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.

As mentioned above, Commvault is a tool that allows you to set up a complete system from one place and for all types of backup that exist in a particular organization. It is easy to use for end users as well as system administrators. When colleagues want to see or hear about the Commvault solution, I am always happy to invite them to look at the system at work.

Nothing is perfect, nor never will it be. Commvault knows this. They also take that and spin into a way that allows them to mold and construct a "Perfect for YOU" application and solution. Where the shortfalls of most applications present hardships, Commvault thrives on these issues to make a great product. The need to address particular issues within your environment allows them to mold this solution to exactly what you need and want. That in itself is as perfect as I can ask for.
Too often the "out of the box" solution just doesn't cut it. Our entire environment is this exact scenario. Nothing in our company is cookie cutter. But I know how I want it to work and flow. I have been able to construct an operable and manageable environment with the help and guidance of this amazing team of engineers and developers.

We have distributed sites over poor networks, but the client side de-duplication makes a real difference. The single pane of GUI makes familiarization easier, especially for customer service staff. Pre- and post-execution scripts are great. Good support for Microsoft products including clusters and Active Directory. Hyper-V and VMware are all supported with new machines automatically added.

Commvault offers very good backup software for big enterprise companies. It also has archives and replications in single software. Additionally, we can use workflow for programming, write scripts for backups, monthly restore tests, get snap and mount on the storage, or whatever else. Reports are very useful and user-friendly.

CommVault is an eEnterprise scale backup solution that is able to provide data protection from ROBO to Regional/Global DC. Application aware plugins provide hot backup. AuxCopy features provide a secondary level of data protection to any medium for long-term data protection.

Dedupe tools are excellent. However, there are limitations and it would not work for clients with a DB sitting on ROBO environment.

It is well suited to use with customers like banks and finance companies because Commvault is capable of catering all backups, replication and compliances. If the customer is looking only for replication then they should not go for Commvault. People should carefully select the licenses by talking to the vendor so that they can help them for their environment.

CommVault can backup just a few servers but where it shines is in larger environments with many servers scattered in different offices running different OS's. You can everything up to single location, manage and deploy everything everything from one console. It can eliminate multiple backup hardware scattered all over the related individual backup problem and centralize everything.

CommVault is great for compliance and backup scenarios. The server backups are seamless and just work! Their NDMP backup for our NetApp appliances are fantastic and unless you have hardware issues, it works every time.

CommVault is less suited for those smaller organization that have a limited budget and are looking for a great backup solution. If you are only looking for server backup, CommVault may be less attractive.

It is difficult to imagine a scenario where CommVault is not well suited from a feature and functionality perspective. It can be difficult to understand licensing which can lead to feature misunderstandings but all in all CommVault is one of the best products in the data management arena

Commvault is an enterprise data management solution. It might not be a perfect fit for SMB markets. In mid-sized and enterprise markets, CommVault is the best fit, as it covers all data-related challenges. In hybrid cloud infrastructures, things get a lot more complex to manage, therefore protection of all your data, wherever it is located, needs to be well protected.
