When agents support incremental and full stock backups which can be initiated.

Incredible backup is a kind of backup which is the one that contains only data that is new from the last backup, it consumes less media and less burden on that full backup. It also provides differential backup almost like incredible backup by storing only new data, along with consuming less media and less burden on resources.

Disadvantages of Commvault

  • They are improving the interface to make it simple, but in some cases we need to click two or three times for doing something, it makes them more accessible to cut the time it takes for them to get information. It comes to merge with. other platforms, but in some cases they have solutions backed in. Testing solutions were not really validated. There are a lot of hot fixes for the solutions which we are using right now that are what we expect. 
  • It has a maintenance release for every three months and it is always hard to know exactly what has changed in the software and they have improved a little bit on the topic by communicating what has changed but still there is a lot of room for improvement on that side. It has no easy deployment which just anybody can go in deploy, it is outside the windows machines and database which should be distributed among servers, that is a single point of failure. It definitely gives a complete view of data and has to find some of the granular and very small items, sometimes we need to find auxiliary copies of tapes.
