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.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

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.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have been using CommVault 2+ years now, and let me tell you that now we have control of our backups on almost all of our IT infrastructure across the whole organization. Basically we began to make the backup of the most critical systems (virtual and physical). After a year of use, we made an expansion and now we almost have all the systems. Some big Oracle databases are also being backup. It is a feature-rich product where we can establish different retentions policies, schedule backups based on the time and date of the lowest impact.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Commvault is being used both for internal backups and as a backup solution for our on-premises customers as well. As of now, it is the only backup solution we use for on-premises customers/systems (we use Azure Backup for systems in Azure). Commvault addresses the business problem of having a scalable, dependable, and easy to use backup solution that supports multiple backup methods.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We used CommVault to manage all the backups of our operation. A couple of years ago, we had different backup solutions to address different needs like PCs, windows servers, Linux servers, virtual environments, etc. So for each software, we had a console, and for each, we needed to set different policies. That was very difficult for the administration, for generating reports, etc. So for that, we looked for a centralized solution where we can address it all in one place and cover all the environments.

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.

Disaster recovery, as it greatly minimizes the effect on business being able to get data back quickly. The functionality is dynamic, complex, and provides us the freedom to choose infrastructure and what not, as it works with just about every major vendor. We're also a reseller, and I've seen CommVault implemented in dozens of customer datacenters.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are currently using CommVault by our IT department to backup our critical systems. We are storing backups to a storage device and retaining monthly and yearly backups for 7 years. This will address our DR needs to be able to quickly restore any of our critical servers back to any point that we have retained backups to.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have been using CommVault for the last five years in my organization. CommVault is deployed on all data protection tasks from user endpoints to all server computing. Having one solution for all data protection with Commvault helped us in making IT life simpler by creating one console for infrastructure, monitoring, management, and compliance.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I, being a solution architect in TCS, need to suggest and provide solutions to my customers for their backup requirement. With the growing requirement of a hybrid cloud solution, backup using CommServe and other components of CommVault plays a major role. It is also being used for the on-prem solution as compared to the competitors we leverage the existing alliance partnership with CommVault to get better discounts and a great solution to our customers.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

CommVault has been instrumental in obtaining a working and streamlined approach to backing up all of our department's data securely and consistently. With many painstaking hours and headaches every day with a previous backup solution, we needed something that would free up man hours wasted with troubleshooting backups but also gain confidence back with superiors with backup restoration. CommVault came in solving not only those issues but many other issues which have not only given us confidence back in our backup solution but has also freed up many hours of time with the CommVault backup engineer.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

CommVault was used by the company as our global data management platform. In simpler terms it was used as our backup solution. The IT Department was responsible for backing up all datasets and workloads for the entire organization. Due to our regulatory requirements, long term retention was required (7+ years). We were backing up approximately 50TB of data per week and retaining it for 7+ years.

CommVault allowed us to provide access to datasets for recent recoveries or for things like legal subpoenas. We used CommVault to power our disaster recovery and business continuity plans.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We migrated to Commvault in our data center back in 2005 and which point we had less than 150 systems protected. Over the years as the company grew we also expanded the use to our remote offices (over 220) and eventually we were backing up over 2400 systems between our data center and remote locations. Commvault provides all the basic data protection for our systems. We protect Windows systems and VMs as well as AIX.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Commvault is used to back up our entire physical and virtual server environment. We use the software to back up a plethora of software suites, such as SAP, AIX, MSSQL, SharePoint, and MS Server 2008-2012. We use many of the features inside of Commvault for business reporting of backups and performance metrics. We are also replicating this data to a disaster recovery site.

Commvault is our only enterprise data protection solution now in my organization. We use commvault to protect our physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure. [It's also used] for all our production and non-production data.
It is very easy to manage and a very robust solution for various [types of] data protection and it helped us to reduce our OPEX costs.

We use CommVault via an online service. At one point we had an on-premise version of it. It is very powerful, but not nearly as easy to use as other solutions such as Back-up Exec.

Used across the board, for all departments, for backup, recovery, and offsite DR. While the usual backup/recovery from disk is used, also, tape offsite is key to getting the protection we need. Daily reports and stats are regularly assessed on both the backup and recovery side of the house. It's managed by one Admin and one backup.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Commvault is being used in two areas. We have an entire Commvault environment installed in the cloud, backing up any application requesting backup in the cloud. We also have an on premise Commvault environment backing up new business/applications. Our go forward strategy in data protection is Commvault that will eventually and essentially replace our current data protection environment.

Overall, Commvault is easier to manage for our support team. It works very well. Commvault support is great and gets issues resolved very quickly.
