

Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery and Veritas NetBackup are both Data Center Backup Solutions designed to archive and restore business data. Veritas NetBackup is used by many large enterprises due to its scalability. In contrast, Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery is popular with mid-sized to large businesses.  This may be because Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery is designed to handle large, complex data infrastructure, even if it lacks the scalability Veritas offers.

Features

Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery and Veritas NetBackup both include essential data center backup features such as virtual machine snapshotting, but they each have some unique features that set them apart from each other.

Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery includes endpoint protection in addition to virtual machine snapshotting and recovery.  The addition of endpoint protection makes Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery a good choice for businesses looking for a data protection tool that covers a wider range of security needs.  Additionally, Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery offers a wide variety of integrations that fits into most IT infrastructures.

Veritas Netbackup is able to deploy rapidly, allowing businesses to very quickly implement containerized data protection.  Quick deployment could be important to businesses that do multiple backups a day and do not want to waste time on lengthy deployments.  Additionally, Veritas Netbackup includes self-service support to all users, so businesses will be able to troubleshoot any problems without issue.

Limitations

Although Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery and Veritas NetBackup both include data center backup features, they also have a few limitations that are important to be aware of.

Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery deploys slowly compared to Veritas NetBackup.  If your business value rapid deployment, it may be worth considering Veritas NetBackup.  Additionally, Comvault Complete Backup and Recovery does not include self-service support out of the box. Lack of self-service support could be an issue for businesses that expect to need heavy support.

Veritas NetBackup provides robust data center backup features but doesn’t provide endpoint security.  Businesses looking for a wider variety of features beyond simple data center backup may consider other options. Additionally, Veritas Netbackup doesn’t have as many out of the box integrations as Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery, so businesses with many third-party solutions that need support may consider an easier to implement option. 

Pricing

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

Pricing for Veritas NetBackup depends on the license chosen, but users can expect to pay around $189.00 per month for the software.

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.

Like most enterprise backup applications, Symantec NetBackup (NBU) suffers from complexity. Using and understanding advanced features can be challenging at times. Real world experience is needed to know if they are worth the time to implement. On the other hand I have found NBU relativity easy to use with a little training from just a simple backup scheduling and restore perspective.

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

Veritas NetBackup

  • Upgrades are typically easy and normally have either no issues or very few that are easily resolved (wait a month or 2 before upgrading)
  • Using accelerator for the vm environment works well, and file level restores have been successful
  • Full vm recovery has worked every time
  • Backing up a physical server and restoring to a vm works as described
  • GRT Exchange backups are pretty easy, to setup
  • File level restores are simple

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.

Veritas NetBackup

  • The GUI is very old looking. This does not kill the performance, it just looks to be 10 years old.
  • Some things need to be done from the CLI(command line interface). if you have not used this before it will take some learning and a good understanding of Linux.

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.

Veritas continues to keep up with the backup game. There virtual machine backup capabilities are now top notch, and I believe they will prove valuable when our cloud presence demands a backup solution.

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.

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.

Veritas support is very prompt and the acknowledgement/followup is hugely appreciable. They go deep to the issue and provide you satisfactory solutions. Creating ticket in portal is also very easy, does not adhere to severity priority, even if Sev2 response is very quick.

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

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.

CrashPlan has the capability to sync data with a cloud storage source. This is great for a workstation where data is typically only for one user. However, Netbackup does a much better job for maintaining multiple levels of file restores for Enterprise Servers. Netbackup has a superior management console that does not rely on Cloud services in the event of an internet outage.

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

Veritas NetBackup

  • We never experienced a significant system or data loss during the time we used NetBackup. We restored individuals files and small databases based upon user mistakes, but we never had to implement a DR plan. From that aspect, it is difficult to evaluate the ROI. Backups are a commodity service. Features are very similar across multiple tools. Once you decide to stay on-prem or move to the cloud, the list of options are narrowed. Then it becomes a matter of price.
  • From an administration and support perspective, the ROI is low. Vendor technical support is not always responsive. The first two tiers of support are not knowledgeable and their typical recommendation is to read the white paper. My small team spent a lot of time troubleshooting NetBackup, often without much vendor help.
