Overall Satisfaction with Commvault

  • Used to backup all corporate and research data from on-prem and Cloud ICT systems across the organization.
  • Provides an enterprise level solution that supports our backup and archival strategy.
  • Management of backup sets
  • Replication of backup sets to cloud storage
  • Backup of Cloud data to on-prem storage repositories
  • Some development on BCP capabilities would be an advantage
  • Significant reduction in backup administration compared to previous solution
  • Greater DR capability (replication to Cloud) giving increased assurance
It offers significantly better functionality at a better cost.
Received support from a local provider (backed off by Commvault). Provider is responsive and knowledgable.

Would you buy Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery again?

Yes

Replicate on-prem backups to Azure blob storage and replicate cloud data (eg SPO, ODFB) to on-prem backup sets. This allows us to have full control of the backup and archive process irrespective of the Cloud providers retention policies.
Yes, it gives control of retention polices to the data owner.
No ransomware incidents, however we use this functionality within Commvault to provide protection.
Has helped ensure we can adhere to backup, archive, and retention policies.
Yes - Veritas BackupExec - We had simply outgrown this solution. Backups could not complete in time, and we were restricted to only backing up on-prem data sets to on-prem online storage and/or tape.
  • Excellent for enterprise backups
  • Not so good to support business continuity strategies (eg snapshotting to the Cloud to provide full offsite resilience of ICT systems)
