CommVault

With the implementation of Commvault, we have backed up more information than we ever have than when we were using NetBackup. The agents that Commvault has to back up different types of data is so vast that I could almost guarantee they have what you need to get the job done. Is is a very diverse software that fits nearly every environment. The ability to replicate to a disaster recovery site has proven its worth recently when we did a DR test and it was incredibly successful as opposed to the way we had to do it with NetBackup last year.

Quest Rapid Recovery

AppAssure works well for quick access to point in time backups of Windows machines without having to do a complete restore. The virtual standby function is useful as a disaster recovery or high availability solution. Recent upgrades to the product and rebranding to Rapid Recovery look promising. If your Linux machines are mission [critical] make sure your administrators test restores so they can perform them in a timely manner should the need arise.

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • The GUI and response times are far too slow. It would be nice if this could be improved.
  • Currently you can set a blanket retention policy for all protected machines. It would be great if this could get more granular and can do protection groups of machines where you can custom set retention policy
  • Once again, policies where you can set backup times for groups rather than individual machines would be great.

I feel like our previous solution was more reliable and flexible.

Not a simple solution to use and one with a lexicon and vocabulary you will need to be familiar with in order to use the product to its potential.

Our initial installation really was not optimum. With the help from Dell Profession Services we were able to get our implementation sized correctly and better understand how to get better deduplication results

Alternatives Considered

CommVault

I am not familiar with other products, but it looks like it may be worth looking at other products now because integrations with HCI infrastructure are not up to some of the available products on the market. My expectations are met at the moment but I am not sure about the product road map and future HCI requirements.

Quest Rapid Recovery

Anything is better than Backup Exec. I believe Veeam is a far superior product in backing up VMs. Veeam does not have any agents that get installed on servers which is always a plus. It also connects directly to vCenter.CommVault to me is the ultimate solution. The ability to backup physical, VMs, SQL, exchange, applications, and even do E-Discovery make it the ultimate backup suite. If you are looking at a backup suite package to cover all your needs, i think with CommVault you need not look any further.

Return on Investment

CommVault

  • The biggest ROI investment I would have to highlight is in man hours. Despite the cost of CommVault, the countless hours that a company regains in their employees to put them to other tasks is the biggest investment that a company could gain.

Quest Rapid Recovery

  • The compression and dedupe have been great. We are able to back up 10 VMs on only a 2 TB repository. We take differentials every 15 minutes and have held on to backup data for the past 3 years.
  • The pricing of AppAssure is very competitive to the market. However, now that enterprise level backup is more of a commodity, the view of looking at AppAssure should be the Dell backup suite as whole, rather than AppAssure itself.
  • Fast recovery and mount points.
