Pros and Cons

  • Point in time recovery of SQL databases.
  • Integration into multiple clouds for single pane management.
  • Encryption for endpoints using SaaS cloud offerings.
  • Simple archiving of data to long term storage.
  • End user self service data restore.
  • Licensing model is somewhat difficult to understand and estimate when deploying solution.
  • Legacy protocols for SaaS integrations still in place. Slow to upgrade.
  • Not cost efficient when compared to cloud integrated backup solutions.
  • There does not seem to be an offering for small companies or small deployments. Wish there was a light version for smaller clients. Wish there was a solution generator tool instead of a lengthy sales process for each new feature deployment.

Pros and Cons

  • Recent major release upgrades provide tools for pre-flight checks on the management servers if the environment is fit for upgrades or requires attention or fixes prior to a successful upgrade.
  • Recently we went through a management server consolidation exercise and it worked flawlessly and the process was pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
  • Support team is very responsive and provides confidence in solutions and good follow through until the problem is rectified or solved.
  • CommServe can manage backups for virtual machines via VSA without installing agents on virtual machines (non application aware backup)
  • Does not have any migration tools if a customer is migrating from a non-CommVault backup tool to CommVault.
  • If Full backups for Virtual Machines failed on a subclient, they can only be rerun for incrementals instead of FULL backups

Pros and Cons

  • Commvault offers the ability to recover all workloads in a single platform.
  • Their support is unmatched. When a problem arises, support is usually knowledgeable of a solution.
  • The only thing that I would like to see different is for Commvault to have a direct line that customers could call for escalated instances. No matter what the severity of your support instance is, you have to open a ticket via the web and wait for an engineer to pick it up.

Pros and Cons

  • Support is always top notch. They always exceed expectations and I am always left with a very positive experience. They always meet callback SLA's as well.
  • They have close ties to the major technology players, like NetApp, EMC and VMware to create API's making it seamless to implement new solutions.
  • Once the the solution is setup and running, it requires very little hand holding and maintenance is quite easy.
  • CommVault's products can be confusing from an architecture standpoint. discovering where each piece plays a part can be hard without some additional support
  • Training is almost a necessity if you are like us, a small organization with limited time to just learn a product on the go.
  • Licensing could be better designed for the smaller guy. They have made attempts, but some additional work is need. Not all of us are big enough for capacity licensing to make sense.
