Use Cases and Deployment Scope

  • Serbia’s Ministry of Environmental Protection is leading the way for public sector organizations to meet the government’s 2020 initiative of digitalizing citizen services. With more than 330 employees in Belgrade and across 22 locations in Serbia, the IT team needs to be able to support a variety of operating systems and facilitate field workers’ remote backups over
    the public network.
  • Our datacenter in Belgrade must be able to support secure file sharing between a host of different devices across the country. We need to ensure departments can share information without compromising on security if a device is lost or stolen. With Commvault, the organization can protect its data and safeguard services.
  • It has also increased efficiency as system administrators can now manage restores remotely from a central console rather than having to travel to site, and each employee can do data restore themselves without the involvement of IT staff.
  • With Commvault, the Ministry now has a central platform for data backup and management that can be customized to suit current and future requirements.
  • The user-friendly solution was quick and easy to set up, integrates seamlessly and offers
    comprehensive data protection. No competing solution on the market offers the same level of organic integration.
  • We have happier and more productive users thanks to its user-friendly interface, employees working in the field needed minimal training to start sorting, backing up, and sharing documents on the move.
  • Collaboration between departments has improved, while deduplication has helped reduce the organization’s data footprint more than 80%.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Commvault across our entire company. In the US, we have each location split as a division. Each division has its own media agent, storage, and permissions group. All reports go to divisional directors and staff as well as visuals for Command Center. This setup isolates each location to only be able to view their items. This reduces stress on local staff and allows me and my team to focus on big-picture disaster recovery. This setup really helps with off-loading restorations and live data to other divisions as tests or failover scenarios.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

The application is used across the whole organization that we support. It provides data protection for critical and non-critical data from a DC environment to a remote office. The tool is easy to use and offers loads of functionality from management server consolidation to media agents/clients migration without any hassles. Well documented operational documentation proves helpful when in need of references and guidance.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Commvault is our primary data protection tool and is used across the entire environment. Commvault provided us with an easier way to manage and monitor backup and restore processes from multiple environments and platforms all within a single product with a common interface and experience. The virtualization portion of the product has minimized the amount of work required for setting up and managing backups across our data center.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Choosing CommVault was an excellent choice for our organization. As part of our virtualization and consolidation effort, we made a concerted effort to end the days of several disparate backup platforms protecting different groups of systems; each with different requirements, capabilities and limitations. CommVault has unified our backup and recovery operations and provides powerful data loss protection for all of our production and test systems, physical and virtual alike. While saying that the planning and installation phases are involved would not be untrue, the time required to do it correctly pays dividends in the end, as it did with us.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have implemented Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery in many enterprise-level companies. Specifically banks and financial companies to mitigate their data loss and compliance their audit requirements. We have deployed across many platforms such as, AIX, AS400, Oracle, SQL, MySQL, Exchange, vmware, Hyper-V, O365, endpoints backup and many cloud storage solutions and virtual environments. Commvault is popular among our customers for disaster recovery options as well, specially vm replication, DB replication, backup replication and backup server failover options. Our customers like Commvault mostly because in a single console they can manage backup and replication and all above mentioned. It's been made easy to use for the administrator and they love it.

We use Commvault as a general backup solution for all on-premise backend systems and for part of our cloud environment. Our backup environment covers our setup globally, but with the largest part being located at our HQ in Denmark. The backup is managed by a team of 4, located in Denmark, China and the Philippines.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

The
breadth of coverage of the platform has met all our needs in one simple
tool. The deployment was simple, and it is a quick thing to do with a lot of
feedback and dedication from the support team to resolve any issues we raised. We now have a single platform to meet all our backup needs without a compromised backup process to back up with a suitable tool like the previous
vendors. Being able to offer the same backup service to both local and
cloud-based services has also allowed us to distribute multiple cloud
loads in the cloud, knowing that existing processes and accessibility services
can protect these loads anywhere.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have been using CommVault for over 10 years and backup pretty much everything with it across our entire enterprise. Currently we are backing up 25 virtual servers, 6 physical servers and multiple SQL databases. Once setup it's an amazing product that works extremely well, everything is controlled from a central Commcell console that makes management, deployment and monitoring much easier.

CommVault is in use throughout the organization. The primary reason for the purchase at the time was for NDMP direct to tape backup of a NetApp storage appliance. However since the initial implementation in 2008, we now use it to solve several problems. It is used for email journaling compliance, archive replication to a DR site, server, email and SQL backup.
