Commvault is best known for its flagship Complete Data Protection software, which Evaluator Group covers from a data protection standpoint in a separate product brief. This document covers Commvault Complete (a combination of Commvault Backup and Recovery and Commvault Disaster Recovery) and Commvault’s complementary software – Commvault Data Governance, Commvault eDiscovery & Compliance, and Commvault File Storage Optimization (formerly bundled together as Commvault Activate) as multi-cloud data management tools. While a collection of separate products, the combination of the functionality forms Commvault’s data management strategy – including functionality for data protection, data security, compliance, data transformation, and data insights – which they call Intelligent Data Services.
Commvault Complete creates a common metadata catalog for all storage resources under protection, including on-premises and cloud-based storage infrastructure, applications and databases (details on supported sources are included in the “Usage and Deployment” section of this report).
The metadata catalog provides the foundation for cross-cloud search/visibility, control (including governance and mobility) and protection. For a streamlined administrative process, metadata can be related to policies for how the object or file should be handled. Commvault Data Governance, Commvault eDiscovery & Compliance, and Commvault File Storage Optimization are licensed as complementary, add-on products to Complete (which is sold in three stand-alone package options, as a scale-out appliance, or as-a-service).
