    Commvault Complete Data Protection

    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.
    Chris Saenz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    Zerto is well suited for disaster recovery and virtual machine replication between multiple data centers. DR testing for audit or regulations is much easier with Zerto, great reporting, dashboard etc. It is not well suited for physical server replication for disaster recovery or as a primary backup solution.
    Zach Koenig | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Commvault Complete Data Protection

    • 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
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    • Anyone with a large disk (VMDK) knows the issues of VMware snapshots. Most backup software is a "point in time backup" that uses snapshots. While the backup can be run multiple times per day the stress of the snapshot on the host and storage is eliminated by the continuous protection of Zerto log replication.
    • A client had a the disks on a VM go missing for some reason. We had them "flip the switch" for a real fail over and press the fail over button. The VM on our DR site started to come alive as the VM at the customer site was brought down. When the DR VM was fully up, automatic reverse replication started. The DR machine was available in a few minutes (to take into account different host hardware) for access. One the vm at both sites were in sync, we had the customer again repeat the fail over process and the DR site VM was turned off and the Production site VM was brought back on line. This was a 200 GB VM and the whole process was finished in about 3 hours.
    • Zerto also allows for "Test" fail overs that can be configured on many different functions, such as host, datastore, network and IP usage. Configuring the IPs is crucial to avoid inadvertent site cross contamination of the same VM.
    • Zerto can also retrieve files from any VM disk on the DR site without starting a VM. Very handy for retrieving files or directories.
    • Since Zerto is running continuous log replication, changes on the production VM are nearly instantaneously copied to the DR site. As with any data process, having sufficient bandwidth for "churn" peaks minimizes the delay in updating the DR site.

    Cons

    Commvault Complete Data Protection

    • 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.
    Will Enestvedt | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    • Moving a VM from one protection group to another could be simplified.
    • I would like to see an executive-style report of recovery and testing for upper management.
    • The ability to deploy Zerto as a virtual appliance, without the need for a windows server.

    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.

    We really like the easy setup of this replication solution, as well as the ease of management. Not to mention, our internal IT Economist determined that the Zerto solution would provide the best ROI out of the competing solutions we analyzed. So far, his calculations have been spot on, and we have saved substantially

    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.

    Usability was the primary reason we purchased the software in the first place. We had compared it to several other software products in the same area, and it was by far the easiest to set up and use. Long-term maintenance proved to be similar, with updates driven by updates to VMware and vSphere, rather than the product itself.

    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.

    Overall support is very good. We sometimes get pushback when asking Level 1 support to escalate to Level 2. This causes undue frustrations when you need a more knowledgeable support person to get involved. We've had to escalate to account reps a few times for this scenario. Zerto is very responsive and normally handles our requests very quickly.

    Commvault Complete Data Protection

    In the past it has been necessary to leverage multiple products to provide a complete data protection solution. Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery has been able to mirror the functions of competitive products while increasing functionality and management. Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery works cleanly in disparate environments that leverage dissimilar technologies and products.
    David Lester | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    We started out using Backup Exec which was in service until we virtualized our environment where it didn't perform as well at the time. Then we switched to Veeam which worked well, but then as we started needing to do migrations and off-site DR, we found ourselves relying on Zerto more often.

    For my organization, the pricing model was an upfront investment for the Zerto licenses. My organization prefers to pay upfront and not deal with month-to-month or year-to-year pricing models that most companies are moving to. But for some, the investment may be more than they can afford, and would prefer the year-to-year pricing model.

    Return on Investment

    Commvault Complete Data Protection

    • I am not privy to ROI, but just having confidence and trust that Commvault will back up whatever needs backing up, and that we will always be able to restore it quickly, allows our technical people to concentrate on the problem at hand, knowing that we do not have to worry about the safety of the data. This saves time for some very expensive human resources and shortens schedules by eliminating a whole class of data safety and disaster recovery issues.

    Zerto

    • Zerto is like having the best possible insurance ... it just works, and often provides the backups taken overnight that are key in recovering data/work between overnight backups.
    • Zerto easily enabled the move of primary datacenters by allowing easy failover to a secondary site, and failback to the primary site.
