The licensing model has recently been overhauled and simplified Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The product can feel complex and prone to being particular and throwing errors. This is due to the large and far reaching nature and interactions with systems it is backing up.

The logs do contain all the information you need, but can equally be overwhelming and time consuming to fully understand - however that does promote a better understanding of the product and the systems you are backing up! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

You have all in one software and in just an administration console. The deduplication and compression ratio you get from the backups help you a lot to store all backup depending of the policies of retention that you need.

We have several agents or APIs to do better backups of our applications, bare metal, virtual machines, etc Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

To understand all the function or the capabilities is hard, you must take a course to understand how simpana works. The admin console is not to intuitive so you need to figure out where are the option that you need. For this is mandatory take a course if is the first time you use commvoult. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The price is quite expensive but not for all is the leader at this moment. If you will get for firsts time commvault I recommend to take a certificate course because the administration is quite difficult Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have the security that our backup works and now we can restore with the confidence that the backup will work.

We can do a backup of our ecosystem, we can use the APIs to do better backups of our application like Oracle, MSQL, SharePoint, windows server, Linux server, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Well let me tell you that Commvault its really a full feature set of backup solutions for all your applications and virtual environment needs. I like the fact that in a single pane of glass I can have all my physical and virtual environments backup. You can define a a very customize backup policies that depends of the application needs. We use it mostly for oracle databases and VMware virtual environment. You can have multiple copies and algo the archiving feature its really neat. Just let your policies handle the automated backup jobs and your're good to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Ok. let me tell you that in order to use the software to its full extend, you will need to take training. You need to know very well how policies are define and hoy can be schedule and use. So I have to say that it is not a intiuitive product. It has a little of complex to administer it the right way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do a PoC to know how the backup solution works and if it is what are you looking for. Also if you are buying, then is a must to include training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Commvault we had around 3 tools to do the backups of all our applications (virtual and physical), now that we have it for over 2 years, we have automated the backup process really well. Just sit down and let commvault do its stuff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

One of my favorite features of Commvault is the reliability of backups and the reporting features. When you set up scheduled backups, you can rest comfortably knowing they'll complete. If there is a failure, you get near immediate notification of the failure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I dislike the GUI - it is a little hard to navigate until you really learn the ins and outs of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I don't think there is an environment that you could use today that Commvault can't backup. Their integration points are outstanding. The UI is pretty intuitive considering the power you wield with your mouse. It's always reliable, especially when it comes to restoring your data, provided that your tapes, disk, etc. are available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Cost & complexity. Deploying Commvault is not for the faint of heart. There are ISO upon ISO needing to be fed to deploy features. Last time I downloaded, it was nearing 10GB in size. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Every feature ever asked for from the inception of the product is still within its administrative console and this can cause issues in use. It's a double-edged sword. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

CommVault was a good platform with a lot of powerful tools like dedupe and archiving. Once setup things ran very well. Probably the best part was that it was a backup software and not particular about what storage medium you use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In retrospect, we really needed a person dedicated just to the commvault product to stay on top of the backup and recovery process. With employee turnover, much has to be retrained and retaught to keep the system operational. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you can dedicate plenty of internal resource to keep this system running. Without a dedicated Comvault administrator, this product becomes wieldy and unstable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Deduplication of data and archiving of old stale data was super important in our decision to use CommVault. We also already had a lot of storage medium to use, so we didn't want to have to buy more storage just for backup. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

well the problems that we solved is that we didn't have to have a "dedicated" backup administrator. the simplicity of this product allowed all of the members of our team to be able to quickly and easily pick up on how this product runs and what's going on with it on a daily basis.
